Static Dissipative Performance

static dissipative tapes

The surface resistance spectrum in the top chart below shows materials in the range (105 to 109 Ohm) provide ideal dissipative performance. Static charge densities are limited by conductors and dissipative materials (lower chart below) while insulative materials are prone to causing ESD damage.

The potential for damage from electrostatic discharges depends on charge density and how charges are handled by the surfaces they reside on. Spots of charge (high charge densities) persist on insulative surfaces for long periods of time with little or no charge dissipation. Damaging static discharges can occur from insulative surfaces.

Conductive surfaces dissipate electrostatic charges rapidly which can cause electrical shorts and expose electrical components and devices to higher than expected voltages. Dissipative surfaces do not allow charge densities to build-up and safely dissipate them over their full surface area greatly reducing the risk of discharge and potential damage.
