Antistatic Coatings

IndustrialThe growing use of electronics in many markets is driving increased demand for ESD protection during electronics production, packaging, shipment and use. Because of miniaturization, electronics are increasingly sensitive to particulate contamination and must be protected from lower levels of static charge. Conductive polymers in trays, conveyor belts, and cases for electronic circuit production prevent static discharge that could destroy sensitive circuits. Even in packaging of electronics, more reliable ESD protection offered by permanent DiStat products is desired to protect the relatively expensive packaged product during shipping and handling.
