Sika Sikafloor®-230 ESD TopCoat is a two part, water dispersed, electrostatic dissipative, epoxy coloured floor seal coat.
Sikafloor®-230 ESD TopCoat may only be used by experienced professionals. Sikafloor®-230 ESD TopCoat is used as: Dissipative coloured indoor system, in conjunction with Sika Sikafloor®-262 AS. Particularly suitable for areas with requirements for the lowest electrostatic charge (low BVG (Body Voltage Generation)) and dissipative surface. Typical applications include clean rooms in the electronics industry, microbiology/microchemistry sectors, production plants in the automobile industry etc.
- Body voltage generation < 20 V
- Easy application
- In accordance with general ESD requirements
- Matt finish
- Water dispersed
- Fulfils ESD-requirements at > 12 % RH/+23°C*
The surface must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants such as dirt, oil, grease, coatings and surface treatments. All dust, loose and friable material must be completely removed from the surface preferably by vacuum. Pull-off strength shall be not less than 1.5 N/mm². If in doubt apply a test area first. Prior to mixing, stir part A mechanically. When all of part B has been added to part A, mix continuously for 3 minutes until a uniform mix has been achieved. To ensure thorough mixing pour materials into another container and mix again to achieve a consistent mix. Over mixing must be avoided to minimise air entrainment.
Sikafloor®-230 ESD TopCoat must be thoroughly mixed using a low speed electric stirrer (300 - 400 rpm) or other suitable equipment. Prior to application, confirm substrate moisture content, relative humidity and dew point. Uniformly spread 1x Sikafloor®-230 ESD TopCoat by using a short pile (12 mm) nylon roller. After proper curing the application of the maintenenance layer Ceradur is mandatory. For further details please refer to the paragraph Maintenance and/or to the related system data sheet.
Application of the maintenance layer CERADUR: In order to ensure a long-lasting, high-quality finish and easy cleaning, the application of a floor care product (Kiehl Ceradur) is mandatory. The application of Ceradur can be executed by machine or by using a flat mob. Detailed information: KAW Kiehl - Werk und Zentralverwaltung, D-85235, Odelzhausen, Rudolf- Diesel-Straße 6, Tel.: +49 8134 9305-40, Fax: +49 8134 5145. http://www.kiehl-group.com. Possibly arising strips with application of CERADUR disappear usually after short service life. To maintain the appearance of the floor after application, Sikafloor®-230 ESD Top-Coat (polished with Ceradur) must have all spillages removed immediately and must be regularly cleaned using suitable detergents. The floor area must daily be cleaned using a mild alkaline cleaner such as TORVAN (Kiehl). Mixing ratio: < 0.6% in water. Method of and equipment for the cleaning of the area will depend upon size and manpower available.
For large areas equipment such as a Taski (Diversey) or Kaercher scrubber drier would be advantageous. Generally no undiluted cleaning agent should remain for longer time on the surface. Basic cleaning in the first 2 weeks is not permitted, only dry cleaning e.g. by broom. In the following 2 weeks only cleaning with a mop is recommended. For further details please refer to the Information Manual "Cleaning & Maintenance of Sikafloor ® Systems".
