The Protection of Electrostatic Discharge Susceptible Items Floor Materials Characterization of Materials
|Publication Date:||15 July 2013|
This standard test method establishes procedures for measuring the electrical resistance of floor materials where protection of ESD susceptible items is required. The resistances measured here are from the top surface of the flooring material to its groundable point (or the ground reference) and from top surface to top surface locations. This test method tests conductive and dissipative flooring materials.
This standard test method provides procedures for measuring the electrical resistance of floor materials used for the control of electrostatic charge and discharge. It also provides test methods for the qualification of floor materials prior to their installation or application, as well as test methods for acceptance and monitoring of floor materials after installation or application.
