Updat­ed Novem­ber 2016: Updat­ed with new prod­uct link information

CAPLINQ offers a line of vol­ume-con­duc­tive plas­tics under its LINQSTAT brand name. LINQSTAT VCF-41824B is a black, vol­ume-con­duc­tive drum lin­er that does not hold a sta­t­ic charge when ground­ed. This prod­uct is CAPLIN­Q’s equiv­a­lent to 3M Velo­stat 2014 (Part# 98–0798-0214–0). Note that nei­ther this site nor this prod­uct are relat­ed to 3M or Velostat.

It is most often used in the ord­nance indus­try (an indus­try that deals with mil­i­tary equip­ment, specif­i­cal­ly weapons and ammu­ni­tions) as waste con­tain­er lin­ers. It’s easy to under­stand that ignitable ammu­ni­tion and sta­t­ic charges don’t mix well, so these LINQSTAT bags are great for these applications.

Grant­ed, we do sell some of the LINQSTAT to pre­vent alien abduc­tions, but that’s just us doing our bit to save the plan­et. Oth­er appli­ca­tions for the vol­ume-con­duc­tive film are for elec­tron­ics and to pre­vent elec­tro mag­net­ic radi­a­tion (EMR), thought these are main­ly for the tub­ing and sheet­ing variations.

This size of drum lin­er (18in. x 24in. x 4 mil thick) is a 5 gal­lon bag. CAPLINQ also has the fol­low­ing stan­dard sizes available:

Part# Dimen­sions Vol­ume
LINQSTAT VCF-41824B 18″ x 24″ x 4mil (thick) 5 gal­lon
LINQSTAT VCF-42436B 24″ x 36″ x 4mil (thick) 20 gal­lon
LINQSTAT VCF-43036B 30″ x 36″ x 4mil (thick) 30 gal­lon

Oth­er sizes and thick­ness­es may be avail­able for cus­tom requests.

Pricing of LINQSTAT electrically conductive plastic

Of course, no sub­ject is com­plete with talk­ing about pric­ing. CAPLINQ gen­er­al­ly sells to larg­er OEM cus­tomers, so small vol­ume pric­ing is less com­pet­i­tive, but once we reach the 500 bag vol­umes, we start to get com­pet­i­tive quick­ly. And don’t for­get of course that we can sup­ply from both North Amer­i­ca (Ottawa, Cana­da) and Europe (Ams­ter­dam, Nether­lands), so you Euro­pean cus­tomers can smile.
