October 3, 2007 - Consistently maintaining surface resistivity of 106 to 109 W/square, StatNot(TM) XC stabilizes static electricity and conductivity. It combines with certain base materials to achieve critical material properties for specific application requirements, such as mechanical strength, moisture resistance, and creep resistance. Composite surface is suited for applications in electronic assembly, such as test fixtures and assembly work surfaces.

Press release date: August 28, 2007

POSTVILLE, IA - Norplex-Micarta, the leading manufacturer of high performance thermoset composites, announces a new static dissipative material, StatNot(TM) XC, which can be combined with existing Norplex-Micarta materials, such as the NP510A fiberglass epoxy composite. Developed in partnership with a leading specialty coating company, the StatNot XC composite surface consistently maintains a surface resistivity of 106 to 109 ohms per square, stabilizing static electricity and conductivity.

The StatNot XC composite surface is ideal for applications in the electronics assembly market, such as test fixtures and assembly work surfaces. The composite surface is combined with certain base materials to achieve critical material properties for specific application requirements, such as excellent mechanical strength, moisture resistance, and creep resistance. For instance, when StatNot XC is combined with the NP510A fiberglass epoxy, the finished material would feature the same coefficient of thermal expansion as circuit board material, minimizing the impact of changing temperatures in a manufacturing or testing facility.

In addition to electronics assembly, the StatNot XC composite surface is ideal in a variety of applications where static dissipation is imperative, such as the aerospace and oil & gas industries.

Norplex-Micarta test and certifies all StatNot XC materials to a surface resistivity range of 105 to 1010 ohms per square.
