Select URAS Max (for permanent Installations) or URAS Releasable (for temporary installs and to reuse the flooring).

Place your order

 

Installation in a nutshell

  • Inspect material upon arrival. Store the rolls standing.

  • Allow them to acclimate. Rough cut the sheet vinyl to length and flatten.

  • Clean backing, remove dust, dirt and loose carbon dust.

  • Prepare subfloor. Install 2" Siga SuperTape around perimeter of room.

  • Install URAS (double cut seams).  Install grounding foil. Place sheet vinyl.

  • Roll the area all directions with a 100 pound vinyl roller.

  • Double cut slightly overlapped seams. Groove and heat weld. The heat welds shall be structurally sound and an integral part of the floor (not simply a filler for the groove). Note:  ALWAYS perform a mockup test prior to installing the entire floor to confirm that the bond strength and weldability are appropriate for your installation.

APPLICATION OVERVIEW: The area to receive the flooring shall be well lit, dry and weather tight. The HVAC system shall be functional and set at a temperature of 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit at least 2 weeks prior to, during and after the installation. Prior to installing the Titanium flooring allow it as well as the adhesive to acclimate to the ambient environmental conditions of the installation area for at least 72 hours.

 

NOTE: The Titanium sheet vinyl must lay flat and straight with no adhesive prior to installation. Due to the inherent nature of the conductive backing wipe or mop the backing clean of carbon dust, dirt and grime.

 

PREPARATION OF SUBSTRATES:

 

Well Bonded Epoxy, Vinyl Tiles and VCT: Thoroughly sweep and Vacuum floor to remove dust. Strip flooring of any wax, oil or grease using ElectraStrip. Follow the directions for use! Damp mop or auto scrub the existing floor with clean cool water mixed with 4 ounces of ElectraClean to each gallon of water used. Allow the area to dry thoroughly. Replace missing subfloor tiles and fill any deviations with Mapei Plani Patch (a Portland based concrete patching compound), smooth patched areas to create a level and smooth profile to avoid shadow thru of subsequent covering of the Titanium ESD Sheet Vinyl.

 

Installing SuperTape around perimeterInstall 2" SuperTape: Starting at a distance of 1" from the wall or perimeter of the area you wish to cover place a border of 2" wide United SCP Ultimate Bond SuperTape as is shown in V. Click HERE for more information on SuperTape


Unrolling URAS sheet Adhesive

Install URAS: Starting at wall attach sticky side of URAS to the prepared substrate. Slowly walk backwards toward opposite wall while lightly pulling on the run of URAS to help alleviate wrinkles in the product. Lower onto substrate. Double cut URAS to 2" wide SuperTape and smooth top surface (covered with wax paper liner) in place with a push broom. Repeat process but slightly overlap runs of URAS. Double cut overlapped seams of URAS. Note: Do not remove liner from either the URAS nor the SuperTape. All tapes should be flat and smooth prior to installing the ESD sheet vinyl.


Unroll Titanium ESD Sheet Vinyl over URASRough Cut Titanium Flooring: Starting about 3" up wall unroll preconditioned Titanium flooring over substrate as is shown in T1 and T2. Slightly overlap lengthwise seams by about 1.5 inches (for subsequent double cutting of the flooring).  

Note: Do not remove liner from either the URAS nor the SuperTape.

NOTE: The Titanium sheet must lay flat and straight with no adhesive prior to installation. The material may be loosely rolled back up immediately prior to installation should this make the material easier to handle during the installation phase.


Installing ESD floor grounding tape and remove liner from URASInstalling Ground Foil or Siga Circuit Tape and Titanium Flooring, 1st 1/2 of area: Roll back floor covering runs T1 and T2 to the middle of the area (in the direction of the run). Remove the liner from the exposed SuperTape (v). Starting at wall, remove the liner from the exposed URAS for about a foot (full width of install).

About 6 inches from the wall (and going over the exposed URAS) place a run of our 1/2 inch wide copper ground foil or our Siga Circuit tape the full length of install area (see red line on the drawing). It is imperative that this strip make reliable contact with the conductive backing of the flooring material. the ground strip may also be placed over the run of the SuperTape as well (if desired). The ground strips may be attached to an AC electrical ground by an electrician or positioned to intersect with an AC face plate cover and attached to ground as is shown here OR attached to a grounded metal column in the building as is shown here.  

Cut liner of URAS about 4 inches from where the exposed balance stops. Note: do not cut thru URAS. Fold up the paper liner dross. This paper liner material is fully recyclable, do a good deed, recycle it! Lay the floor covering over the exposed tapes.


Install second ground foil, remove remaining URAS sheet adhesive

Installing Ground Foil and Titanium Flooring, 2nd 1/2 of area: Roll back floor covering runs T1 and T2 to the middle of the area where the liner covered area stops. Remove the liner from the exposed SuperTape (v). Starting at wall, remove the liner from the exposed URAS for about a foot (full width of install).

Repeat the grounding process shown in figure 4. Fold up the paper liner dross. This paper liner material is fully recyclable, do a good deed, recycle it!  Lay the floor covering over the exposed tapes Continue the length wise overlap started on the 1st 1/2 (drawing 4). Double cut overlapped lengthwise seams (both pieces at the same time) using a hook blade knife. Remove dross. Loosely Trim ends to wall.

 


Roll esd floor with 100 pound vinyl rollerRoll flooring: Roll flooring using a standard 100 to 150 pound vinyl roller.

Heat weld seams for ultimate seam free esd flooringHeat weld seams to industry accepted standards. Note: All heat weld shall be structurally sound and an integral part of the floor (not simply a filler for the groove).

Note flooring may be heat welded immediately after installation.

Note: Floor may be opened to traffic immediately after install.
