The Semitron® ESd family of static dissipative products was designed by Quadrant for use where electrical discharge in operation is a problem. Semitron® is commonly used for sensitive electronic components including: integrated circuits, hard disk drives and circuit boards. Semitron® products are also an excellent choice for material handling applications and components in high speed electronic printing and reproducing equipment.
Semitron® ESd products are inherently dissipative and electrically stable unlike many other "dissipative" plastic shapes. Semitron® does not rely on atmospheric phenomena to activate, nor are surface treatments used to achieve dissipation. Static electricity is dissipated through Semitron® products as readily as it is dissipated along the surface. All Semitron® products dissipate 5 KV in less than 2 seconds per Mil-B-81705C.
Proven applications include:
Semitron® ESd 225 - Static Dissipative Acetal - ideal for fixturing used in the manufacturing of hard disk drives or for handling in-process silicon wafers. It is tan in color.
|Surface resistivity: 1010 -1012 / sq.||Thermal performance to 225°F (107°C)||Good wear resistance|
Semitron® ESd 410C - Static Dissipative PEI - ideal for handling integrated circuits through the test handler environment. Semitron® ESd 410C is black in color and opaque.
