DESCRIPTION
PVC-300 and PVC-350 Static Dissipative PolyVinylChlorides are premium quality transparent polyvinylchloride (PVC) sheets have been surface coated with SciCron Technologies' STATICON® proprietary, clear, static dissipative surfacing. This unique technology imparts to the sheet surfaces superior resistance to charge generation and superior static decay performance. The result are sheet products which exhibit excellent control of both electrostatic discharge (ESD) and particulate attraction. These characteristics are permanent and totally independent of humidity.

STATIC DISSIPATIVE PVC GRADES
PVC-300 PolyVinylChloride (PVC)
PVC-300 is easily fabricated into flat surface configurations. It should not be used for heat-formed bent configurations. PVC-300 is manufactured from high quality transparent PVC sheet which resists buildup of harmful contaminants. Consequently, it is widely used in clean rooms by the semiconductor, electronic, micro-manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and biomedical industries. Applications include; transparent covers, windows, doors and access panels for electronic equipment, assembly machines, and instruments; fabricated dessicators, cabinets and boxes; partitions; and process instrumentation enclosures.

PVC-350 PolyVinylChloride (PVC)
PVC-350 is designed to accommodate heat bending when heat temperatures are carefully controlled. Typical applications include heat-formed covers, windows, doors and access panels for electronic equipment, machines and instruments, and formed enclosures including protection of static-sensitive devices and spark discharge control in explosive environments.

AVAILABILITY
PVC-300 and PVC-350 are available in standard full-size sheets of 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 inch thicknesses by 4 ft. wide by 8 ft. length. Cut-to-size pieces are available. Metric sheet thicknesses are available by custom quote only (minimums may apply).

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
  • Cannot be tribocharged when properly grounded - prevents static buildup
  • Electrostatic decay in less than 0.05 second per Federal Test Standard 101C, Method 4046.1 (rapid dissipation without arcing)
  • Ideal surface resistivity without need for ionizers or coatings
  • Permanence in static dissipation performance without periodic re-coating
  • Humidity-independent static charge control
  • Advanced technology, uniform surface treatment avoids "hot spots"
  • Superior fabrication characteristics offer simplified design and installation
  • Inherently light-weight material with large sheet availability
  • Superior chemical resistance with reduced risk of solvent attack
