EcoSonic ESD Paper is a static-dissipative, corrosion-inhibiting packaging paper for electrical and electronic items. Protects sensitive electronic metal items from static electricity buildup and corrosion. Eliminates static electricity buildup through use of an environmentally friendly coating made from soybean oil and coated on the surface of the paper. Is said to perform better on static half-life test (a test with an environment consisting of little or no humidity) than papers with conventional anti-stat coatings consisting of alkyl ammonium chlorides, typical ethoxylated amines, typical imidazolines, phosphated esters, and nonionic based antistat coatings. Is thermally stable at temperatures in excess of 392°F (200°C) and pH stable between 2 and 11 at temperatures in excess of 100°F (38°C) for several days. Conforms to MIL-PRF-81705D (Static Decay Rate and Surface Resistivity). Provides contact, vapor, and barrier phase corrosion inhibition for ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Conforms to MIL-PRF-3420H (vapor inhibiting ability) and is said to be effective against aggressive environments including humidity, SO2, H2S, and galvanic corrosion from dissimilar metals. Is free of nitrites, phosphates, silicates, and other hazardous compounds and is nontoxic, biodegradable, and fully recyclable/repulpable. Made from neutral natural kraft paper without using chlorine or other bleaching. Can be used to protect any material capable of being damaged by electrostatic discharge including printed circuit boards (PCBs), components and integrated circuits.
