Technical Data Sheet
Zero Charge Floor Coating
Fast drying, antistatic coating eliminates static charge and reduces triboelectric generation from flexible surfaces. Ideal for plastics, fabrics, and carpet.
Features & Benefits
- Resistivity between 10^6 To 10^10
- High gloss polymer
- Non-ozone depleting
- Slip resistant
- Effective in low humidity
- Zinc free

1. Read and follow enclosed instructions carefully
2. Must have clean equipment (bucket, ringer, mops)
3. Must use a different rayon mop for each procedure (3-4 needed). Make sure to use a mop dedicated to each step; for example, do not use a mop that has been used to strip or mop floors when applying 1720.
4. Take your time
Rinse floor thoroughly (2-3 times) with clean water, using a new mop. Use deionized water, if available. Remove excess with a “wet vac”.
Again, with a damp, clean rayon mop and clean pails, apply coating (1720) as follows:
1. Apply thin coat to floor, i.e. 3/4-way down on the ringer. Coat the floor uniformly; avoiding excessive foaming. Let dry to touch, approximately 60 minutes.
2. Apply a second coat, approximately 1/2-way down on the ringer. Do not use force air drying.
Note: Two coats only are recommended for conductive tile. Applying a third coat may cause the material to fall into the static dissipative range and out of the conductive range.
3. If a third coat is applied, repeat Step 2.
4. Allow last coat to dry overnight or minimum of six hours before permitting any kind of floor traffic on the newly coated area. An overnight cure is preferred.
5. Allow minimum of 48 hours of drying time before performing any wet maintenance (restoring and spray burnishing) on the newly coated floor.
Tips: If you are leaving streaks, the solution is too thin. If there are bubbles, the solution is going on too thick. You must pay attention to the thickness of the coating. If applied too thick, moisture can get trapped in the lower coating and the material will not dry properly, causing the coating to flake.
1. Dust mop with a dry untreated mop daily, or as needed, to remove accumulated dirt and insulative contaminants.
2. Wet mop once or twice per week as required with clean water.
To remove scuff marks and dirt, the floor can be buffed with a red pad. Approximately every third buffing, apply a thin coating of 1720. It is recommended that no more than 4 or 5 coatings accumulate. Then consideration should be given to stripping the floor and starting over.
In high traffic areas, you can spray buff as required. Use a 4 to 1 (water to coating) solution and apply a very fine mist to the floor. While the floor is still wet, buff with a white pad until dry.
If you find the surface resistivity readings going above 10^9, you can dry buff with a white pad. This may bring the readings down. If there are any rough areas, spray buff as described above. Take your readings once the floor has cooled down from buffing. If the reading is not coming down to spec it is time to start over again.
1. Techspray’s 1720 will cover approximately 1200 sq. ft./gallon with 2 coats.
2. Each mop may be maintained in its original solution for maintenance purposes.
3. Do not use mops for any other application other than its original use. Contamination can cause serious problems.
4. Clean the pails thoroughly. Avoid using the pails for any other use.
5. When starting from scratch, start with new mops. Do not use cotton mops, as they leave lint behind.
6. It is crucial to set up a program to take regular readings from appropriate test sites to know what is happening to the floor and to set up a proper maintenance program tailored to your requirements. All surface resistivity readings should be taken when floor is at room temperature.
7. Do not introduce any foreign substances, i.e. sealers or ammonia-based cleaners.
