Engineered Tapes

ESD-Removable™ Tapes

When applying masking or double coated bonding tapes near ESD sensitive (ESDS) devices and/or components, it is important to consider ESD-Removable masking or bonding tapes. These tapes help reduce the effects of charged insulators coming in close proximity to ESDS devices and causing immediate or latent damage to the devices and/or circuits.

The Polyonics family of ESD-removable masking tapes comply with the ANSI/ESD S541 standard for accumulated charges on process required insulators, such as masking tapes. The standard dictates that tapes, when used within 1” of ESDS devices, have accumulated charges less than 125 volts and 2000 volts if used within 12” of an ESDS device.

The Polyonics family of acrylic and silicone based ESD-removable masking and bonding tapes provide this low charging (less than 125 v) via their low charging pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) both when their liners are removal and if-and-when the tapes are removed from the PCB surface post process.

Polyonics Introduces Engineered Tapes and Label Materials That Protect Static Sensitive Optoelectronic Devices from Harmful ESD Events
Polyonics makes antistatic tapes and label materials with static dissipative surface resistances and low tribocharging pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) that allow them to protect static sensitive optoelectronic devices such as LEDs, photo and laser diodes, solar cells, etc. and help prevent harmful electrostatic discharge (ESD) events.

Polyonics Announces Expanded Antistatic Tape Product Line:
New Materials, Thinner Constructions, New Coatings and New PSAs Polyonics has recently expanded its antistatic tape and film portfolio to include a wider variety of single and double coated amber and black polyimide and clear and white polyester (PET) constructions. New thinner 40 µm (1.6 mil) antistatic tapes and 13 µm (0.5 mil) antistatic films have also been added for space constrained applications with specially developed matte black coatings available to match specific color and gloss specifications.

Polyonics Introduces High Temperature Bonding Systems for Static Sensitive Devices
Westmoreland, NH (PRWEB) —Polyonics has introduced a series of double-coated tapes that are designed to protect SSD (static sensitive devices). The tapes are well suited for SMT (surface mount technology) applications and provide a strong, thin conformal bond line while generating a very low peel voltage.
