Dur-A-Flex Inc. has expanded its Electro-Static Dissipative floor coating line with the introduction of Armor-Stat ESD.
Armor-Stat is designed to dissipate the static charge caused by the movement of people and high-speed manufacturing and assembly equipment. The coating system can ground out static charges and prevent static events from occurring, Dur-A-Flex says.
The three-step, epoxy-urethane ESD system is designed to provide a durable, seamless, non-porous finish with superior abrasion, UV and chemical resistance and long wear.
Applications include packaging and electronic manufacturing plants; automated and electronic assembly areas; storage areas, clean rooms and AGV warehouses.
