ESD Extruded Rolls
Perm-X-Stat (generic grade) and Med-X-Stat (medical grade) are newly engineered materials designed for ESD protection. These thermoformable PET based films maintain electrostatic discharge (ESD) after over 20 washings with IPA-water solutions. They provide resistance between 105 and 109 Ohms per square of resistance. These materials are humidity independent with low outgassing. This breakthrough provides OEM’s in the medical and electronics industries a clean, clear solution to their ESD requirements.
Suitable for scenarios when you need:
- protection of ESD sensitive equipment or medical components
- limited exposure to coatings
- reduced risk of cross contamination
- ability to wash material/tray
- ability to expose to aqueous solutions
Both Perm-X-stat and Med-X-stat are available in a wide array of colours and dimensions. Materials can be APET, RPET, or PETG based. For more information on the material visit product page here.
