Antistatic PVC

Antistatic PVC,

Antistatic PVC is a type of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that has been treated with antistatic agents to reduce the effects of static electricity. Static electricity is a phenomenon that occurs when two objects with different electric potentials come into contact or close proximity, and a sudden flow of electric current occurs between them. Static electricity can cause damage to electronic devices, attract dust and contaminants, and create safety hazards such as fire or explosion.

Antistatic PVC is used to make flooring for various applications, such as electronic manufacturing, data centers, clean rooms, and medical facilities. Antistatic PVC prevents the accumulation and discharge of static charge on the surface and in the air, and provides a safe and comfortable work environment.

To install antistatic PVC, the following steps are recommended:

• Prepare the subfloor by cleaning, leveling, and priming it. The subfloor should be dry, smooth, and free of cracks, holes, or bumps.
• Install copper grounding strips under the antistatic PVC at a frequency of one strip for every 1000 sq. ft. of floor space. The copper strips should be in contact with a grounding system, such as a grounding rod or a conductive subfloor. The copper strips provide better conductivity and grounding for the antistatic PVC.
• Apply conductive adhesive on the subfloor and the back of the antistatic PVC. The conductive adhesive is a special glue that has electrically conductive properties. It helps to bond the antistatic PVC to the subfloor and to create a low-resistance path for the static charge to dissipate.
• Lay the antistatic PVC on the subfloor and press it firmly. Make sure there are no air bubbles, wrinkles, or gaps between the antistatic PVC and the subfloor. Cut the excess material and trim the edges. ⁵

• Test the resistance and conductivity of the antistatic PVC using a meter or a tester. The resistance and conductivity should be within the specified range for the antistatic PVC product. If not, check the installation and make adjustments as needed.
