Electro Static Discharge

Polyonics ESD MaterialsPolyonics has developed a family of ESD-Safe polyimide and polyester (PET) labels, tapes and films that comply with the S20.20, IEC 61340 and JESD625B standards and are safe to use in ESD control plans. The materials have static dissipative top surfaces and low charging pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) and liners that generate less than 125 volts with liner removal and again if repositioned or removed post process.

The materials have proven to help designers and manufacturers protect their most sensitive ESDS devices from electrostatic charges arising from both human contact (HBM) and charged devices (CDM) and have become valuable elements in the successful ESD control plans of global electronics EMS’, ODMs, converters and OEMs. Read more
