FP International: Anti-static air cushion film made on site
PILLOW PAK Anti-Static Air Cushion Film from FP International provides quality product protection and is said to be the first 24-in. wide anti-static interior packaging film that can be made on site.
PILLOW PAK cushioning film can be made quickly on-site, at 120 lineal ft./min. The film is durable and tough, so it won’t lose its cushioning integrity during shipment and through extended storage. The film allows air to move (or transfer) between cells to provide continuous, product cushioning and protection compare to standard bubble. One roll of PILLOW PAK Anti-Static film is 30 in. x 1,200 ft. and 7/8-in. in height. The entire roll can be inflated in only two minutes, and one pallet of film is the equivalent of one truckload of standard bubble.
Useful in demanding applications such as retail, electronics, medical, aerospace, health and beauty, auto and other packaging markets, PILLOW PAK Anti-Static Film blend technology meets or exceeds the Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) performance criteria of EIA-541, MIL-PRF-81705E, and the PPP-C-795D Class 2. These standards have two major ESD criteria: Static decay--less than two seconds; Surface resistivity--equal to or greater than 1.0 x 105 ohms/sq. but less than 1x1012 ohms/sq.
