10^9+ ohms [1,000 megohms or more] is pretty much "non-conductive" for anything we ordinary hams have to measure it. My Heath MM-1 just doesn't register at that. :-)

Whether or not your mat is any good for ESD protection, and whether or not you can believe the specs if it has them, depends a lot on where it comes from.

At this point; A Question about how to properly test an anti-static mat?

I bought one last winter that appears to be totally non-conductive. I
don't think it is my error.
If others have mats like this, and are trusting them, I can see the
possibility for failures.
