Electrostatic discharge (abbreviated to ESD) can be a serious problem in the electronics industry, therefore ESD equipment is essential in such environments
ESD is a sudden electric current that flows between two objects caused by direct contact or induced by an electrostatic field.
This build-up and sudden surge of static electricity can cause permanent damage to integrated circuits which are made from semiconductor materials. ESD equipment can help to protect users and components from the effects of static build-up.
COBA supplies a range of ESD anti-fatigue floor mats, such as Cobastat and Senso Dial as well as accessories for the user including ESD wristbands and heel grounders. There is also ESD protection for the workbench in the form of HR Matting and Benchstat static-dissipative mats.
