Static Solutions ESD Hand Lotions Help Fight Potential Static Damage - Guest Blog

Static Solutions’ Q Source Resource Guest Blog offers a solution to the electrostatic discharge that is common (and potentially dangerous) this time of year.


As the seasons change from warm to cold, so too can the risk of static.

Typically, as temperatures drop, dryer conditions increase because of reduced humidity. You may notice static shocks as you get out of your car and touch the metal of the vehicle or when you walk inside across a carpet and get a shock as you touch a doorknob.

Each situation may be a slight annoyance, but if you need to be mindful of ESD (electrostatic discharge), the increased risk of a static can be costly, or at an extreme, deadly in potentially explosive environments.

ESD Hand Lotion

Following basic EOS/ESD standards of the 20.20 is a requirement for many companies, and taking steps like using proper personal grounding such as wrist straps, heel grounders, or hand lotion can be an important part of your plan. Yes, even hand lotion can help at this time of year!

Applying moisture to your skin adds another layer of protection by increasing conductivity to your wrist strap. It has the added benefit of helping your skin to not dry out, crack, or flake.
