Converting Standard Tiles into ESD Tiles

How to make standard tiles ESD Safe and PASS the ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 Standards that are MANDATORY for compliance in electronic manufacturing THIS YEAR!

Standard vinyl composition tiles (or VCT as it's known in the industry) has been a mainstay floor covering for well over 50 years.  It's probably the most popular floor covering in the world. Why? It's robust, bonds very well to concrete, is inexpensive and can handle some rolling loads with ease.

 

The Problem? VCT is highly insulative!

 

 Tribo-electrification (contact and separation between a person's shoes or rolling carts in combination with the VCT) generates static potential in the thousands of volts. 

 

VCT just can't provide the level of ESD control required in static control environments (antistatic floor finish doesn't have enough conductivity). Covering standard VCT with ElectraGuard is reliable, saves the costly removal of the VCT and provides outstanding longevity and premium static control. ElectraGuard esd epoxy is much more resilient than mere ESD floor paints although application and preparation are similar. ElectraGuard is warranted for lifetime conductivity, it's economical, long lasting and very resistant to chemicals.  The ElectraGuard Hi Gloss System can be high speed polished for a mirror like shine. ElectraGuard meets the newest specifications for static control including the ANSI ESD S 20.20-2014, 97.2 standards that are now mandatory in electronic manufacturing this year!

 

Installation Overview: Remove floor wax and coatings that may interfere with the adhesion of the ElectraGuard Floor Paint by stripping the floor with ElectraStrip. Follow the directions for use and observe the safety precautions when using this product. Double rinse the tiles with cool clean water and allow the tiles to thoroughly dry. Install the electrical floor ground. Install a bond strength test kit and observe the results. If the results prove good adhesion roll 3 coats of ElectraGuard (one per day for three days). After the final coat allow 24 hours for the paint to cure and mop on 2 thin coats of ElectraThane and one very thin coat of ElectraGlaze. These sealers may be applied all in the same day. Please see the full instructions prior to using this system.

 

Typical Material Cost: About $1.25 per square foot.

Typical Coverage: ElectraGuard: 350 Sq / Ft per gallon per coat.

Typical Coverage for the Sealers: 1,500 Sq / Ft per gallon per coat.
