ESD flooring

In the past, ESD polymer flooring has been limited to a very small choice of color options.  This was due to the use of specialized ESD pigments which were used to make polymer coatings electrically active.

Today, the new generation of ESD flooring technology utilizes a highly transparent topcoat that serves as its own ground plane.  Protective Industrial Polymers is pioneering the future with its proprietary Surface Ground Plane™ ESD Coating Systems.  Because the surface of the system is the ground plane, it does not rely on a buried conductive black or dark gray ground plane which severely reduces your color possibilities.  The clear topcoat is the conductor!

Now, you can get a wide variety of color and decorative choices including:

  • Standard Solid Colors
  • Custom Color Matching
  • Quartz Media
  • Vinyl Flake
  • Mica Flake
  • Metallic Pigments
