AC-350™ Acrylic (Bending Grade) Static Dissipative Plastic
B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply is a distributor and fabricator of Static Dissipative AC-350™ Acrylic (Bending Grade).
Static Dissipative AC-350™ Acrylic (Bending Grade) is a plastic sheet product designed to control static electricity for a wide range of end uses. Static Dissipative AC-350™ Acrylic (Bending Grade) is a premium quality acrylic sheet which has been coated with Static Dissipative AC-350™ Acrylic (Bending Grade) proprietary, clear, C-350™ static dissipative coating. 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. Static Dissipative AC-350™ Acrylic (Bending Grade) offers exceptional design versatility since it fabricates simply, is light in weight and is available in large sheet sizes. It also exhibits excellent optical properties and chemical resistance, and superior bending properties.
Static Dissipative AC-350 Acrylic (Bending Grade) 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. Static Dissipative AC-350 Acrylic (Bending Grade) is suitable for use in the semi-conductor, electronic, and micro-manufacturing industries. Applications include contoured panels and fabricated items which require heat forming or bending, such as; covers, windows, doors, and access panels for electronic equipment, machines and instruments; fabricated desiccators, cabinets, and boxes with heat bent parts; and formed process equipment enclosures. The product also has many general industrial uses, including protection for static charge sensitive manufacturing devices and control of spark discharge in explosive environments.
Static Dissipative AC-350 Acrylic (Bending Grade) 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 without the need for ionization.
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.
Excellent optical properties C-350 surface provides excellent clarity for optimum use of available light.
Superior chemical resistance Reduces risk of solvent or chemical surface damage.
Superior fabrication and bending characteristics. Provides maximum versatility and workability during part fabrication.
Static Dissipative AC-350 Acrylic, in cell cast type, is available in clear and a variety of standard transparent colors including tints which filter wave-lengths that can interfere with processing opera-tions. White translucent and colored opaque grades are also available. Continuously cast and extruded types are available in some sizes and thicknesses upon request.
Standard Dimensions (Nominal)
Thickness: 3mm (1/8"), 4.5mm (3/16"), 6mm (1/4"), 9mm (3/8"), 12mm (1/2") - Note: 9mm and 12mm - cell cast only.
Trim Fluids™ also used on glue lines in items fabricated from static dissipative sheets to provide electrical continuity across the glued joints.
