Linqstat Electrically Conductive and Antistatic Plastic Film

Applications For Conductive Plastic Films

Plas­tics are the lousy con­duc­tors! But did you know that they are used to insu­late the cables by plac­ing a thin film of met­al on to the plas­tic or by mix­ing the met­al into the poly­mer? Con­duc­tive plas­tic films offer the val­ue for appli­ca­tions that require ther­mal man­age­ment, pro­tec­tion from elec­tro­sta­t­ic charge, and dis­si­pa­tion of sta­t­ic charges.

Whether it is anti-sta­t­ic, EMI field­ing, sta­t­ic dis­si­pa­tive, or ESD pro­tec­tion, each com­pound (film or tape) offers the exact degree of resis­tiv­i­ty for your appli­ca­tion.

CAPLINQ offers an elec­tri­cal­ly con­duc­tive plas­tic film that offers a sur­face resis­tiv­i­ty from 200 ohms-per-square to less than 200,000 ohms per square. Our con­duc­tive films con­sist of the VCF, XVCF, and MVCF series.

The CAPLINQ LINQSTAT VCF-Series is a black car­bon-filled elec­tri­cal­ly con­duc­tive poly­eth­yl­ene film that is designed to offer both sta­t­ic and phys­i­cal pro­tec­tion in numer­ous appli­ca­tions. As a medi­um lev­el plas­tic, it is quite cost effec­tive while meet­ing the elec­tri­cal require­ments of mil­i­tary spec­i­fi­ca­tion MIL-PRF-81705D Type II and MIL-P-82646A.

The applications include-

  • Pro­tec­tion and stor­age of sta­t­ic-sen­si­tive com­po­nents
  • Inter­leaf between rolls of Smart­card mod­ules
  • Ground­ing Mats

But remem­ber that the VCF con­duc­tive plas­tic film series is sur­face con­duc­tive, not vol­ume con­duc­tive. Its easy-ground nature makes it ide­al for pack­ag­ing where elec­tro­sta­t­ic con­t­a­m­i­na­tion is a prob­lem. This series is also use­ful in the appli­ca­tions where the main aim is to bal­ance the cost.

The con­duc­tiv­i­ty of this film is unaf­fect­ed by both time and humid­i­ty.

Other applications of VCF Conductive Plastic Films

In the bag form, LINQSTAT VCF‑B Series, this elec­tri­cal­ly con­duc­tive plas­tic is used to pack sta­t­ic-sen­si­tive com­po­nents. And due to its anti­sta­t­ic prop­er­ties, it is also used in the ord­nance indus­try.

While in the tube form, LINQSTAT VCF‑T Series, this film is used in the elec­tri­cal com­po­nents and in auto­mat­ed pack­ag­ing lines.

More­over, it has var­i­ous advan­tages over the met­als like the fin­ished parts are lighter in weight and are eas­i­er to han­dle. Also, their fab­ri­ca­tion is eas­i­er and less cost­ly due to the elim­i­na­tion of the sec­ondary process­es.

The film is flex­i­ble, heat seal­able, and offers you incred­i­ble abra­sion resis­tance. Apart from this, it has good chem­i­cal resis­tance and excep­tion­al ther­mal sta­bil­i­ty.

With the stan­dard thick­ness rang­ing from 65μm to 200μm (0.0025” to 0.008”), it is avail­able in V‑fold and C‑fold ver­sions.
