What Is Conductive Flooring? How Is It Different from Anti-Static and Non-Conductive Flooring?

Sticky post

What is Conductive Flooring? For the full guide to ANSI/ESD S20.20 flooring specifications, see here. Electrically conductive flooring is sometimes (semi-accurately) referred to as anti-static conductive flooring, which is defined by having an electric resistance of between 104 and 1015 Ohms. Conductive… Continue Reading →
