Anti-Static Polycarbonate Sheet

Electrostatic Dissipative Polycarbonate Sheet (ESD panel)

Anti-Static Polycarbonate Sheet

Anti Static Polycarbonate sheets design to dissipate static on the transparent plastic sheet’s surface. This coating also offers anti-scratch, chemical resistant.

Protecting against electrostatic discharge (ESD) is crucial when handling sensitive electronic components and assemblies. ESD(anti static), short for electrostatic discharge, involves the sudden release of accumulated static electricity. If not properly managed, this occurrence can harm electronic parts.

Developed specifically to control static build-up. These transparent polycarbonate sheets are coated to shield against potentially dangerous static electricity. Lightweight and strong, these sheets are ideal for a wide variety of applications, including cases for electronics, high-voltage switches, and coverings for instrument gauges, solar rod housings, and thermometers. They are widely used in applications like access panels, static control shields, glove boxes, windows, and doors. The transparent coating on these sheets is perfectly suited for electrically conductive surfaces, reducing the potential for latent damage and product rejects due to static discharges.

This product is also commonly known by several other names, including:

  • ESD Plastic Sheet
  • Anti-scratch Polycarbonate Sheet
  • Static Dissipative Plastic
  • ESD Safe Plastic

    Applications of Anti-static Polycarbonate Sheet

    When it comes to electrical safety, anti-static polycarbonate is an ideal material. This type of polycarbonate has been specifically designed to resist the buildup of static electricity, which can be dangerous in certain circumstances. Anti-static polycarbonate is often used in electronic equipment and devices, as well as in areas where flammable materials are present.

    As a result, it can be used in the

    • Semi-Conductor
    • Electronic, And Micro-Manufacturing Industries
    • Access panels or cover or enclosure for electronic equipmentCovers
    • Clean room space partition
    • Doors, And Access Panels for Electronic Equipment
    • Assembly Machines, And Instruments
    • Transparent observation windows or doors
    • Conveyor Line Covers
    • Process Equipment Enclosures; And
    • Mini-Environment Glazing Panel

    Major Characteristics of Anti-static Polycarbonate Sheet

    • Static charge-resistant; prevents static buildup when properly grounded.
    • Dissipation of electrostatic charge in less than 0.05 seconds, as measured by Federal Test Standard 101C, Method 4046.1 (rapid dissipation without arcing).
    • No need for ionizers or coatings to achieve ideal surface resistivity.
    • Static dissipation effectiveness that doesn’t degrade over time or require recoating.
    • Control of static electricity independent of relative humidity.
    • Use of cutting-edge technology and consistent coating eliminates “hot spots.”
    • Above-average fabrication qualities simplify the design and installation process.
    • Naturally lightweight and widely available in sheet form.
    • Enhanced chemical stability and reduced susceptibility to solvent attack.

    Test Method for ESD Panels

    At Excelite, we employ stringent testing procedures to ensure our ESD Panels meet the highest industry standards. Here’s a glimpse into our robust testing process:

    Surface Resistivity Test: We begin by testing the surface resistivity of our ESD panels, a critical factor in determining their anti-static properties. This test provides us with the electrical resistance measurement across the surface of the panel.

    Electrostatic Discharge Test: We then subject our ESD panels to simulated electrostatic discharge events. This rigorous testing ensures the panels can effectively dissipate static charges without causing damage to the material or compromising its integrity.

    Impact and Abrasion Resistance Test: To ensure our ESD panels can withstand real-world use, we perform impact and abrasion resistance tests. These tests mimic the physical stress the panels may encounter during their lifespan.

    Chemical Resistance Test: Our panels are also tested for their resistance to various chemicals. This ensures they can maintain their anti-static properties even in environments where they might come into contact with different solvents or substances.

    Light Transmission Test: Finally, we verify the clarity of our panels by performing a light transmission test. This test measures the percentage of light that can pass through the material, ensuring it meets our high standards for visibility.

    Choosing The Right Panels

    Choosing the right material for your electronic device’s enclosure is crucial, and anti-static polycarbonate is an excellent option. It’s not only durable and impact-resistant but also provides superb protection against static electricity.

    Here are some of the key features of anti-static polycarbonate:

    Static Dissipative: With a surface resistance of 10^6 to 10^9 ohms, anti-static polycarbonate effectively dissipates static charge. This makes it an ideal material for electrical enclosures and devices susceptible to static damage.

    Impact Resistant: Polycarbonate is a robust material, and its anti-static variant is no exception. It can withstand high-impact forces, making it perfect for devices that may experience bumps or drops.

    Clear or Opaque: Available in both clear and opaque forms, anti-static polycarbonate allows you to select the level of visibility needed for your specific application.

    Easy to Machine: Unlike some other plastics, polycarbonate is relatively simple to machine. This ease of machining enables the creation of custom enclosures and parts.

    Dimensional Stability: Known for maintaining its shape over time, polycarbonate is ideal for applications requiring precise dimensions.

    High-Temperature Resistance: Capable of withstanding temperatures up to 120 degrees Celsius, anti-static polycarbonate is excellent for electronic enclosures.

    Good Chemical Resistance: Resistant to most chemicals, polycarbonate won’t easily degrade, making it suitable for enclosures that may come into contact with chemicals.

    Flammability Rating: With a UL94 V0 flammability rating, polycarbonate is highly resistant to ignition, adding an extra layer of safety in applications where fire risk is a concern.
