Working Surface Matting and Grounding

ESD protective work surface mats, sometimes referred to as Anti-Static mats, aid in the prevention of damage to ESD sensitive items (ESDS) and assemblies from electrostatic discharge. 

Work surface mats are typically an integral part of the ESD workstation, particularly in areas where hand assembly occurs. An ESD protective worksurface provides protection in two ways:
  1. Providing a low charging (antistatic) worksurface area that will limit static electricity to be generated below potentially damaging levels.
  2. Removing the electrostatic charge from conductive objects placed on the worksurface. 
An ESD protective worksurface is usually dissipative on the surface with a conductive layer either underneath (2-layer matting), or burried between two dissipative layers (3-layer matting). Although conductive materials are the quickest to ground a charge, they can also cause damage by discharging too rapidly. 

What does the standard say? 
Per IEC 61340-5-1:2016, Table 3 EPA requirements, "Worksurfaces are defined as any surface on which an unprotected ESD sensitive item is placed."
