Plastex Matting News
Two versions on anti-static matting are now available from international manufacturer Plastic Extruders Ltd. Both products are semi-conductive and give personnel low voltage protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD) which is not only physically unpleasant but can affect or damage electrical components.
The mattings are tested and certified as ESD products. Earthing leads are available for when the mats are used in short lengths or the floor below is well insulated.
Zedland is recommended for clean rooms, dry areas and other static-sensitive environments. The patented high density foam matting incorporates ESD properties with superior anti fatigue performance, which reduces tiredness. The vinyl foam construction is very hard wearing and will also deaden sound. In dark grey or blue, it is available in various module sizes or roll lengths up to 18m long.
Vynastat, believed to be the only ESD open grid matting available in rools up to 10m long, is recommended for industrial and less clean areas. The open grid format will help to shed debris whilst providing continuous protection because of its 100% semi-conductive construction. The flexible PVC matting offers additional benefits of being resistant to oils or chemicals and is slip resistant and comfortable underfoot.
