FAQ: Are all carpet lines antistatic?

Sweeping fibers from ESD carpetAll ESD carpet tile is antistatic. With ESD tile conductive properties are woven into the yarn strands and the conductive or static-dissipative yarn strands act like tiny brushes, brushing static from shoe soles as people walk. Standard carpet is sprayed with a topical anti-stat that prevents people walking on the floor from feeling a static shock. This topical anti-stat is temporary, the reason you might suddenly feel a shock from a floor that was “static free.” Standard carpet has no conductive properties, cannot be grounded, and cannot come close to preventing static generation at the minute voltages that can damage or destroy electronic equipment.
