Electrically conductive floors

VIASOL coating systems for ESD & antistatic

The conductive VIASOL coating systems reliably and immediately transport the electro-static charges away from the source; horizontally as well as vertically.

Whenever electric voltage occurs that endangers people or sensitive products such as computer chips, the floors have to play their part in the safety system.

In handling flammable substances in explosion protected areas, a conductive floor layer is absolutely prescribed.

The conductive VIASOL coating systems reliably and immediately transport the electro-static charges away from the source; horizontally as well as vertically.

Universal VIASOL voltex and Universal ESD are tailored to the respectively required voltage ranges and the typically arising loads. Strict monitoring in production ensures an unchanging product quality, which is decisive in that environment.

System information

multi-layered floor coating systems - requirements for conductive floors:

1) explosion protection
2) electro-static protection

Explosion protection

VIASOL UNIVERSAL voltex / VIASOL PERM conductive / VIASOL WHG conductive N and other systems

charges need to be conducted safely and quickly
Directive BGR 132 (DIN EN 1081)
Resistance to ground RE ≤ 108 Ω
(for explosives RE ≤ 106 Ω)

The electrically conductive coating system for explosion-protected zones and all areas where electro-static charges are to be avoided
System thickness approx. 2-4 mm

ESD areas = EPA (Electrostatic Protected Area):

VIASOL UNIVERSAL ESD (EP) / VIASOL UNIFLEX ESD (PU) / VIASOL PERM CONDUCTIVE / ESD and other systems

Charges must be conducted within certain resistance ranges
