Electrical discharges can cause substantial damage to electronic parts in production, which can lead to considerable damages of the manufactured products. Therefore modern factories are provided with conductive floors. ESD floors must be regularly tested for sufficient conductivity in accordance with IEC 61340-5-1:2016 and ANSI 20.20. In cases where the floor is no longer sufficiently conductive, conductivity is restored again with the Dr. Schutz ESD Floor Systems.
Application of transparent or coloured lacquer:
After an intensive strip-cleaning the floor is wet sanded. No dust, dirt, or noise are being produced while working. Subsequently the floor is lacquered either with ESD Base Coat, or ESD Color Base, according to the wishes of the customer. ESD Base Coat makes it possible to retain the current look of the floor, the protective coat is transparent and highly conductive. By contrast, ESD Color Base is applied when a new look of the floor is desired, or when the customer would like to have the old colour but looking like new.
On-Top coating with ESD Top Coat:
After a very short drying time for the first lacquer coat, the floor is given an additional, extremely durable and highly conductive on-top coating. This provides long-lasting protection of the floor against scratches, damage and dirt and ensures that maintenance cleaning is easier and more cost-effective in the long term. At the same time conductivity is retained.
