Johnson Endura Anti-Static Tiles

Specially designed to minimize electrostatic discharge hazards

 

Established in 1958, H & R Johnson (India), a division of Prism Johnson Ltd. (Formerly Prism Cement Ltd.) is the pioneer of ceramic tiles in India.

 

Static charge is a constant source of problem in various industrial processes, in areas where highly sensitive electronic or computing equipment are in operation and in many areas of industries where inflammable chemicals or explosives are being used. Static electricity can lead to sparks that could cause fire hazards in areas like petrochemical industries, chemical plants, and bulk drug plants or in other fire prone areas. To provide a suitable flooring solution that works for static-sensitive spaces, Johnson Endura offers Anti-Static tile, a Johnson patented technology which caters to a very niche but highly important areas.

Tiles as you know is an insulator, which it needs to be in most cases. But in some special situations tiles need to function as a conductor. There is a lot of static electricity generated in areas across the electronic industry, PLC centers, petrochemical industry and chemical industries. This static electricity is required to dissipate through the floors otherwise it could result in an electrostatic discharge hazard.

Static electricity accumulates on the surface of any floor be it natural stone, ceramic tile or any other flooring material which could prove hazardous. This innovation from Johnson Endura removes the static electricity from the surface of the tiles and earths it, thus minimizing fire hazards. Apart from anti-static properties, the Johnson Endura Anti-Static Tile is highly abrasion resistant, has superior chemical durability with very high mechanical strength, features that ensure a safe and comfortable working space.
