Staticworx vs Armstrong ESD Vinyl Tile

Independent laboratory testing has proven StaticWorx solid vinyl tile to be among
the top-performing static-control flooring solutions on the market.

ESD vinyl tiles are not all alike. From performance to durability, versatility to cost—differences abound. Our point-by-point chart shows the differences between StaticWorx Solid Vinyl Tile (SVT) and Armstrong Static Dissipative Vinyl Composition Tile (SDT/VCT). Which would you trust in your critical environment?

StaticWorxArmstrong
Permanent Static ProtectionConductive elements—embedded in StaticWorx
Solid Vinyl Tile during manufacturing—provide
permanent static protection. No waxes or
additives are ever needed.
Armstrong’s static-dissipative tile gains its static-control
properties from a topically applied ESD polish. The ESD
polish provides short-term static control. To be sure it’s
still in spec, the floor must be tested regularly after
maintenance.
Lifetime WarrantyStaticWorx guarantees ESD protection for as long
as you have your floor.
Armstrong has a limited 5-year warranty. The warranty
excludes ESD failure after the polish wears off.
Performance & VersatilityStaticWorx meets all the requirements of
ANSI/ESD S20.20. Our SVT meets ClassZero specs
and is ideal for manufacturing, handling, labs,
and R&D.
Without regular application of Armstrong ESD wax,
Armstrong SDT does not meet ANSI S20.20 and should
not be used in cleanrooms or ultra-sensitive
applications.
Maintenance & AestheticsStaticWorx’s Solid Vinyl Tile does not require wax
or polish and can be dry-buffed to a high,
hospital-like shine.
To maintain its static-control properties, Armstrong’s
Vinyl Composition Tile requires three coats of polish
after installation and must be waxed regularly. It cannot
be dry-buffed.
Durability & FlexibilityStaticWorx tiles are tough but flexible. Our SVT
tile can withstand heavy loads and won’t crack
under pressure. The load limit for StaticWorx tile
is 2500 psi.
Armstrong’s tiles are brittle, with a load limit of only
75psi. Because they easily crack, they cannot be used
under machinery.
CostBecause it requires only dry-buffing, maintaining
StaticWorx SVT is cost-effective and easy.
Armstrong Vinyl Composition Tile must be periodically
waxed with a special ESD polish. Cost is $1.50 per
foot/year.
