ELECTRAGUARD ESD EPOXY SPECIFICATIONS

Mission Critical Conductive Floor Paint

Click Here for this document in a PDF format

Made in the U.S.A.PRODUCT HISTORY AND OVERVIEW: ElectraGuard was originally invented for use in DOD munitions applications in 1992. Over the years it has been further refined with patented advancements in structural integrity. ElectraGuard is exclusive to United SCP and a proven performer at a realistic price. ElectraGuard is a two part epoxy. Unlike mere latex or one part epoxy floor paints that may last a year or two the ElectraGuard System provides outstanding longevity (many clients report a 10 year service life and the product may easily be recoated if ever needed). The system is well suited for application on a variety of substrates including concrete, wood, well bonded standard vinyl tiles and more.

The ElectraGuard ESD Epoxy Floor Paint System meets or exceeds the latest most stringent standards of electrical conductivity and Tribocharge reduction. Leave "as is" for low glare matte finish or top coat with ElectraThane and or ElectraGlaze for a diamond like shine and ultimate wear resistance.

* Please Note: The above readings are reflective of three coats applied to concrete and allowed to cure for a 2 week period prior to testing. Other substrates (such as steel, wood, highly insulative ceramics and epoxy), ambient humidity, grounding techniques and coating thickness may alter your final results. Always pretest the coating to your internal specifications in a small inconspicuous area prior to full scale application. Resistance values may be easily adjusted upwards with additional coats of ElectraThane to allow the system to fall in the static dissipative range of >1.0E06 and <1.0E09.
