ESD gloves are an essential part of safety protocol in laboratories, factories, warehouses, and other manufacturing facilities. They have become a standard part of maintaining safety protocol in cleanrooms and ESD protection areas. High-quality ESD gloves should provide a resistive path from the body to the product, tools, or equipment being handled, such as sensitive electronic equipment and materials with the ability to hold and transfer a charge.
Cleanrooms and manufacturing work requires a number of different safety procedures in order to protect both the workers and the products being handled from potential dangers like electrostatic discharge. One of the cornerstone elements of cleanroom and manufacturing safety is the use of electrostatic discharge (ESD) gloves.
