ESD Shoe is mainly used to prevent static on human body to avoid combustion and explosion, for example Rubber, Chemical Industry, Printing, Medical, Electronic Factory, etc. At the meantime, ESD Shoes are able to protect human body from electric shock (under 250V) and fire caused by electrical equipment accidentally. Please be noted that the person who works under high voltage electrical equipment are prohibited wearing ESD Shoes.
ESD Shoes Specification
ESD Shoes must be tested according to ESD Shoes Resistance Value Method. The sole resistance of ESD Shoes must between 0.5X105Ω1.0X108Ω.
ESD Shoes must meet other related shoes manufacturing standard and technology requirements. Take the resistance value change caused by pollution and wearing into consideration and so on.
To ensure static discharging effect, the floor resistance must be kept under 1.0X108.
During wearing, ESD Shoes mustn’t stick with any insulation dirt and please do not wear insulation socks or put insulated insoles in the shoes.
ESD Shoes quality supervision
The authorized inspection agency examine the ESD Shoes manufacturer’s technical condition and process equipment, etc. The ESD manufacturer is qualified to produce the ESD Shoes only after passed all the tests and get all required certificate.
