ABF-300™ ESD Control Film composite is a clear, adhesive-backed film product designed to control static electricity for a wide range of end uses. Suitable for application on smooth, flat, non-porous surfaces, it is a high tensile, high tear strength polyester film surfaced with clear, C-300™ static dissipative surfacing. This unique technology prevents charge generation on the film surface, thereby controlling particulate attraction and preventing electrostatic discharge (ESD) events. This performance is permanent and totally independent of humidity.

ABF-300 ESD Control Film is made with a high shear strength pressure sensitive adhesive for maximum performance and application versatility. The product exhibits excellent clarity, toughness, chemical resistance, surface hardness, mar resistance, dimensional stability, and UV light screening properties.

ABF-300 ESD Control Film resists tribocharging under all circumstances and cannot generate a charge when properly grounded. This makes it ideal for use in manufacturing and assembly operations for charge sensitive electronic components where it can help prevent both immediate and latent ESD caused defects. Since it resists charge build-up it does not attract contaminants, so it can also help prevent contamination-related rejects in ultra-clean manufacturing operations. Consequently, it is used in the semi-conductor, electronic, and micro-manufacturing, industries. It is ideally suited for application to glass cleanroom glazing to prevent surface charge generation.

 

Installation

  • ABF-300 ESD Control Film is applied to glass or any other smooth surface like a conventional adhesive-backed window film or security film. It can be cut to size with simple tools like utility knives and scissors. Note: Once the release film backing has been removed to expose the adhesive, the product can be easily ruined if it is allowed to fold over on itself causing adhesive to touch adhesive. Even if this contact is momentary, it is very unlikely that the film can be restored to its original flat condition.

Precautions:

  1. Polyester is a combustible thermoplastic. Avoid exposure to flame and excessive heat. Observe fire precautions appropriate for comparable forms of wood and paper.
  2. Clean with soap and water. Do not use abrasives. Avoid inappropriate contact with solvents.
