The Ultimate Protection with Electrostatic Flooring

Advanced dissipative and conductive flooring coating systems designed to provide electrostatic protection in environments where electrostatic discharge poses a significant hazard.


Advanced dissipative and conductive flooring coating systems are designed to provide electrostatic protection in environments where electrostatic discharge poses a significant hazard. These systems are ideal for electronics manufacturing, chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, data centers, operating rooms, and more. The Electrostatic Protection System begins with an Epoxy Primer, followed by an Electrostatic Dissipative or Conductive Grounding Plane, and is finished with a durable Top Coat.

Ideal Applications

An Electrostatic Protection Flooring System is perfect for a variety of high-risk environments. In chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, it offers robust protection against chemical spills and wear. These industries often deal with hazardous materials and require flooring solutions that can withstand frequent exposure to chemicals without degrading. The system's chemical resistance ensures that floors remain intact and safe, minimizing the risk of contamination and enhancing the overall safety of the facility.

Warehouses and distribution centers benefit from its extreme durability and abrasion resistance, ensuring long-lasting performance under heavy traffic. These facilities experience constant movement of goods, heavy machinery, and foot traffic, which can wear down traditional flooring systems quickly. The Electrostatic Protection Flooring System is designed to endure such conditions, maintaining its integrity and performance over time. Its abrasion resistance also helps reduce maintenance costs and downtime, as the flooring requires less frequent repairs or replacements.

Data centers and chip manufacturing plants rely on its electrostatic discharge resistance to protect sensitive electronic components from damage. In these settings, even a minor electrostatic discharge can cause significant harm to delicate electronics, leading to costly repairs and data loss. The flooring system dissipates static electricity effectively, creating a safer environment for electronic equipment.

This system is also essential in operating rooms, where electrostatic discharge can interfere with medical equipment, potentially compromising patient care. By providing a stable and safe flooring solution, the Electrostatic Protection Flooring System helps maintain the reliability and functionality of critical equipment in these high-stakes environments.

Benefits of an Electrostatic Protection Flooring System

An Electrostatic Protection Flooring System provides several key advantages. Its electrostatic discharge resistance ensures a safe environment for electronic and sensitive equipment. The system's chemical resistance makes it ideal for settings where exposure to harsh substances is common.

It offers extreme durability and abrasion resistance, making it suitable for high-traffic areas. Additionally, the excellent adhesion properties and user-friendly application process make it a practical choice for various industrial and commercial settings.

System Components

Prime Coat

The 912 LV Epoxy Primer is a two-component, highly penetrating epoxy primer and sealer that provides an excellent mechanical bond. Its low viscosity allows for deep penetration into concrete surfaces, while its low odor makes it suitable for occupied spaces.

This primer effectively seals concrete surfaces, minimizing outgassing that can cause defects in the final coating. It bonds well to both dry and damp concrete, masonry, and metal, and can be applied using a roller, squeegee, or brush, offering flexibility in application methods.

Base Coat

The 412 CS Grounding Plane is a two-component, thick water-based epoxy that serves as part of a three-step system to help control electrostatic discharge. Prepackaged and easy to use, it offers excellent adhesion and durability for high-traffic areas.

It provides both static dissipative and conductive properties, making it compliant with EOS/ESD Association 7.1 Standard and NFPA 99. This base coat is water-based and chemical resistant, making it a robust solution for various industrial applications.

Top Coat

The 412 TC ESD Epoxy is a two-component epoxy top coat that completes the three-step system to control electrostatic discharge while providing excellent chemical resistance. It can be applied in a second coat for additional film build if required.

This top coat is prepackaged for easy use, offers excellent adhesion, and is durable enough for high-traffic areas. It meets the static dissipative and conductive range standards set by the EOS/ESD Association and NFPA.
