Eliminate Static Control Problems Static electricity, a natural phenomenon, is the primary cause of a myriad of problems affecting industry, business and personal life. These problems can be as simple – and yet as annoying – as the shock resulting from walking across a carpet; as costly as the destruction of sensitive electronic components or jamming of machinery; and as dangerous as the ignition of combustible vapors, powders or dust. Although there are many methods of dealing with static, most of them have serious shortcomings, such as limited effectiveness, high cost or short life. Staticide®, an inexpensive, easy-to-use topical antistatic solution, is a highly-effective method for long-term static control. It is widely used in a broad range of industries, as well as in the office. Available in several different formulations, Staticide® is packaged in gallons or ready-to-use quart bottles with sprayers. It is easily applied on walls, ceilings, floors, carpets, fixtures, work surfaces, tools and equipment, conveyor belts, clothing and other materials. On a hard surface, one gallon of Staticide® will cover several thousand square feet, and last from weeks to months, depending on the application. When properly applied, Staticide® complies with or exceeds all electrostatic decay criteria established for antistatic performance as set forth by NFPA and MIL B-81705, when test in accordance with Federal Test Standard 101B, Method 4046. Staticide® is a proprietary water-based formulation consisting of several quarternary compounds. The following specifications generally apply to Staticide® in its ready-to-use-form. Explanation of "General Purpose" versus "Regular Heavy Duty Staticide®" "General Purpose: Light duty solution for low friction surfaces and clear high gloss materials. Used for all work surfaces, trays, tote bags, PC boards, plastics, dip tubes, components, storage bins, carriers, packaging, film and hard floors. Does not last as long as "Regular" Staticide®. If material is non-porous, use "General Purpose." "Regular" Heavy Duty: Long-lasting solution for high friction surfaces. Used for treating carpets, chairs, clothing, conveyor belts, totes and work surfaces with heavy use. If material is porous or absorbent, use "Regular" Heavy Duty.
