Polyonics Issued First US Patent for ESD Coatings


Reading time ( words)

Polyonics®, a leader in high temperature and harsh environment label and tag materials, announced the issuance of their first ever US Patent for technology that improves the antistatic properties and durability of their electrostatic dissipative (ESD) coatings and label materials.

Developed by Polyonics’ coating experts, the invention, covered by US Patent No 10,689,548, will be used to design durable surface coatings and high temperature label materials that withstand harsh PCB processes while meeting all the standards for ESD applications. Label materials engineered with a highly durable top surface, low-charging label peel and a static dissipative face help eliminate at- or post-assembly product loss associated with ESD events and the additional costs due to label failure and rework.

This new technology is intended to work with their durable topcoats that meet ANSI/ESD S20.20 standards and ANSI/ ESD STM11.11 requirements for static dissipative label materials. In addition to being used where a low voltage charged and discharged energy is desired, including for printed circuit boards, electronic components and other electric charge-sensitive areas, it may be used for high temperature labels, such as those used in automotive and aeronautic applications.

Polyonics materials have remained at the forefront of PCB label technology for over 20 years through vigorous R&D programs. “This patent is just one example of our commitment to the advancement and continuous improvement of our distinctive chemistries so we can develop label materials that meet the critical functionality and durability requirements needed to withstand harsh PCB manufacturing processes,” said Jim Clemente, President and CEO of Polyonics.

Northrop Grumman: 3D Nanomaterials May Counter Gaps in Additive Supply Chain

10/22/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
The best technology is dead in the water if your domestic supply chain won’t support it. That was just one of the takeaways from Dr. Judy Dickson’s talk during the SMTA Additive Electronics TechXchange. In her presentation, titled “Advanced PWBs: A Collaboration Between Design, Operations, and the Supply Chain,” Dickson, a senior principal systems engineer at Northrop Grumman Mission Systems, laid out the many challenges her department faces in fielding HDI advanced packaging into the next decade. Most of these challenges are related to sourcing the necessary materials in the U.S.
