Welcome to the ESD library of articles, white papers, test information, and ESD dictionary. This is the best place to find articles published in industry magazines including Conformity Magazine, published (vetted) objective information, whitepapers and studies about almost anything you would like to know regarding static control flooring.
We suggest watching this video, "Antistatic Flooring: Electronics Manufacturing Is Different Than Critical Environments" before you begin researching Anti Static and ESD flooring. This video explains the difference in strategies for eliminating static in end user environments (mission critical environments) versus static control in electronics manufacturing environments. these environments are very different and you should not specify flooring based on inappropriate standards for the space you plan to outfit.
