Manufacturers, who use process required tapes, in close proximity to static sensitive devices, are specifying Polyonics tapes in their ESD control plans.

Polyonics ESD-Safe tapes include static dissipative and low charging performance options that have proven to be important elements in successful ESD control plans. Manufacturers, in a growing array of industries, including electronics, automotive, medical, solar and aerospace, who use process-required tapes in close proximity to static sensitive devices in their products, are using Polyonics ESD-Safe tapes to protect their most sensitive components during manufacturing and assembly. The tapes are used for a variety of applications including high voltage insulation, circuit isolation, high temperature and harsh chemical masking and high strength bonding, all while protecting static sensitive devices, components and assemblies from ESD events.
The Polyonics ESD tapes are available in a variety of constructions including high temperature amber and black polyimide plus low cost white and clear PET. The tapes generate less than 125 volts when their liners are removed and again when the tapes are removed post process. This compares to greater than 10kV for standard, non-ESD tapes and allows the Polyonics ESD-Safe tapes to be safely used within 12" of static sensitive devices.
Static dissipative tapes are also available with surface resistances greater than 10^5 and less than 10^9 Ohms. All Polyonics ESD tapes meet the requirements of ANSI/ESD S20.20, IEC 61340 and JEDEC JESD625B standards for charged insulators.
