PS3 is an antistatic, transparent, pressure sensitive adhesive cover tape engineered to protect and fonfine surface mount components contained in our polystyrene carrier tapes.
Type PS3 Cover Tape is constructed in three layers, a 0.00092” polyester base film covered by a 0.00050” pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive, with a 0.00048” antistatic polyester film on the device side.
Type PS3 Cover Tape is provided splice-free on 3” inner diameter plastic cores.
Recommended Sealing Conditions
The detailed sealing parameters apply to single strike seal mode. Multi-strike, or overlap sealing, may require adjustment outside of these ranges.
|Application Method||Rolelr @ 2m/min|
Shelf Life and Storage
Type PS3 Pressure Sensitive Antistatic Cover Tape has a shelf life of 24 months from the date of manufacture when kept in recommended conditions. Store this product in its original packaging in a climate-controlled environment where temperatures do not exceed 40°C (104°F) and relative humidity is under 80%. Exceeding these recommended storage conditions could result in inconsistent product performance.
