ESD – Electrostatic Dissipative Laminates

Electrostatic Dissipative laminates (ESD) diffuse static electricity to protect electronics and other static-sensitive devices from electric charges that could cause damage during manufacturing or assembly.

Features:

  • Low electrical resistance (surface to ground less than 1 x 10ohms)
  • Absolute charge drainage and zero voltage suppression. ESD exhibits no voltage suppression and dissipates a 5,000 volt static charge to zero in less than 0.01 second per FTM-101C at 5 to 95 percent relative humidity.
  • ESD is postformable but will require a larger radius than standard laminate.
  • Resistant to most common solvents, hot solder and fluxes.
  • ESD is guaranteed to maintain its static control properties.

Applications:

ESD provides a surface that will not attract dust or dirt particles, which is ideal for:

  • Workstations where static-sensitive electronic components are manufactured
  • Hospitals
  • Medical facilities
  • Clean rooms
