Wrist straps are usually the preferred solution for personal grounding for ESD-sensitive applications and environments. When worn correctly, they provide a low-cost choice for static control.
A common cause of wrist strap failures is dry skin. According to ACL Staticide, “moisture on skin is vital to wrist strap performance for personal grounding.” Properly moisturized skin creates a better bond with the wrist strap and better overall personal grounding performance.
ACL’s Staticide® Hi-Tech static-dissipative Hand Lotions offer an excellent response to the challenges of dry skin. These greaseless, non-acidic lotions are created with natural moisturizers including aloe vera and vitamin E and do not contain glycerin, silicone, lanolin, or mineral oil. Regular use of these lotions will prevent skin dryness, irritation, and flaking and ensure good contact between wrist strap and skin.
These Hi-Tech Lotions quickly absorb into the skin and will not contaminate the work surface. They are available in a number of different volumes and in clean fresh scent or fragrance free versions.
