Anti-Static Flooring

When it comes to many manufacturing and industrial processes there can be a build up of static electricity which can cause a risk to both the workers and the equipment which they use.

In certain industrial environments the attraction or adhesion of dust may present a problem. In areas where volatile gases, powders or liquids are processed, stray electric currents are undesirable and potentially dangerous.  In areas where sensitive electrical devices are manufactured, electrostatic discharges may damage these components.  Each of these areas will have requirements for static controlled floors.

 

Consequences of static charges

 

Less obvious consequences of static charge build up on floors are cleaning problems arising where materials, such as powder, might adhere to the floor surface. Such situations may be created when old concrete floors, re-furbished with resin flooring, which do not take into account the reduction of the excellent but unpredictable static controlled properties of ground floor concrete.   Certain environments may call for the control of electrostatic build up to be achieved by a number of measures which support the use of a static controlled floor finish. This may include the use of wrist straps, specialist footwear, static controlled chairs, tables and workwear.

How it works

 

Step 1 – Coating Priming
