PART TWO: PRODUCTS

2.1 MANUFACTURER

A. United SCP Incorporated, Colorado City, CO 81019. Phone (719) 676-3928 (option 3 for tech support during normal business hours, option 8 for after hours tech support).

2.2 HEAVY DUTY STATIC CONTROL TOPICAL CONCRETE SEALANT

A.  ElectraSeal static conductive concrete sealer.

1) Enhanced urethane topical concrete sealer.

2) Electrical Resistance per ANSI-ESD STM7.1-2013, >1.0E04, <1.0E09.

3) Available colors: Translucent

PART THREE: EXECUTION

3.1 EXAMINATION

A. Examine substrate to receive static control coating system. Notify Architect if substrate is unacceptable. Do not begin preparation or application until conditions are acceptable.

B. Pre-application Product Testing: Pre-test material bond strength to substrate per ElectraSeal product instructions.

C. Test vapor emission of concrete slab (if applicable) per calcium chloride test method ASTM F-1869. Should concrete vapor emissions results exceed 8 lbs per 1,000 SF/24 hour period contact United SCP prior to proceeding with installation.

D. Ensure new concrete has the following properties:

 

1) Maximum water/cement ratio of 0.45

2) Cured 60 days at a minimum of 70 degrees F.

3) Minimum compressive strength of 3,500 PSI.

4) Minimum tensile strength of 200 PSI.

 

3.2 SURFACE PREPARATION

Specifier Notes: A properly prepared substrate is essential for successful application. Contaminants, dust and sealers of an unknown origin may inhibit bonding of coating to substrate.

A. Prepare substrates in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.

B. Ensure substrate is clean, free of dirt, oil, grease, wax and other compounds which may inhibit bonding of ElectraSeal to substrate.

C. Repair cracked and eroded concrete in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. Remove and repair unsound substrates.

3.3 APPLICATION

A. Mask all encumbrance such as existing wall base and columns prior to application of coatings in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.

B. Install electrical grounding foil in accordance with manufacturer's recommended grounding methods as is shown here. Use one strap per each 2,000 square feet of flooring material.

C. Ensure that concrete or other substrate is visibly dry.

C. ElectraSeal is designed for use as supplied. Do not add thinners to any component of this conductive floor coating system.

D. Apply 1st coat of ElectraSeal to prepared concrete per manufacturers recommended guidelines. Do not over apply - apply a thin even coat.  Allow to cure for at least 1 hour prior to proceeding.

E. Apply 2nd coat of ElectraSeal per manufacturers recommended guidelines. Do not over apply - apply a thin even coat. Allow to cure at least 1 hour prior to proceeding. Allow coatings 1 hour to dry before subjecting to foot traffic and 24 hours prior to subjecting to moderate forklift traffic. 

3.4 TESTING

A. Allow the coated floor to cure 7 to 10 days and test the flooring to compliance with ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 per test method  ANSI-ESD STM7.1-2013 (electrical resistance point to point and electrical resistance to ground) and STM 97.2 (voltage measurement in combination with a person). Note: Per ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 compliance verification to ESD TR-53-01-15 (flooring section) may be substituted in lieu of testing to 97.2 should this testing be unavailable in your area.

3.5 PROTECTION

A. The ElectraSeal system gains hardness and conductivity during a curing phase lasting 48 hours. Protect floor coating system while curing and especially during move in of heavy equipment.
