Electro Static Dissipative (ESD)
Monarch ESD Floor Toppings provide a path for the charge to
flow to ground, thereby neutralizing and providing shield from
malfunctioning. They quickly and reliably lead off any charges on
personnel and objects through the floor to earth potential.
Immediately after the subject steps onto an ESD floor the charge is reduced to zero as the static electricity travels from the body, through the floor and out to ground. The coating dissipate@ 5000-volt charge to zero in<0.1 seconds (22°C@12%RH). Use Megho Meter to test resistivity on the floor Ohms surface resistance. This will determine whether the floor is in the conductive, dissipative, anti-static or insulative range.
