What ESD is
It is an electrical discharge caused by the transfer of static electricity from one object to another. The electrical discharge can form by rubbing and separation between two different materials; for example by walking on synthetic floors, by rubbing the body on synthetic clothing, by moving plastic containers and by unrolling adhesive PVC tape.
Environments of use of ESD footwear
Footwear in the ESD line guarantees high electrostatic dissipation in environments with electronically controlled machinery, assembly of microchips or transistors, clean rooms, chemical industries and
environments with explosion risks. We are not talking about PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) based on the guideline 89/686/CE but about footwear having the purpose to protect sensitive electronic devices (not the operator) from electrostatic discharge.
