Static electricity is part of our daily lives. It manifests itself, for example, with the typical sparks on the finger when touching a metal doorknob. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause damage or malfunction, especially in integrated circuits, measuring devices, servers…
Advanced Smart Card is a micro-chip manufacturer based in Cairo, Egypt. They contacted us, looking for a vinyl conductive floor that would allow the evacuation of electrostatic charges towards earth within their 4000sqm facilities.

After applying a self-leveling compound to the ceramic tiles, they installed the Conducta tiles by gluing them with a conductive adhesive. They had previously installed a copper tape to allow the discharge of electrostatic charges to earth (must be taken care of by a professional team).

In order to ensure good watertightness and stability of the Conducta conductive tiles, the joints were heat-sealed with a PVC rod (better known as hot welding).

The advantages of Conducta conductive vinyl tiles are their great resistance to pedestrian traffic and their easy cleaning as they have a smooth surface. Conducta ESD vinyl flooring is installed in server rooms, electronic component factories, rooms at risk of explosion, but also in operating rooms.
