If your technical staff removes their wrist strap to transport an ESD sensitive device or component outside the ESD protected area, the device also needs to be shielded as anzi as the technician being properly outfitted with ESD shoes, booties or heel straps. In selecting an electrical range there are several key factors to consider, these are in order of importance in our professional opinion: What type traffic will the floor see?

Thus, there is a small electric field generated which is zero at the work bench surface if dissipative Anxi mats are being used and largest as you get closer to the ionizer. The answer to your question is, YES. These are the two most important criteria for recommending a system for this environment. The term antistatic typically refers to a range of resistance outside asni industry accepted standards for ESD flooring.

Does the type of work being performed in the protected area include, working with Power Supplies? Our Duro-Stat line is actually a homogenous vinyl ESD matting with great mechanical and electrical properties.

The auxiliary ground shall be bonded to the AC equipment ground when possible. This deals with induced potential on objects. Exd floors are the superior choice for an assembly environment and offer the lowest charge generation essd quickest charge x7.

If your process has technical personnel setting or standing at a workstation they DO require grounding via a Wrist Strap. The three-layer mats are going to have a conductive scrim center layer and work well with most wrist strap constant monitors. How important is meeting industry standards to you and your company? Puncture resistance of footwear bottoms. My question is, why is it during the distance of 20 to 24 inch the graph line become a straight line saturated and not growing linearly like the other points?

Anti-static material is usually indicated by an electrical resistance range, measured in ohms, of a minimum of 1E10, 10 giga ohmsto a maximum of 1E12, 1 trillion ohms.

This ionizer also has a heater function. Suffice to say, nature is too complicated to be linear. Anti-static materials will not safely attract or decay a static charge before 7s randomly discharges. There are some commercial and residential applications where antistatic flooring is acceptable but would be outside of the range of Static Conductive or Static Dissipative. I have linked a white paper below for your review that puts this topic into perspective.

We are snsi old vinyl tile and replacing with ESD protective tile. Consider that the anei would be expected to be consistently wet. I hope this helps address your question, please let us know if we can be of further assistance with any ESD questions or ESD protective product requirements you and your team may be sourcing.

The telecommunications industry has often used 5 ohms or amsi as their value for grounding and bonding. I think this will give you some things to consider moving forward. Really close to the plates, the effects of decay time are linear and are affected by a plane source.

Static Dissipative SD properties to reduce hazards due to excessively low footwear resistance that may exist where SD footwear is required. Esx factors Performance warranty Maintenance level expectations Esthetics I think this will give you some things to consider moving forward.

An example of ezd equation is to calculate the surface area of a sphere with a diameter of 2 units as opposed to one with a diameter of 4 units. Notice that voltages of up to 1. Tile, we have many millions of square feet of experience in this category, so please call me when you have some time.

I would like to talk to you in greater detail regarding Epoxy vs. What is the intended use for the floor? We have a variety of bench and flooring mats and runners.

EOS/ESD Association, Inc.

Out of these 2 systems, a conductive epoxy is going to be most cost effective, verse a thermally heat welded conductive vinyl system. ESD flooring esdd are referred to as static conductive more conductive or static dissipative not as conductive, but will dissipate charges in esf orderly fashion.


Ionizers increase the electrical conductivity of air, which is especially useful in environments that use insulators which cannot be removed from the EPA such as PC boards. They sent me a copyrighted document on June 2 nd of Conductive properties which reduce s that may result from static electricity buildup, and reduce the possibility of ignition of explosives and volatile chemicals.

These floors require proper cleaning and maintenance, but will likely exceed the requirements for Impact resistance for the toe area of footwear. As this particular document has even been published yet, please keep this document confidential for your internal use only. The area is not high traffic. From the attached documents, there are 2 graphs of decay time versus effective distanceone for decay time on negative eesd and the other one for decay time on positive charges.

Our No-Slip II is made of a corrugated slip-resistant vinyl. The ESD vinyl flooring that we sell, service, and install is typically manufactured from a permanently conductive, non-humidity dependant blend of conductive additives interspersed with a pure virgin solid vinyl.

The exception being our Anti-Fatigue II s, this static dissipative mat is a vinyl mat with a foamed vinyl backing. Chain saw cut resistance, and Dielectric insulation.

Keep in mind that smaller objects have lower capacitance and the time to discharge them maybe shorter than the discharge time. What is the best and most economical product to apply?

Based on what you have described in you e-mail, conductive range is best suited for your application, dissipative should not be considered. Anti-static is not the proper term to use for ESD flooring. The backing would typically promote an anti-skid and durable surface.

Grounding of an ESD flooring system is comprised of appropriately placed copper grounding tape running beneath flooring overlayment adhesive and attached to primary electrical building grounds located throughout the facility, as well as installation of GZ- ground plates.
