CAPLINQ LINQSTAT™ VCF-Series is a black, carbon-filled, electrically conductive polyethylene plastic film designed to provide both physical and static protection. Having a surface resistance of < 200,000 ohm-cm, (2x105 Ω-cm) it offers medium-level static protection which means it effectively avoids accumulation of electric charge on itself and the products which it protects. Its easy-grounding nature makes it ideal for packaging where electrostatic contamination is a problem.
CAPLINQ LINQSTAT™ VCF-Series is useful in applications where the key is to balance cost versus performance. As a medium-level conductive plastic, the carbon-loading is such that it is low-enough to be cost-effective, while being high enough to meet the electrical requirements of military specification MIL-PRF-81705D Type II and MIL-P-82646A.
CAPLINQ LINQSTAT™ VCF-Series 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. It has a standard thickness range from 65μm to 200μm (0.0025” to 0.008”) and is available in sheeting, tubing, V-fold and C-fold versions. Roll lengths and widths vary depending on thickness and application.
In sheet form (LINQSTAT VCF-S Series), the conductive polyethylene is as an antistatic plastic. For more sensitive pressure sensor applications, CAPLINQ recommends LINQSTAT XVCF-Series, which is a more-conductive series of polyethylene plastics. As an antistatic packaging plastic, it is also used as a antistatic interleaver for Smartcard (micromodule) applications to separate subsequent layers of smartcard chips in micromodule production. Supplied in both 3 mil (0.075mm) and 4 mil (0.100mm) thin sheets, for this applications, it is slit into 35mm wide rolls in lengths as long as 400m or 500m.
In bag form (LINQSTAT VCF-B Series), the conductive plastic is used to pack static-sensitive components. For this purpose, the bags are supplied in small sizes in boxes of 100 bags per box. Because of its antistatic properties, it is also used in the ordnance industry in larger bag sizes.
In tube form (LINQSTAT VCF-T Series), the conductive plastic is used in the same way as in bag form, but allows the flexibility for the user to determine the length of the bags. As such it is often used for longer electrical components or in automated packaging lines.
