Industrial: Conductive/Static Dissipative Elastomeric Coatings
Performix® developed an electrostatic dissipative and conductive specialty coatings to meet the requirements of packaging and tools used in ESD-sensitive areas on a variety of substrates.
New protective coatings were needed to provide ESD protection on a variety of substrates but also eliminate FOD (foreign object damage) and remain permanent. Substrates included corrugated, fluted plastics, ABS, urethane foam and various metals.
A specialty coating was developed that can be applied to a variety of substrates in both production environments and on-site.
Not only did the new ESD coatings meet the challenge but additional benefits included:
- Reduced VOC’s significantly when compared to existing coating systems
- Non-flammable coating process allowing for greater worker safety in production environment
- Lower overall costs per unit
- Minimized permitting, storage, regulatory and insurance concerns while improving workplace conditions for employees when using water-based versions
Performix® products referenced in this case study may include the following Foam and Plastics and ESD Protective Coating products:
