What's the usage of ESD shoes?


Some buyers think that wearing anti-static clothes can discharge static electricity, but do not wear anti-static shoes or good anti-static ground, anti-static effect will be extremely poor. Why should you have a pair of anti-static shoes?
Anti-static shoes are protective shoes that can eliminate static electricity from the human body and prevent electric shocks below 250V. They should be produced according to the standard of GB4385-1995. The ordinary insulation shoes are but this effect is not, and even conductive shoes have a bad point with it, conductive shoes are good conductivity, can eliminate the body's static electricity accumulation in a short time.

 The role of anti-static shoes is to guide the static electricity from the human body to the earth, thus eliminating the static electricity of the human body, and at the same time effectively suppressing the dust generated by the people walking in the clean room. Everyone needs to pay attention: anti-static shoes are not allowed to wear out of the workplace!

Anti-static shoes are mainly used in places where electrostatic hazards may occur, such as burning, explosion, etc. (such as petroleum, chemical, coal, printing, rubber, medical, purification, electronics, etc.) Anti-static shoes and conductive shoes should not be worn at the same time when wearing insulated thick wool socks and insulated insoles, anti-static shoes for use as insulating shoes. The place where anti-static shoes are used should be anti-static floor, and the place where conductive shoes are used should be conductive floor. Anti-static shoes should be used in conjunction with anti-static clothing, pay attention to the product's clean, waterproof, moisture-proof. The resistance test shall be performed once during the wearing process, generally not exceeding 200 hours. If the resistance is not within the specified range, it cannot be used as anti-static shoes.

    If you go out of the workplace, it may cause the wear of anti-static shoes, resulting in a decrease in the static conductivity of anti-static shoes, and more severely leading to ESD accidents in production. Anti-static shoes belong to functional work shoes and have a certain service life. With the passage of time, antistatic effects will gradually decrease. If you wear it out often, it will be easy to carry some tiny dust, affect its cleanliness, lead to anti-static performance, and shorten the life of electrostatic shoes.
     Because anti-static shoes are very important for the role of anti-static workshop, so all production workshop staff should learn more about anti-static shoes knowledge, according to the requirements of electrostatic protection, if necessary, organize personnel to carry out anti-static training, so that production can be guaranteed ESD safety
