Floors for the electronic industry

Reducing the generation of electrostatic charges is the main purpose of control measures in ESD protected areas (EPA). In such areas as electronics assembly, mechatronics and data centres, the right floor covering plays a crucial role. It not only drains electrostatic charges from personnel and equipment, but it also reduces the generation of charges where they occur, at the interface between the shoe soles and the floor.
For this segment, we recommend our Colorex range of static control flooring. There are conductive and static dissipative options along with a collection that is ideal where downtime or sub floor repairs are an issue.

Colorex

Semi-conductors

The challenges of semiconductor size reduction within the nanoscale must be matched by even greater control of micro contamination and static discharge in the manufacturing environment. Colorex is an advanced technical flooring system specifically designed to control static discharge in ESD sensitive areas and is widely used in ESD cleanrooms and manufacturing and assembly environments across the electronics industry.

Electronics assembly

Colorex flooring is suitable for the most demanding of settings within Electronics manufacturing environments. This area presents its own flooring issues, particularly through the combination of demand for cleanroom environment, strict ESD control and the ever increasing recognition of the need to control micro contamination. Forbo’s Colorex high performance floor covering systems are designed for use in both high classification cleanroom as well as non-classified and even semi-industrial areas found within electronics manufacturing. Cut from a homogeneous, solid block of highly compressed material they have a high vinyl content and a well-balanced amount of mineral filler for optimum performance.

Data centres

In a data centre, the risks of ESD and Microcontamination must be controlled. Colorex offers a lifetime conductive warranty assuring optimal ESD performance throughout the life of the product. Colorex’s conductive coating on the chips forms a dense network of tiny black veins. These ‘conductor paths’ enable safe electrostatic discharge through the whole thickness of the tile. Colorex can be used in many applications. It can be installed by fully adhering it directly to a subfloor or, most common in data centre use, by bonding it to a raised access floor panel. It can also be laid as part of a loose lay tile system.
