In 2015 Magnesite Specialties, Inc. www.magnesitespecialties.com out of San Diego, CA installed the Dex-O-Tex Electro-Flor HS ESD Flooring system for Palomar Technologies in Carlsbad, CA.

Dex-O-Tex Electro-Flor HS SD is a static dissipative ESD floor system which can prevent sensitive electronic components from being damaged by electrostatic discharge.

The Dex-O-Tex Electro-Flor HS ESD Flooring is a high-solids, fluid applied floor system which is static dissipative, designed for use in environments containing components sensitive to static shock.

This facility in Carlsbad, CA is used to manufacture sensitive electronic parts. These electronic components must be handled by  people are which point they are vulnerable to damage from static shock.

Traditional floor coverings and electronic components are sensitive to moisture and humidity. Dex-O-Tex Electro-Flor HS Epoxy ESD Flooring can be used with Dex-O-Tex Vapor-Control Primer to avoid problems caused by excessive moisture and humidity in the concrete slab.

It is highly recommended to utilize a moisture control system to eliminate the possible damage caused by moisture in the concrete slab.

The high solid content allows Dex-O-Tex Electro-Flor HS ESD Flooring to be a high build system, providing a nice gloss finish, even over rough concrete surfaces. A high solid, high build system means a thicker epoxy floor coating system which translates to a better looking, more durable floor coating.

Electrostatic dissipative ESD flooring is not enough to eliminate electrostatic discharge alone, it must be combined with a complete program and culture of electrostatic discharge prevention.
