Conductive Epoxy Coating NT

Conductive Nano-Tube Filled Epoxy

Product #1 ESD-NT


DESCRIPTION

Product #1 ESD-NT is a 100% solids bis-A epoxy floor coating designed to provide electrostatic control properties to various surfaces including concrete or other non-conductive substrates. Product #1 NT-ESD has good chemical resistance and is ideal for any areas requiring electrostatic dissipative or conductive surfaces, provides excellent bond to concrete as well as impact and wear resistance. Application over a non-conductive primer or basecoat will transmit ESD readings of less than 1,000,000,000 ohms through Product #1 NT-ESD. Application over Product #668 CONDUCTIVE PRIMER will transmit conductive readings of less than 1,000,000 ohms through Product #1 NT-ESD.

Advantages

  • Carbon nanotube technology: Consistent electrical resistance readings regardless of film thickness
  • ESD/Conductive properties for life of the coating
  • Meets USGBC LEED criteria for low VOC, low odor
  • Gloss finish, easy to clean
  • Good chemical resistance and abrasion resistance
  • May be sealed with Epoxy.com -ESD Urethane for enhanced performance properties
  • Tests less than 1x109 ohms conforming with ANSI/ESD S20.20 standard when applied over non-conductive primer or basecoat
  • Tests less than 1x106 ohms conforming with ANSI/ESD S20.20 standard when applied over Product #668 Condutive Primer
  • Body Voltage Generation (BVG) below 100 volts conforming with ANSI/ESD S20.20 standard
  • Dissipates a 5000 volt charge to zero in less than 0.1 seconds @ 72° and 12% RH

Considerations for Use

  • Substrate temperature must be a minimum of 55-60°F and maximum of 85°F
  • Relative Humidity should be 30-85% and substrate temperature must be 5°F above the measured dew point
  • Refer to Epoxy.com Surface Preparation guide regarding substrate requirements and surface preparation
  • Apply at 20-35 mils, application at <20 mils will create a prominent orange peel finish

COMPOSITION

100% solids bis-A epoxy resin and fillers.

COVERAGE

Product #1 NT-ESD will yield approximately 20-32 mils when spread at 50-80 ft2 per gallon.

Color Selection

Product 1 NT-ESD s available in NT-ESD Standard Colors only, contact Epoxy.com for color selection samples. The colors will vary slightly from Epoxy.com Standard Colors due to the conductive filler content.

APPLICATION

SURFACE PREPARATION

Surface Preparation is the most critical portion of any successful resinous flooring system application. All substrates must be properly prepared as outlined in Epoxy.com Surface Preparation Procedures. The Epoxy.com Technical Service Department is available to answer any questions.

INSTALLATION

Installation of Product #1NT-ESD will vary with application. Typically spread in a single coat at 50-80 ft2 per gallon with a 25-30 mil notched Easy-Squeegee and lightly back-roll with a medium nap roller, immediately with cross rolling using a spiked roller. Optional use of a metal-tined spiked roller will improve leveling of the coating.

IMPORTANT: 20 mils is considered the minimum thickness to avoid a prominent orange peel texture, depending to some extent on using a spiked roller. Optional: Add 10% MEK or Anhydrous Isopropyl Alcohol (99%) as thinner to reduce orange peel use ONLY these specific thinners. Care should be taken to minimize the entrapment of air caused by over rolling. For complete instructions, consult Epoxy.com Technical Service.

CLEAN UP

Clean skin with soap and water. Tools and equipment should be cleaned with xylene or lacquer thinner. Consult Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for safety and health precautions.
