Glossary: Conductive Flooring Material

A flooring material is conductive if it has a resistance to ground of less than or equal to 1.0 x 10E6 ohms.

Note: Conductivity does not guarantee low charge generation. A conductive or even highly conductive floor can generate enough static to damage or destroy sensitive components. To prevent static, flooring materials must measure in the required resistance range and either be low charge generating or used in conjunction with special ESD footwear.
