ESD/Conductive and Anti-Static Flooring: The Differences
Are you looking for a flooring solution that deals with static build-up? Then you need to understand the difference between anti-static and electrostatic discharge (ESD) flooring.
A build-up of static electricity occurs when a non-conductive object rubs against another non-conductive object. Both anti-static flooring and ESD flooring are solutions to this problem in the workplace, but in order to determine whether you need ESD or anti-static you need to understand your environment and requirements.
The Key Differences Between ESD and Anti-Static
Both ESD and anti-static flooring prevent the build-up of static electricity as people walk across the floor. Anti-static floors have a coating or chemical additive that dissipates static across its surface so you never build up enough charge to get a shock. ESD is a much more robust solution that delivers greater long-term results because it is actually earthed.
