Anti-static and ESD (electrostatic discharge) equipment prevent against static electricity, which produces an electrostatic discharge. These types of products are commonly used in the electronics manufacturing, assembly, and production industries to avoid damage to products and harm to workers. Electrostatic discharge in these environments can cause a range of harmful effects, from product damage and failure to explosions and fires.
Create an ESD-safe work station, also known as an electrostatic protective area (EPA) with anti-static mats, grounding cords, and shoe grounders that greatly reduce static electricity buildup in workers’ bodies. Products like anti-static bubble wrap and conductive boxes also reduce damage to electronics during shipping operations.
