Styccobond F57 used for the installation of specialist floorcoverings

Flooring contractors have successfully completed the installation of new static dissipative floorcoverings at the premises of one of the UK’s leading electronics manufacturers with the help of F. Ball’s Styccobond F57 Conductive Adhesive.

The location was Whiteley Electronics Ltd in Cosham, Portsmouth, and the contract – for six small ECD areas, one large ESD area, corridors and communal areas totalling some 1,000 m² – formed part of an extensive refurbishment scheme.

Before the new floorcovering could be installed, the old one had to be removed and this revealed a subfloor in a very poor condition. Mechanical scabbling was required before screeding could take place. This involved the application of Stopgap P131 primer followed by Stopgap 200 acrylic self-smoothing underlayment in thicknesses from 5 – 10 mm.

Polyflor 2000 SD heavy contract flexible vinyl sheet with static dissipative properties for the control of electrostatic discharge was then installed using Styccobond F57, a fibre-filled conductive acrylic adhesive. Specifically designed for securing Vinyl/PVC conductive and anti-static floorcoverings, Styccobond F57 offers excellent working characteristics such as a high bond strength, strong initial tack and a long open time.
