Making the correct choice of floor system, when establishing an electro-static protected area (EPA), is essential to ensure that sensitive electronic components and assemblies are adequately protected from the harmful effects of electro-static discharge (ESD).
Flowcrete UK’s anti-static Flooring range has been designed to safely ground or dissipate the build-up of electro-static charge in sensitive environments.
Electro-static Discharge (ESD) refers to the rapid, spontaneous transfer of electro-static charge induced by a high electro-static field. Charge can build-up while simply walking across the floor of a processing environment. Without flooring materials equipped with adequate protection, this charge can cause irreversible damage to sensitive components.
When used in conjunction with suitable footwear, the Anti-static Flooring range will safely dissipate charge to ground faster than it accumulates. The anti-static range also fulfils the three flooring criteria outlined in ANSI/ESD S20.20, which requires a system resistance of a person through the floor and to ground of less than 35 megohms.
Electro-static discharge (ESD) can pose a threat to sensitive electronic equipment, and in environments that handle volatile gases, powders, liquids or other substances it can even be a potentially dangerous ignition source. This charge can quickly build up within a floor when subjected to regular traffic from people and wheeled equipment.
To minimise these concerns, a controlled electrostatic protected area (EPA) can be created by installing an epoxy coating that safely dissipates electrostatic charge to ground faster than it accumulates.
Flowcrete UK’s specialist anti-static finish fulfils the three flooring criteria outlined in ANSI/ESD S20.20, which requires a system resistance of a person through the floor and to ground of less than 35 megohms.
