PART THREE: EXECUTION
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.
Product Testing: Pre-test material bond strength to substrate
per ElectraGuard 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
A. Prepare substrates in accordance with
B. Ensure substrate is clean, free of dirt, oil,
grease, wax and other compounds which may inhibit bonding of
ElectraGuard to substrate.
C. Repair cracked and
eroded concrete in accordance with methods approved by United
Static Control Products as posted at the following URL:
A. Mask all encumbrances such as existing wall base and columns
prior to application of coatings in accordance with
B. Install electrical grounding foil in accordance with
manufacturers recommended grounding methods.
C. Ensure that concrete or other substrate is visibly dry.
D. Mix ElectraGuard components in accordance with manufacturer’s
instructions. Do not add thinners to any component of this
conductive floor coating system.
E. Apply 1st coat of ElectraGuard to prepared concrete per
manufacturers recommended guidelines. Allow to cure for at least
12 hours prior to proceeding.
F. Apply optional coating of ElectraBond 20B should concrete
repair be excessive and shadow through the first coat of
G. Apply 2nd coat of ElectraGuard per manufacturers recommended
guidelines. Allow to cure at least 12 hours prior to proceeding.
H. Apply 3rd coat of ElectraGuard per manufacturers
recommended guidelines. Allow a minimum of 48 hours prior to
proceeding. This third coat provides optimum esthetics.
I. Apply 2 thin coats of ElectraThane wear resistant sealer
using a synthetic loop end finish mop or wax applicator. Allow
to dry a minimum of 1 hour between coats for drying.
J. Apply 1 thin final coat of ElectraGlaze esd floor finish
using a synthetic loop end finish mop or wax applicator allow
to dry thoroughly (approximately 2 hours) prior to loading the
flooring with equipment.
A. Allow floor to cure 7 to 10 days. Test flooring to
ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 (page four, table two) TR-53 Footwear /
Flooring Compliance Verification utilizing methods partially
incorporated into ANSI/ESD STM7.1-2013 and STM 97.1.
Note: Please call or
email United Tech Support should further clarification on
test methods be required.
A. The ElectraGuard system gains hardness and conductivity
during a curing phase lasting approximately 2 weeks. Protect
floor coating system while curing and especially during move in
of heavy equipment.
