Need ESD Protection? – Don’t Overlook the Label

Electrostatic discharge, commonly referred to as ESD, can cause device failure at the point of manufacture, assembly or in the hands of the consumer. This affects production yield, product reliability and profitability in the electronics market.

Moisture, temperature, materials and movement combine to create ESD which can damage printed circuit boards (PCB) and other sensitive equipment. The damage  can be so minor that the chip will appear to function normally in some cases but not others.

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD),Durable label materials are designed to withstand PC board manufacturing processes and conform to REACH, RoHS, and HALOGEN FREE requirements of the electronics industry.

As electronic devices become smaller and more complex, the more sensitive to ESD they become.

Labels For ESD Protection

Electronic manufacturers and assemblers are labeling more products for identification, tracking WIP, traceability for recall management, quality control, warranties, and compliance mandates.

It’s increasingly more important to use label materials designed to address two major ESD concerns that standard labels can present.

  1. First, they eliminate the charge generated when the label is removed from the liner that can discharge and destroy sensitive components during application.
  2. Second, after the label has been applied and during the label life, the label has been designed to prevent significant charge build-up on the label surface which can result in a static discharge event.

Every level of labeling products specifically for the electronic industry can play a role in offering anti-static protection:

  • Electrostatic dissipative, RoHS compliant materials
  • Humidity and temperature indicating inks
  • Anti-static adhesives

If you are in the electronics market, you’ll want to read our free ebook “Labeling For Electronics.” This informative guide will provide a basic understanding of what barcoding can do for your business, what kinds of labels are available, even ways to make your label printing more productive. Download your copy here.

Durable label materials are designed to withstand PC board manufacturing processes and conform to REACH, RoHS, and HALOGEN FREE requirements of the electronics industry. If you’ve been affected by the shortage of Tedlar® (polyvinyl fluoride) for your labels or use Kapton® (polyimide) for your labeling, check out a new material that just may be what your looking for to save time and money.

Do you have labels that aren’t working for you? Have you looked at your labeling process to be sure you are getting the most value and productivity out of your labeling systems? Share with us by leaving your comment or call (817) 626-7779 to discuss your labeling challenges and projects.

    Hello i am Sandra, component engineer from Kitron Kaunas, i am looking for a adhesive, esd protected label, in tape&reel packaging ( or something else,but possible to use with a Pick and Place machine). Dimensions needed: circular label, 0.8-1mm tkickness, inside diameter 0.5mm, outside diameter 2mm. Label should heat resistant.
