Description

More info on pink anti-static foam

A large number of the stock boxes and packaging products you can source from GWP Conductive, such as transit packs, component shippers and chip boxes, are all enhanced through the use of pink anti-static foam inserts.

Pink anti-static foam’s unique properties allow the foam to slowly dissipate electro-static charges that are potentially created by adjacent components, the component itself or even human handlers during the transit process.

Pink anti-static foam is also excellent for cushioning sensitive circuit boards, computer chips and other electronics from shock, impact, and vibration. This is why it is extensively used in Corstat® and other forms of anti static packaging.

How pink anti static foam works

Pink anti-Static foam is a polyurethane foam that is chemically enhanced with an anti-static agent (surfactant) and coloured with a pink dye for identification. It will not generate static charge when it rubs against itself and is usually used for single trip shipping.

Manufactured to include an anti-static additive, these pink foams give a surface conductivity that will reduce over time.

Glycerol Monostearate (GMS) is a commonly used additive (although other similar chemicals are also used), which is introduced during the extrusion phase of the material manufacture.

This additive will then slowly migrate to the edges of the foam before forming lines on the surface.

One end of the microscopic anti-static molecule protrudes from the material edge and draws in moisture from the ambient air to allow a conductive path for current to pass through.

This type of foam typically has a volume resistivity in the range of 1010 – 1012 ohms.cms and often has a surface resistivity that is higher still.

Due to the way in which the foam works, performance can be enhanced with increased atmospheric humidity.
