Description

More info on conductive foam

Conductive foam is a polyethylene foam filled with carbon (as are all black ESD foams), giving it its conductive properties and colour. Conductive foam is designed for repeat use and will act like a Faraday cage when an item is fully enclosed within it.

Your business can take advantage of GWP’s expertise in the creation of conductive foam inserts to work alongside the wide selection of conductive and ESD safe packaging, handling and transit products.

The conductive foams you can source help to minimise the effects of electrostatic discharge on sensitive electronic equipment.

With years of expertise in the fabrication of foam inserts and a modern design and production facility including the latest CAD software and CNC machining, you can also benefit from the design and manufacture of a conductive foam solution that will offer the optimum level of protection regardless of your end application.

How LD / HD conductive foam works

Conductive foam is similar to standard packaging foams but with one crucial difference – the addition of carbon to the polymer mix during the manufacturing process to provide a high level of conductivity.

This allows any electric current to pass through the cell structure of the foam and away from the component.

Generally, the foam will have permanent conductive performance, meaning it is ideal for multi-trip packaging and in-plant handling applications. Its performance isn’t affected by atmospheric conditions.

This ESD safe material will typically have a surface resistivity of fewer than 104 ohms/sq. and a volume resistivity of fewer than 104 ohms/cms, which offers a quicker transfer of any static charge to a grounding source or adjacent conductive material.

Key benefits of conductive grade foam at a glance

  • Permanent ESD protection
  • Ideal for multi trip, storage and in plant handling applications
  • Quick transfer of static charge
  • Less than 104 ohms surface / volume resistivity
  • Available die cut, CNC routed or water jet cut
  • Perfect for customisation of our stock conductive ranges
  • Expert in house foam designers and engineers
  • Additional cushioning protection for sensitive items
