Resilient and Rubber Electrostatic Dissipative Flooring Systems, and Epoxy or Urethane Static Dissipative Systems mitigate expensive losses for Manufacturers of electronic devices and companies that handle volatile chemicals.  New technology in ESD carpets make this an option in certain applications. These flooring systems are an integral part of Electrostatic Protective Areas (EPAs) where all conductive materials and workers are grounded to prevent charge build-up on sensitive electronic components. Tri-Co installed its first ESD Floor roughly 45 years ago, and has an impeccable record of successful installations.

Vinyl and Rubber ESD Floors

Both of these types of ESD Flooring are easy to maintain, and have no need for conductive wax.  They also meet or exceed A.D.A. slip resistance requirements.

Conductive elements manufactured into material, along with conductive adhesive and a copper grounding strip fastened to a ground point, quickly and safely remove static charges (see diagram above).

Epoxy, Urethane and MMA Acrylic ESD Floors

These ESD systems provide seamless, non-porous and easy to clean flooring surfaces that ground out static charges and prevent static elements from occurring.  Some of the main characteristics are listed below.  Tri-Co's experienced project managers will steer you to the correct system for each project.

Epoxy ESD systems offer a low odor solution with good abrasion and chemical resistance.

Epoxy-Urethane ESD systems provide superior abrasion and chemical resistance, making it the longest-wearing ESD system in the ESD industry.

Methyl methacrylate acrylic (MMA) systems offer a quick curing sealer for projects requiring a fast turn-a-round.  They also provide excellent UV resistance for good color stability.

ESD Carpet

ESD Carpet is the most recent electrostatic dissipative innovation.  This option is an ideal product to keep noise down in busy manufacturing areas, and provides a warmer alternative to the sterile look of epoxy and resilient systems.
