Flextronics Americas Headquarters, located in San Jose, California contracted Duplan Construction to upgrade an existing electronics production facility, building M-6 in Milpitas, CA one of Flextronics production facilities for micro chips and mother boards. The 50,000 square foot building had VCT electrostatic discharge tiles that had failed.
The project required a quick turnaround time because of a contract procured with Motorola that needed to be in production within 45 days.
STS, Inc. was recommended to Duplan Construction from the success of a previous project. The ESD floor application on the San Jose project has preformed to all expectations along with being esthetically pleasing. Their applicators were professional and met the critical schedule imposed.
A site inspection was done prior to preparing the surface. It was identified at that time that there was a probable moisture issue and recommended that a 30 mil vapor barrier be applied prior to the application of the 15 mils of high build ESD epoxy flooring.
