New ESD Smocks from SCS

New ESD Jackets 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.

Five Expensive Losses Due to Static Electricity

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 ESD Surface & Mat Cleaner from SCS

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!

Tips On Keeping a Clean and Productive Workstation

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.
