The new Polyonics ESD-Safe films, tapes and labels surpass the latest ANSI/ESD S20.20 standards for process required insulators and can be used safely in close proximity to ESD sensitive devices.
Westmoreland, NH (PRWEB) September 07, 2017
Polyonics manufactures films, tapes and labels, required in electronics manufacturing, that have proven to help protect ESD sensitive (ESDS) devices. These materials, called process required insulators, are governed by the ANSI/ESD S20.20, IEC 61340 JEDEC JESD625B standards. The standards specify the maximum levels of static charge that can be generated by or retained on an insulator be less than 100 volts when used in close proximity to ESD sensitive (ESDS) devices. They also specify the surface resistances be ≥ 10^6 and ≥10^9 Ohms. Polyonics ESD-Safe films, tapes and labels fulfill all these requirements and are in use around the world in some of the most complex and sensitive electronics devices.
Static Dissipative and Low Charging Tapes, Labels and Liners
The ESD-Safe materials and their liners are static dissipative with surface resistances of ≥10^6 and ≥10^9 Ohms. This unique feature allows them to be used near ESDS devices without inducing damaging electrostatic charges. In addition, when their liners are removed, they generate less than 50 volts. Also, when the tapes and labels are readjusted during the process or removed post process, the voltage generated will again be less than 50 volts.
Polyonics ESD-Safe films are rapidly becoming an important addition to electronics manufacturing especially in micro electronics where high power devices are also sensitive to low level voltages. The films are static dissipative with surface resistances of ≥10^6 and ≥10^9 Ohms. They can also be used as electrical and/or optical filters or barriers in electronic devices
