In industries where electronic components are involved, electrostatic discharge can lead to the failure of sensitive devices. An ESD floor must consist of materials designed to specific electrical resistance requirements.
High-performance ESD floor coverings with static dissipative properties will perform even better if certain factors such as the condition of the subfloor, the cost to repair and ‘maintain the ESD floor’ (also known as ‘บำรุงรักษาพื้น ESD‘ in the Thai language), and the experience and integrity of the applicator are taken into consideration.
There are various products available on the market, as well as many installation contractors. Professional contractors who are experienced, knowledgeable, who can provide turn installation, must be your starting point.
There are various products available including ESD epoxy and polyurethane coatings, to carpets, rubber, and vinyl.
The only vinyl floor ESD to consider called vinyl tile (SVT). It takes a lot of maintenance, but when vinyl SVT is managed with attractive protection. The material is relatively cheap, but the installation and annual maintenance costs can be prohibited.
The biggest rubber conductive advantage is that it is effective to prevent static in areas where pounded footwear does not, or cannot be used – places such as computer laboratories, etc.
High-quality epoxy and easy-to-fitting urethane, low maintenance, durable, attractive, and cost-effective. Solid color, high gloss, and finished satin available.
