The difference between Anti static foam and conductive foam

Total introduction about the anti static foam and conductive foam

Conductive/anti-static PE foam, is the polyethylene or modified polyethylene and conductive filler and anti static agent extrusion molding, after cross linking irradiation, high-temperature foaming, made it into the conductive/anti-static foam.

The surface resistance and volume resistance is 10^3-10^9, permanent conductive/anti-static features, smooth surface,environmental protection, easy to do the two times molding process, which is widely used in ESD related fields.

The Same characteristics:

  1. Conductive/anti-static foam properties permanent.
  2. Conductive/anti-static foam performance is not affected by environmental humidity.
  3. Foam Volume resistance and surface resistance value 10^3-10^9ω.
  4. Easy to two times forming process.

The differences:

Foam surface resistance differences:   Anti-static foam resistance of 10^6-10^11; conductive foam resistance of 10^3-10^6.

Different applications:

Due to the difference of the resistance value, conductive foam is far less than the static electricity of anti-static foam, while the electrostatic conductivity of sponge is far less than anti-static electrostatic voltage, but both can automatically release charge, conductive foam is more suitable for high electrostatic sensitive electronic products.
