ABS-BAS material from LA Container is a high quality electrostatic dissipative (ESD) inhibiting material used to make a select number of our plastic containers. ESD inhibiting materials are used to make plastic containers that are made for sensitive electronic environments. These containers prevent the flow of static electricity from you to the contents of the container. Without these containers sensitive electronics can be destroyed while explosives like gunpowder could be ignited. To prevent a potentially fatal disaster in your workplace LA Container has created our ABS-BAS containers to help keep you safe.
ABS or Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, whew, you try saying that 3 times, is a common thermoplastic polymer that is made by polymerizing styrene and acrylonitrile in the presence of poly-butadiene. This combination makes this plastic much stronger than other similar plastics and is great for gamma radiation.
When mixed with our blue anti-static material we create a very sturdy, rigid and transparent ESD inhibiting material. This material is a permanent anti-static that is long term and will not leach out over time and is REACH, RoHS and FDA compliant. These qualities make these containers great for being re-used multiple times.
More technically our ABS-BAS material has a surface resistivity of 108 to 1010 ohms per square and has a static decay rate of 5 KillaVolts to 50 Volts in 200 nanoseconds.
Available in this material is our LA Boxx hinged lid container line. This ESD line comes in 5 different sizes in a transparent blue color for easy content viewing. The unique part about these small plastic containers is their sturdy hinged lid design, which keeps contents from being spilled while also keeping out dust and other containments. Comparably LA Boxx is a much more rigid and sturdy container option compared to other BAS polypropylene containers.
When looking at other ESD packaging, our LA Boxx containers are great in that very few other containers come with an attached lid. This lid allows these containers to be stacked for optimal organization, keeps out dust and dirt during long-term storage, protects you from spills in case of an accident and are easier and less costly to ship.
Our ABS-BAS containers are made in the USA and are great for the long term storage and transportation for items in industries like the Automotive, Electronic, Energy, Healthcare, Industrial, Optoelectronics, Microelectronics and the military to name a few.
As always, we recommend testing all of our containers with your products before mass purchasing to ensure the containers meet your specifications. For more info on this material please check out our website and watch the product video located below.
