Eclipse EC Rubber Flooring

EclipseEC Rubber Flooring

EclipseEC is the first ESD floor that is conductive, anti-static, and capable of handling applications where special footwear is not an option. EclipseEC offers the only light-colored, electrically conductive rubber flooring. Static generation is less than 10 volts, according to ESD STM 97.2 (tested with conductive shoes).

  • Easy to maintain
  • Never needs conductive wax
  • Resistant to chemicals and hot solder
  • Reduces explosion risk
  • Slip resistance in compliance with ADA guidelines
  • PVC and phthalate-free
  • Recipient of prestigious ESD Journal Seal of Approval for excellence
  • Indoor Air Quality Certified
  • Chosen by www.buildings.com Magazine as a Top Money-Saving Product

The first rubber ESD flooring material that meets all the electrical parameters of ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007.

Standard ESD rubber flooring will not meet the recommended system resistance limits of ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007. Unfortunately, typical single layer rubber flooring usually provides an electrical resistance that is in the upper spectrum of the range commonly known as static dissipative. This creates a real dilemma for companies trying to stay current or ahead of increasingly demanding ESD standards. According to ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007, the recommended floor and footwear system resistance tested per ESD STM97.1 should measure less than 35 meg ohms (3.5X106). That isn't possible for single layer ESD rubber floors; single ply dissipative rubber lacks the inherent conductivity to meet this parameter.

How do most ESD rubber suppliers meet ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007?

Single ply rubber floors meet ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007 based upon low walking body voltage parameters. If a floor exhibits less than 100 volts of walking body voltage using controlled footwear that floor can theoretically claim compliance with ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007. However, meeting walking body voltage but not system resistance causes severe compliance issues for the quality department during routine certifications and plant audits. Walking body voltage is cumbersome and difficult to measure and monitor and require sophisticated expensive testing methods. It is much easier for owners to test and re-qualify their floors using resistance measuring equipment; anyone can perform resistance tests and the equipment is portable and inexpensive. Walking body voltage is measured using charge plate monitors and should always be evaluated using statistical analysis since there are a number of intervening variables. The Staticworx® EC Series was developed to harmonize with all recommended electrical parameters of ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007 and not just meet the requirements through a loop-hole like walking body voltage. With Staticworx® EC, there is no compromise.

Are you looking for static flooring for a command center, control room, E-9-1-1 dispatcher area or data center? Did you know that EC rubber prevents static in applications where people will be wearing standard shoes?

Vinyl interlocking floors generate static unless they are used with special conductive shoes. Rubber is the only static resistant flooring that works regardless of footwear. MIT testing recently demonstrated that rubber is the only static resistant flooring that works regardless of footwear.

Will Staticworx® EC reduce walking body voltage on people?

Staticworx® EC will prevent walking body voltages above 10 volts when used in conjunction with controlled footwear - regardless of relative humidity.

Test results from MIT Lincoln Laboratories demonstrate that a static conductive rubber (not static dissipative) can significantly inhibit the accumulation of static electricity on people, regardless of footwear.

But, Staticworx® EC also prevents significant accumulation of static even in situations where grounded footwear is forgotten or not used. Ask us for the independent test reports about Staticworx® EC and take the time to read the study that lead to the development of the first fault tolerant ESD flooring material.

Two layer vulcanized construction combines the static control advantages of conductive flooring with ergonomic and safety advantages of rubber flooring.

  • Designed for ANSI/ESD S20.20 and class 0 ESD flooring applications.
  • Unlike SD rubber, Eclipse will never lose its ability to dissipate static
  • Lifetime electrical resistance. Resistance to ground is typically in the 100,000 - < 1,000,000 ohm range.
  • Walking body voltage with heel straps is less than 10 volts at extremely low relative humidity (12%).
  • Walking body voltage with ordinary footwear is < 0.5 kV
  • Available in tiles or sheet goods. Can be installed on access floors
  • Rated best flooring for Cleanrooms.
  • Maintenance cost is half the cost of vinyl
  • No PVC, Halogen-free

Typical static dissipative rubber usually has electrical properties at or above the upper limit of resistance recommended in ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007. Vulcanized construction of Staticworx® EC provides a perfect balance between conductivity and safety.

Staticworx rubber sheet floors can be installed with a premium eco spray-on adhesive.
