Conductive Acrylic Floor Coating
GroundWorx EC combines permanent conductivity, durability and value for applications requiring an inexpensive, easily installed ESD floor coating.
Despite the low cost, GroundWorx EC meets or exceeds all the recommended guidelines for static control flooring in ANSI/ESD S20.20. GroundWorx EC ESD floors are durable, attractive and they can be applied over most flooring materials including concrete, wood and old tile. The most impressive aspect of GroundWorx EC is the ease of application. It's as simple to install as conductive acrylic paint but it also provides the durability you expect from permanent ESD floors.
Application and Maintenance
New concrete floors should be allowed to cure a minimum of thirty days. Application to floors colder than 60 F is not recommended. Floor surfaces must be free of any release agents, curing compounds, salts or efflorescence before coating. Sweep and then wash floors with an appropriate cleaning product to remove oil, grease, and soil. Follow by etching surface with an etching solution, then thoroughly rinse with clean water.
If floor has been previously coated, a small area should be cleaned, roughed up by screen disking with an 80 Grit screen, and then sealer applied to test for adhesion, lifting, etc. Any areas of the existing coating which display poor adhesion should be stripped. Wash the stripped areas, acid etch, and rinse thoroughly. Allow the floor to dry.
Catalyzed GroundWorx EC should be used within six hours of mixing, therefore, prepare only the quantity necessary for immediate use. Add premeasured catalyst to epoxy base. Stir gently until the catalyst has been thoroughly mixed in. Allow catalyzed GroundWorx EC to stand for 5 minutes.
Apply catalyzed GroundWorx EC with a short nap roller in thin, uniform coats. The initial coat will cover approximately 400-500 ft2 per gallon. Allow the initial coat to dry for 5-7 hours, then apply a second coat. Second coat coverage is approximately 500-600 ft2 per gallon.

This product is not recommended for applications that experience reoccurring standing water. Finished floors may be opened to light traffic, under normal curing conditions, after 12 hours. Complete curing with maximum durability and chemical resistance will take 5-7 days.
