ESD Foam

ESD foam forms part of ESD packaging solutions. The aim is to prevent static charges from accumulating on the surface of ESD-sensitive products. ESD foam products are inserted within boxes and can be used to cover and shield ESD-sensitive components, such as PCBs. Dissipative pink Shuntfoam, for example, is a closed-cell polyethylene foam. It does not contain carbon but offers sufficient conductivity to prevent ESD damage. It provides protection against physical shock, vibration, and abrasion in both in-plant and shipping handling.

Altico offers a complete range of dissipative foam including soft foam, polyethylene foam, conductive cushioning foam and pin-insertion foam. All options are available in standard or customised sizes.
