Many electrical components, including computer chips, electronic assemblies and circuit boards, can be damaged beyond repair by electrostatic discharge (ESD). Nefab has ESD experts and a complete range of shielding, conductive, insulating and dissipative products to design solutions that offer the required protection for use either inside or outside an electrostatic protected area (EPA).
ESD – ElectroStatic Discharge is a spark, a micro-lightning bolt which passes from one charged conductive surface to another conductive surface. This incredible rapid transfer of what had heretofore been a static (unmoving) charge can cause fires, explosions, EMI, RF, heat, light and even sound waves. It is this unseen, unfelt, unheard micro lightning spark that must be controlled.
To fully ensure that you have adequate performance against ESD you need a ESD Control Program, and ESD Protected Area (EPA) and ESD Protective Packaging. ESD Protective Packaging is a major step in an ESD Control Program and should, depending on the application, feature the following functions; Prevention of charge generation, Shielding against ESD and electrostatic fields, Mechanical protection, and Corrosion protection. It is important that ESD requirement for a specific product is known and followed in order to protects it against ESD discharge.
Nefab offers a wide range of static shielding and polyethylene bags for ESD protection.
We offer a wide range of dissapative foams to help protect products against Electric Static Discharge.
We offer ESD bubble wrap for surface protection, wrapping and cushioning sensitive products.
We carry Class 100 Clean Room desiccants ranging from 1/6 unit to 16 units
