CHARLESWATER EUROPE’S CONDUCTIVE
ACRYLIC PAINT IS A DURABLE ACRYLIC PAINT
THAT IS CONDUCTIVE IN ACCORDANCE
WITH MIL-HDBK-283-B
Figure 1, Item No. 71016, 3.8 litres
Description
Charleswater Europe’s Statguard®
Conductive Acrylic Paint is a one part floor
coating formulated to produce controlled
dissipation of static electrical charges.
Conductive Acrylic Paint is very effective as
a static control floor coating for electronics
manufacturing, assembly, and storage. It is
available in grey in a 3.8 litre container as
item no. 71016 and in 19 litre container as
item no. 71017.
General Guidelines
GROUNDING:
Conventional grounding practices like
connecting painted surfaces to ground or
internal building grounds are only required
for applications of Statguard® Conductive
Acrylic Paint that are not in excess of 1.8
square metres. For applications that are
greater than 1.8 square metres, grounding
should not be required. The electrical
properties of conductive paint enable the
surface to dissipate 5000 volts to zero in
less than 0.01 seconds per FTMS 101C,
Method 4046 without conventional grounds.
The conductive paint becomes a capacitance reservoir that effectively drains static
charges.
Foot grounders should be used in
conjunction with flooring painted with
Statguard® Conductive Acrylic Paint to
properly ground personnel. For more
information, please contact the Charleswater
Europe factory.
Surface Preparation
The two most important characteristics for
successful application of Statguard®
Conductive Acrylic Paint applications are:
1. The surface must be clean, dry, dull, and
smooth. Heavy dirt or grease build-up
should be removed with a stripper or
CONCRETE:
New concrete should cure for a minimum of
28 days before coating with Statguard®
Conductive Acrylic Paint. Not all concrete is
created equal -- concrete surfaces vary
widely in physical and chemical qualities due
to the way the concrete was originally
formulated, poured, or finished.
There are several methods to prepare
problem concrete. Each method depends on
the condition of the concrete. Adhesion
properties can be increased by profiling or
roughing the surface through acid etching,
rotary drum sanding, scarifying, or
mechanically scratching the surface.
PRIMING:
Statguard® Conductive Acrylic Paint bonds
well to clean, dry concrete. However, a
standard industrial primer can be used on
certain difficult to bond substrates and
enhance the adhesion of Statguard®
Conductive Acrylic Paint.
PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES:
The surface should be clean and free of
dust, grease, wax, and soap residue. Wash
with ordinary detergent and water. Rinse
thoroughly with clean water and let dry.
Glossy surfaces can be dulled by lightly
sanding and then vacuuming, and cleaning.
Cracks and holes should be repaired before
applying the Statguard® Conductive Acrylic
Paint. Adhesion can be improved by using a
standard industrial type primer.
UNPAINTED SURFACES:
Adhesion can be improved by using a
standard industrial type primer. Metal should
be primed with red oxide primer. Concrete,
wood, plastics, and most other surfaces
should be properly cleaned. Let dry and then
apply Statguard® Conductive Acrylic Paint.
COVERAGE:
Statguard® Conductive Acrylic Paint will
cover 28 to 37 square metres at a 1 to 1.5
mm thick dry film per 3.8 litre on a smooth
surface. Coverage is less on coarse or
textured surfaces. Two coats are
recommended to achieve maximum
performance from the paint.
Application
Always use in a well ventilated area or wear
a suitable respirator. Wear appropriate eye
protection such as splash goggles and
impervious type protection gloves to protect
hands.
APPLICATION BY ROLLER
1. Stir paint thoroughly to mix any settled
solids to produce uniform grey colour.
2. Combine separate cans of paint into one
container to ensure uniform colour distribution. It is recommended that a test area
be coated to ensure that the adhesion and
electrical performance of the paint is
acceptable. (See Adhesion Testing, Figure
5.) If the test areas show inadequate
adhesion, use an industrial floor
primer/sealer.
3. Saturate a 6.35 mm fine nap roller or an
industrial brush with paint. Remove excess
paint and trapped air from the applicator by
moving applicator several times in the paint
tray.
4. A minimum number of strokes from the
applicator on the substrate is recommended
to minimise air bubbles.

APPLICATION BY SPRAY
Conventional Spray Gun: “E” fluid tip and
needle and #704, 765 or 78 air gap.
Airless Spray: Spray gun and spray cap or
suitable orifice diameter 0.508-0.635 mm.
Mix paint thoroughly before using and stir
occasionally when applying. No thinning
necessary. Room temperature must be
above 10°C.
A minimum of two coats of Statguard®
Conductive Acrylic Paint is recommended
for appropriate static protection.
Figure 3. Spray paint application
Clean Up
Wash applicators with water immediately
after painting. Remove paint spills promptly
with a wet cloth. Close container after each
use. Keep container from freezing.
Drying
It is recommended that Conductive Acrylic
Paint be allowed to dry at a temperature in
excess of 7°C. A minimum of 1 to 2 hours
drying time should be allowed before
applying the second coat. Wait a minimum
of 12 hours drying time after the last coat
before allowing light traffic on the coated
area. At high humidity levels, a longer drying
time may be necessary. Do not force dry.
Maintenance
Use sweeper, vacuum, or broom to remove
dirt. Allow two weeks drying time before
using a damp mop to clean the coated area.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, floor rinse, or
scrubbing machine to clean the floor.
Optional Finish/Sealer
Charleswater Europe’s Statguard®
Conductive Acrylic Paint can be over-coated
or sealed with Statguard® Floor Finish static
dissipative coating to increase durability,
enhance shine, improve ease of
maintenance, and seal out dirt and debris.
Statguard® is a polymer base floor
finish/sealer that can be used as a top coat
on the Conductive Acrylic Paint. Surface
resistivity will then be in the 106-107 ohms
range. Two coats are recommended. Three
coats will increase electrical properties,
durability and reduce frequency of
maintenance. Ask for Technical Bulletin
PPE-5023E for more information on
Statguard® Floor Finish.

ADHESION:
Allow newly applied paint to dry a minimum
of 48 hours before proceeding with the test.
At humidity levels over 55% RH, allow 72
hours of drying time before testing. Use a
razor to cut a cross or a few perpendicular
lines over a 75 mm by 75 mm area on
several spots of the thoroughly dried area.
Use a piece of masking tape to cover the
marked area. Make sure the tape is
thoroughly adhered to the test area. Pull the
tape off the surface and examine the
amount of paint which has peeled off during
the test. If any significant portion is
transfered to the tape, better surface
preparation (acid etching, cleaning or
sanding) should be done on the substrate to
enhance the adhesion.

To best ensure consistent results, the test
should be done at various locations.
ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES:
Test the surface resistivity, point-to-point
resistance, and resistance-to-ground
properties of coated area per ANSI ESDS7.1 test method. For quick and easy
verification of the paint’s electrical
properties, Charleswater Europe
recommends the use of our 99100 Surface
Resistance Test Kit (Figure 4). For more
information request Technical Bulletin PPE5032E.
