Techspray's ESD-safe products can help maintain work areas within the ANSI/ESDS20.20 standards set by the ESD Association. Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) occurs when the charges of two surfaces with a large electronic potential (difference) equalize instantaneously. The resulting discharge or spark can cause catastrophic or latent damage to electronic components. 

Electrostatic discharge happens all the time, especially in dry climates and in the winter season, when there isn’t moisture in the air to help bleed the excess electrons (water is conductive, so allows the electrons to flow more easily). Normally it is nothing more than an irritation, but with sensitive electronics, it can lead to PCB failures.

Without the appropriate equipment and supplies, a worker can generate thousands of volts. SMOS logic devices can be damaged with 250-3000 volts, EPROM devices down to 100 volts, and microprocessor chips as low as 10 volts. Damage can shut down functions or create intermittent problems, and it can either be catastrophic (immediate) or latent (later as in “field failure”). (source: Phil Storrs PC Hardware Book)

ESD programs maintain an equal potential by maintaining continuous contact with ground, avoiding ESD damage. Techspray's cleaners, lotions, and coatings are an integral part of an ESD control program.

ESD Attributes

Licron Crystal ESD Safe Coating Licron Crystal ESD-Safe Coating
Permanent, clear ESD safe coating- Versatile, crystal clear urethane coating that adheres to metal, plastic, and most other surfaces. The end result is compliant with ANSI/ESD­S20.20, which prevents static damage to sensitive electronic components.
Zero Charge Mat & Table Top Cleaner Zero Charge Mat & Table Top Cleaner
Safe, effective cleaner for ESD mats - Clean flux and other residues off of ESD-Safe mats and tabletops. Will not dry out surfaces (i.e. IPA) or leave insulative waxes (i.e. household cleaners).
Zero Charge Screen & Keyboard Cleaner Zero Charge Screen & Keyboard Cleaner
Cleans surfaces and leaves behind dissipative residue-Removes hand oils, ink marks, dust, and other contaminants from computer equipment. With regular use, cleaner will eliminate static charge from sensitive surfaces and provide long-term static protection.
Zero Charge Anti-Stat Coating Zero Charge Anti-Stat Coating
Anti-static coating for fabrics & flexible surfaces - Fast drying, anti-static coating eliminates static charge and reduces triboelectric generation from flexible surfaces. Ideal for plastics, fabrics, and carpet.
Zero Charge Floor Coating Zero Charge Floor Coating
ESD-safe floor coating- This product is a high gloss floor finish designed for use in electronic production areas, computer rooms and other static sensitive areas. Contains a non-migratory, static dissipative polymer, which will maintain a constant surface resistivity of 106-108 ohms throughout the humidity spectrum.
Zero Charge ESD Lotion Zero Charge Hand Lotion
Non-contaminating ESD hand lotion for ESD sensitive environments
Anti-Static Freezer Anti-Static Freezer
HFC-134a diagnostic freeze spray for static sensitive assemblies
Techclean Anti-Static Wipe Techclean Anti-Static Wipe
Class 10 anti-static knit polyester wipe - Polyester wipe that is interwoven with DuPont's NEGA­STAT carbon yarn. NEGA­STAT dissipates static charge, preventing static build­up and allowing dissipation
Plato Shear Ergonomic Cutter Platoshear Ergonomic Cutter
Ergonomic, ESD-safe shear lead cutter
Needle Flux Dispenser Needle Flux Dispenser
Needle bottles are ideal for precisely controlled flux applications. Two different needle sizes are available: 0.25mm for low viscosity no-clean and aqueous fluxes, and 0.50mm for higher viscosity rosin-based fluxes. Each bottle is available in standard plastic or with optional ESD-safe cover.
No-Clean Desoldering Braid No-Clean Desoldering Braid
Desoldering braid without any corrosive ionic flux residues, so cleaning is optional
Pro-Wick Desoldering Braid 	Pro Wick Desoldering Braid
Pro-Wick desoldering wick enables the fastest solder wicking action
Unfluxed Desoldering Braid Unfluxed Desoldering Braid
Unfluxed desoldering braid allows you to use your own flux -- ideal for aqueous process
