2460m2 of Flowshield SL UL was installed in the new plant - in the specified production storage and packing areas. The system includes both an underlay alongside a topcoat of the popular self-smoothing epoxy system Flowshield SL in order to create an attractive, hardwearing and easy to clean finish.
In addition, the 320m2 R&D lab at the Chennai facility required an anti-static finish as the facility deals with spare parts that must remain free from the damaging effects caused by a build-up of electrostatic charge at all times. The solution was to install Flowshield ESD SL as the system has been designed to safely dissipate the build-up of electrostatic charge in sensitive environments.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) refers to the rapid, spontaneous transfer of electrostatic charge induced by a high electrostatic field. Charges can build-up while simply walking across the floor of a processing environment. Without flooring materials equipped with adequate protection combined with appropriate safety footwear, this charge can cause irreversible damage to sensitive components.
