Conductive and static dissipative are two subdivisions of ESD properties. Understanding the difference between these two materials can help you decide which options are the best for your environment. Components are divided into these categories based on their surface resistance, which is the measure of how easily electron charges can travel across the material.
The Simco Ion Top Gun is a high-performance ionizing air gun. Balanced to 0+/-15V, its high blow-off force offers rapid static charge decay and efficient cleaning. The air gun’s .2-micron filter at its exit ensures the air is clean for the most sensitive products and environments.
Below is a list of vocabulary words that can guide you and your team when creating a safe environment for ESD sensitive equipment. Whether you are seasoned in best practices for ESD protection or new to the industry, these terms are important to know.
Standards for electrostatic discharge protection vary from company to company, but most businesses follow standards outlined by the ESDA, or the Electrostatic Discharge Association. Their standards represent the most comprehensive and updated protections in the industry. There is a huge variety of ESD products available, so when you consider creating best practices, keep ESDA standards in mind.
At Correct Products, we supply a huge selection of ESD products, as well as a comprehensive selection of cleanroom products and shipping supplies. From benches and mats to packaging and sealers, we carry all the popular products. We also carry some products you might not have imagined. These products might fill a need you didn’t know you had and offer more protection for sensitive equipment in your manufacturing environment. Consider the following useful tools you might not know we carry.
New ESD Smocks from SCS are designed to be anti-static, low tribocharging and will create a Faraday Cage around the operator to protect ESD sensitive devices from any static charges that may be present on the operator’s clothing. These smocks are available in blue and gray and range in sizes from XS – 6XL.
Static electricity is at the heart of hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of electronic device and component damage. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause significant damage when it comes to computer components, destroying or fatally damaging expensive devices.
ESD can permanently erase or alter magnetic media, burn holes in integrated circuits, and destroy circuit boards. In extreme cases, a buildup of static electricity can even cause fires and explosions, if a spark occurs in a combustible atmosphere. Many ESD events, however, occur without a visible spark yet still cause severe electronic destruction.
New Charge-Guard® Surface and Mat Cleaner from SCS is a non-toxic liquid cleaner used to remove dust, grease, grime, fingerprints and solder flux from ESD surfaces. This new surface and mat cleaner leaves no insulative residue, contains no alkali or ammonia and is non-flammable. Safe for use in production areas and for operator contact and provides a pleasant floral smell. Ideal for rubber vinyl and polyethylene table mats, as well as field service kits, tote boxes, computer screens and much more!
Title: Tips On Keeping a Clean and Productive Workstation
Keeping a clean and productive workstation is critical for the safety and efficiency of working around electrostatic discharge (ESD). Unlike employees in other industries, ESD workers have to account for more than just “normal” workplace messes. Instead of worrying about spilled coffee or lunch crumbs, ESD workers have to worry about compliance.
Correct Products is proud to be a leader in the Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) industry. Since our inception in 1983, we’ve acquired hundreds of top brands to bring our customers the best ESD protection products available. Here are the top ten brands currently available on our website.
