Why do I need ESD Safe Gloves?

Every computer assembly and repair facility should provide their workers with ESD-safe gloves, such as the QRP Advanced Glove Technology from Kimco. To the inexperienced person, electrostatic shock appears to be nothing more than a benign prick. People who have worked in the micro-electronic manufacturing and repair industries, however, know the hazards of electrostatic discharges. ESD-safe gloves provide a convenient way of protecting both people and parts from electric shock.

Protecting People

QRP BQF09 ESD-safe gloves are not meant to be the only layer of protection against shock. Rather, they are designed to be used in conjunction with other percautionary measures, such a wrist strap and mat, in an electrostatic protective area (EPA). When worn within an EPA enviornment, Kimco's ESD-safe gloves that meet governement standards greatly reduce the risk of shock.

Protecting Parts

EPA gloves also protect electronic parts, including motherboards, memory sticks, PCUs and other parts. The ESD-safe gloves Kimco Distributing carries prevent oils on people's fingers from coming into contact with the valuable electronic parts. Even an unnoticable ammount of oil from a person's skin can damage an electronic component, and the gloves from Kimco guard against this.

Providing Convenience

There are other means of guarding against electric shock and protecting micro-electronics. However, few are as convenient as Kimco Distributing Corp.'s ESD-safe gloves. Everyone working on laptop repair should be wearing a wrist strap, but people inevitably forget occassionally. A pair of gloves protects people, even when they neglect to put on a wrist strap. Gloves also provide a solution for the situations when it is impractical to wear a wrist strap and remain stationary on a mat. Whether loading trucks with electronics or repairing a laptop at a customer's home, workers can always wear Kimco's ESD-safe gloves.
