Statguard® Conductive Acrylic Paint Application Instructions degreaser. Cleaning methods range from: sweeping, vacuuming, wire brush, airblasting, water jet, steam cleaning, or stripping. 2. If the surface is concrete, it must be in good condition. 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. 1. Mix any settled solids to produce a uniform grey colour. 3. Saturate a 6.35mm fine nap roller with paint, remove excess paint and trapped air. 2. Combine separate cans into a larger container. 4. A minimum number of strokes from the applicator is recommended.

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. Physical Properties Type: Water base acrylic coating Colour: Grey Vehicle Type: Pure acrylic resin waterborne Pigment Type: Lead free, iron oxide, titanium dioxide and extenders Viscosity: 50 Krebs units Solids: 21% by volume Coating Density: 1.0 kilograms per litre Gloss: 30 @ 60° Max. Temperature: Dry - 149°C Wet - 93°C 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. 1. 2. Electrical Properties Surface Resistivity: 105 ohms/sq. per ASTM D257 Static Charge Decay: <0.01 sec. per FTMS 101B, Method 4046 Charge Generation: Zero per AATCC Step Test, Method 134-197 RTT: 105 ohms per ANSI ESD-S7.1 RTG: 105 ohms per ANSI ESD-S7.1 Testing Representative areas should be tested for adhesion and electrical performance of the paint before applying paint to the entire floor. 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. Figure 4. Electrical testing on the painted floor using Surface Resistance Test Kit, Item #99100 Use a razor to cut into a painted, dried floor. 3. Apply tape on the precut area. 4. Pull the tape off. Examine the degree of paint separation from the concrete. Figure 5. Adhesion test on the painted floor.
