Ampacet, a premier global provider of specialized polymers, services and solutions, introduces PERMSTAT 020, a unique permanent electro-static dissipative solution designed for the manufacture of thermoformed styrenic trays for transportation of electronic devices.

In industrial environments, electrostatic discharge events (ESD) can cause severe problems with expensive consequences, especially when dealing with electronic components or circuits. Excessive heat can be released during an ESD event, melting or vaporizing the tiny parts in electrical circuits, causing devices to fail or malfunction.

Because many electronic devices are susceptible to low voltage ESD events, manufacturers must take measures to prevent ESD events throughout manufacturing, testing, transport and handling processes of such sensitive devices. Even for non-electronic goods, an ESD event can leave a mark, impairing the look of the product or its packaging.

PERMSTAT 020, in addition to its immediate, consistent and long-term electrostatic dissipative properties, helps to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) events during transport, protecting electronic components in styrenic trays from damage. PERMSTAT 020 offers very low surface resistivity, even when used in dry conditions and maintains excellent performance during the entire lifespan of the trays. PERMSTAT 020 provides a soft look and feel to the trays, and its natural ivory tone allows for colors and special effects to be applied to the end product.

PERMSTAT 020, an additive solution from Ampacet, provides immediate, consistent and long-term electrostatic dissipative properties and also helps to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) events during transport, protecting electronic components in styrenic trays from damage.
