Glossary: Static-resistant Resilient Flooring
A durable, stain-resistant floor-covering with ergonomic features and low charge-generating (formerly antistatic/anti-static) properties. Describing a flooring material as static resistant does not mean the material can also ground or dissipate static electricity.
A static-resistant flooring material could inhibit static generation but lack the conductive properties necessary for grounding static charges. Likewise, a resilient ESD floor material—vinyl, for example—may be conductive enough to ground charges, and still generate enough static to cause an ESD event.
The ideal static-control floor covering material should be both groundable and low charge generating.
