Pink VS Black Foams | ESD Packing Foam Sheets

Pink VS Black Foams both are anti static PE Foam with perfect shockproof ability and no odor. As the ESD packing foam sheets, It can be made into various foam sheets as requirements,widely use in the packing of ESD or Anti Static sensitive components.

Pink vs Black foams

ESD Pink VS Black foam helps resolving many problems

  • It is a high performance cushioning foam suitable for packaging;
  • It also provides anti-static or conductive properties important to sensitive electronic components.
  • It’s lightweight ,clean and recyclable products, instead of some heavy and odorous.
  • The foam provides controlled, dissipation of electro-static charges released from other neighboring materials and personnel during handling, assembly and shipment of the product.
  • Our anti-static feature outperforms competitive products, in providing long term reliability of anti-static performance and physical product protection.

The difference between Anti static pink foam and black foam

When talking about the difference between Anti static pink foam and black foam, do you know about the details?

The differences are huge, although one is not necessarily better than the other. Which one you choose depends on what your needs are.

Pink Anti Static Foam & Static dissipative foam

  • Static dissipative polyethylene<1011 ohms
  • Antistatic low charging – minimizing electrostatic charge generation
  • Provides protection from physical shock during handling, packaging, shipping, and storage of ESD sensitive devices
  • Ideal for short term use
  • Easy to adapt for custom uses by die-cutting, laminating, etc.
  • Non-contaminating, non-corrosive, and non-sloughing
  • Economical

Usage Consideration

  • Not recommend for long term applications
  • Whenuse for around half an year, the electrical properties will disappear,become insulation.

More foam details,please refer to my before articles ,ESD EPE Foam Pink

Black Conductive Foam & Anti Static Foam

  • Conductive polyethylenefoam 1 x 103 to < 1 x 106 ohms and 1 x 106 to < 1 x 109 per ANSI/ESD STM11.11.
  • Low density conductive polyethylene foam.
  • Permanently Conductiveor Anti static types ; will not lose electrical properties – can be used in applications where permanent ESD properties are required.
  • Provides protection from physical shock during handling, packaging, shipping, and storage of ESD sensitive devices.
  • Foam will not discolor over time.

Usage Consideration

  • Better value for long term applications
  • Recommended in applications where conductive or Static Dissipative properties are required

Pink VS Black Foams Applications

  • Communications
  • Handhold Electronics
  • Portable data acquisition devices
  • Medical devices
  • Displays (LCD , LED and PDP)
  • Antennas and telecommunications
  • LED lighting
  • Asset tracking
  • Industrial equipment

While each foam is made of the same material (polyethylene), they have very distinct differences.

Which one you use will depend on the application of the foam, how long you intend to use the foam,  and even cost considerations.
