XVCF-3S500 | LINQSTAT 3 mil - 500 Ω/sq Conductive Film
- 3 mil - 76um - 0.07mm
- ±500 ohms/sq Surface resistivity
- ±3.5 ohms-cm Volume resistivity
LINQSTAT™ XVCF-3S500 is a highly conductive conductive polyethylene film similar to our standard VCF-Series film but with a higher electrically conductive carbon loading and a denser polymer mix. Having a surface resistance of ±500 ohms/sq, this extra loading makes the XVCF-Series more conductive than our standard film and allows it to be used in applications that require a lower resistivity. In addition, the film is volume conductive, claiming a mere 3.5 ohms-cm volume resistivity.
LINQSTAT™ XVCF-3S500 conductive films are thin (0.07mm or 3 mil), lightweight and relatively inert. Furthermore, they are well suited for applications requiring electrochemical reactions, high conductivity or charge storage including but not limited to electrodes (ECG, TENS, Defibrillation and Iontophoresis), batteries (flat-cell zinc/manganese dioxide (MnO2), Lithium Ion and Lithium polymer), wearable electronics and digital whiteboards.
LINQSTAT™ XVCF-3S500 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 of 76µm (3 mil) and is available in various lengths and widths upon request. The standard core size is 3" but some widths are also available with a 6" core.
| Specific Gravity
Specific gravity (SG) is the ratio of the density of a substance to the density of a reference substance; equivalently, it is the ratio of the mass of a substance to the mass of a reference substance for the same given volume.
For liquids, the reference substance is almost always water (1), while for gases, it is air (1.18) at room temperature. Specific gravity is unitless.
| Volume Resistivity
Volume resistivity, also called volume resistance, bulk resistance or bulk resistivity is a thickness dependent measurement of the resistivity of a material perpendicular to the plane of the surface.
| RoHS Compliant
RoHS is a product level compliance based on a European Union Directive which restricts the Use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS).
Products compliant with this directive do not exceed the allowable amounts of the following restricted materials: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), with some limited exemptions
- Heat sealing time: 0.5-3.5 sec
- Heat sealing pressure: 30-70 psi
- Heat sealing temperature: 135 °C - 190°C
Given its low surface resistance, LINQSTAT XVCF films have been successfully used as a pressure sensor making them useful for applications that require more conductivity to be able to detect more subtle pressure differences.
- ECG electrodes
- TENS electrodes
- Defibrillation electrodes
- Digital white boards
- Lithium ion / polymer battery
- Flat-cell MnO2 battery
Due to its low-resistivity and its resistance to a range of chemicals and alcohols, these films are suitable for use in electrodes. Their matte finish allows them to be printed on, and the low material thickness makes them flexible to adapt well to a range of contours.
