ESD, Conductive and Anti-Static Plastics

ESD, Conductive and Anti-Static Plastics

Why you should use Conductive Materials:

  • Static Removed from wearing areas
  • ESD and/or Conductive Fixtures For Electronic Applications
  • Static Discharge or Conductive Without Using Metals
  • Fills of Carbon Fiber,Carbon Powder, Stainless Steel, and Non-Carbon based Homogeneous Materials
  • Light Weight, Machinable and ESD In One Material

Applications – Frequently used in:

  • Fixtures around sensitive electronic components
  • Tooling for working on electric materials
  • Protection and shipping of sensitive electronic components

Three common terms used to subdivide ESD with materials based on their surface resistance are:

  • Anti-Static pertaining to a material or procedure that disperses, or inhibits the accumulation of, static charges
  • Conductivesurface resistance of less than 1 x 10 5 ohms/square
  • Dissipative surface resistance of more than 1 x 10 5 ohms/square but less than 1 x10 11 ohms/square.
