ESD and AS coatings minimise the risks to humans and machines

Electrostatic charging and discharging occur almost everywhere in everyday life (for example when working at a desk, walking across a carpet, or picking up a plastic bag). Even brief contact between two bodies creates an electrostatic charge, which can discharge again upon contact with another body.

This phenomenon can damage electrostatically sensitive components, such as micro electronics, as these are becoming increasingly delicate nowadays and are therefore more susceptible to ESD damage. Often, even the smallest discharges are sufficient to cause malfunctions or complete failure of the components. However, this often occurs only when using the final product, which results incost-intensive downtime or product recalls.

Meanwhile, explosive media or chemicals also pose amajor problem, as they can cause fires, explosions or financial losses due to sparking.

Preventing such damage is an absolute priority, because the potential cost of this damage justifies any effort needed. The high-quality ESD and AS coatings from Remmers minimise these dangers significantly.


Prevention and protection with Remmers floor systems

Floor systems can be protected from static electricity intwo ways: firstly by preventing the floor from becomingcharged, and secondly by ensuring controlled discharge.

Our floor systems make a significant contribution to protecting people and products from the effects of uncontrolled electrostatic discharge.

We provide individual system solutions for every application. Additional properties and requirements, suchas slip resistance, cleanability, cleanroom requirements or mechanical and chemical resistance also pose no problem for our systems.

Differences between ESD-compliant and conductive floor coatings


ESD (Electrostatic discharge)

Reliably prevents the charging of persons, and quickly and safely conducts the electrostatic charge to an earthing point, eliminating the possibility of damage to electrical components. This primary requirement (< 100 V) for ESD coatings differs from that of conventional conductive coatings.

AS (antistatic)

Reliably prevents the charging of persons, and quickly and safely conducts this electrostatic charge to an earthing point, eliminating the possibility that any ignitable mixtures can be ignited. The primary requirement here is the resistance to earth.
