Best ESD Flooring Options for Cleanrooms
Cleanrooms are known for the extraordinary measures used to control particles to ultra-clean ISO standards. Ironically, the static-control flooring in cleanrooms doesn’t always meet industry standards and specifications.
Making sense of electrical standards and specifications takes time. Selecting the right ESD floor for cleanroom applications requires detailed attention to a range of issues from maintenance, durability, ergonomics, safety, and installation procedures, to technical issues—such as how the floor interacts with the footwear people use in the space.
Eclipse EC (electrically conductive) Rubber
Our award-winning flagship rubber flooring material, Staticworx Eclipse Electrically Conductive (EC) Rubber is a uniquely fault-tolerant, static-control flooring product. EclipseEC won the Seal of Approval from the ESD Journal as the only product suitable for Class-0 ESD (electrostatic discharge) applications. Associations, universities, labs, consultants, and clients as diverse as ASHRAE, MIT, Dangelmayer Associates, and the ESD Journal have found that conductive rubber flooring offers the lowest charge generation properties of any type of ESD flooring available today. It was also voted a top, money-saving product by Buildings Magazine.
StaticWorx Eclipse EC (conductive) rubber is ideal for cleanrooms and is the only ESD flooring product certified by the ESD Journal for Class-0 applications.
Charge generation: > 10 volts per STM 97.2
System resistance: 1.0 x 10E6
2 mm thick, available in 24″ x 24″ tile and 4′ x 40′ rolls
Eclipse GF (glue free) rubber
EclipseGF (Glue-Free) conductive rubber has a pre-applied, solvent-free, self-adhesive backing. Installing with dry, seamless tape makes for a quick, easy installation with no messy glue, along with simple maintenance – for the best performance of any resilient ESD flooring.
The preferred choice for almost any environment, EclipseGF rubber offers special benefits for clean rooms and labs, where downtime and contamination can’t be tolerated. It’s also ideal for occupied areas and mission-critical facilities such as server rooms, hospitals, data centers, electronics handling applications, universities, and much more.
Glue-free is hassle-free – for maximum flexibility and convenience. Just roll it on and start walking. Can be applied directly over existing VCT and epoxy.
Thickness: 2 mm
Size: 4′ x 40′ rolls (for cleanroom installations)
