You will find all ESD-products needed for comprehensive ESD-protection at our online shop, structured by application areas.

Protect your production against electrostatics effectively

Sparks won’t skip - if you get in contact with us first!

ESD-Protect GmbH offers systems to avoid rapid electrostatic discharge or static charges in electronics processing productions. As a solution provider for comprehensive ESD-solutions, ESD-Protect GmbH offers high-quality ESD-products, individual advice, customer-oriented proprietary developments and innovative business solutions.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) constitutes a high risk in production. Even low charges can destroy or damage components in such a way, that they will later fail in the field application.

Being a solution provider is not just a slogan, it is a promise made by ESD-Protect – a promise of holistic support and advice. From the planning to individual implementation we are guiding you through this process.

You have questions on how to initially set up your EPA? We support you with the planning and will be pleased to advise you. Do you want to expand your EPA-zone but are not sure how to proceed exactly? We are at your side with individual solutions!

ESD-protection is more important than ever

Protection against electrostatic discharge in manufacturing industries becomes increasingly important and individual. Do you feel as if left alone by standard products, which do not fit into your concept or do not possess essential required features? We understand this kind of difficulties and we are aware of your individual needs. That is why we develop appropriate ESD-products and effective ESD-concepts in accordance with the ESD-standard IEC 61340-5-1. In close co-operation we create our own products and supplements that are not available anywhere in this specific design.

Our customers come from various different areas and sectors (from an individual workplace to the automotive industry towards aerospace) the customized solutions apply to a wide variety of departments – we will also find proper solutions to meet your requirements. Customized, individual and suitable, special and effective – the ESD-Protect promise. 

Being standard is no solution to us ...

... we focus on innovations!

 

That is why our portfolio goes far beyond ESD products and extends to special services and innovative special solutions to protect your production and your products from ESD damage.

Individual demands call for innovative products and services.

ESD floor finish| ESD-compliant floor coatings

A conductive floor is the basis for a standard compliant ESD-protected zone (EPA).

The Dr. Schutz floor coating system offers to permanently protect these floors or make damaged floors conductive again.

What is ESD?

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the charge balancing between two different electrostatically charged objects. This equalization takes place within a very short time. There may even be a visible sparking. In everyday life, such discharges often occur when taking off clothing, which mainly consists of plastic fibers. Or touching a metallic door handle after walking over a carpet with footwear having a synthetic sole.
 

ESD - an invisible threat

You cannot see, hear or feel ESD, only the damage is noticeable, but then it is already too late. As a result, the damaged electronic components due to ESD often fail later at the customers. This may lead to considerable risks and costs for the manufacturer and also for the end users of an electronic product.
 

People are main responsible

ESD-damage is primarily caused by human beings because they can absorb and hold high electrostatic charges (e.g. when walking over carpeted floors).

People only feel an electrostatic discharge (ESD) from approx. 3.500 volts and higher. However, about 30 volts are sufficient enough to destroy or damage sensitive semiconductor devices.

Since people feel their static charges too late usually, they are not aware of the danger they may expose to ESD-sensitive components.

The relative humidity also plays an important role. At low humidity people and insulating objects charge more than it is the case at a higher humidity.
 

Advantages of comprehensive ESD protection:

  • Increase in product quality
  • Avoid loss of image and trust
  • Compliance with industry-standard quality assurance standards
  • Compliance with worldwide standards and ESD-norms
  • Reduction of error rate and error costs
  • Reduction of default risks
  • Minimize product liability risks
