An ESD (electrostatic discharge) discharge can have a serious impact on sensitive electrical equipment yet be so small as to be hardly noticeable.
In industries where electronic components or volatile chemicals are involved, static electricity can result in significant damage, injury and financial loss. Even when trained to handle static-sensitive devices, inadvertent contact can occur.
In electronics manufacturing and assembly, pharmaceuticals and healthcare an uncontrolled electrostatic discharge can result in serious component failure.
In other areas such as the ordnance industry or manufacturing plants blending fine powders or using solvents, the spark created is capable of causing an explosion.
The three product range of Pumaflor ESD flooring has been engineered to combat this problem by providing a controlled discharge of static electricity to earth.
Pumaflow ESD is a self-smoothing flow applied epoxy resin topping, applied at a nominal thickness of 3mm, that provides a static dissipative floor with a smooth high gloss finish.
Pumadur SL ESD is a self-smoothing flow applied polyurethane resin topping, applied at a nominal thickness of 3mm, that provides a static dissipative floor with a smooth matt finish.
Pumadur HF ESD is a trowel applied polyurethane resin topping, applied at a nominal thickness of 6mm, that provides a heavy duty static dissipative floor with a textured matt finish.
The Pumaflor ESD range of floor finishes have been designed with the highest order of durability, impact and abrasion resistance. The range of surface finishes makes them the ideal products for environments such as electronics manufacturing, solvent and powder filling and handling, pharmaceutical industry, laboratories, etc.
The Pumaflor ESD range of floor finishes are suitable for application in situations where the concrete surface is in a good fair faced condition, even with minor chipping, gouging cracks exist – these can all be completely eliminated with this type of floor finish.
Pumaflor ESD flooring is dense and seamless although structural movement joints that exist within the underlying concrete slab must be reflected through in order to avoid uncontrolled cracks appearing in the new floor finish.
