ANTI STATIC FLOORING
EPF is a leading installer of epoxy and urethane anti static flooring, throughout the U.S. We provide a turn-key package including high performance PumaCRETE® materials, installation with our own company crews and warranty. Customers receive the exclusive EPF single source, five year warranty on materials and labor. After completion, EPF performs electrical testing and certification for compliance to industry standards. Our flooring meets the following standards: Dissipative Flooring- ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 and STM compliant. Conductive Flooring meets DOD 4145.26, NFPA99.
With a nationwide USA service network, we are able to provide localized service at all facilities throughout the U.S.
Since we are vertically integrated, we are able to control all aspects of your industrial flooring project. We provide expert concrete floor consulting and specification assistance.
Anti Static Epoxy Flooring Advantages
EPF’s anti static polymer flooring has numerous advantages over anti static vinyl, ESD carpet, ESD rubber flooring and ESD flooring tiles. These include a seamless, durable and abrasion resistant surface, cost effectiveness (low unit life cycle cost), attractive and easy to clean….never requires waxing! Semi-gloss and satin finishes are available.
Since our ESD flooring never needs waxing, this can save at least $1 per year on maintenance costs, compared to tiles and resilient flooring. This can add up to a savings of $10 per sq ft over 10 years!
Anti Static Flooring Materials
EPF provides high performance epoxy & urethane flooring from PumaCRETE Corp.
All of our anti static dissipative and conductive flooring systems are vapor permeable, which help prevent failures due to concrete moisture issues. The typical system includes a primer coat of dual component epoxy primer, and top coat of anti static urethane. Materials are low odor, which minimizes interference with adjacent ongoing operations.
For DIY installation, contact PumaCRETE Corp directly at 857-226-8247 for help with purchasing their materials for self installation. They have detailed installation instructions along with specialty tools & supplies.
For areas where the concrete is heavy damaged, we utilize a urethane mortar resurfacer, called PumaCRETE® 301-SLB flooring. This material is typically applied at 1/8 inch thickness, and restores the concrete to smooth condition. The flooring also handles heavy traffic from power lifts, as well as acting as a vapor mitigation barrier for concrete with high moisture transmission.
EPF’s epoxy and polyurethane anti static flooring systems are the lowest cost, over the long term, and provides an excellent return on investment. Typical installed cost is $3-6 per square foot. Contact us for a customized quotation for your project!
Static Dissipative Floor Electrical Specification
Contract Mfr’s & OEM’s in the electronics sector have implemented the ANSI ESD S20.20-2014. This is an industry specification for an ESD Control Program, used to protect electronic components.
Our epoxy and urethane flooring finishes are compliant with ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 standards for anti static floor coatings. Static dissipative and conductive ranges are also in accordance to values defined in the following test methods:
• EOS/ESD Association ESD STM S7.1-2005 and ANSI/ESD STM 97.1 and STM 97.2
• Body Voltage Generation (BVG) <15 volts with conductive footwear.
• Dissipates a 5000-volt charge to 0 volts in less than 0.1 seconds.
Flooring Surface Prep & Removal
Often the installation of our poured flooring also requires removal of existing flooring materials. These include VCT tiles, rubber flooring, sheet vinyl, epoxy or other flooring materials. With specialized equipment, our team accomplishes this in no time! EPF has invested over 1 million of dollars in specialty equipment for surface prep and application of our flooring. This includes push behind and ride-on diamond grinders and shot blasters. Our crews utilize the most efficient equipment to cost effectively perform your job right. We have special dust collectors for all grinding machines, which collect the dust. If needed, we can even perform a wet surface grind, which eliminates 99.9% airborne dust.
Epoxy Static Control Floor Installation
Our team assesses the condition of the existing floors, including the need for removal of existing floor materials or glue removal. The floor may require repair and filling of cracks, holes, or other special surface prep. These are filled with epoxy paste fillers. Joints can be filled with a 3-component, flexible sealant.
Concrete joints are cleaned out and repaired. Next, an epoxy primer coat is applied to seal the substrate. Second optional coat of epoxy primer provides build thickness. Concrete joints are filled with elastomeric two part polyurea. Finally, a coat of ESD polyurethane provides the electrical pathway. Next, grounding strips are installed onto the floor, with conductive adhesive. These may be connected by EPF or the customer, to the preferred earth ground points.
Clean Room Flooring
EPF has anti static clean room floors. We provide both seamless epoxy and urethane systems. These are non particle shedding, and provide a smooth easy to clean finish, which does not need waxing. Chemical resistant and durable, these will outlast sheet goods and tiles.
