The use of VPT conductive or static dissipative
floor covering checks the influence of electrostatic
in the sensitive work areas. The effects
of electrostatic influence is very serious and many
include damage to integrated circuits in
semiconductor production and loss of valuable
directly by build up of static electricity. Static discharge may also cause inadvertent
inflammable and explosive substances.
When two objects with electrostatic charge come
into contact, electron movement occurs with
electrification to positive and negative poles which
are stationary at the points of mutual contact.
Direct action against these points will cause
instantaneous electric discharge, resulting in
damage, pollution or malfunction. Both
UL and NFPA strongley recommend the use of
