ESD / Anti-Static Flooring
An ESD, anti static coatings, flooring system serves as the safe control of electrical static charge that accumulates from a person’s movement across a polymer floor. ESD flooring helps to greatly reduce or eliminate the potential of accidental electrostatic discharge, which can damage sensitive electronic components during manufacture.
Protective Industrial Polymers has developed a full range of ESD anti static coatings designed to meet and exceed the current performance standards. These particulate-based systems perform more consistently than traditional ESD coatings, carpet and tile. Because the ESD component is an integral part of the chemistry of these polymers, the system will consistently perform with no hot or dead spots. This means more consistent ESD performance throughout the entire thickness of the coating, not just the surface.
Most often, the need for an ESD Floor (usually as a critical component of an entire ESD program) is necessary in the electronics industry. This is especially true in circuit board assembly and production. We will work closely with our contractor partners to install the ESD anti static coatings solution that meets your requirements.
Protect 100 ESD HB
ESD High-Build Epoxy System
Protect 100 ESD HB is a high solids, three-component, high-build epoxy resin system designed to facilitate electrostatic control. Protect 100 ESD HB is supplied with a blended cycloaliphatic amine curing agent that exhibits good UV and chemical resistance. This product produces a durable gloss finish.
Protect 125 ESD WR-GP
ESD Epoxy Ground Plane System
Protect 125 ESD WR-GP is a two-component, waterborne, solvent-free epoxy resin ground plane system designed to develop a uniform, non-tracking ground plane to facilitate a consistent electrostatic discharge. When used in combination with Protect 100 ESD HB or Protect 170 ESD SR it produces lower surface resistance readings to meet the mandated requirements of ignition control applications.
Protect 170 ESD SR
Solvent-Resistant ESD Epoxy System
Protect 170 ESD SR is a three-component, highly chemical-resistant, highly cross-linked coating designed to provide electrostatic control. Protect 170 ESD SR is designed to be applied as an epoxy top coat or used to recoat an existing epoxy floor. This product is designed for controlling ignition risk in areas exposed to flammable solvents and vapors.
Protect 200 ESD UR
Low Odor, High Solids ESD Urethane System
Protect 200 ESD UR is a low odor, three-component, chemical-resistant, aliphatic polyester ESD urethane coating designed to develop electrostatic control properties. Protect 200 ESD UR produces a non-yellowing, thin-film, semi-gloss to satin finish and is available in a variety of colors including near white and bright blues. Protect 200 ESD UR can be installed in a number of different environments where the damaging effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD) cannot be tolerated. Primary industries that use ESD flooring include Electronic Assembly, Data Processing, Military/Aerospace, Hazardous Industries (dust or explosion hazards). It is suited for applications over top of an insulative epoxy primer or build coat.
Protect 200 ESD Conductive UR
Low Odor, High Solids ESD Conductive Urethane System
Protect 200 ESD Conductive UR is a very low odor, three-component, chemical-resistant, aliphatic polyester ESD urethane coating designed to develop electrostatic control properties. Protect 200 ESD Conductive UR produces a non-yellowing, thin-film, semi-gloss to satin finish and is available in a variety of colors and textures. Protect 200 ESD Conductive UR is designed to impart electrical resistance readings below 1 million ohms when tested in accordance to ANSI/ESD S7.1 and ASTM F-150 test methods.
Conductive Vinyl Ester System
Protect VE-Conductive coating is a 10-15 mils thick epoxy novalac vinyl ester resin top coat system designed to facilitate electrostatic control while exhibiting excellent resistance to both aliphatic and aromatic organic and inorganic acids.
Protect VE-GP is a vinyl ester conductive ground plane primer designed to be used in conjunction with Protect VE-Conductive top coat to achieve electrostatic control properties.
