Anti-static foam is a foam product designed to dissipate and keep electrostatic discharge (ESD) at bay. Combining their anti-static behavior with the cushioning, vibration dampening and shock resistant behavior of all foam, anti-static foam products are perfect for the storing and transporting of electronics. They also assist in wrapping, bracing and blocking.
Anti-static foam products do not only protect electronics from outside static. Rather, they also protect surroundings from static coming from the electronics themselves. Some of the many electronic products anti-static foam cushion include: computer chips, circuit boards, assemblies, laptops and more.
Anti-static foam comes in many forms. Some of the many types include: black conductive foam, pink anti-static foam, memory foam sheet, anti-static bubble wrap and anti-static rolls. These varieties allow customers to block ESD whether their product is irregularly shaped, extremely large, extremely small or anything else.
Some of the most common materials from manufacturers make anti-static foam include: high density polyethylene (HDPE), low density polyurethane and high density polyurethane. Anti-static HDPE foam is closed cell, rigid and dense. It works well as an insert liner. Low density and high density anti-static polyurethane foams are soft, open cell foams that works best as a cushion.
Foam fabricators produce anti-static foam products in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, thicknesses, colors and textures. Common textures include egg carton and pick n pluck. Anti-static foam is a great investment. Not only is it versatile, but it is affordable. It generally lasts between five and eight years.
