ESD and cleanroom flooring

Colorex EC

Colorex EC is an electrostatic conductive floor covering in tile format with permanent ESD properties. Because of the dense network of conductive veins, static charges flow easily through the floor to earth. Colorex EC tiles can withstand the most demanding conditions and offer a suitable solution for highly sensitive areas such as cleanrooms and for demanding production sites in the electronics, life sciences and manufacturing industry.

    Colorex EC is an electrostatic conductive flooring tile with permanent 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.

About Colorex EC

About Colorex EC

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

Reducing the generation of electrostatic charges is the main purpose of control measures in 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 ESD shoes

Application areas:
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

Colorex glued 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

About LRV
In architecture, Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is a measure of the percentage of visible and usable light that is reflected from a surface when illuminated by a light source. The LRV can be linked to a number of decisions on which a colour can be chosen. The approximate LRV of a colour indicates the amount of visible light that a colour will reflect. Black has a light reflectance value of 0% and absorbs all light. White has a light reflectance value of 100% and keeps a building light and cool. It also links to the use of electricity where lighter colours need less lighting, which is a direct saving for the environment. All Forbo products carry a light reflection value, which can be found in the text next to the enlargement of the tabletop.

About NCS
NCS colour coding describes the colour of any material. With numeric colour codes, so called NCS Notations, such as NCS S 1080-Y70R, any colour can be described precisely. NCS has defined 1950 standardised colours at every 10th step of the colour space to represent the entire colour space. Each notation's colour sample is visually identical to any other colour sample of the same notation, whether it is a standardised colour or a colour in between the 1950 standard colours. This way you can find matching flooring colours with other coloured items in a room.

The 'Natural Colour System' NCS has been developped in order to indentify the colour value, its intensity and hue for a product. By using the NCS maesurement system, colours and colour groups can be identified and matched regardless of the material that has been used. In this way colour coordinates for different aspects of the interior of a building can be determined. All Forbo Flooring products carry an NCS code, which can be found next to the enlargement of the tabletop and in our downloadcenter.

Colorex floorcare

Colorex tiles offer you high mechanical and wear resistance with no need for coatings or surface treatments. The tiles can be 100% repaired and restored, for example:
- Burns can be fully removed
- Damage can be seamless repaired
- Suborns stains like iodine can be fully removed
- Heavy soiling can by fully cleaned
