Anti-static shoes are working shoes worn by workshop and advanced laboratory in microelectronics industry, such as electronic semiconductor devices, computers, electronic communication equipment and integrated circuits, in order to reduce or eliminate static hazards. Anti-static shoes can guide static electricity from the human body to the earth, thereby eliminating static electricity in the human body, while effectively suppressing the dust generated by the movement of people in the dust-free room. It is suitable for pharmaceutical factories, food factories, electronic factories, clean workshops, laboratories, etc. Anti-static shoes are made of dispersive PU or PVC materials. Anti-static and anti-skid materials are used for soles, which can not only absorb sweat and deodorize, but also achieve anti-skid and anti-static functions. They are integrated with the upper and then reinforced on-line. It can effectively release static electricity, form a complete anti-static system with anti-static clothing.

2. Introduce the relevant standards of antistatic safety shoes.
European Standard EN 344:1997 “Safety, protective and occupational footwear for professional use”. The European Standard was formulated by the Technical Committee of CEN/TC61 “Foot and Leg Protection Products”, with BSI as its secretariat. This standard stipulates the structure and performance indices of safety protective shoes, such as style design, whole shoes, upper, lining, tongue, inner sole and outer sole. The test methods specified in the standard are similar to other similar standards. The principle of the method is generally applicable to most safety and anti-static protective shoes. The main indicators are as follows:
Impact resistance of Toe-cap
In the impact test with steel impact hammer of specified weight, the clearance height under the cap should be less than the specified value when the cap is impacted, and there should be no penetrating cracks in the direction of the test axis. It is noteworthy that the weight, specifications, impact height and the structure of the test machine are different in various national standards, and should be distinguished in actual testing.
Anti piercing performance
The test machine is equipped with a pressure plate, and the pressure plate is equipped with test nails. The test nail is a cutting-off tip. The hardness of the nail head should be greater than 60HRC. The sole sample is placed on the chassis of the testing machine, where the test nail can be pierced through the outer sole. The test nail pierces the sole at a speed of 10 mm/min±3 mm/min until it is pierced.
Record the maximum force required. Four points on each sole were selected for the test (at least one point on the heel). Each point was not less than 30 mm apart, and the distance from the edge of the inner sole was more than 10 mm. The bottom of the anti-skid block should be punctured between blocks. The 2 points in the 4 points should be tested at a distance of 10-15 mm from the edge line of the planting floor. If humidity has an effect on the results, the sole should be immersed in deionized water at 20℃±2℃ for16±1 hours before testing.
Electrical properties
After the shoe sample is adjusted in dry and wet atmosphere, the clean steel ball is filled into the shoe and placed on the metal probe device. The resistance between the first two probes and the third probe is measured by the specified resistance measuring instrument. In general, the resistance of conductive shoes should not be greater than 100K ohm; the resistance of antistatic shoes should be between 100K ohm and 100M ohm.
4. Requirements for anti-skid outsole
The standard provides for testing the anti-skid coefficient of anti-static working soles, but stipulates the design and specifications of anti-slip blocks, such as the thickness of soles, the height of anti-slip blocks and the distance from the edge of soles.
