FAQ: Do I need to apply special antistatic sprays after the floor is installed?

No. A floor should never acquire its electrical conductivity from topical sprays or floor finishes. Sprays and floor finishes wear off. It is impossible to detect their deterioration in performance without testing the resistance of the coating on a routine basis using an ANSI/ESD test method involving a special ohm meter and NFPA probes.
