Cover Tape > Type ABx™ Heat Activated Antistatic Cover Tape
Advantek Type ABx™ heat-activated antistatic cover tape is a high-quality, low-cost product developed to reduce the tendency to bond to areas other than the seal tracks. This condition is known as ‘wetting’ and causes unpredictable or unstable peel force as well as visual concerns.
- Formulated to prevent wetting
- Proven to perform with Advantek carrier tapes:
- Types C, X , V & T Static Dissipative Polystyrene
- Types K, L & O Homogenous Polystyrene
- Ideal package for surface mount components when used with:
- Complies with EIA-481 standards
Type ABx™ Cover Tape is constructed in two layers, a 0.0010” thick polyester base film covered by a 0.0011” thick heat-activated adhesive coating layer. Both layers are antistatic to protect static sensitive devices.
|Top Layer: 0.0010” Antistatic Polyester Base Film|
|Bottom Layer: 0.00111” Antistatic Adhesive Coating|
Type ABx™ Heat Activated Cover Tape is provided with 300, 500 and 1000 splice-free meters on a 3” inner diameter plastic core. Widths available include all EIA standard widths for carrier tapes between 8mm and 120mm. Additional widths may be available by special request.
