Outstanding conductivity, Brilliant Shine
ESD floor finish provides protection, fights scuff marks and extends the life of your static control floor
Like you, an esd floor works hard for it's living. Unlike you (we hope), ESD flooring needs to perform flawlessly often 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Conventional wisdom from the esd flooring material manufacturers dictate that their materials do not require (in fact they do not recommend) using any type of esd floor wax.
Unfortunately, this outdated "conventional wisdom" hasn't had to maintain a floor in a manufacturing environment.
Past reasons for not using an esd floor finish primarily focused on the somewhat large increase in resistance levels that many of the older formulations achieved. Newer formulations are tailored to provide resistance levels compliant with the latest EOS ESD 2020 guidelines, providing only marginal decreases in conductivity and (generally speaking) only providing these decreases to flooring materials that start out in the conductive range (<1.0E06 RTG per S7.1). ESD and static control flooring that falls into the static dissipative range (>1.0E06 <1.0E09) will typically see slight increases in conductivity.
Reductions in tribocharging (as well as increases in the floor finishes conductivity) are further enhanced by high speed polishing of the finish. It's important to note that modifications to the floors conductivity will be minimal with typical ambient relative humidity conditions prevalent in most manufacturing environments, therefore it's best to fully evaluate this unique floor finish in your environment under your operating and load conditions. Check your specifications and test your floors electrical conductivity prior to applying small 2'x2' test patches. Apply the finish according to our recommendations in area's that receive the most abuse possible. Evaluate the product for visual performance against wear, electrical conductivity and ease of application. Remember "all static control floor finishes are not created equal" (contrary to what your local floor maintenance supplier may tell you). Thorough evaluation and the right product will yield dramatic results.
