Features

Durable

The urethane top coat is more durable than epoxy coatings, resistant to scratches and scuffing, with tensile strength that exceeds 6,000 pounds.

Attractive

GroundWorx Ultra comes with an attractive, no-wax semi-gloss finish. The urethane top coat resists yellowing – the discoloration that occurs over time with regular epoxy floors. GroundWorx Ultra is available in a variety of colors, including a near white – with custom color-matching for larger projects.

Easy to Install

GroundWorx Ultra is quick and easy to apply. Similar to regular floor coatings, the two-layer installation consists of 100% solids epoxy primer and conductive top coat, with no messy black middle layer. GX Ultra can be applied over most subfloors, including wood, VCT, existing coatings and concrete.

Meets ANSI/ESD Guidelines for EPA Protected Areas

GroundWorx Basics offers permanent conductivity and is fully compliant with all recommended guidelines for static-control flooring in an ESD-Protected Area per ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014.

Low COST. high value

With a material cost < $2 per square foot (< $2.50 with an elevated moisture primer), GroundWorx Ultra gives you a strong, highly durable ESD floor, with optimal ESD performance, at a budget friendly price.

Performance

A Generation 3 ESD coating, GX Ultra’s conductive top coat provides consistent ESD properties throughout the space.

GX Ultra can be manufactured in the conductive (EC) range (<10E6 ohms) or static-dissipative (SD) range (10E6 – 10E9 ohms).

Unlike most epoxy coatings, GroundWorx Ultra is a low static generating floor, with walking body voltage < 15V.

Application and Maintenance

surface preparation

Remove dirt, grease, oil and other contaminates by scrubbing with detergent and rinsing with clean water. Shot blasting or diamond grinding is the preferred method of preparation for concrete surfaces.

Preparing Previously Coated Floors

If the floor has been previously coated, clean a small area, rough up with a screen disk using an 80-100 grit screen, and then apply sealer to test for adhesion, lifting, etc. Any areas of the existing coating that display poor adhesion should be stripped. Wash the stripped areas, acid etch, and rinse thoroughly. Allow the floor to dry.

Application

See written installation instructions for detail.

Maintenance

Regularly sweep to avoid retention of dirt and grime which can dull the finish. Clean the floor using StaticWorx ScrubWorx pH-neutral ESD floor cleaner. ScrubWorx can be applied using a soft microfiber mop or an auto-scrubber with white cleaning pads.
