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.

electronica Virtual 2020: Automotive Conference Keynotes

11/16/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
While not the same as battling with the traffic to catch the early flight to Munich, followed by an S-Bahn into the city and a crowded U-Bahn to the Messe, electronica 2020 went virtual. Pete Starkey details the Automotive Conference—an event he was particularly keen to attend.

Real Time with… SMTAI 2020: Technical Conference Review

10/06/2020 | Real Time with...SMTAI
SMTAI 2020, which was converted to a virtual event, took place from September 28–30. I attend every year, but since there was no keynote in the virtual format, I went straight to the technical conference. This event covered a broad range of topics related to everything in assembly. Over 90 technical presentations are available, but this report covers just some of the sessions I attended.

Real Stories of Applied Advanced Analytics in the Electronics Manufacturing Smart Factory

08/26/2020 | Derek Ong, BscEE, Keysight Technologies
The smart factory is starting to become a reality, as part of the overarching Industry 4.0 paradigm. With the technology enablers, such as industrial IoT (IIoT) and cloud computing, electronics manufacturing operational technology (OT) are on a converging course with traditional information technology (IT). Beyond the challenges of data acquisition and transformation, the true “proof in the pudding” is in the quick ROI from advanced analytics. We will share examples of successful, profitable implementation of applied machine learning (ML) in the electronics manufacturing line, where measurement science meets data science.
