ESD flooring is required to protect most types of electronics parts, which are ultra-sensitive to static electricity.
FAQ: Is bare concrete an acceptable ESD floor?
Unsealed concrete can be conductive and may adequately control static, depending upon the relative humidity (rH) in the concrete itself. However bare concrete is rarely used as an ESD floor. Because rH varies, its conductivity is unreliable. Unsealed concrete is also unattractive and generates significant particulate.
