Semitron® Esd | Product Index

The Semitron® ESd family of static dissipative plastics was designed for use where electrical discharge in operation is a problem.

They are commonly used for sensitive electronic components including: integrated circuits, hard disk drives and circuit boards. Semitron® products are also an excellent choice for material handling applications, and components in high speed electronic printing and reproducing equipment.

Semitron® ESd products are inherently dissipative and electrically stable unlike many other “dissipative” plastic shapes. They do not rely on atmospheric phenomena to activate, nor are surface treatments used to achieve dissipation. Static electricity is dissipated through these products as readily as it is dissipated along the surface.

All of these Semitron® ESd products dissipate 5 KV in less than 2 seconds per Mil-B-81705C

Main properties of our range of Semitron® ESD sheet, rod and tube are:

  • Permanently static dissipative
  • Dissipate static charges (5 kV) in less than 2 seconds per mil-B-81705 C
  • No metals or graphite / carbon powder used
