PVC-350™ (Bending Grade) Static Dissipative
B.I.R.S. Machine & Suppy is a distributor and fabricator of Static Dissipative PVC-350™ (Bending Grade) is a plastic sheet.
Static Dissipative PVC-350™ (Bending Grade) is a plastic sheet product designed to control static electricity for a wide range of end uses. Static Dissipative PVC-350™ is a high quality polyvinyl chloride sheet which has been coated with C-350™ static dissipative clear coating (Bending Grade). 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 PVC-350 (Bending Grade) offers exceptional design versatility since it fabricates simply, is light in weight and is available in large sheet sizes. Static Dissipative PVC-350™ (Bending Grade) also exhibits excellent chemical resistance, plus superior flame spread and bending characteristics.
Static Dissipative PVC-350™ (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 Static Dissipative PVC-350™ (Bending Grade) 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 PVC-350™(Bending Grade) is suitable for use in the semi-conductor, electronic, and micro-manufacturing industries. Typical applications include contoured panels and fabricated items which require heat 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. Static Dissipative PVC-350™(Bending Grade) also has many general industrial uses, including protection for static charge sensitive manufacturing devices and control of spark discharge in explosive environments.
Static Dissipative PVC-350™ (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 4046.1Results 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.
Superior flame spread properties. Provides additional protection for equipment in a fire.
Superior fabrication and bending characteristics. Provides maximum versatility and workability during part fabrication.
Superior chemical resistance. Reduces risk of solvent or chemical surface damage.
Static Dissipative PVC-350™ (Bending Grade) is available in clear, opaque white and opaque gray colors.
