The antistatic characteristics of ETHAFOAM AS foams are compounded into the foam with an internal additive, unlike other foams, which are simply treated with an antistatic topical coating. This is why ETHAFOAM AS foams retain effective antistatic properties for more than three years from the date of manufacture.
ETHAFOAM AS foams provides superior protection from shock, impact, abrasion and vibration, making them ideal for cushion packaging. ETHAFOAM AS foams are used in component, circuit board and materials-handling applications, protecting large and heavy parts more efficiently than other packaging materials. In sheet form, ETHAFOAM AS foams are used for interleaving and as antistatic cushioning wrap for smaller parts and components.
