What is Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)?

Electrostatic discharge is the sudden flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects caused by contact or an electrical short or dielectric breakdown.

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!

Static electricity can also pose a fire-risk in industries that handle flammable liquids such as automotive, painting, chemical, lab, pyrotechnic and petroleum/gas.

Single-Use ESD Gloves | Tested and Approved

ESD gloves provide hand protection that helps prevent damage from electrostatic discharge and are generally safe to work with flammable liquids, chemicals or static sensitive devices.

Sempermed®, a leading manufacturer in single-use gloves, offers several brands of disposable nitrile gloves that are ESD tested and approved.

These thin and disposable ESD gloves provide tactile hand protection that helps prevent product damage from electrostatic discharge, and they are safe to work with static sensitive devices where bare hands are not desired.
