A type of paint, like GroundWorx Basics, made with conductive additives is sometimes called antistatic floor paint. Like antistatic vinyl, antistatic floor paint is a misnomer. The paint creates a path to ground – in other words, it grounds people walking on its surface – preventing static from building as people walk, but unless everyone walking on its surface wears special ESD footwear, paint is not antistatic.
