Electrostatic dissipation (ESD) is the process of reducing or eliminating static electricity on a surface or material. ESD can be a problem in many industries, particularly in electronics manufacturing and assembly, where static electricity can damage sensitive electronic components. It can also be a safety hazard in environments where flammable or explosive materials are present.
One way to prevent or control ESD is to use antistatic materials such as conductive or static-dissipative plastics that can help to prevent the buildup of static charges on surfaces.
