Electrostatic discharge, or ESD, occurs when a non-conducting surface comes in contact with another, and then the two surfaces are separated causing a spark. This spark can destroy sensitive electronics or magnetic media, and can cause explosions or fires in flammable environments. This is why LAContainer has created the StatCons two-piece ESD Protective containers, to help you keep your parts protected and your workplace safe.
StatCons are a sturdy, two-piece plastic container that is made with either transparent blue static dissipative or opaque black conductive polypropylene. Both of these ESD inhibiting plastics are REACH and RoHS compliant and are a permanent anti-static material. This means the anti-static component will not leach out over time, making these containers reusable and even recyclable.
More technically the blue static dissipative containers have a surface resistivity of 108 to 1010 ohms per square and have a static decay rate from 5 KiloVolts to 50 Volts in 200 nanoseconds. Additionally these transparent blue FDA complaint containers are great for small electrical parts and circuit boards that are sensitive to small electronic shocks as they dissipate the electronic charges before it accumulates to dangerous levels
On the other hand, we have the Conductive Anti-Static option. This ESD inhibiting plastic has a surface resistivity between 103 to 106 ohms per square and have a static decay rate of 5 KiloVolts to 50 Volts within 200 nanoseconds. These opaque black containers are great for use in your ESD safe environments with explosives and other conductive settings that require a conductive non-metal container.
What sets our StatCons apart from the rest is their sturdy two-piece design. These containers are built strong so products are safe inside and also come with a detachable lid so you don’t have to worry about spilling or air born contaminants entering the container.
Along with our ESD Materials, StatCons are also stocked in a clear, non-ESD polypropylene option. This container offers the same sturdy polypropylene design without the additional ESD protective or conductive qualities.
Made in the USA, StatCons are available in 5 different sizes with diameters ranging from 2.2 inches to over 4 inches wide, with various depth sizes available. As always, we recommend testing our containers with your products and free samples may be requested through our website.
