SELECT ESD FLOOR COATINGS FOR STATIC CONTROL

 

Overview and goals: The purpose of the following testing is to identify floor coatings that  fully comply the latest recommendations of ANSI ESD S 2020-2007 (the latest standards) with an electrical resistance level (per 97.1 testing) of < 3.5E07 (35 meg-ohms). 97.1 is a combination resistance test that takes into account the technician, in conductive heel straps in conjunction with the resistance values of the flooring material and it's attachment to ground.

 

Recent industry accepted standards have changed dramatically in the last two years to better accommodate the increased sensitivity of today's advanced micro circuitry to an electrostatic discharge event. A flooring material that is merely below 1.0E09 no longer meets the new standards in most instances. ESD flooring that falls in the static dissipative range will soon become obsolete. 

 

Chemical coatings that increase the conductivity of existing anti-static (static dissipative) flooring will provide a viable, cost effective alternative to total esd flooring replacement or for use as an economical covering for existing vinyl composition tile (VCT) and bare concrete. Thus it is the goal of this study to provide documented evidence of  coating conductivity and to identify materials that meet the new resistance levels.

 

Introduction: This report documents a series of electrical conductivity test performed on various substrates including concrete filled metal testing trays rendered esd (static control) compliant via the application of ElectraGlaze ESD Floor Wax, ElectraGuard ESD epoxy Paint and ElectraSeal static control concrete sealer. Grounding of substrate specimen comprised of an appropriately placed Copper 3' x 3' x .125 thick panel reliably attached to primary electrical building ground and placed beneath the concrete filled galvanized testing tray. All materials tested were manufactured in compliance with specifications issued by United SCP Incorporated to (and by) United SCP approved chemical manufacturers. The following testing was performed in a temperature and humidity controlled environment set to replicate many typical job site environments.  All testing was performed in accordance with the Industry Accepted Standards of EOS-ESD S7.1 as specified by ANSI ESD S 20.20-2007.

Equipment:  Equipment interpreting readings of electrical conductivity consisted of a Prostat PRS-801 (S.N. # 4990149) precision resistance instrument operated by a programmed microprocessor (controlling voltage selection, electrification periods and display functions).  It should be noted that each reading posted by the Prostat actually consist of over 100 multiple resistivity readings of which the device collects, averages and stores.  Collected representative readings from testing procedures were subsequently stored in non-volatile memory storage device and transferred electronically to Notebook Computer.  Accuracy of readings at this range (with selected cables and electrodes utilized for this test) is +/- 2%.  Original calibration and certification of testing system was performed by said manufacturer on 08/04/12 and is valid for one year from this date. All calibration for testing instruments were provided in accordance with NCSL Z540, traceable through reference standards maintained by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), by comparison to natural physical constants or self-calibrating ratio type measurements.  Data from procedures were collected; results averaged, condensed and documented as follows.
