Cover Tape > Type HSA Heat Activated Antistatic Cover Tape

Advantek Type HSA 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.



Type HSA™ Cover Tape is constructed in two layers, a polyester base film covered by a heat-activated adhesive coating layer. Both layers are antistatic to protect static sensitive devices.
