Anti Static PE Foam | Black Conductive Foam

Anti Static PE Foam (Anti-static Polyethylene Foam ) is black color closed cell ESD foam, It can be foam roll,  foam block ,  foam sheet , plank foam material, or foam insert different foam types to meet different electronic packaging requests, which is an excellent Anti Static Packing Foam in the electronics industry.

Anti Static PE foam

Anti Static PE foam is a physical cross linked polyethylene foam. it is compounding PE resin,conductive agent, black color agent, and other filler together, Anti-static foam will not generate static charge when it rubs against itself, but will happily eliminate a charge through itself to anything contact.

ESD Foam Raw material

Anti Static (ESD)Foam Chemical Component(%)

Component Weight Percentage(%) CAS no.
Polyethylene Resin 80% 24937-78-8
Conductive carbon 10% 1333-86-4
Commodity chemicals 5%
Other filler 5%

ESD foam Production process

  1. Granulate the raw material of PE resin,conductive carbon, AC blowing agents and other filler from Power to granule.
  2. 2.Mixed the above each material by the Extruder as certain percentages, make the master slices as different thickness, width, density,conductive or anti static types.
  3. Irradiating the master slices by the Electron acceleratorand make it cross-linking
  4. Foaming by the foaming oven to be the Anti Static foam roll products.

ESD Foam Features

  1. It promotes the rapid release of electrostatic without using the environmental humidity. anti-static performance is not affected by the environmental humidity.
  2. Permanent anti-static.
  3. Excellent electrical conductivity, surface resistance: 103-109 Ω.
  4. Buffer good performance: independent and fine pore closure.
  5. High temperature resistance: PE maximum temperature 100℃.
  6. Chemical resistance: resistant to organic solvents, acids, bases, etc.
  7.  No chemical corrosion: It has no corrosion to the components and packaging.
  8. Heat insulation, sound insulation, water absorption, moisture.
  9. Good processing performance, easy molding.
  10. Excellent ESD effect because its interior conductive lattice.
  11. Able to leaking static electricity rapidly and free of environmental humidity.
  12. Long time and even Permanent ESD duration.

  • Miscellaneous :Carpet underlays, shoes, foam floaters for effluent treatment plants and distilleries, luggage and leather bag linings, caps, Rakhees and jewelry boxes, leather jackets, floppy disks

Where to buy anti static foam?

To determine whether foam is conductive or anti-static, use a tester. If the tester shows a range of 10^3-10^5, the foam is conductive. If it shows a range of 10^6-10^9, it is anti-static.

  • If you're a factory that needs large and continuous amounts of anti-static PE foam, feel free to contact us for specific sizes according to your needs. We can provide suggestions and choose the appropriate type (anti-static foam, conductive foam, static dissipative foam) for your different products. You can even choose different types at once, and we'll tailor each product to your component sizes as requested, with high quality and competitive pricing.
  • If you're an individual looking for smaller quantities of foam, If you want to buy from us, we're happy to help. but we suggest you buy from a nearby anti-static foam supplier or from Amazon. This will save you time and money.

How to tell if foam is conductive or anti static ?

  • With Test tool of Surface resistance tester.

To determine the conductivity of foam, utilize a tester which displays a range of 10^3-10^5. This indicates the foam is conductive. Alternatively, if the range displayed is 10^6-10^9, then the foam is considered to be anti-static.

  • If no Test tool

A simple way to test if foam is conductive is to use it to directly contact your phone screen. If it functions similarly to your finger and works well on the touch screen, then it is conductive foam. If not, it may be anti-static foam, but this is not always the case. Please note that a surface resistance tester is the most accurate way to determine if foam is conductive or not.
