ESD

In today’s electronic age, electronic components and volatile chemicals can be found everywhere. Static electricity can result in significant damage, injury and financial loss. Even when people are equipped with static-sensitive devices, inadvertent contact can occur.

An electrostatic discharge during assembly of sensitive equipment can cause damage that may not be noticed for months. Prime Polymers installs the most comprehensive ESD line in the industry. Our ESD flooring significantly outperform the competition because the products are protected by multiple patents. That is why Prime ESD floors are not only trusted by Fortune 500 companies, but also by the U.S. Armed Forces.

ESD epoxy coating systems designed to impart electrostatic control properties to a variety of substrates in conjunction

with ESD footwear, including existing non-conductive substrates. They are available in both a ANSI

S20.20 compliant version and conductive resistance ranges to meet specific industry and DOD

standards.

Where to Use 

 ESD can be used in almost any environment where the damaging effects of electrostatic

discharge (ESD) cannot be tolerated. Industries currently using these coatings are:

■ Electronics

■ Data Processing

■ Military/Aerospace

■ Photographic, graphic arts

■ Hazardous industries (dust or explosion hazards)

Advantages

■ Consistent resistance measurements are obtained when testing in accordance with standard methods.

■ Very low body voltage generation values possible when wearing heel straps C or SD footwear.

■ Conforms to ANSI S20.20, < 3.5 x 107 ohms when tested in accordance with ANSI STM 97.1

■ Available in conductive range (2.5 X 104 to 1.0 X 106) ohms per ANSI/ESD S7.1/ASTM F-150

■ Maintains electrical conductivity throughout the entire thickness of the system.

■ Does not depend on relative humidity for conductive properties.

■ Tough, smooth, non-porous surface is easy to clean and maintain.

■ Good abrasion resistance.
