Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can create a build-up of static electricity. Static electricity can create havoc in environments with sensitive equipment such as electronics manufacturing or a tech centre. Antistatic protection is essential where anything computerised is used. Reepol offers specialist solutions engineered for use where static control is required.
The features of our antistatic coatings, which are a seamless alternative to tile or vinyl flooring, include the dispersion of static electricity, very high chemical resistance, ease of maintenance, improved wear, and freedom from dust. It is recommended that these static dissipative coatings be applied in tandem with Reeprime CPS900 conductive primer. Reeprime CPS900 is a 2-part water dispersed epoxy primer and sealer. It comes in gun metal grey.
The cementitious substrate needs to be sound and sufficiently compressive (Min 25/Nmm2). They also need to be dry and free of all contaminants. The surface should be prepared mechanically to provide an open textured, fine gripping surface. Surface defects must be fully exposed. All dust, loose, and friable material must be complete removed.
Once the primer is installed, the waiting time depends on the temperature. The lower the temperature, the longer the waiting time. At 10ºC, the minimum waiting time is 48 hours and the maximum waiting time is 7 days. At 20ºC, the minimum is 15 hours and the maximum is 5 days.
Reeflor EL300 A/S, ReecoteE014 A/S, ReecoteE015 A/S, and ReecoteE017 A/S are recommended systems for an antistatic surface treatment for construction in an area where sustainability, performance, and easy cleaning are also factors. Here’s a little more information on the differences among the properties of these flooring systems. Reeflor EL300 A/S is a blend of epoxy resins, curing agents and selected fine aggregates.
Reeflor EL300 A/S is a static dissipative floor, suitable for use in areas where a build up of static electricity may lead to damage of sensitive electrical equipment or explosion of dust or solvents. It provides a seamless, hygienic, hard wearing finish with excellent resistance to heavy traffic.
Reecote EC014 A/S is a high build solvent based coating best for areas where a high build, hard wearing, hygienic antistatic floor coating is required. When cured, this material flooring provides resistance to a wide range of chemicals and industrial traffic. It is excellent for locations such as warehouses, light industrial factories, garages, and workshops. It’s based on a blend of epoxy resins, curing agents, mineral fillers and solvent.
Reecote EC015 A/S is an economical solvent-free protection for concrete surfaces in a wide variety of locations such as dairies, abattoirs, food preparation areas and factories. It is a 2-part water dispersed epoxy coating which can be thinned with water. Odour free, it can be applied onto damp surfaces.
Reecote EC017 A/S is ideal for use where a high build, hard wearing hygienic, anti static floor coating is required. It is hard-wearing and this makes it a good choice in light/heavy industrial areas, such as garage service bays and factory gangways. It is based on a blend of epoxy resins, curing agents and mineral fillers, which when mixed together provide a low odour, solvent free, high build epoxy coating system.
As for colours, well the whole range is available. Our anti static floor paint can be colour matched to all the colours of the BS4800, Pantone, or RAL colour charts.
Whatever your primary specification is, whether it is hygiene to meet the demands of healthcare facilities, safety in the sports arena, rooms where the acoustic level needs to be controlled, or electronic protection is paramount, Reepol has the ability to provide the solution.
