Stop Killer Defects with These Cleanroom Work Gloves

If someone told you that something as simple and innocent as your fingerprint or static shock could have a killer effect or, create a killer defect, you would probably just laugh it off and walk away. Seriously, these two factors could bring Apple or IBM to their knees!

If you ever been "zapped" when you touched a doorknob or car-door handle, then you already know something about the effects of static electricity. Static electricity occurs when two different materials or surfaces contact each other and rub together, it can create an unexpected nuisance referred to electrical static discharge, known also as ESD.

The simple fact is the oils from your skin and static electricity are corrosive to delicate fibers, pulps, metals and electronics.  The shock caused by static electricity can bring more power at your fingertips than you ever imagined but unfortunately you won't be hailed as a super hero if you accidently zap a valuable circuit board or an expensive electronic device.

Delicate and tiny electronic parts require the highest level of tactility when handling but assembling circuit boards with bare hands is certainly not an option. Cleanroom operators are the largest threat and the highest source for contaminants found in cleanroom inspections. They introduce particles through skin flakes, skin oil, hair, yeast and while bringing in external particles from cosmetics, perfume, deodorants, lotions, shoes and clothing (lint, fibers). Tacky floor mats placed at door entrances help control contamination while Cleanroom Gloves are worn with the intention to prevent skin oils and skin particlePIP® CleanTeam® Nylon Gloves w/ PU Coated Palmss from contaminating the work surfaces and many can also have anti-static qualities.
