Electrostatic discharge is a problem that cannot be ignored. The scuff of a shoe, the scrape of a chair creates an electron imbalance and, although the resulting discharge may be so small that the human body cannot feel it, the consequences can be serious.
In electronics manufacturing, in pharmaceuticals, healthcare, ordnance manufacture and storage, ESD incidents can often cause material, component or system failure - costly and perhaps even dangerous problems.
The Polyflor ESD range has been specifically engineered to combat this problem at source, by facilitating a uniform flow of static electricity directly to a ground point.
The range covers all major applications and includes Static Dissipative, Electrostatic Conductive and Conductive ROF floorings, each of which combines static control properties with the hardwearing and decorative properties that Polyflor is renowned for.
All Polyflor ESD floorcoverings are homogeneous in construction to ensure that these properties are present through out the product, guaranteeing a consistent and effective appearance and performance.
They have excellent abrasion and chemical resistance, and can be welded to create a completely impervious floor, offering no sanctuary to dirt and bacteria.
The closed surface and high vinyl content make Polyflor ESD floorcoverings easy and economical to maintain. So they'll go on looking good and performing well for years, providing a long tern solution to the ESD problem.
Polyflor ESD products can be used in conjunction with static control clothing, footwear and wrist straps; special workstations; ionisers; and humidity controllers.
They are available in sheet format or as 608 x 608mm tiles - the preferred size for access flooring.
Installation is obviously critical but it can be carried out by any competent commercial flooring contractor, using known and accepted procedures and Polyflor approved adhesives.
ESD - static dissipative
Polyflor Static Dissipative products are engineered for use where static control is required, but the resistance level of the floor does not need to be as low as that provided by a conductive floor. These floor coverings are ideal for use in telecommunications installations, computer rooms, and healthcare facilities such as scanner rooms, X-Ray suites and operating suites, as well as electronics manufacturing. The range comprises Polyflor Finesse SD, Polyflor 2000 SD and Polyflor SD.
ESD - electrostatic conductive
Where the floor system including the footwear is the primary means of grounding personnel, the resistance of the combination is recommended in BSEN/IEC 61340-5-1 as being between 7.5 x 105 and 3.5 x 107 ohms. Recommended applications include electronic manufacturing, product assembly, inspection and storage laboratories, clean rooms and defence establishments. The range consists of Polyflor EC, Polyflor Conductive ROF and Polyflor Finesse EC.
