Polymers Provide Clean ESD Protection

April 1, 2000
Developed using the company's inherently-dissipative polymer alloy system, the Stat-Rite S-250 static-dissipative polypropylene alloy is claimed to provide clean, permanent electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection that is two orders of magnitude lower

Developed using the company's inherently-dissipative polymer alloy system, the Stat-Rite S-250 static-dissipative polypropylene alloy is claimed to provide clean, permanent electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection that is two orders of magnitude lower in surface resistance than existing ESD control technologies. The new alloy is said to produce rapid, consistent and predictable static decay times as a result of an inherent dissipative network that remains in tact from polymerization through compounding and processing. The alloys show significantly decreased static-decay times of below 0.01s, from 5000V, which approaches the static-decay time of carbon filled material.
