Dissipative Floors (DIF) have a resistance between `10^6` and `10^9`. Charges on the floor are discharged to earth via this resistance.
Conductive floors comply with VDE standard 0100 and do not pose any danger to persons. In contrast to electrostatically conductive floors( ECF), the discharge current of conductive floors is lower and the time span for discharge is longer. This has particular advantages for the protection of highly sensitive components.
