Static-Resistant Resilient Flooring
A durable, stain resistant floor-covering with ergonomic features and antistatic (anti-static) properties. Any resilient flooring material such as rubber, polypropylene or vinyl that will not generate excessive quantities of static electricity. Describing a flooring material as static resistant (or anti static), does not mean that the material can also ground or discharge or dissipate static electricity. A static resistant material could inhibit static generation on people but lack the conductive properties necessary for grounding of static charges. The ideal static control material should be both conductive and antistatic. A term found in Division 9 - Finishes 09650.6 Static-resistant resilient flooring.
