Sphera SD Homogeneous Vinyl Flooring

Application

Specifically designed to control static discharges and particles in the most sensitive environments such as pharmaceutical, life sciences and healthcare facilities.

Description

Premium homogeneous vinyl sheet flooring with SMART top polyurethane (PUR) surface finish, offering high quality regardless of conditions.


Features and benefits:

  • Innovative product development and carefully controlled production processes ensure a solution with permanent conductive properties that comply with all electrostatic discharge (ESD) standards.
  • Retains high performance throughout the product’s lifetime regardless of environmental conditions (e.g. humidity levels).
  • Low emissions and phthalate-free manufacturing ensure that Sphera SD can contribute to a healthy indoor environment.
  • The SMART control surface treatment makes Sphera SD resistant to stains and scratches, for a durable and hygienic solution.
  • Conductive backing eliminates the need for conductive adhesive underneath the full sheet. It is only necessary to affix the copper strip, thus minimising installation errors and reducing costs.
  • Produced in a zero-waste environment, ensuring efficient and sustainable manufacturing.
  • Phthalate–free.


Adhesive:

  • 641 Eurostar Special EL very low emission conductive adhesive for PVC for affixing copper strip.
  • 640 Eurostar Special very low emission PVC adhesive.
