Low cost electrically conductive plastic LINQSTAT

CAPLINQ has final­ly acheived economies of scale and can now offer its cus­tomers super low prices on its LINQSTAT vol­ume con­duc­tive film — mak­ing it the high­est qauli­ty sup­pli­er of low coast elec­tri­cal­ly con­duc­tive plas­tic. Just this week, CAPLINQ added two new prod­ucts to its “stock items”, VCF-40036S/2 and VCF-80036S/2. These two prod­ucts are 4mil and 8mil thick respec­tive­ly, and are both 36″ wide and 150′ long.

***UPDATE 2016***
Since orig­i­nal­ly writ­ing this arti­cle in 2008, CAPLINQ has grown to be one of the world’s largest pro­duc­ers of low cost elec­tri­cal­ly con­duc­tive plas­tic. By using well-known, low-cost prac­tices and meth­ods, CAPLINQ is able to main­tain a very high lev­el of qual­i­ty, while keep­ing prices very low. Fur­ther­more, due to increased demand, CAPLINQ has expand­ed its elec­tri­cal­ly con­duc­tive plas­tic range, offer­ing even high con­duc­tiv­i­ty. We are con­tin­u­ing even today to push the enve­lope on con­duc­tiv­i­ty and expect to reach the 1ohm-cm tar­get for resis­tiv­i­ty that cus­tomers have been ask­ing for.

LINQSTAT™ VCF-Series is a 3M Velo­stat alter­na­tive. This alter­na­tive to Velo­stat mate­r­i­al is a black, car­bon-filled, vol­ume-con­duc­tive poly­eth­yl­ene film com­mon­ly used as a sta­t­ic con­trol mate­r­i­al in numer­ous semi­con­duc­tor, elec­tron­ics and Smart­card appli­ca­tions due to its easy-ground­ing nature. Exam­ples of these appli­ca­tions include elec­tri­cal­ly con­duc­tive bags of pro­tec­tive sleeves for sta­t­ic-sen­si­tive com­po­nents, ground­ing mats or as inter­leavers between rolls of Smart­card (chip­card) modules.

Low cost electrically conductive plastic in standard thickness and length

LINQSTAT has a stan­dard thick­ness range from 50 micron to 200 micron (0.002” to 0.008”) and is avail­able in sheet­ing, tub­ing and V‑fold ver­sions. Roll lengths and widths vary depend­ing on thick­ness and appli­ca­tion. Oth­er vari­a­tions may be available.
