Static charges can lead to various problems and frequently occur on plastic surfaces. Our Clevios™ coating has been designed to produce surfaces with an antistatic, static dissipative, or conductive finish with precisely tunable sheet resistances (SR) in the range of 10E4 – 10E10 Ohm/sq.
ICs, display or sensor module packaging trays coated in conductive Clevios™ coating are immune to ESD (electrostatic discharge) damage of their sensitive electronic components. The coating also keeps away dust and other particles. Moreover, Clevios™ coatings are clear and transparent, allowing for visual inspection of parts and components in the packaging trays.
Useful in many ways
Clevios™ can also be used in non-electronics applications, such as cleanroom windows, instrument housings, specialty papers, photographic film, glass coating, construction and building materials, release coatings, labels and so on. Here, Clevios™ helps to prevent the build-up of static charges.
In explosion-proof environments, possible static charges occurring on parts or equipment can have disastrous consequences. Together with our customers we have successfully worked to find reliable solutions to this particular challenge. We look forward to discussing your individual requirements with you.
Applicable to most plastics
Many plastics can be coated with Clevios™, including polycarbonate (PC), polyethylene (PE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyamide (PA), and polypropylene (PP). We recommend surface activation by corona or plasma treatment prior to coating as it enhances adhesion to the substrate. Primer-coated substrates can also be a good choice.
