ESD tape is the perfect solution to identify ESD holding areas. The quality is outstanding! It hasn’t peeled or smudged since using it.
Lake Oswego, OR (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
Electrostatic discharge known as ESD can cause irreparable damage in components or complete device failure. One solution to avoid ESD damage is through handling the module or component only in an area that has its working surfaces, floor coverings, and chairs connected to a known ground. Creative Safety Supply is now offering Industrial ESD Floor Tape that can be applied to areas identifying them as an ESD protected or restricted area.
ESD floor tape is incredibly durable and works very well in most industrial traffic areas including forklift traffic. Each roll is 50 feet in length and available in 2”, 3”, and 4” widths. Eleven different versions of text and graphics to identify an ESD area are provided through Creative Safety Supply. ESD tape can be removed when it is no longer required and will leave no residue behind. ESD tape is about as thick as a credit card and has tapered edges making it easier for traffic and carts to glide over it.
Products produced on site or received from an outside source have the potential for ESD and should be packaged in an ESD shielding bag until it is ready to be moved to a new location. They should never be stacked on top of each other or on books, papers, or other materials in the work area. Modules and components should only be placed in anti-static bags or on working surfaces that have been identified with ESD floor tape.
A plant manager commented, “ESD tape is the perfect solution to identify ESD holding areas. The quality is outstanding! It hasn’t peeled or smudged since using it.”
