WHY USE AN ESD EPOXY FLOOR PAINT?
Today's reality dictates an increasingly daunting task. To meet the latest NFPA or DOD static control standards and assure your successful manufacturing of static sensitive product esd flooring is a must!
But according to DA PAM 385-64 and many other standards ESD Tiles are not approved for use where potentially explosive particulate is present due to the seams.
Does it make sense to spend 10.00 per installed square foot for a THICK Set Epoxy?
Most think NOT!
Like you, we understand the importance of your esd flooring. It must be easy to maintain, capable of handling ALL types of traffic, look great and never EVER stop working! It must be realistically priced and in many cases capable of handling concrete vapor emissions that cause other ESD flooring materials to fail miserably.
CONSIDERATIONS WHEN MAKING YOUR SELECTION:
According to DA PAM 385-64 ESD Tiles are not approved for use where explosive powders and dust are present. Why?
The seams collect the powders and dust and may cause ignition hazards. An ElectraGuard ESD Epoxy floor over a properly prepared substrate is SEAMLESS. ElectraGuard epoxy floor paint is much tougher than mere latex based conductive floor paints and has a 10 year life expectancy. ElectraGuard has the ability to bond to existing concrete and many other types of hard surface flooring (including non compliant anti-static vinyl and even old asbestos laden tile). ElectraGuard is very popular in new construction, for leased facilities, facilities experiencing concrete vapor emission problems and for all clients expecting to get the most floor for their money. Long and Short? You can pay more but you'll never find a better hard surface ESD Floor!
Please Note: When using this product to meet DoD 4145.26-M the conductivity must hit very specific standards with minimum resistance ranges tailored to the voltage in the facility and maximum levels that are tested in conjunction with your footwear or heel grounders. The insulative properties may be adjusted upwards with an application of ElectraThane (generally one coat). Samples of your dye lot may be sent for testing prior to full scale use - pretesting the conductivity in combination with your footwear is recommended prior to full scale use.

Please Note: When placing your order for this material through sales or on our shopping cart please specify ElectraGuard High Velocity for an epoxy that test with an electrical resistance of >25 kΩ and <1 MΩ at our facility and with our recently calibrated test equipment. What you get with your order: We pretest your dye lot on a 6" x 6" 3/16 insulative Eucatex-Eucaboard using an industry compliant megohmmeter and compliant electrodes at 500 VDC. We test Resistance to ground by attaching a ground lead to the sample and placing an industry compliant 2.5 inch 5 pound electrode on top of the sample. We email you the results of this test and retain the sample and a container of the specific dye lot used for a period of 5 years. It is the customer's responsibility to pretest the dye lot on their substrate using their methods prior to full scale deployment.
Use brooms, dust mops, damp mops buckets and other cleaning tools dedicated for use on the ESD flooring only. Mark them as "for use in ESD area only." On a daily basis: Sweep the floor using a soft bristle broom to remove large abrasives such as wire clippings, nuts, bolts, etc. The use of a floor magnet to pick up ferrous metal shavings etc. helps avoid scratches. If the flooring is exceedingly dusty sweep it using an oil free sweeping compound that will leave no residue. If the flooring is slightly dusty simply dry dust mop. As needed: Damp mop using a diluted solution of ElectraClean and water. For more aggressive cleaning Auto Scrub the flooring to remove ground in dirt and contaminants. ElectraClean works well with all types of Auto Scrubbers. Use the softest pads available that will get the job done. To remove scuff marks: Spray buff using a high speed polisher equipped with a white or champagne colored pad and ElectraShine.
Coverage: 350 square feet per gallon per coat.

*When using this product for compliance to DoD 4145-M always pretest its conductivity with the conductive footwear used in your facility prior to full scale application. Typical resistance to ground of the unsealed ElectraGuard coating after an 8 day curing phase is >25kΩ to <1 MΩ, with a typical resistance of under 500 KΩ when tested with the appropriate electrodes and test instruments capable of generating 500 volts and a short circuit current of 2.5mA to 10.0mA.
Nuances of ElectraGuard:ElectraGuard Flooring is a thin set epoxy applied using paint rollers. As such, minor deviations in thickness, texture, color and shading may be present in the coating. Deviations in the concrete profile may shadow through any thin set epoxy or floor paint as will the seams between tiles (if applied to standard VCT). United recommends the use of Titanium esd chair mats in front of the workstation to protect any esd flooring from chair caster damage. ElectraGuard is NOT designed to encapsulate the concrete. Hence, ElectraGuard is not warranted against concrete contaminant bleed through. Other conditions apply - please see the Warranty for full details. Dye Lots may vary. For best results place your order for the entire amount needed for the current project plus possible future expansions. Prior to opening the pails check dye lots and materials against your purchase order. IMPORTANT! United makes every effort to ship the correct product, contact us immediately should you receive the wrong material. United SCP is not responsible for installation of the incorrect material, color or dye lot due to errors in pulling your order. The shelf life of the product is 2 years as long as it is stored in a cool dry climate and in unopened containers. ElectraGuard as applied does not have a shine. It is a low glare matte finish. For a high shine finish, top coat with the ElectraThane and ElectraGlaze.
