Anti-Static Foam Strip

Anti Static Polyethylene Foam Strips

Anti-Static Foam Strip

One of the material groups used in the production of strips included Polyethylene foams, which are generally manufactured in roll or block form, a group of very durable materials, which can be manufactured in a range of colours, densities and grades. for use in many different applications, including sealing, gap filling, cushioning, insulation and can be used to manufacture anti static polyethylene foam strips

One of the grades available from ASG is Anti Static Polyethylene, sometimes also called Ethafoam which is recognisable by its pink colour, manufactured in roll form in a range of thicknesses, from which anti static polyethylene foam strips can be cut.

Anti static foam strips are all manufactured by our highly skilled workforce using state of the art machinery, following our customers samples or drawings. We can produce Anti static foam strips using one of our many band saws, strippers, log cutters and even presses depending upon the size and quantity required. In-house production allows us to closely oversee the whole production process to ensure that we consistently produce high quality, competitively priced strips.

Our anti static foam strips are cut from rolls or sheets, which are manufactured in a range of standard thicknesses starting at 1.5mm, these can be supplied coated with a self adhesive backing or laminated to other materials, which can then be cut into strips from 4mm wide and in a choice of pre-cut lengths or in coils in lengths of up to 10meters long.

    What Are Anti-Static Foam Strip

    Foam strips are often taken for use in a similar manner to a gasket, whereby they are used to create a seal between uneven surfaces and fill irregularities, sometimes being referred to as sealing strip, gasket strip or isolation strip.

    Polyethylene foams are usually manufactured in roll or sheet form at various lengths and thicknesses, with Anti Static Polyethylene foam (Ethafoam) being one of many materials in this range. Anti static PE foam is a pink coloured (dyed), non-cross linked, closed cell, polyethylene, combined with an antistatic agent (surfactant), designed for the packaging and transportation of static sensitive electronic components and devices such as circuit boards, computer chips, etc as it doesn’t generate static charge when it rubs against itself or other surfaces.

    Why Use Anti-Static Foam Strip

    Rolls and sheets of Anti static foam strips  are used in the production of strips which can be used when transporting fragile or expensive products where protective packaging is vital in protecting the goods from damage.

    This is also true for electronic components which are static sensitive which can become unusable if stored or shipped within inadequate packaging where the foam or material used wouldn’t break down static charges caused by friction, human interaction or other items in the box. As with all polyethylene foams, Anti static PE foam offers protection from impact, moisture and corrosion, but with the benefit of the anti-static agents added to the raw compound.

    Alternative Packaging Foams

    • Convoluted or Eggbox Polyurethane
    • Pick & pluck Polyurethane
    • Static Dissipative Polyethylene
    • Anti-static Polyurethane
    • Plastazote foam

    Advantages Of Using Anti-Static Foam Strip

    Anti Static  foam strips can offer many advantages to customers and come with a lot of desirable properties including excellent strength and tear resistance, high shock absorbency, resistance to chemicals and grease and being closed cell doesn’t support mould and bacteria growth or moisture absorption.

    Pink Anti-static foam strips are available in many thicknesses which can be used to line boxes and cases or cut down into perfectly fitting profiles and case inserts in order to fully secure and protect the products from movement, impact and most importantly damage from static charge, which in return saves customers and end-users money on having to replace damaged products.

    Applications in which anti static foam strips can be used include packaging electrical and surgical equipment, insulation for glazing and HVAC and automotive insulation, etc.

    Benefits Of Using Anti-Static Foam Strip

    • Lightweight for lower transport costs
    • A soft material which offers cushioning
    • Can easily wrap around awkward shapes for added protection
    • Reduces cost of replacing damaged items
    • Closed cell material protects goods from moisture damage
    • Can be used in roll or sheet form, or cut into bespoke case inserts from better fit
