1 SDT Static Dissipative Tile Armstrong SDT is part of a complete Flooring system designed to control Static in most nonexplosive manufacturing and working areas. SDT dissipates Static charges away from people and equipment in order to increase personal comfort and safety and help prevent sensitive equipment damage. In addition to Static control, SDT offers the practical benefits of VCT, including durability, ease of maintenance and low installed cost. Post-installation electrical properties can be evaluated by a qualified third party. Contact your Armstrong representative for details.
