Aerospace and Defense
Electronics in the Aerospace and Defense industries are only becoming more sophisticated, and as a result, face challenging demands in the environments in which they are utilized. Making these products in a properly designed ESD Protected Area (EPA) is critical.
The most common standard used to implement an EPA or ESD control program in these environments is the ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014, along with its accompanying guidance document, ESD TR53. Many aerospace and defense facilities create ESD programs that are even more strict than these standards due to the sensitivity of the devices made and the need for the products to have high reliability in the field. StaticStop has the items, expertise, and knowledge to provide the right flooring solution at the best value to meet stringent EPA requirements.
StaticStop products frequently used in these environments include:
|FreeStyle ESD Interlocking
FreeStyle CVT Glue-Down
|Conductive vinyl is the most commonly used material in these settings, as it provides a surface that maintains well with an attractive finish. All of StaticStop’s FreeStyle and FreeStyle CVT products exceed the requirements of ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 for both electrical resistance (ASTM/ESD S97.1) and charge generation (ASTM/ESD S97.2). These interlocking products also have easy installation. The simple installation process results in minimal disruption to sensitive operations – this saves time and money, and prevents potential damage to equipment.|
|SelecTile ESD||This industrial-grade ESD flooring solution is built to take a beating. In some areas of an aerospace or defense manufacturing facility, an extra-durable surface is required to handle wear from things like heavy fork trucks, vehicle traffic, or high-impact test areas. The SelecTile ESD is built specifically to withstand this type of abuse.|
|EpoxyStyle ESD||StaticStop’s two-part epoxy floor coating is a relatively inexpensive solution for areas that need reliable static control. It’s typically used in more open areas and warehouses. Our High-Build EpoxyStyle is a multi-layer, very durable epoxy floor coating that is built for demanding areas with high traffic that also require a gloss finish.|
|LowVolt ESD Rubber Sheet and Tile||Rubber flooring is often a good choice in laboratories. It maintains well, has a nice foot-feel, and has lower tribocharging characteristics when it is walked on without ESD footwear – which is ideal for uncontrolled areas.|
