An Electro Static Flooring System is an important component in the overall protection of sensitive electrical equipment from the static electricity generated from regular foot traffic across a floors surface. If static electricity is a threat to your equipment, MTK Resinous Flooring can help you plan and install an ESD Flooring System designed to provide added protection for your assets.
Electro Static Flooring or ESD Flooring Systems are designed to redirect static electricity to a ground helping to control the electrostatic charge often caused by movement across the floor. Electrostatic charges can negatively impact sensitive electronic equipment. Even the slightest charge can interrupt electrical components like circuit boards and microchips. Commercial Buildings which house this type of equipment are a great fit for Electro-Static Flooring.
How Electro Static Flooring Systems Work
An ESD Floor Coating consists of a mix of a polymer coating and conductive particles allowing electricity to freely flow through the floor. Because of this, electrical charges are strategically directed to a ground source and safely away from sensitive equipment. Regular polymer coatings lack this ability to conduct electricity and are prone to producing static electricity as people move across it.
- Conductive Particles added to the polymer mix allow for free flowing electricity
- Static electricity is redirected to a designated ground source
- Provides strategic protection for sensitive electrical components
We offer a few different types of ESD Flooring Systems. Electro-Flor ESD is a fluid applied, water based, monolithic, and is electrically active within resistance range requirements for a “static dissipative” flooring system. Electro-Flor CD is a fluid-applied, water-based, monolithic, high solids epoxy flooring, and is electrically active within resistance range requirements for a “conductive” flooring system.
Electro Flor ESD and CD are fluid-applied, water based, monolithic, flooring systems. CD is conductive for a spark-free work environment, and SD is electro-static discharge for ESD sensitive environments. Advantages Include: More Sanitary Environments, Excellent Abrasion Resistance, Chemical Resistance, Monolithic and Seamless, Increased Durability
Extremely consistent, uniform, and predictable conductive (ECD) or static-dissipating (ESD) performance High tolerance to shearing/abrasion with monolithic, seamless coverage Easy, contractor-friendly application Water-based epoxy formulation with virtually no odor or VOC off-gassing Fast-drying characteristics for up to three coatings per day (quick return to service) Easily built-out for various film thickness up to 12 mils per coat More durable than tile/sheet goods in forklift traffic Available in an attractive range of colors
