ESD & Anti-Static
ESD and static control products protect work areas and equipment from the damaging effects of ESD and static. Electrostatic discharge happens when a charge is transferred between two objects when a high electrostatic field has developed between them. In its most severe form, ESD creates sparks and can result in explosions in environments containing combustibles such as gas or fuel. In mild ESD events, which cause no spark or sound, damage to electronics can occur and result in product degradation or failure. ESD and static control products include a wide range of items designed to control electrostatic buildup. These products include anti-static packaging, grounding workstations and monitoring supplies, anti-static workwear and anti-static organizers.
