ESD safe garments are clothing with conductive properties. ESD-Smocks must protect the electrical charges and discharges. In practice this means that in the ESD textile a conductive yarn is woven into a specific pattern. This pattern can take many forms which need to meet the international accepted ESD-standards, the “Grid” is the only option. This pattern must be taken to ensure that controlled loads are discharged. The conductive yarns may not be more than 10mm apart. ESD clothing behaves as shielding packaging only in reverse. ESD clothing protects your ESD-sensitive components by wrapping your employees in ESD shielding clothing.
