ESD Floors vs. Conductive Floors – Which is The Better Epoxy Flooring System?

Although static electricity may seem innocent, it can actually be extremely hazardous in some facilities.  So epoxy floors that dissipate the electric static can not only help preserve products, but it can also help prevent life-threatening catastrophes.

Sometime facilites manufacturer sensitive computer boards.  They have small components that react to small amounts of electrical voltage.  But even a small static charge from a body can product more than enough voltage to damage the circuit board.  So in facilities like this, it’s important to have a floor that can dissipate an electrical charge.

Or, some facilities manufacture chemicals or commonly used products that use highly explosive compounds, like powdered aluminum.  If a spark, or any type of electrical discharge goes off around powdered aluminum, you’re in big trouble.  So not only can discharging floors preserve products, they can also save lives.
