| having a resistivity or resistance below the dissipative range allowing stray current arcs and electrostatic shocks to occur|
Note 1 to entry: Conductive materials or objects are neither dissipative nor insulating and are incapable of retaining a significant electrostatic charge when in contact with the earth.
Note 2 to entry: Boundary limits for the conductive range for solid materials, enclosures, some objects and bulk materials are given in IEC TS 60079-32-1, Explosive atmospheres – Part 32-1: Electrostatic hazards, guidance.
Note 3 to entry: Product standards and other standards covering electrostatic properties often include specific definitions of "conductive", which apply only to items covered by those standards and can be different to the definitions given here. See e.g. ISO 8031, Rubber and plastics hoses and hose assemblies – Determination of electrical resistance and conductivity, and ISO 8330, Rubber and plastics hoses and hose assemblies – Vocabulary, for hose and hose assemblies.
