Product Features

See the Excelon Static Dissipative Tile collection at ArmstrongFlooring.com

Excelon SDT static dissipative tile is a complete flooring solution designed to control static in most non-explosive manufacturing and working areas. The exclusive four-part system comprised of tile, adhesive, copper grounding strips, and polish, works together to dissipate electrostatic charges, protecting people and preventing damage to expensive equipment.

MATERIAL: A composition of polyvinyl chloride resin, binder, fillers, pigments, and antistatic additive.

PATTERNS AND COLORS: Colors and pattern are dispersed uniformly throughout the thickness of the material. Color pigments are insoluble in water and resistant to cleaning agents and light.

REFERENCE SPECIFICATIONS:
ASTM F 1066 Vinyl Composition Floor Tile,  Class 2 – through pattern Meets requirements for size, thickness, squareness, indentation, impact, dimensional stability and resistance to chemicals.

ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES

  • Installed as a system using the required adhesive, grounding strips and polish, SDT yields the following electrical properties:
    • Resistance: ANSI / ESD-S7.1 and ASTM F-150
    • Point to point and point to ground: 106 to 109 ohms
  • Static Generation: ANSI / ESD STM 97.2 (flooring in combination with footwear and a person)
    • at 40% R.H. with ESD shoes: <10 volts
    • at 12% R.H. with ESD shoes: <10 volts
  • Static Dissipation at 12% R.H.: Flooring in combination with a person wearing dissipative footware:
    • 1000 to 100 volts: 0.2 seconds avg.

*Results for product 3rd party tested when installed as directed with S-202 SDT Adhesive and copper grounding strips; and polished with S-392 Static Dissipative Tile Polish.

**Using the James Machine as described in D2047 and as directed in UL 410 for floor covering materials (FCM) using a leather foot under dry conditions. The application of site-applied floor sealers, polishes and other types of finishes routinely used to maintain resilient flooring materials will change the walking surface and consequently the SCOF value.

Installation Special Precautions and Recommendations:

  • Refer to the SDT (Static Dissipative Tile) Installation System for complete installation recommendations.
  • The SDT Installation System requires the use of copper grounding strips supplied with S-202 Adhesive.
  • If electrical certification of an installation is required, do not perform any maintenance procedures until after that certification has been completed.
  • Use only Armstrong S-392 Static Dissipative Tile Polish on SDT. Refer to the SDT maintenance Procedures for complete maintenance recommendations.
  • Do not install SDT in areas subject to excessive surface water or frequent spills.
  • Do not install over existing resilient flooring.
  • Pattern and Shade/Lot Numbers should match.
