How do I Know if I'm getting a QUALITY ESD
Tile? It's easy - test it by folding
the tile in two. If it snaps, consider
another tile. Why? Excessive fillers and
plasticizers will make tiles brittle and may
compromise the electrical conductivity that
is required for an ESD tile to dissipate a
static charge. In Fact, MANY popular ESD
tiles use insulative limestone as
their major ingredient. That's right, some
up to 90% limestone! ESD Tiles that use
excessive fillers often require an ESD
Floor finish to meet the latest standards.
Poor tile composition may lead to a mere 5 year warranty on
wear. They may easily break under heavy loads,
and often shrink and pit over a period of
time. Plus, ESD floor finish is difficult
to maintain and will provide inconsistent
electrical conductivity. Why? ESD floor
finish is dependent on the ambient humidity
in the air for its conductivity. So, if an ESD floor finish is REQUIRED
NOT SO with ESD Tiles from United SCP!
Our Tile Selections have been
preselected to handle the bend and break
test while providing outstanding value,
longevity, and esthetics. They don't
require ESD floor finish, will never snap or
break, and have a LIFETIME warranty on wear
AND the electrical conductivity that gives
them superior static control properties.
They are micro edged for a near seamless
appearance and handle compressive loads that make
other tiles fail miserably.
