Decay Time

Showing 8 of 8 articles in total.

The time required for an electrostatic potential to be reduced to a given percentage (usually 10%) of its initial value.


Area within a building that uses LAN based networks in 8' x 8' furniture cubicles, or less.


An insulating material that can sustain an electric field with little current flow.


The maximum electric field that a dielectric can sustain.


The time necessary for a voltage (due to an electrostatic charge) to decay from an initial value to some arbitrarily chosen final value.


Floor material that has a resistance to ground between 1.0 x 106 and 1.0 x 109 ohms.

A floor tile material used for the mitigation of electrostatic discharge (ESD). Usually composed of carpet, synthetic rubber or vinyl composition.It is important to differentiate between the terms SDT and static dissipative. By definition, a static dissipative floor tile inherently meets the electrical properties of "static dissipative flooring" without the use of antistatic waxes, finishes and glazes. A static dissipative tile is not necessarily antistatic and should be carefully evaluated in applications where special controlled footwear will not be used. Static dissipative vinyl is a static generator in combination with people and standard footwear. Static dissipative rubber inhibits the generation of static in combination with people wearing standard footwear.

(Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate [bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate): As defined by mindfully.org: "DOP or DEHP is the compound plasticizer Di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate...[and] is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen based on sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals (NTP 217,1982;IARC V.29,1982;IARC S.7,1987).When administered in the diet, di(2- ethylhexyl)phthalate increased the incidence of hepatocellular carcinomas in female rats, liver neoplastic nodules or hepatocellular carcinomas in male rats, and hepatocllular carcinomas in mice of both sexes."
