In static control, as in any industry, the same questions and concerns arise again and again.
For instance: Does concrete provide adequate static protection? What’s the difference between conductive and static-dissipative? Or: Do I need copper to ground an ESD floor?
In this section, you’ll find answers to these and other commonly asked questions. We’ll continue to add to these pages, so stop by from time to time to see what’s new.

Does the adhesive in an ESD flooring installation have to be conductive?
Conductive adhesive forms a ground plane that brings all tiles in a contiguous space to the same electrical potential. If you didn’t use conductive adhesive, each tile would be an island with no path to ground and no interconnectivity to the other tiles in the installation.
