ESD Matting

Bondline’s premium, textured bench matting is ideal for laying on workbenches in the workshops or laboratories of microelectronic industries. It provides excellent ESD protection for operators working with static-sensitive components in an EPA. The textured finish of the matting adds extra operator comfort.

The bench matting is 2mm thick and is manufactured from a 2-layer synthetic rubber. The matting’s top layer is static-dissipative and its bottom layer consists of a conductive backing. Overall, the mat gives a typical resistance to ground = 106-108 ohms. The textured surface allows for easy cleaning and maintenance. It is excellent for use in any Electrostatic Protected Area.

Bench Mat Benefits

ESD work surface mats, also known as table top mats, are typically thinner than floor mats. They are usually available in either smoothly or lightly embossed finishes. Bench mats’ surfaces are generally embossed to help to reduce the surface’s reflective properties, reducing glare and improving operator comfort – aiding workers with complicated electronic assembly tasks. With that in mind, bench mats tend to come in bright, light colours to help workers find smaller components on their surface, and are designed to be used with other ESD controls such as wrist straps and grounding points.

Bondline’s premium, textured bench matting, in particular, comes equipped with many advantages. Generally, rubber mats have high heat resistant properties which ensures they are resistant to hot solder, etc. If your job requires you to use heat and/or chemicals, then you should opt for rubber matting. Vinyl matting, on the other hand, does not have any heat resistant properties which means it can easily melt if you were to carry out a task that used high temperatures. Typically, rubber mats are much more stable since their ESD properties cannot change, whereas other materials aren’t quite as much.

Additionally, rubber mats remain in their same form – even when they are exposed to cold or humid conditions. Vinyl matting cannot and therefore can change and become harder if conditions were to change.

Being more sustainable and environmentally-friendly is significant in every industry. Many people choose to shop with companies who are helping the environment in some way. Due to this, opting for more sustainable options can be the way forward for many businesses. Rubber matting is a great choice for sustainability. Compared to other matting materials, rubber matting is much better for the environment.

As you can see, there are many advantages and benefits of ESD rubber matting. Although this matting comes with a premium price, remember that you are buying into these benefits, a quality, leading supplier and excellent, quick lead times.

Common Environments Where ESD Rubber Mats Are Used

ESD mats are commonly found in environments where electrostatic sensitive products are present, or where static electricity can potentially cause harm. These often include:

The use of ESD mats is common in companies where employees regularly come into contact with ESD-sensitive products; however, these mats are also necessary in situations where employees may only occasionally enter ESD-sensitive environments, such as back office staff who sometimes need to enter a clean room or manufacturing space.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Since dirt can behave as an insulator, it is important to regularly clean ESD mats before testing and monitoring the resistivity. Cleaning will also ensure optimum electrical performance and, by regularly cleaning, you will maintain the original resistivity of the anti-static mat whilst extending its shelf-life.

How To Maintain An ESD Mat

To clean ESD mats, we recommend using a mild, multi-purpose neutral cleaner that doesn’t contain any alkali, ammonia or chemicals on RoHS and REACH SvHC. You should also opt for a cleaner that leaves no streaks or film. Generally, any ESD-safe mat cleaner should be safe to use on workstations, table tops and anti-static mats, including rubber and vinyl.

An example of a good ESD-safe mat cleaner is Bondline’s Staticide Mat and Table Top Cleaner. This mat cleaner is a non-flammable cleaner that leaves no film or streaks. It effectively removes flux residues, oily finger-marks, grease, nicotine, dirt, grime and inorganic contaminants. It also removes dirt on chair mats and other antistatic mats without degrading the surface’s antistatic properties.

Staticide Mat and Table Top Cleaner Directions for Use:

1) Apply liberally to the areas to be cleaned.

2) Wait 2-3 minutes to allow emulsifiers to penetrate.

3) Then wipe it off.
