ESD Zemin Kaplama / ESD Flooring

ESD flooring is preferred over other flooring methods when it is necessary to provide a floor with jointless surfaces as well as high chemical resistance and decorative properties. ESD flooring is mostly used in electronics and telecommunications industries, automotive industries, pharmaceutical factories, aerospace industries, operating rooms, computer rooms, etc.

To prepare a high performance coat, the preparation of a good substrate is essential. The surface of the concrete to be coated must be hard, stable and free of dust and barrier materials such as paint, lime, coatings, plaster, curing agents and other adhesive residues.

ESD Floor Covering Method

A suitable degreaser is first used to remove varnish, wax, grease, oil and similar contaminants prior to mechanical preparation. Contaminated concrete surfaces are prepared mechanically by awning, scraping, grinding or sandblasting equipment. And it is prepared in accordance with strong, solid concrete by mechanical methods. Dust and dirt residues are removed using vacuum equipment.

ESD Flooring Application Methods

Surface Preparation;

All surfaces must be dry (maximum 5% moisture content), clean, firm and loose. Surface grinders and sandblasting are used to prepare the surface; Before applying the primer, the surface should be properly cleaned and dust free.

Product Preparation;

Prior to mixing the primer contents together, pre-mixing is mandatory. The contents are mixed slowly for at least 4 minutes using a slow speed drill and paddle. Then the primer is applied to the dry brush surface with 0.2 ~ 0.25 Kg/m² Brush or Roller.

Copper Tape Laying;

A copper strip of the required width and thickness is laid. The wax paper is removed first and the sticky side of the copper strip is kept open. The self-adhesive copper strip is adhered to the clean primed surface at a distance of 1 to 4 meters from each other lengthwise and in width.

The perimeter is attached to the walls near the self-adhesive copper strip at a distance of 15 cm from the walls. At either end of the room, the copper strip must be extended for the ground connection.

Base Floor;

It is a three-component self-leveling system in natural black. Base coat should be applied after the primer has dried (usually 6 – 8 hours after the primer application).

Final Floor;

Topcoat is a three-component self-leveling system. A wide range of colors is available for this and the Technical department should be contacted to select the most suitable color for a particular environment. The top coat is applied immediately after the base coat has dried. An interval of at least 12 hours should be left for the application of the topcoat.

It is recommended to roughen the dried base coat surface using sandpaper for better adhesion of the topcoat with the base coat. Before applying the top coat, the surface must be cleaned and it must be ensured that the surface is free of dust particles. The mixing and application method for topcoat and basecoat is equally common to a normal self-leveling system.
