Making the correct choice of flooring system when designing an atmosphere suitable for the manufacturing of sensitive electronic assemblies is important for a number of reasons. Specifically, one of these is to defend against the harmful effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD).  Antistatic flooring is designed to safely ground and dissipate the build-up of electrostatic charge in a sensitive environment. Electrostatic discharge refers to the rapid and spontaneous transfer of electrostatic charge which is induced by a high electrostatic field. In addition, a charge can build up while walking across the floor of a processing environment. Without flooring materials equipped with adequate protection, this charge can cause irreversible damage to these incredibly sensitive components.

When this specialised resin flooring is used with suitable footwear, any static generated will dissipate into the ground faster than it will accumulate. 

Epoxy resin and polyurethane flooring systems are important for laboratories, clean rooms, worktops, repair centres and other situations where you need not just an attractive finish but also somewhere where there may be a risk of chemical spillages of aggressive liquids and chemicals. Anti-static flooring is available as an option when necessary for your application.

Other benefits of anti-static flooring include its durability – it lasts for years to come.

It’s very easy to clean, which makes hygiene an easy issue to address – which is very important in industries where anti-static flooring would be essential.

Electrostatic discharge

ESD can cause some harmful effects in the industry, including causing the failure of solid-state electronic components like integrated circuits. When these are exposed the voltages of static can cause permanent damage which can compromise the operation of said device.

Labs and centres where this delicate work is carried out are therefore often maintained as an ‘anti-static zone’ where the environment is carefully designed and maintained as an area where this is very unlikely to happen.

It can be difficult to understand the technicalities of the anti-static flooring, and so have a word with the Reme team on 01745 856572.  We will be only too happy to assist you in this regard, we are very experienced in all kinds of resin flooring applications, and we strive to inspire you with confidence that incorporating anti-static into the system design of the build of your upcoming project is well within reach.

We understand the importance of identifying all of the properties that you will need for floor space, making our designs bespoke for many different applications.
