Soaring Above the Competition
The newly constructed hangar, required a resinous floor coating system that would leave a lasting impression while holding up to high traffic. Most
importantly, they needed a system that would help dissipate the build-up of static electricity, helping keep their avionics, equipment, and personnel
safe from static discharge. Tennant’s Eco-SDS™ Satin System (Static Dissipative System) was the answer to their static control needs. The final result,
Eco-SDS™ Satin delivered a dissipative functional floor that is easy to maintain, with a striking appearance.
Additionally, the installation of a moisture vapor barrier system was a must with their newly poured concrete slab. New concrete usually contains high
moisture levels for several months as it continues to cure. The Yulista hangar slab tested high in moisture, at more than 90% relative humidity. As a
result, in order to protect the Eco-SDS™ Satin system from the damaging effects of moisture, Tennant’s Eco-MVS™ (Moisture Vapor System) was the
perfect solution. The two layer system, helps create a barrier where moisture is unable to penetrate through, allowing the Eco-SDS™ system to function
properly, while keeping its appearance free from moisture bubbles.
Moisture Vapor System: Eco-MVS™
Before applying the Static Control system, a moisture vapor system is
applied. This system consists of two coats of Eco-MVS™. First a thin prime
coat is applied, followed by a thicker grout coat of Eco-MVS™, helping create
a barrier where moisture is unable to surface and penetrate the epoxy.
- Can be used on new concrete
- VOC compliant
- Available in a 15 mil or 23 mil system dependent on RH moisture testing
Static Dissipative System: Eco-SDS™
After the Moisture vapor system has been applied and cured, Tennant’s
multipurpose epoxy, Eco-MPE™ is applied at 15 mils. Finally a topcoat of
Eco-SDS™ Satin is applied at 3 mils, creating an aesthetically pleasing floor
that stands up to high traffic, while helping keep product and personnel safe
from unwanted build-up of static electricity.
- Electrostatic discharge control
- Low odor / low VOC
