Details

 

ESD polyimide tape is ideal for electronic components that require extra protection from static damage during assembly or repair. They help provide protection from electrically charged objects that cause electric shorts or dielectric breakdown. Tapes are available in both silicone and acrylic adhesives. Acrylic adhesive formulation eliminates the potential for silicone contamination which can interfere with subsequent bonding or conformal coating operations. The high temperature acrylic adhesive also has excellent chemical resistance and should be considered for demanding chemical masking applications.

ESD Polyimide Tape Applications

 

It is used in electrical, electronics, automotive, aerospace and medical industries where static dissipation is required. Can be for die cut to parts

PCB Masking

ESD polyimide tape is commonly used to mask gold contacts on PCBs or protecting sensitive components on circuit boards through manufacturing. It is effective for both hand-soldering and mass soldering applications, such as wave soldering. In the electronics industry, Kapton tape is applied to circuit boards before wave soldering to shield gold fingers from the solder material and prevent unwanted electrical connections. The tape is also easy to trim with a razor blade and can be used as a temporary dust cover for ports in devices.

Electronics Manufacturing

Due to its large range of temperature stability, and its electrical isolation ability, anti static polyimide tape is usually used in electronic manufacturing as an insulation and protection layer on electrostatic sensitive and fragile components.
