Chair casters often act as tiny ball mills grinding dirt, wire clippings even nuts and bolts deep into your hard surface flooring and even bare concrete. Results: Unsightly scratches, gouges and DIRT. The problem is compounded in electronic assembly by the need for advanced electrostatic control. Not only must the mat protect the flooring, it must provide unparalleled electrical conductivity in order to dissipate the electrostatic potential generated by the contact and separation of the chair casters rolling on the matting or the technician walking on the mat.
Prior to the new standards antistatic floor mats merely had to provide an electrical resistance to ground slightly below 1.0E09. But with today's new requirements the ESD flooring (or matting) surface must fall in the conductive range of <1.0E06 to provide the recommended resistance between the operator / heel grounders and floor matting surface of <3.5E07. Why the changes? Many sophisticated components are simply too susceptible to damage from even low voltage electrostatic potential.
Many ordinary anti-static mats rely on the ambient humidity in the environment to render the mats even slightly conductive. When the humidity is high (>60% rH) they sometimes meet the old specifications for electrical conductivity (coming in slightly below 1.0E09) BUT when the humidity drops they become insulative! A mat's electrical conductivity to ground tells the tale. Does this normal antistatic mat really work? Not really. A piece of dry wood comes in about as conductive as this popular mat AND it's not even close to being conductive enough to comply with the latest requirements of ANSI ESD S 20.20 for conductive flooring or 97.1 technician / heel straps / flooring requirements.
Our UltraStatic Control Chair mats are custom manufactured here in Colorado using our Titanium static conductive (not mere anti static) ESD flooring sheet vinyl. This material features an unbelievably hard wear resistant top surface laminated to a full surface conductive backing and provides ULTIMATE permanent static conductivity in all environments and at all humidity levels.
Your custom cut ESD floor mat comes complete with industry approved ground cord and full electrical certification using the latest test methods! United's Mission Critical ESD Floor Mats Tame the Static Beast BEFORE it Takes Another Byte!
