Antistatic Labels


ESD-Safe™ Label Materials for PCB and Component Tracking

Standard labels and their liners can generate over 5,000 volts of static charge when separated. These charged insulators, if brought into proximity with ESD sensitive (ESDS) devices, can cause immediate or latent damage.

The ANSI/ESD S541 standard dictates that process required insulators, such as label, must have accumulated charges ‹125 volts when used within 1” of ESD sensitive devices.

Polyonics ESD-Safe thermal transfer printable polyimide and polyester (PET) label materials fully comply with the ANSI/ESD S541 requirements for process required insulators and are safe to use within ANSI/ESD S20.20 IEC 61340 control plans.

Polyonics family of ESD-Safe polyimide and PET label materials provide surface resistances ›114 and ‹1011 Ohms and low charging pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) and liners that generate ‹ 125 volts when separated.


Polyonics XF-781 and XF-782, 1 and 2 mil polyimide-based ESD-Safe label materials, are designed to remain dimensionally stable during exposed to the high temperatures and harsh chemicals, solders, fluxes, cleaners, etc. used in both lead-free and standard PCB manufacturing processes.

The label materials withstand process temperatures up to 617°F (325°C) for the white coated versions and 550°F (287°C) for the colored versions. They also provide superior abrasion resistances and pass the MIL-STD-202G, Notice 12, Method 215K and MIL-STD-883E, Notice 4, Method 2015.12 abrasion test methods.


Polyonics XF-446 is a 2 mil white ESD-Safe polyester material designed for topside PCB applications plus provides a cost effective solution for applications under 400°F (204°C). The XF-446 also passes the MIL-STD-202G, Notice 12, Method 215K and MIL-STD-883E, Notice 4, Method 2015.12 f abrasion test methods.


Polyonics ESD-Safe label materials have proven to help designers and manufacturers protect their most sensitive ESDS devices from electrostatic charges arising from both human contact (HBM) and charged devices (CDM) and have become valuable elements in the successful S20.20 ESD Control Plans of global electronics EMS’, ODMs, converters and OEMs.


Polyonics has worked with leading experts and consultants within the electronics community and ANSI/ESD S20.20 and S541 standards committees to develop a comprehensive white paper that not only defines the ESD problem and describes the certified industry test standards, but also offers guidance as to how best to reduce ESD risks associated with using process required insulators around static sensitive devices.In addition, comprehensive third party test data is also available for all Polyonics ESD-Safe materials.

Polyonics Introduces ANSI/ESD S20.20 Compliant ESD Labels and Masking Tapes
Polyonics ESD labels and masking tapes provide both static dissipative and low charging performances that comply with the ANSI/ESD S20.20 requirements for process required insulators. With surface resistances of greater than 104 and less than 1011 Ohms and accumulated charges of ‹125V they have proven to be effective tools in reducing electrostatic discharge in S20.20 control plans.


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.
