Innovative floor renewal system protects against electrostatic discharge
Bona® has recently launched Bona Pure ESD coatings, a new addition to the Bona Resilient Solution. Bona Pure ESD is a durable, innovative floor renewal system that dissipates electrical discharge in a room to prevent damage to products or machinery.
“For sensitive electrical systems and devices in buildings such as hospitals, even the smallest electrostatic discharge can lead to serious damage to the machines and equipment,” said Michael Klinge, Product Manager, Professional Coatings, Bona. Bona Pure ESD allows buildings to take advantage of the renewal benefits of the Bona Resilient Solution while also protecting the people and equipment in the room.”
The Bona Resilient Solution is an innovative process that can renew a resilient flooring surface including linoleum, PVC, rubber and LVT. The endless transformation possibilities allow a facility to upgrade a worn, damaged floor with a range of colors. The entire process uses the existing flooring surface avoiding the cost and downtime of tearing out the floor.
The system includes two top coats and one base paint available in three color options – Pigeon Blue, Agate Grey, and Pastel Turquoise. The products meet the requirements for discharge according to the standard EN 61340-5-1 (07.2017) and (resistance < 10high6 Ohm) and ANSI 20.20:2014 norms.
“This is a valuable addition to our product line that is ideal for environments that house large equipment or machinery such as hospital operating rooms, a technology server room, a laboratory, or warehouse,” continued Klinge. “In the production of electrical goods such as microchips, even a small electrical discharge can lead to damage. Bona Pure ESD helps to prevent the risk of shock discharge and to ensure a safe work area’’
In addition to the cost and downtime savings, the Bona Resilient Solution is sustainable. Floor renewal can help contribute to a facility's environmental goals by reducing the carbon footprint by up to 90% and increasing energy savings by up to 90% according to a study conducted by the IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute.
