What is the difference between conductive and antistatic shoes?

Table of Contents

Key Differences

  1. Electrical Resistance:
    • Conductive Shoes: Have very low electrical resistance (typically less than 100 kΩ), ensuring rapid dissipation of static electricity.
    • Antistatic Shoes: Have moderate electrical resistance (between 100 kΩ and 1000 MΩ), providing controlled dissipation of static electricity.
  2. Applications:
    • Conductive Shoes: Ideal for environments with highly sensitive electronic components or explosive materials.
    • Antistatic Shoes: Suitable for general industry use where static dissipation is needed but not at the same critical level as conductive environments.
  3. Protection:
    • Conductive Shoes: Provide protection against static discharge that could damage electronic components or ignite flammable substances.
    • Antistatic Shoes: Reduce the risk of static shocks to the wearer but do not offer protection against electrical hazards or in highly sensitive environments.
