9 key analysis of ESD safety shoes from the manufacturer’s perspective

As an ESD safety shoes manufacturer, our primary mission is to continuously and stably provide qualified ESD safety shoe to our customers.

We provide ESD shoes, ESD boots, soft toe ESD shoes, ESD steel toe shoes, ESD composite toe shoes ESD safety boots, ESD safety boots and ESD sneakers etc

In this article, I will explain from the perspective of a safety shoe manufacturer how we can continuously and stably produce high-quality ESD work shoes.

1: What are ESD shoes?

ESD shoes meaning electrostatic dissipative shoes, are also called electrostatic discharge shoes.

What is static electricity? Static electricity is an objective natural phenomenon. It is a charge in a static state or a charge that does not flow (the flowing charge forms an electric current). There are many ways to generate static electricity, such as contact, friction, induction between electrical appliances, etc. Static electricity has the characteristics of high potential, low electricity, small current, and short action time.

Because some specific working environments are prone to generate static electricity and cause electrostatic charge accumulation. If the charge cannot dissipate in time, it can easily cause damage to people and items in the workplace.

The purpose of these shoes is to quickly release the electrostatic charge accumulated on the body to the ground through ESD safety shoes. prevent damage to electronic equipment and minimize the risk of fires or explosions caused by static electricity.

2: What is ESD safety shoe?

ESD means “electrostatic dissipative “. Internationally, it is customary to collectively refer to equipment used for electrostatic protection as ESD, with lower resistance values ​​between 0.1 and 100 megaohms (MΩ).

ESD safety shoes conduct electrostatic charges to the ground in a very safe and controllable way, preventing electrostatic charges from accumulating in the human body.

Guaranteed to protect against transient currents caused by contact with charged objects. ESD safety shoes are used in different industries to prevent electrostatic discharge in sensitive equipment or devices, such as industrial equipment manufacturing, semiconductor manufacturing, electrical engineering, communication equipment manufacturing, medical industry, and other precision and sensitive environments.

3: How do ESD shoes work?

when individuals are working around static-sensitive processes, materials, or items. Controlling unwanted static charges is especially important.

The function of ESD safety shoes is to transfer unnecessary static charges through the body to the feet and then quickly dissipate them to the floor through the ESD safety shoes.

The human body is like a walking independent conductor of electricity. When you walk, your body generates a static charge. (Just like friction builds up static electricity.)

So, when you work in a technical environment, such as when you work in an electronics factory, which may cause machines and equipment to build up static electricity, you don’t want to discharge the static electricity generated by your own body, Because it can damage the chips and render them useless.

ESD shoes are commonly worn in computer component handling facilities, processing plants, and manufacturing facilities.

According to the standard requirements of ISO/IEC61340-4-3, when the resistance value of the ESD shoes is ≤100MΩ. Can meet the requirements of static electricity dissipation.

The convenient method of providing a ground connection for personnel is to wear ESD shoes while standing or walking on a regulated and properly designated static control floor surface.

4: How do you tell if shoes are ESD?

H-tech ESD Shoes usually have a unique label

To determine if your shoes have been subjected to ESD, here are some ways to tell if your shoes are anti-static:

  1. ESD Shoes usually have a unique label. The label consists of a black triangle or electrostatic discharge symbol (bold arrow) within a black circle and a yellow background color, and some of them are accompanied by text such as “ESD” Dissipation.”
  2. ESD shoes Manufacturer will state on the shoe box, hang tag, or product manual that the shoes meet ESD standards or comply with specific electrostatic discharge regulations.

5: Can electrician wear ESD shoes?

Depending on the environment in which electricians work, determine whether you need to wear ESD shoe.

According to national and enterprise labor protection regulations, it is recommended that electricians choose to wear appropriate safety shoes based on different hazards in the working environment.

When the working environment of an electrician requires reducing the potential threat of static electricity to electricians and equipment, ESD safety shoes can effectively release static electricity from the electrician’s body.

When electricians are dealing with high-intensity currents, they need to pay attention to choosing electrically insulating safety shoes to provide protective measures, because the low resistance of ESD safety shoes may increase the risk of electric shock.

Therefore, the best protection method needs to be selected based on the specific situation.

6: Are ESD and SD shoes?

SD shoes are referred to as ESD shoes. ESD stands for Electro Static Dissipative. SD stands for Static Dissipating.

7: Are ESD and EH shoes the same?

Electrostatic dissipative (ESD) safety shoes and Electrical hazard (EH) safety shoes are safety footwear with completely different functions.

Electrostatic Dissipative (ESD) safety shoes are designed to prevent the build-up of electrical charges and the generation of static electricity, thereby protecting electrical equipment from potential damage caused by equipment failure caused by static electricity.

Electrically insulating (EH) safety shoes are footwear designed to protect individuals from the risk of electric shock or electrocution.

The function of EH safety shoes is to significantly reduce the current flowing through the body, thus minimizing the possibility of electric shock.

EH safety shoes will help prevent electrical current from electrical wires or leaky equipment from causing electric shock to workers on the job site and slow down the speed at which electrical current reaches and flows through your body.

8:What is the difference between ESD and antistatic safety shoes?

The two standard terms ESD and antistatic often confuse, and not just when it comes to safety footwear. Although both terms refer to contact resistance, there is a fundamental difference between the two.

The biggest reason is that they are all conductive safety shoes. So what are the differences between these two?

Anti-static safety shoes have a low resistance value, ranging from 0.1 to 1000 megaohms (MΩ).

ESD safety shoes, with lower resistance values ​​between 0.1 and 100 megaohms (MΩ).

Anti-static safety shoes can conduct static charges to the ground and inhibit their accumulation in the human body, thus preventing instantaneous current caused by contact with charged objects.

ESD safety shoes conduct electrostatic charges to the ground in a very safe and controlled manner

Anti-static safety shoes are suitable for use in clean workshops of pharmaceutical factories, food factories, electronic factories, laboratories, etc.

ESD safety shoes and anti-static safety shoes are used in different industries to prevent electrostatic discharge in sensitive equipment or devices, such as industrial equipment manufacturing, semiconductor manufacturing, electrical engineering, communication equipment manufacturing, medical industry and other precision and sensitive environments.
