Static Control & Cleanroom

Colorex EC

Colorex EC is perfect for IT-rooms, laboratories and ISO standard cleanrooms. Satisfying the strictest requirements for particle release behaviour, Colorex EC helps to reduce any threat of contamination.

The main aim of control measures in electrostatic discharge (ESD) protected areas (EPA) is to reduce generation of electrostatic charges. In areas like operating theatres, electronics assembly and data centres it is essential to have an optimum floor covering. Not only does Colorex EC drain electrostatic charges from equipment and personnel, but it also reduces the charge generation where it occurs, at the interface between the floor and shoe soles

    Colorex EC

    Colorex EC is an electrostatic conductive flooring tile with permanent electrostatic discharge (ESD) properties throughout it's life, regardless the humidity level of the area. Because of the dense of network of conductive veins, static charges flow easily through the floor to earth.

    Colorex EC can withstand and control most demanding conditions and offers a suitable solution for highly sensitive areas such as cleanrooms and for demanding production sites in the electronics, life sciences and manufacturing industry.

About Colorex EC

About Colorex EC

Colorex EC is an electrostatic conductive floor covering in tile format with permanent electrostatic discharge (ESD) properties, regardless the humidity level of the area.

Reducing the generation of electrostatic charges is the main purpose of control measures in electrostatic discharge (ESD) protected areas (EPA). In such areas like electronics assembly, life sciences and data centres the right floor covering plays a crucial role. It does not only drain electrostatic charges from personnel and equipment, but it also reduces the generation of charges there where they occur, at the interface between the shoe soles and the floor.

Colorex EC
With Colorex EC, 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

Functionality:
Permanently conductive

Description:
Permanently conductive floor, connection between tiles through conductive adhesive and connected to earth through copper strip. Compliant to IEC 61340-4-5 with appropriate electrostatic discharge (ESD) shoes.

Application areas:
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) facilities, cleanrooms, pharmaceutical laboratories, production sites (electronics, manufacturing, life sciences) and operating theatres. Colorex EC satisfies the strictest requirements for particle release behaviour, helping to reduce any threat of contamination.

Glued construction

Product construction

The Colorex collection can be used in many different application areas, because of the different systems and the different levels of conductivity that are offered.

One of the options is to glue Colorex during the installation:
1. directly adhering it to a subfloor
2. bonding it to a raised access floor panel.

When conductive or dissipative properties are required, the connection between the tiles is assured by the conductive adhesive between the tiles and by the copper strip to the earthing point. If Colorex is installed using this process, the static charges are drained to earth via the earthing point.

The Colorex system that can be glued is available in 2 different tile products with ESD properties:
Colorex SD - static dissipative tiles of 61,5 x 61,5 cm
• Colorex EC - electrostatic conductive tiles of 61,5 x 61,5 cm
