Conductive Materials

As one of the largest foam fabricators in North America, UFP Technologies has access to a variety of specialty materials that are Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protective. We offer a range of anti-static, conductive and dissipative materials.

We can recommend the proper foam, plastic, film or specialty material to meet your requirements while also providing the necessary protection.

Anti-static
A grade of foam that prevents or inhibits the build up of static electricity, primarily used for the protection and packaging of sensitive electronic components and products. This offers a lower range of electrical resistance than static dissipative and conductive foams.

Conductive
A grade of foam that offers the highest level of electrical resistance, and provides excellent EMI shielding. Conductive refers to the material's ability to drain away charges instantly.

Static Dissipative
A grade of foam in the middle range of electrical resistance greater than anti-static and lower than conductive.
