Electronics Manufacturing and Repair

Electronics Manufacturing Flooring

These divisions of the electronics industry are the backbone of the ESD market. Users vary from small bench-top assembly manufacturing to fully-automated manufacturing facilities that use Surface Mount Technology (SMT) and Wave Solder equipment. Often, manufacturing volumes are high and production is 24/7. Failures due to ESD events can be devastating. Having a reliable ESD Protected Area (EPA) is critical and often required by the end-users of the products being made.

The most common standard used to implement an EPA and ESD control program in these environments is the ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 along with its accompanying guidance document, ESD TR53. As electronics get smaller, their sensitivity to ESD damage increases. This creates an added focus on controlling ESD. Many manufacturers create ESD programs that are even stricter than these standards due to the sensitivity of the devices being made. StaticStop has the products, expertise, and knowledge to provide the right flooring solution at the best value to meet these stringent EPA requirements.

StaticStop products frequently used in these environments include:

FreeStyle ESD Interlocking

FreeStyle CVT Glue-Down

Conductive vinyl is the most often 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 with minimal disruption to sensitive operations. Quick installation saves time and money, and it 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 needed to handle wear from things like heavy fork trucks, vehicle traffic, or high-impact test areas. The SelecTile ESD is built specifically for 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, highly durable epoxy floor coating built for demanding and high-traffic areas that also require a gloss finish.
