ESD floor coverings and ESD protection zones

Electrostatic charges can cause problems in many areas, especially in the electronics industry. There they can lead to malfunctions of components or devices. To minimize these risks, it is important that suitable measures are taken to protect against electrostatic discharge (ESD) in ESD-sensitive areas.

ESD floor coverings are an important part of these measures. These coverings have a low resistance value so that electrostatic charges can dissipate quickly. This reduces the risk of a dangerous discharge.

be made of different materials, such as PVC, linoleum, rubber or carpet. The choice of the right floor covering depends on the respective requirements.

In addition to ESD floor coverings, ESD protection zones are also important. These zones are separated from the rest of the area by suitable measures. This ensures that only people and objects with a low resistance value can enter the zones.

ESD protection zones can be identified by floor markings, safety doors or other measures.

ESD cleaning agents

Cleaning ESD floor coverings is important to maintain protection against electrostatic discharge. Care must be taken to ensure that the cleaning agents do not increase the resistance value of the floor covering.

There are special cleaning agents that are ESD-certified for cleaning ESD floor coverings. These agents are formulated in such a way that they do not affect the resistance value of the floor covering.
