Coefficient of friction, surface roughness, floor flatness, gloss, and wear can all affect the ability of robots to run at their peak performance. Specifying the TriGard® ESD ﬁnish ensures that your ResinDek® engineered wood flooring panels will endure the consistent, repeated travel patterns of high-frequency robotic traffic and that the robots will perform the way they were intended. TriGard ESD coating was designed to withstand 10 years of wear associated with autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and with the defined travel paths of automatic guided vehicles (AGVs).
The TriGard ESD coating incorporates electrostatic dissipative (ESD) that complies with ANSI/ESD Association speciﬁcations to protect sensitive, on-board electronic equipment from damage. Additionally, TriGard ESD has been engineered to provide 3x greater resistance to wear than Gray Diamond Seal® ESD. When required for certain robotic applications the TriGard ESD coating can be modified to create an even lower or higher reflectivity and increased surface roughness.
TriGard proprietary coating has been tested in accordance with the following standards:
Dynamic Coefficient of Friction: ASTM A326.3
Test Procedure: Neolite sensor has material that is 95+/-3 Shore A
Results: Average Dry: 0.62 | Average Wet: 0.28
