Product Description

 

StatiCon® Glazing
PC-300 Polycarbonate for Cleanroom  Construction

 

Description
StatiCon®  Glazing is a family of transparent plastic sheet products designed to  control static electricity in cleanroom construction applications. PC-300  Polycarbonate, a member of this family, 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 the  cleanroom builder exceptional design versatility since it fabricates simply with  field tools, has 250 times greater impact resistance than tempered glass, is  less than half the weight of glass for the same thickness sheet, and is  available in large sheet sizes. It also exhibits superior flame spread  properties, plus excellent clarity, and chemical resistance.

Applications
PC-300 Polycarbonate 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 cleanrooms for the semiconductor, electronic, micro-manufacturing,  pharmaceutical, and bio-medical industries. It is useful for panels and  fabricated items which require high impact strength, or improved flame spread  properties, including; perimeter and door windows, transparent room partitions,  light weight floor-to-ceiling window walls, laminar flow air containment  screens, mini-environment glazing panels, pass-thru modules, and equipment  covers and enclosures.

Fabrication
PC-300 Polycarbonate is easily  fabricated into flat surface configurations using the same equipment and  fabrication techniques generally employed with unsurfaced polycarbonate 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. 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 – 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 charged “hot  spots” often found with non-uniform temporary topical anti-stats. Superior impact resistance – Provides exceptional shatter resistance  for safety. Superior flame spread properties – Provides additional protection for  equipment in a fire. Inherently light weight material with large sheet sizes – Allows much  greater design and installation flexibility than heavy, fragile, conventional  glazing. 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. Excellent clarity – Premium optical quality polycarbonate with clear  C-300 surface minimizes visible distortion.

Availability
PC-300 Polycarbonate
is available in  clear and transparent gray and bronze tints. Other colors are available by  special order.

PRECAUTIONS:
1. Polycarbonate plastic is a combustible  thermoplastic. Avoid exposure to flame and excessive heat. Observe fire  precautions appropriate for comparable forms of wood and paper.
2. For  building applications, comply with applicable code regulations.
3. Clean  with soap and water. Do not use abrasives. Avoid inappropriate contact with  solvents.
