Sigaway® Electronic

Sigaway® Electronic

Sigaway® Electronic is a full surface 104 ohms textile re-enforced dry ESD conductive double sided self stick roll flooring adhesive. It is VOC free, free of odors, carcinogens, out-gassing, toxins, and is totally safe for people. The adhesive is acrylic based, plasticizer resistant, contains no formaldehydes and has unrestricted waste disposal. Sigaway® Electronic has a lower adhesive strength to the old flooring and a high strength adhesion to the new flooring. Installations (i.e. carpet tile over access floors, trenches, or old carpet) are releasable. (See restrictions in detailed installation instructions). 

SKU 7401-100025 Rolls 39.5" x 82'6" (1 m x 25 m)
See S.D.S. Sigaway Electronic in Technical Data Section

Sigaway® Electronic may be installed without a primer only over dry*** (< 3.0 lb/1000 sft. < 80% relative Humidity (rH) and with a pH of 7-9.) structurally sound, firm, dust and oil-free surfaces, such as concrete, VAT, vinyl composition tile, homogeneous vinyl sheet or tile, poured epoxy or urethane, old feather finish leveled ceramic tile, metal, stone or terrazzo. It may be used over steel or HPL covered access floors. It may be used over wood and parquet, plywood and laminates only if these sub-floors are free of acrylic finishes and are not directly installed over on-grade or below-grade concrete without an air space between the concrete and the wood products (Moisture!!). Dry adhesive may not be used over gypsum patches. Not suitable for outdoor installations. Alternately, the product may be installed over moisture barrier primers that are capable of blocking < 7.0 – 16 lb/1000 sft. (see Notes on moisture barrier primers in the Technical Data Section)

Sigaway® Electronic may be used to adhere ESD conductive AZO Berber carpet rolls or tile with an integral conductive backing. It is also used to install ESD conductive solid vinyl sheet (ESD conductive euro-flex sheet or tile or ESD conductive euro-flex High Traction tile.

Unsuitable New Flooring
Sigaway® Electronic should not be used with dimensionally non-stable flooring products, ESD conductive rubber sheet or tile, or STC vinyl composition tile (dusty back). 

NOTE: Sigaway® Electronic cannot make non-conductive flooring conductive. Conductive flooring must have a full surface conductive backing. Pressed ESD tiles without fully conductive backings do not work satisfactorily as conductivity can decrease by 1-3 potencies. 

Advantages of Installation with Sigaway® Dry Adhesive
Save the dust, debris, expense of disposal of old flooring and re-prepping of old sub-floors necessitated by tear out. Dry adhesive has no open time. It can be laid directly over old floors. Vinyl may be heat welded immediately. Installations may be subjected to rolling loads and heavy traffic without waiting. No downtime - Can be installed during ordinary business operations.

Installation steps
Roll out Sigaway® Electronic perpendicular to new flooring. Overlap and double cut seams. Connect double cut sheets with copper tape and provide grounding in multiple locations. For ESD conductive carpet over glue-down carpet use Siga construction tape to re-enforce perimeters and seams beneath the Sigaway®. Unroll new ESD conductive carpet or ESD conductive vinyl, seam seal as per manufacturer's specifications. Roll and put into service.

Alternate Installation steps
Sigaway® Electronic provides tile-to-tile conductivity. When installing ESD conductive rolls of carpet or vinyl with fully integral conductive backings, a lower cost alternate installation may be used. Use Sigaway® Original as a con-conductive full surface adhesive, apply Siga Circuit to the perimeter of the installation and every 30 ft. approx. across the seams, and connect with Siga Copper Tape to ground. 

Installation Instructions
CAUTION: Request Detailed Installation Instructions and conduct tests before installation.
