Conductive adhesives act as a ground plane, providing electrical continuity between every ESD tile in a room. They don’t just hold the floor in place; they pull static away form the tile surface because electricity flows to the path of least resistance. When static charges contact the top of the floor, they dissipate through the floor to the conductive adhesive ground plane and on to ground – safely and effectively. Conductive adhesives are the path of least resistance.
Without conductive adhesives, ESD tiles would have no place to discharge unwanted static charges; every tile would be like an isolated island – charges would be stuck on individual tiles with no place to go. Staticworx® conductive adhesives enable an ESD floor to do its job by conducting static electricity back to the earth.Read more
