How is the level of conductivity in non-fuel, low conductivity/low flashpoint fluids regulated in the USA? Is there a minum level of conductivity set by code? If not, then how do users choose the conductivity of the static control option

Question asked by scott.lamb on Dec 21, 2016

We recommend users of non-conductive/low flashpoint fluids use antistatic agents to control unwanted static discharge while using these materials (typically in manufacturing coatings and adhesives). Fuels which is non-conductive/low flash point, is regulated so that antistatic agent must be added to increase conductivity:However, is there any such regulation for non-fuels (e.g. toluene, xylene)? If there is not, then how do users of these fluids know to what extent they should use antistatic agents to prevent unwanted static discharge?
