We’ve all experienced a minor electric “shock” or discharge of static electricity when touching a door handle or metal object after walking across a carpeted floor. At worst, these electric discharges are annoying or perhaps mildly painful, but what if you’re handling delicate electronic equipment that is sensitive to electrical events?.
Facilities that manufacture and repair sensitive electronics such as semiconductors and avionic instruments need comprehensive plans to protect both the equipment and employees. Oftentimes, static control floor coatings are a part of this plan.
Tennant ESD Conductive ECE (Electrostatic Conductive Epoxy) is a three coat, 30 mil, semi-gloss system with an epoxy topcoat of Eco-ECE™.
Tennant ESD Dissipative SCT (Static Control Topcoat) is a three coat, 35 mil system, with an epoxy topcoat of Eco-SCT™. This economical, aromatic system is available in a gloss finish.
Tennant ESD Dissipative SDS (Static Dissipative System) is a three coat, 25 mil system, with a urethane topcoat of Eco-SDS™. This premier system is light stable, chemical resistant and is available in a satin finish.
While we all come into contact with static electricity on a daily basis, it is rarely a cause for concern. But in facilities that process and manufacture sensitive electronics, explosive materials, or volatile chemicals, static electricity can pose a threat in a variety of ways.
What is Electrostatic Dissipative (ESD) and Conductive Flooring? Electrostatic dissipative flooring, also known as ESD flooring, works like a grounding rod. It is conductive at the level appropriate for allowing static electricity to safely flow through it and reach a grounding point, where the charge is then removed from the room. ESD epoxy and urethane flooring systems improve safety by allowing for the continual discharge and dissipation of a certain level of electric energy in a given space. Where do you typically use ESD and conductive flooring? ESD flooring is typically used in facilities that require protection of electronics. Conductive flooring is typically used in potentially explosive settings. Therefore so it is important to consider Tennant’s various static control flooring systems if your facility handles sensitive electronics or volatile, unstable materials.
