Sustainability

Sustainability

We constantly strive to produce sustainable flooring systems that create better environments everywhere. At the same time we help take care of the natural environment through our commitment to sustainable development, responsible raw material procurement and manufacturing processes. For example our Colorex collection contains 15% post industrial recycled content, is manufactured using 100% green electricity and is REACH compliant..

How it's made
• Of all the electricity we buy, 100% comes from renewable sources. This means all our vinyl production sites, including our Colorex plant, are part of an effective environmental management system and achieve ISO14001 certification

• Colorex contains 15% post industrial recycled content.

How it performs
• The low plasticiser content in Colorex ensures low emissions and outgassing.

• The surface of Colorex can be fully repaired extending the useful life of the product.

The Colorex Collection

The Colorex Collection

Colorex is available with three levels of conductivity - High performance (EC range), Performance (SD range) and Standard.

There is also a choice of fitting as Colorex can be installed by fully adhering it directly to a subfloor or by bonding it to a raised access floor panel. It can also be laid as part of a loose lay tile system. The loose lay version additionally has an anti static (Basic plus) and slip resistant (R11 plus) version to complete the high tech solutions offer.

High performance
With Colorex EC and Colorex EC Plus, static charges flow easily through the dense network of tiny conductive veins that run through the whole thickness of the tile. The charge is transmitted via the conductive adhesive and securely discharged to earth via the copper strip. It’s a completely natural system that needs no volatile chemical anti-static additives to aid conductivity. The conductivity is not affected by changes in temperature or humidity

Performance
Colorex SD enables safe electrostatic discharge through the whole thickness of the tile via the black conductive veins.

Standard
Colorex Basic plus is a loose lay floor system with a Colorex surface with limited conductive properties. This range provides all the benefits of Colorex such as a high density, repairable and stain resistance with the benefit of a heavy duty loose lay tile.

Product construction

We start where others stop

Colorex is only available in tile format as this enables quicker installation, especially in small and medium areas or rooms with irregular shapes. The tile format also ensures less wastage than sheet, making it the environmentally preferable option.

As Colorex also has very low plasticiser content there’s no need to worry about emissions or shrinkage and the corresponding diminishing of conductive properties. Our production process produces a material of superior and consistent quality with an extremely high and uniform compression. The easy-clean surface is pore free, making it suitable for the most stringent hygiene requirements, right up to certified cleanrooms.

Colorex construction
Colorex provides all the features normally associated with ESD sheet product but with the additional benefits associated with tile format such as reduced waste and ease of installation. ESD sheet products require a high plasticiser content which can result in out-gassing. In contrast, Colorex tiles have a small percentage of plasticiser content and a result, very low out-gassing.

Invisible repairs

Deep scratches and other serious damage can be repaired by hot welding. A small strip of Colorex of the same colour should be welded directly into the damage using a hand welding machine. After the excess material has been trimmed off, the repaired spot can be restored to a good-as new condition by sanding and dry polishing.

Norms & Certifications

Norms & Certifications

In order to provide our customers with peace of mind, we measure and report the conductivity of each production batch. As a result of this quality control procedure, we establish a measurement report showing the distribution of conductivity values within a single batch. These reports are available to the customer upon request.

ISO standards and cGMP regulations for air purity require you to comply by presenting consistent results that can be verified on a regular basis.. Ideal for cleanrooms and these kinds of environments, Colorex satisfies the strictest requirements for particle release behaviour, helping to reduce any threat of contamination. What’s more, following a comprehensive programme of testing, its suitability in cleanroom applications has been certified by the renowned Fraunhofer IPA Institute in Germany..

The homogeneous structure of Colorex EC/SD with its dense network of conductive veins ensures a guarantee for lifetime conductivity. Performance is permanent and consistent, independent from air humidity or temperature conditions

In conjunction with appropriate ESD footwear, Colorex EC is fully compliant with the personnel grounding requirements specified in the IEC 61340-5-1 and ANSI/ESD S20.20 standards for ESD Protected Areas (EPA):
- System resistance Person / Footwear / Flooring System < 35 MOhm
- Body Voltage < 100V
