Improved conductive foam from Sekisui Alveo

Lucerne, Switzerland-based maker of polyolefin foams, Sekisui Alveo, has announced an improved version of its Alveobloc conductive foam, Alveobloc NACO III.

Made from laminated foam sheets, with a uniform closed-cell structure to absorb impact or pressure, Alveobloc discharges electrical current and static charges generated during manufacture and transport; making it suitable for the transportation and protection of electronic components that are sensitive to electrostatic discharge. The manufacturer claims that the conductivity of Alveobloc remains constant, regardless of relative humidity, unlike competitive foams.

The foam is suitable for all converting processes including milling, punching or water-jet cutting without impeding its conductivity. And because it contains no silicone or inorganic fillers such as talc or chalk, it saves on the cleaning of processing tools.
