Information below shows our actual "real life" test
results after installation at two Facilities (both approximately
70,000 sq/ft each) in separate parts of the Country (one
in Mexico, one in California). Testing was performed in
accordance with industry accepted standards of EOS ESD
7.1. These floors were installed "on grade" and
on cement. Further, the floors were grounded utilizing
the advanced parameters shown in How to Ground your new
ESD Floor. Your results may vary due to substrate, substrate
conditions and environmental conditions prevalent at the
*Tested at a relative humidity > 30%.
As is the case with many of the modern ESD Vinyls, PolyStat
is designed to work as a system in conjunction with GZ-C2000
or URAS conductive adhesive. When testing uninstalled,
static dissipative material (without the adhesive) PolyStat
SD will show a slightly higher resistance value than those
posted in our electrical specifications (prevalent only
with the static dissipative materials). PolyStat static
dissipative is designed with a built in resistance value
that provides added safety to employees that may come into
contact with higher voltage / amperage power sources. This
added resistance has shown minimal effect in it's ability
to drain ESD potential.
Extended Electrical Testing
Maintenance is dependant on the nature and intensity
of traffic and the specific requirements of the end user.
To keep cost low, without compromising standards of hygiene
and cleanliness, ESDVinylTile.com recommends
that a maintenance regime be specifically tailored to
your needs. Polishes or floor finishes that inhibit the
floors electrical performance must not be used. Remove
abrasives by sweeping on a regular basis. Damp mop with
warm water and approved ESDVinylTile.com.
ESD Cleaning solution as needed. A clean floor insures
consistent electrical performance. PolyStat ESD Vinyl
is initially supplied with a non-glare finish. If your
needs require a high shine, simply burnish the material
with a high speed floor buffing machine.
