Static Dissipative Plastic
PC-300™ Polycarbonate is a plastic sheet product designed to control static electricity for a wide range of end uses. It is a premium quality polycarbonate sheet which has been surfaced with SciCron Technologies proprietary, clear, C-300™ static dissipative surfacing. This unique technology prevents charge generation on the sheet surfaces, thereby controlling particulate attraction and preventing electrostatic discharge (ESD) events. This performance is permanent and totally independent of humidity. PC-300 Polycarbonate offers exceptional design versatility since it fabricates simply, is light in weight and is available in large sheet sizes. It also exhibits superior impact resistance and flame spread properties, plus excellent clarity, chemical resistance, and mar resistance.
PC-300 Polycarbonate resists tribo charging under all circumstances and cannot generate a charge when properly grounded. This makes it ideal for use in manufacturing and assembly operations for charge sensitive electronic components where it can help prevent both immediate and latent ESD caused defects. Since it resists charge build-up it does not attract contaminants, so it can also help prevent contamination-related rejects in ultra-clean manufacturing operations. Consequently, it is suitable for use in the semi-conductor, electronic, and micro-manufacturing industries. Typical applications include; guards, covers, windows, doors, and access panels for electronic equipment, assembly machines and instruments; conveyor line covers; transparent room partitions; process equipment enclosures; and mini-environment glazing panels. The product also has many general industrial uses, including protection for static charge sensitive manufacturing devices and control of spark discharge in explosive environments.
