Question.. What is Anti Static
Answer.. Minimal generation or retention of a 'static' charge.
Question.. What does 'conductive' mean
Answer.. Low resistance. IE less than 1 meg-ohm (106) and 1000 meg-ohm (109)
Question.. What is 'static dissipative'
Answer.. Increased resistance, which protects better against an ESD (between 1 meg-ohm and 1000 meg-ohm)
Question .. What is 'Insulative'
Answer.. Does not allow the free flow of electrons, therefore it will more than likely cause problems eg prevent a path to earth, hold a 'static' field etc.
