The fragile and expensive nature of sensitive electronic components means that they require a controlled and stable electrostatic protected area (EPA) during manufacture and assembly to ensure low scrap rates, limit failures and meet the customer’s high expectations.
The floor is a prime site for electrostatic build up, as simply walking across its surface can lead to an ESD event. You can create an effective EPA and ensure that an electronics facility is charged to fight electrostatic activity at ground level by selecting a seamless resin floor finish designed to deliver the ultimate in static control.
When used in conjunction with suitable footwear, Flowcrete’s static dissipative and conductive flooring systems can safeguard delicate electrical equipment from ESDs. Which type of antistatic solution to opt for depends on the amount of static that could potentially be generated as well as the sensitivity of the equipment on site.
Flowcrete’s high-performance flooring systems can also provide superior chemical resistance and an anti-slip profile to meet all of the specialised needs associated with the electro-manufacturing and processing industries.
Flowcrete recommends the following systems for use in electronic environments…
