CAPLINQ offers a range of LINQSTAT-branded electrically conductive and antistatic plastic film. Antistatic plastics typically have a surface resistance less than 100,000 ohms-per-square. Electrically conductive plastics start with a surface resistivity of less than 10,000 ohm-per-square and can go as low as 10 ohms-per-square.
LINQSTAT™ VCF, MVCF- and XVCF-Series electrically conductive plastic sheeting is a black, carbon-filled, volume-conductive polyethylene film designed to provide both physical and static protection in numerous semiconductor, electronics, and Smartcard applications. The different grade of materials allows users to cover a wide range of possible applications.
The film and its conductivity are unaffected by humidity and age. The film is heat-sealable, flexible and offers exceptional abrasion resistance. The film gives good thermal stability and has outstanding chemical resistance. LINQSTAT has a standard thickness range from 65-200 micron (0.0025 inch to 0.008 inch) and roll lengths and widths vary depending on application and requirement.
We don't provide electrically conductive films with any adhesives at all. Films are all "as is" with no backings or coatings. On the same note we do not sell corona, flame or plasma pretreated rolls with enhanced surface energy.
We don't provide Polyethylene compatible adhesives. PE surface tension is very low so it is quite challenging to reach proper adhesion. Heat sealing is usually the best option but you can always consider corona, plasma or flame treating the films to achieve proper bonding with more standardized acrylic adhesives and processes.
We can assure you that the surface resistivity will always be lower than the stated property. We have various films ranging from 250 up to 200000 ohms/sq so pick the one closer to your needs. Linqstat is not meant for very narrow requirements.
The main difference between these product lines is the surface resistivity. XVCF are our most carbon loaded films and can go as low as 250 ohms/sq. We do have experimental options that can go as low as 50 ohms/sq but due to the complete change to the polymer structure the cost difference is so high (almost tenfold) that doesn't justify mass production.

3M manufacture a family of products made of black, volume conductive plastics under the tradename Velostat®. Though the tradename Velostat belongs to 3M, the product itself is not under patent. This means that other companies are allowed to manufacture similar products with no conflict with 3M. Please click here to read the article on generic vs brand-name products.
Similar to Velostat, CAPLINQ offers a line of volume-conductive plastics under its LINQSTAT brand name. LINQSTAT VCF is a black, carbon-loaded, electrically-conductive plastic. Unlike Velostat, CAPLINQ's product line is far more extensive, offering far more grades than 3M with different conductivity levels to give a better balance of price vs performance for your specific application. Compare the technical properties of your Velostat® Film to those found in the table below and on CAPLINQ's respective LINQSTAT Technical Datasheets.
Few plastic resins are inherently conductive, so it is necessary to modify the plastic in one way or another to make the plastics conductive. There are several ways to make a plastic conductive, among them the most important are as follows:
Electrically conductive plastics are carbon-filled and come in a range of surface resistances. These different conductive plastics come also in a range of thicknesses and widths. Our electrically conductive plastic comparison tool can help you choose the right conductive plastic for your application.
Electrically Conductive Plastic Technical Papers, Conductive Plastic Marketing Brochures, Conductive Plastic Technical Data Sheets, Conductive Plastic MSDS. If these are what you are looking for, then this is where you should be.
Everyday, people just like you have questions about electrically conductive plastics. At CAPLINQ, we try to help people just like you by blogging about conductive plastics. From conductive plastic pricing to harmonization codes to product part numbers and leadtimes. We try to post as much information as we can on our blogs, to help you find more relevant information about anti-static plastics.
