Our comprehensive glossary provides definitions of the most common ESD terms.
"Any carpeting or floor tiles should have a resistance to ground between 10E6 and 10E10 ohms when measured using the method of ESD-S7.1."Note: Staticworx does not recommend flooring with electrical resistance above 1.0 x 10E8. Time and environmental changes can affect the performance of ESD flooring materials. If a material measuring ≥ 1.0 x 10E8 were to lose conductivity—the floor dries out over time or relative humidity drops—the floor could become too resistant to discharge static to ground. Floors measuring above 1.0 x 10E9 do not meet resistance parameters outlined in ANSI/ESD S20.20.
Ohm’s Law + i=V/r Current (i) in amps equals voltage (V) divided by resistance (r) in ohms (Ω)Note: Calculated current may differ from the actual current measured in laboratory tests.
Not to be confused with computer grade or low kV carpet materials.
Ohm’s Law + i=V/r Current (i) in amps equals voltage (V) divided by resistance (r) in ohms (Ω)
The term "static dissipative" should not be confused with the terms "conductive," "antistatic" or "low charge generating."A static-control floor can be dissipative (or conductive) and still generate charges significant enough to cause an ESD event.Note: the secondary definition below does NOT apply to ESD flooring or flooring materials.2) Another definition of static dissipative is: a material that can conduct an electrical charge and has an inherent resistivity range between 1 x 10E4 ohms and 1 x 10E11 ohms. Sometimes referred to as electrically dissipative.
With Staticworx ESD flooring, you never have to choose between performance and aesthetics. Our beautiful, high quality ESD carpet tile, vinyl, EC rubber tile and sheet goods, and ESD epoxy floors are as beautiful as they are functional.
