Anti Static Floor Paints

Anti Static Floor Paint

What is Anti Static Floor Paint?

Anti static floor paint is a specialist coating, typically used in environments where static electricity can build up naturally from the equipment being used and activities being undertaken. Industries such as telecoms, electronics, pharmaceuticals and aerospace are all likely candidates when it comes to needing anti static features in epoxy floor coatings.

How does Anti Static floor paint work?

Whether it is day to day movement of people and vehicles or repetitive movement of shop-floor machinery this movement will give rise to static electricity. 

Anti-static epoxy floor paints work by providing a dissipative coating, to prevent the build-up of static charge on the surface of floors. They help prevent electrostatic discharge which is the pulse of static electricity that happens when a charged person or surface comes into contact with another object. This electrostatic discharge is what creates the ‘shock’ or the ‘spark’ associated with static electricity.

Although the ‘shock is generally harmless to humans there are environments where this build-up of electrostatic discharge can be a threat to chemical materials and sensitive electronic equipment. Anti-static floor coatings can help provide a safe working environment for staff and visitors, capturing these charges and grounding them before they create a reaction.

At CPRL our epoxy coating system includes an anti-static primer, followed by the anti-static floor paint application. The system is well used across a number of industries, is cost-effective, durable and safe and has excellent electrical conductivity properties.

  • CPR 806 – Anti-Static Floor Paint – Epoxy HB is an Epoxy-based coating system suitable for use in areas where the resistance of less than 108 ohms is required as a measure to control static electricity. The material is supplied as a two-pack system, comprising pre-weighed amounts of BASE and CURING AGENT. After mixing together, an easily applied chemical and abrasion resistant finish is produced which is hygienic and easy to clean. CPR 806 is applied over a conductive primer, CPR 807 – Anti-Static Concrete Primer
  • CPR 807 – Anti-Static Concrete Primer is a two-pack, water-dispersible Epoxy-based conductive primer/undercoat, specially formulated to act in conjunction with CPR 806 – Anti-Static Floor Paint – Epoxy HB. The combined system prevents the build-up of static electricity. The Primer is non-flammable and solvent-free as well as being of low odour. The material may be applied directly to concrete, or to surfaces previously primed with CPR 807. The primer also has excellent adhesion to concrete substrates.
