Explore the Effectiveness of Grounding Mats for Considerably Eliminating Static Electricity


Grounding Mats

Know More About Grounding Mats:

Grounding mats are used to help eliminate static electricity. Mats are able to do this by controlling the resistance. Some mats allow you to connect an anti-static wrist strap to them. The material, thickness, hardness, resistance and tolerance are important to know when choosing the mats. The decay time is also important to know that can range from 100 volts to 500 volts. Temperature resistance is also important to know. Some grounding mats are able to withstand soldering iron contact at 250 degrees or environmental temperatures up to 600 degrees. 3M is a manufacture of grounding mats.

They carry mats that have a new formula that consists of a three layer construction mat. The top layer consists of dissipative vinyl that has sufficiently low resistance to discharge static laden conductors. The middle layer consists of a highly-conductive scrim that provides the main discharge path to the ground and the bottom layer consists of static-dissipative foam. The third layer foam provides durable nonskid cushion. Some of the benefits of grounding mats are: they reduce glare and prevent parts from slipping, allow mat to remain flat and prevent curled edges, ensure rapid safe static drain, they have durable surfaces that withstand high temperatures, solder, flux, and harsh chemicals, ensure conformity to personal and environmental safety standards, and provide color stability.
