The ESD Static Control Swabs are engineered to eliminate damage from static electricity. Static dissipative (ESD Safe) foam tip swab applicators with static dissipative polypropylene handles. The handles of these swabs will dissipate 99% of a 5,000 volt (5 KV) charge in less than 2 seconds. The static dissipative plastic alloy used to make the handles is inherently static dissipative. It contains no additives, coatings or surfactants so it functions at any level of humidity and it is very resistant to solvents, even acetone. Static Dissipative swabs utilize tip to toe ESD safe construction. ESD safe swab applicators are ideal for use in electronic assembly, as a medical device or even for applying solutions or for removing particulates.
