Static dissipative sheet vinyl flooring, DIF (semiconductive) ESD approval certificate Dnr 230-01-0027
Manufacturers website: Upofloor
Estrad ESD is a static dissipative vinyl flooring. Its unique composition and structure dissipates electricity evenly and also performs very well in dry conditions (RH 12%). The applications for Estrad ESD include the R&D and production facilities of the electronics and telecommunications industries and operating theatres and other surgical rooms of hospitals.
Estrad ESD is part of the wide range of harmonised Estrad products designed for public premises. The thickness of Estrad ESD is the same as other Estrad products, and the colours are repeated in the Estrad collection, making it easy to coordinate these flooring materials in different parts of the same building.
Upofloor resilient floorings are a supplied to order only product.

Estrad product family - durability and easy maintenance
Estrad floorings have been manufactured in the town of Nokia, Finland, for over 20 years. Over the years, their performance characteristics have been honed to perfection; the latest innovations including a new PUR surface treatment for even easier maintenance, and the new material composition providing top-grade Group T wear resistance.
The Estrad family provides excellent wear resistance and performance in demanding applications such as education and the healthcare and service sectors. The resilient flooring is moisture-proof and pleasant underfoot.
The main products within the Estrad family are available in two patterns: Estrad and higher-contrast Podium. In addition,Estrad Plano is a fully uni-colour option. The product range also includes two specialty products: Estrad dB for spaces requiring impact sound resistance, and Estrad ESD for eliminating static electricity.

Any surface suited for normal vinyl flooring will be suitable as a base for installation. RH of the concrete floor must not exceed 85% or CM 2.0%. The temperature of installation, subfloor and material should be at least +18 °C. Before installing the flooring, it must be ensured that the final levelling compounds have dried sufficiently.
The backside of flooring has sufficient conductive properties; conductive adhesive is not required for installation. For the same reason, a metal grid on the subfloor is unnecessary. Regular vinyl flooring adhesive is suitable for installation. Adhesive manufacturers provide full information and recommendations on the use of their products.
In public areas the floor must be rolled to achieve maximum adhesion. The weight of the roll should be 50 - 70 kg. Rolling should be carried out before the adhesive dries. This is done to prevent the emergence of adhesive application lines and indentations on the finished floor surface. Avoid traffic on the floor and do not move furniture until the adhesive has completely dried.
Seams and coved skirtings are to be heat welded using a PVC-rod. Also corners should be welded. Where welding is not possible, sealing should be carried out using a suitable welding paste. When laying flooring sections which are laid against the wall a hot air gun should be used on the reverse side of the flooring in order to avoid differences in gloss and damages on the floor surface. Welding paste should also be used for sealing of through fitted pipes.
Installation instructions, copper strips for grounding and maintenance instructions are delivered in the core of each roll.
Remove loose dirt through dry or damp cleaning. Clean the floor with a combination machine or a floor cleaning machine with red pads or with medium hard brushes. Use alkaline detergent containing glycols, such as a wax removal agent. Follow the product manufacturer's dosage guidelines.
Estrad ESD floorings in health care premises are not recommended to be polished. You can treat the cleaned floor with an SHS machine together with a maintenance agent or by dry puffing. NB! The gloss level of the surface will increase considerably and permanently.
If you want to polish the floor for example in industrial premises, use one coat of ESD polish. A second coat of polish may change the conductivity of the flooring. Localised polishing is not recommended since layering the polish should be avoided.
Perform dry or damp cleaning. Increase dampness to clean hard-to-remove soiling. Use a combination machine to treat larger surfaces and an SHS machine to treat smaller surfaces. Use red pads in the machine. Use a mild alkaline cleaning and maintenance agent.
Wash heavily soiled floors with an alkaline solution or with a strong alkaline solution where necessary. Use a floor cleaning machine or a combination machine with red pads. Rinse carefully. When necessary, clean and dry floor can be treated with an SHS machine and a maintenance agent. After basic cleaning, polished floors can be treated with a one coat of ESD polish.
