Our friends at Simco-Ion sent us this brilliant guide to ESD cleanrooms design, principles, and other considerations. Download the PDF you’ll find case studies and technical information about how static charges influence particle retention and impact manufacturing outcomes in controlled environments. Below we’ve highlighted important ideas in relation to medical device cleanrooms and provide additional resources.
Genuine linoleum is a 100% biodegradable material composed of linseed oil, pine resin, cork, wood, pigment, and limestone. Depending on material construction, it is known to have antistatic properties which mitigate some triboelectric charges that cause zaps and static buildup.
Dual Wire ESD Monitors and Wrist Straps – vs Single Wire – What’s the Difference? Reposted from Our Friends at SCS-Static-Control Solutions Dual wire ESD
Are Anti-Static Bags Conductive? What’s the Difference Between Anti-Static and Static Shielding Bags?
Standard plastic bags, commonly made of polyethylene, fail to protect ESD-sensitive devices from the flow of electrically charged objects caused by contact, and electrical short, or dielectric breakdown. ESD is not only a silent killer in high-tech electronics manufacturing and production, but also during hobbyist projects or small-batch electronics repair. Electronic devices, IC components, and other ESD-sensitive devices are not safe from ESD events when stored, handled, or transported outside an ESD safe environment inside an anti-static bag.
Here’s a comparison of an American made BenchPro ESD laminate workstation versus a knock-off import.
