These shoes have the ability to dissipate on the ground the electrostatic tension accumulated in the body, thus avoiding electric shocks and sparks. In working environments where there is risk of explosions, the need to have such dissipation becomes vital, therefore conductive shoes are used instead of those simply anti static.

anti static shoes

How do you define the antistaticity of shoes?

The presence and the level of antistaticity are defined through the electrical resistance, expressed in Ohms, of the entire construction of the bottom, including all the layers it is made of. Since the dissipation of the electrostatic tension must take place between the foot and the ground, through all the layers,

Composition of Anti static shoe sole – polyurethane outer side, rubber insert

Feature: Discharges static electricity along path of least resistance

A shoe sole comprising: a polyurethane outer sole having an electrical resistance of approximately 40 Mega Ohms in a standard wet/dry test and an electrical resistance of approximately 20 Mega Ohms in a standard wet/wet test conducted according to British Standard 2050, and a rubber sole insert having an electrical resistance of  approximately 1 Mega Ohm positioned adjacent the outer sole such that static electricity in the sole insert is capable of discharging from the sole insert along a path of least resistance through the outer sole.
