Adhesives for Static Control Flooring

How Conductive Adhesives Work

Conductive adhesives act as a ground plane, providing electrical continuity between every ESD tile in a room. They don't just hold the floor in place; they pull static away form the tile surface because electricity flows to the path of least resistance. When static charges contact the top of the floor, they dissipate through the floor to the conductive adhesive ground plane and on to ground - safely and effectively. Conductive adhesives are the path of least resistance.

Without conductive adhesives, ESD tiles would have no place to discharge unwanted static charges; every tile would be like an isolated island - charges would be stuck on individual tiles with no place to go. Staticworx® conductive adhesives enable an ESD floor to do its job by conducting static electricity back to the earth.

Grounding a Staticworx® floor is straight forward and easy. Our adhesives eliminate the need for expensive copper equipotential grounding grids of the past; the conductive adhesive is linked to ground with copper connector strips. The strips can be attached to electrical conduit, building steel or a dedicated grounding bar. Copper ground connectors are 24" long and are supplied with every Staticworx® flooring shipment. Only one connection is necessary for every 1000 square feet of contiguous ESD flooring.

Staticworx® Adhesives provide a fail Safe Path to Ground. Read more about correct grounding methods for ESD floors and Tile using copper grounding strips .

Replaced by conductive adhesives, expensive copper grids are a thing of the past.

Staticworx® Adhesive Options

Statbond™: - . A solvent free, acrylic adhesive designed for use with any conductive or static dissipative rubber and vinyl floor covering. Statbond™ adhesive creates a permanent conductive bond between rubber or vinyl flooring and the subfloor. Well-suited for use with roll goods or in areas where a strong bond is required. Statbond™ can be used on all grades of concrete on, above or below grade in the absence of moisture as well as suspended approved wood floors (APA.)

  • Excellent conductivity
  • For porous and non-porous surfaces
  • Provides LEED points
  • No mixing required
  • Easy cleanup
  • Exceptional side-to-side stability
  • No odor, no VOC's
  • Permanent bond
  • Ideal for rugged applications
  • Partially used containers can be resealed
  • Meets ANSI/ESD S 20.20 in conjunction with Staticworx® Flooring

GroundTack® - A conductive pressure sensitive adhesive. Creates an electrical ground plane, providing total continuity across an ESD flooring installation. Far superior to expensive conductive tapes, messy wet set black adhesives and complex grounding grids, Staticworx® GroundTack is easy to install and can be walked on immediately. When installed under modular carpet, GroundTack provides an excellent bond and offers the flexibility of a release adhesive. With GroundTack, the adhesive stays tacky and never dries completely; static dissipative carpet tiles are easily lifted and removed for repair, replacement or reuse, without ever even having to put down more adhesive.

For Rubber and Vinyl tile: Under rubber and vinyl, GroundTack provides a permanent conductive bond. GroundTack can be spread over a large area and allowed to dry before installing tiles. No oozing of adhesive into the seams when the floor is rolled. No mess and easy clean-up. For use with ShadowFX ESD carpet tile, AMERIWORX® precision milled vinyl tile and Foundation™ Series vinyl tile.

  • Excellent conductivity
  • Clear adhesive with carbon fiber technology
  • Easy cleanup
  • Easy to Install
  • Provides LEED points
  • Low VOCs
  • No special skills required
  • Releases for easy removal and replacement of tiles
  • Well-suited for use with modular flooring
