FAQ: What is “the sweet spot” in ESD flooring?
The “sweet spot,” or ideal resistance, is not an absolute number. Rather, it’s a range—i.e., between 1.0 x 10E5 and 1.0 x 10E8 ohms (or between 100,000 and 100,000,000 ohms).
Where your floor should fall within the range depends upon your application and environment. To find out which static-control floor is right for you, see our Guide to ESD Flooring Selection.
