In a properly designed flooring material, static-control properties should last as long as the floor itself. Most conductive and static-dissipative floors are manufactured using elemental conductive or dissipative materials like carbon, graphite and silver. As long as these additives are bonded to the flooring in adequate concentration, they should provide static dissipation forever.
Some ESD flooring materials lose their ability to eliminate static because of outside influences like maintenance. Dirt and debris can insulate a static-control floor, for example, causing performance failure. ESD vinyl tile will become a static generator if it is polished with generic floor waxes.
With Staticworx ESD flooring, you never have to choose between performance and aesthetics. Our beautiful, high quality ESD carpet tile, vinyl, EC rubber tile and sheet goods, and ESD epoxy floors are as beautiful as they are functional.
