Flowcrete’s Antistatic Flooring range has been designed to safely ground or dissipate the build-up of electro-static charge in sensitive environments.
Electro-static Discharge (ESD) refers to the rapid, spontaneous transfer of electro-static charge induced by a high electro-static field. Charge can build-up while simply walking across the floor of a processing environment. Without flooring materials equipped with adequate protection, this charge can cause irreversible damage to sensitive components.
When used in conjunction with suitable footwear, the Anti-static Flooring range will safely dissipate charge to ground faster than it accumulates. The antistatic range also fulfils the three flooring criteria outlined in ANSI/ESD S20.20, which requires a system resistance of a person through the floor and to ground of less than 35 megohms.
