Used in the electronic industry TBA Protective Solutions range of anti static products protects against harmful electro static discharge (ESD) into electrostatic sensitive devices.
ESD occurs when differently charged objects come together causing a spark and it is this spark, which may not be seen or heard, that causes damage to the very sensitive electronic devices used in many of today's electronic products.
ESD can cause dramatic harmful effects such as explosions in hazardous manufacturing areas such as coal mines, petrochemical industries and flour mills and can damage components in circuit boards causing failures and returns.
Electronics manufacturers protect their components by establishing static safe areas known as Electrostatic Discharge Protected Areas (EPA) which can be individual work stations or a complete factory. The area will ensure that all personnel are grounded and any static charge on ESD devices is controlled. Devices also need to be protected during handling, storage and shipping.
TBA manufacture a wealth of products to prevent static damage including anti static work stations, a comprehensive range of anti static, conductive storage boxes and bins in plastic or cardboard, matting, heel straps, grounding kits and static audits.
