Glossary: Conductive Adhesive

Conductive adhesive is an electrically conductive glue used to create a mechanical bond between a subfloor and a static-control floor. Installed over the subfloor, the adhesive forms a tacky plane with conductive properties. Copper strips connect the adhesive and flooring tiles to ground, unifying the electrical potential of the adhesive, all floor tiles, and the people and machinery on the flooring surface.

Note: the conductive adhesive should always be more conductive than the flooring material.
