PVC-300 Static Dissipative Plastic

PVC-300   Static Dissipative  Plastic
PVC-300 is a plastic sheet product designed to control static  electricity for a wide range of end uses. It is a high quality polyvinyl  chloride 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. PVC-300 offers  exceptional design versatility since it fabricates simply, is light in weight  and is available in large sheet sizes. It also exhibits excellent chemical  resistance, surface hardness, and mar resistance, plus superior flame spread  properties.

PVC-300 resists tribocharging 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 semiconductor, electronic, and micro-manufacturing industries. Typical  applications include; covers, windows, doors, and access panels for electronic  equipment, assembly machines and instruments; transparent partitions; process  equipment enclosures; and fabricated desiccators, cabinets, and boxes. The  product also has many general industrial uses, including protection for static  charge sensitive manufacturing devices and control of spark discharge in  explosive environments.

PVC-300 is easily fabricated into flat  surface configurations using the same equipment and fabrication techniques  generally employed with unsurfaced PVC sheet products. It should not be used for  heat formed bent configurations since the hard, cured C-300 surface is not  designed for heat bending. When solvent welding, it is necessary to remove the  C-300 surface mechanically to achieve a good bond. For more information on  fabrication refer to SciCron Technologies Technical Information Bulletin No.  SP-01.

Features and  Benefits
Cannot be tribocharged when properly grounded – Prevents build-up of  static charge and accumulation of harmful contamination. Electrostatic decay in less than 0.05 second per Federal Test Standard  101C, Method 4046.1 – Results in rapid static dissipation without arcing.Surface resistivity of 106 – 108 ohms per  square – Provides for ESD control.Permanence in static dissipation performance – Avoids cost of  application of temporary topical anti-stats. Humidity independent static charge control – Avoids inconvenience of  maintaining high levels of humidity and damage caused by such humidity. Advanced technology, uniform surface treatment – Avoids conductive  discontinuities (charged “hot spots”) often found with non-uniform temporary  topical anti-stats. Superior flame spread properties – Provides additional protection for  equipment in a fire. Hard, mar resistant, durable surface – C-300 surface, harder than the  base plastic, reduces risk of damage to the sheet surfaces. Superior chemical resistance – Reduces risk of solvent or chemical  surface damage.
