Tri-Laminate PS+C (Polystyrene with Carbon) Type D&I provides an economical alternative to type C material. This modified static dissipative polystyrene offers good strength and stability over time and temperature variations. Its uniform surface texture offers a consistently flat sealing area and is suitable for use with a wide variety of pocket designs.
Shelf Life and Storage
We recommend that Tri-Laminate PS+C carrier tapes be used within 5 years of the date of manufacture. Store this product in its original packaging in a climate-controlled environment where temperature ranges from 21°C +/- 17°C (70°F +/- 30°F). This product is not affected by humidity. Allow the product to stabilize at room temperature prior to use.
The Tri-Laminate PS+C series meets the EIA-481-D standard for camber that is not greater than 1mm in 250 linear millimeters. For 8mm to 24mm carrier tape in the level wind format, the camber will not be greater than 2mm in 250 linear millimeters.
