ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTIVE FLOORS TO PROTECT PEOPLE AND PRODUCTS

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.

VIASOL voltex and 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
3) protection of people

VIASOLVOLTEX

1) explosion protection:  
charges need to be conducted safely and quickly
Directive BGR 132 (DIN EN 1081)
Resistance to ground RE ≤ 108 Ω
(for expllosives 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

VIASOLESD EP  / VIASOLESD PU

2) ESD areas: Charges must be conducted within certain resistance ranges
DIN EN 61340-5-1 ((replaces DIN EN 100 015)
Resistance to ground RE < 109 Ω oder
floor as primary grounding measure
System resistance (human/shoe/floor)
