Glossary: The “Sweet Spot”
Buyers and specifiers often question whether an ESD floor should be static dissipative or conductive. Which category – and resistance range – is best for a specific application depends on a combination of factors, including: electrical resistance standards for the particular industry (standards vary across industries); the composition of the flooring material and its potential for charge generation; and which type/s of footwear will be worn in the space.
For safety and optimal performance, Staticworx recommends that flooring materials measure in the resistance range we call the “Sweet Spot.”
