Why EclipseEC rubber flooring trumps other ESD resilient flooring options:

  • Numerous independent studies have confirmed that EclipseEC inhibits static charge generation on people no matter what kind of footwear they have on their feet. This is a very big deal because personnel in mission-critical environments do not wear special static-free shoes; they wear ordinary footwear.

    Static control resilient floors like SD and EC vinyl and epoxy actually generate static on ordinary footwear. Epoxy and vinyl floors perform well when used in combination with static control footwear but not with street shoes. Mission critical personnel don't wear special footwear, so why would you specify a floor that won't prevent static under the conditions it needs to work?

  • Conductivity - aka Ohms resistance - is less important than charge generation. The ESD Association document ANSI/ESD S20.20, the cornerstone standard for static-control programs, no longer includes system resistance as a parameter. The newly revised standard requires qualifying floors based on charge generation measurements on people wearing the types of footwear that will be used in the space.

  • In an ASHRAE study for data center applications EclipseEC rubber flooring demonstrated the lowest charge generation properties of any ESD floor whether the tests were performed with or without static control footwear.

  • Eclipse rubber offers lifetime static-control performance without being overly conductive. With a typical resistance of 1.5 X 10E5 ohms, grounding properties fall into the resistance sweet spot. EC rubber drains charges at a controlled rate and yet still exceeds the gold standard minimum resistance parameters like the former NFPA 99.

  • PVC-free Eclipse rubber is GREENGUARD gold certified.

Chart showing how various materials measure for voltage when someone walks across them. The header text reads “Body Voltage Generating in Combination with a Person per ANSI/ESD STM97.2” The materials included ar StaticWorx Eclipse Rubber, Vinyl A, Vinyl B, Vinyl C, Vinyl D, Vinyl E, Epoxy The text underneath the chart reads “Body Voltage Generation. In controlled environments body voltage must measure below 100 volts to meet the parameters of ANSI/ESD S20.20. Two footnotes are included: 1) Epoxy flooring was tested with conductive footwear. 2) Tests performed by an independent testing company.
Chart labelled ‘Outgassing comparison according to ASTM-E-595 (CVCN)*” The chart shows levels of CVCM measured with different types of flooring, ranging from 0.58 (StaticWorx Eclipse Rubber), to 1.66 (Conductive Vinyl A), 2.282 (Conductive Vinyl B), 2.5 (Conductive Vinyl C), 3.2 (Conductive Vinyl D) and finally to 3.507 (Conductive Vinyl E). Test underneath reads: “* Tests performed by an independent testing company.” And below that: “Definition of CVCM: Collected volatile condensable material—the quantity of outgassed matter from a test specimen that condenses on a collector maintained at a specific constant temperature for a specified time. CVCM is expressed as a percentage of the initial specimen mass and is calculated from the condensate mass determined from the difference in mass of the collector plate before and after test.”

Rubber Flooring Products

EclipseEC Rubber

StaticWorx launched EclipseEC (Electrically Conductive) rubber in 2010 – the industry’s only fault-tolerant, low-charging ESD floor. EclipseEC won the prestigious Seal of Approval from the ESD Journal as the only product suitable for Class-0 ESD (electrostatic discharge) applications. Independent laboratory research has found EC rubber to be the only product that inhibits static generation regardless of footwear. And it was voted a top, money-saving product by Buildings Magazine.

 

EclipseEC Rubber – our flagship, award-winning line of rubber flooring – is often the preferred choice of architects, contractors and facility managers for cleanrooms, labs, and electronics manufacturing and handling facilities, as well as 24/7 operations such as server rooms, hospitals, data and critical call centers, schools, and more.

 

EclipseGF Rubber

With our EclipseGF – Glue Free – EC Rubber, we saw an opportunity to prevent problems with high vapor concrete and to address fast-track construction. EclipseGF rubber use the same high-performance base material as our award-winning EclipseEC rubber tiles and provides all the same benefits–with the added advantage of being glue free and moisture resistant.


Like any resilient flooring material, standard Eclipse rubber requires pre-installation testing of subfloors for vapor, buckets of glue, troweling or spraying, clean-up, curing times, and possible downtime. This can present problems for companies with fast-track projects or those that can’t afford to shut down. With EclipseGF you get a fast, clean installation. And you can bypass vapor testing with EclipseGF.


Architectural SD Rubber

Designed for world class environments, StaticWorx SD is an attractive hammered rubber product, available in four colors that would please the most discerning architect or designer.


Tough, yet visually appealing, StaticWorx SD Rubber flooring is perfect for hospitals, recovery rooms, universities, schools, emergency response centers, labs, conference rooms and anywhere comfort, performance and durability are needed. Static generation is less than 100 volts according to ESD STM 97.2 (tested with conductive shoes).


StatLock Interlocking Rubber

Our StatLock interlocking SD rubber tiles, made from 100% recycled and up to 91% post-consumer rubber, are our greenest ESD floor tile to date. Durable enough for heavy-duty environments, StatLock interlocking rubber, with inherent static-control characteristics, is an excellent choice for temporary or transitional spaces. No need to rely on your landlord to take care of your ESD flooring needs. Simply carry the static-dissipative tiles to your location, zip together quickly and efficiently, then unlock and carry out when you’re finished. Best of all StatLock interlocking ESD rubber provides long wear and exceptional value for people searching for a low cost, high performance static-safe floor.

 
AisleSafe Runners

AisleSafe is the only floor runner and matting on the market that has received The ESD Journal Seal of approval for static-control walking surfaces suitable for class-0 device handling. Attractive and durable, this ESD-safe runner is ideal as a static-free bridge between EPAs ( ESD-protected – or safe – areas.) It can be used as runner, floor mat, or even as permanent flooring material.
