Our Solutions - Static Control

ESD is the sudden and momentary electric current that flows between two objects at different electrical potentials caused by direct contact or induced by an electrostatic field. These currents may cause damage to electronic equipment.


ESD is a serious issue in solid state electronics, such as integrated circuits. Integrated circuits are made from semiconductor materials such as silicon and insulating materials such as silicon dioxide. Either of these materials can suffer permanent damage when subjected to high voltages.


Therefore, Macro Plastic is able to offer a range of Electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection films and sheets.


In order to prevent ESD, all our films and sheets solution at Macro Plastic undergoes strict safety and static control compliances before being delivered to our customers.

  • They are strong, resist punctures and holds components in place to prevent damage
  • They are brilliantly clear to ensure easy inspection of the products they hold
  • They comply with safety standards, and each roll is certified before any delivery
  • They are non-contaminated and nontoxic
  • They contain no ozone depleting substances or heavy metal stabilizer
  • They have excellent polycarbonates compatibility
  • They create no detectable contact corrosive matter


Here at Macro Plastic we provide 2 forms of Static Control solutions:


Coating is a process that is done to the surface of the film/sheet to improve or administer special characteristics to the film/sheet. Coated films and sheets are:

  • Surface Resistivity (SR) is independent of the Relative Humidity (RH)
  • Clearer in transparency
  • Less durable primarily for single usage


Impregnation is a process administered during the extrusion process. The uniformity of the impregnation is dependent on the compounding efficiency. Impregnated films and sheets are:

  • Reusable & highly durable
  • Slightly cloudy in appearance
  • Surface Resistivity (SR) may slightly vary with the Relative Humidity (RH)
