Colorex ESD Permanent Floor Tiles is an advanced technical flooring system specifically designed to control static discharge in sensitive areas such as cleanrooms, operating theatres, pharmaceutical industry and the electronics industry. Not only does Colorex provide an advanced technical solution, but it is also aesthetically pleasing, enhancing any commercial interior from industrial to educational establishments.
Colorex can be used in many different applications. It can be installed by fully adhering it directly to a subfloor or bonding it to a raised access floor panel. It can also be laid as part of a loose lay tile system. Colorex is available with three levels of conductivity.
Colorex SD Static Dissipative Tiles
Colorex SD is a static dissipative homogeneous floor covering in tile format with permanent ESD properties. Because of the dense network of dissipative veins, static charges flow easily through the floor to earth. Colorex SD tiles can withstand the most demanding conditions and offer a perfect solution for highly sensitive areas such as cleanrooms, and for demanding production sites in the electronics, life sciences and manufacturing industry.
Colorex enables safe electrostatic discharge through the whole thickness of the tile. The conductive mass throughout the tile is formed of a dense network of tiny carbon black veins permanently static dissipative floor, connection between tiles through the conductive adhesive and connected to earth through copper strip. Colorex SD Static Dissipative Tiles can be applied in newly built laboratories, clean rooms, pharmaceutical laboratories, production sites and operating theatres.
In highly sensitive healthcare areas, and anywhere that has strict hygiene requirements, it’s vital that floor-to-wall transitions are water-tight, perfectly hygienic and aesthetically pleasing. The integrated coving system creates a perfect seal for these critical areas using the same Colorex material.
In industries such as the pharmaceutical industry where electronic components or volatile chemicals are involved, static electricity can result in significant damage, injury and financial loss. All active electronic components and equipment e.g. micro-chips, integrated circuits and machinery are sensitive to electrostatic discharges (also known as ESD events).
Even when areas and people are equipped to handle such static-sensitive devices, inadvertent contact and damage can occur. Bondline’s ESD Permanent Flooring can safeguard your entire process. These systems can be designed to produce a floor tailored to meet your specific needs.
Colorex ESD Permanent Flooring can be applied in the following areas:
- ESD facilities.
- Pharmaceutical laboratories.
- Production sites (electronics, manufacturing, life sciences).
- Operating theatres.
Colorex EC satisfies the strictest requirements for particle release behaviour, helping to reduce any threat of contamination.

Cleaning and Maintenance
For optimal performance of the flooring, follow these floor care guidelines:
- Remove dust and loose dirt with a vacuum or damp mop. Allow the floor to dry.
- Dry polish thoroughly with a low speed single disk machine and red pad. Recommended you perform two passages with crossing strokes.
- If you prefer a shiny appearance, perform an additional dry polish with a white or yellow pad. High speed can be used but is not absolutely necessary.
- For small rooms or areas with light traffic: wipe daily with impregnated single use tissues.
- For large rooms or areas with heavy traffic: spray clean with a low speed, single disc machine and red pad. This cleaning method is also best suited to raised floors.
