** Level I : This is only used as a dust-preventative. It does not hold ESD properties, and does not provide physical protection. CCI does not stock this product, nor recommend it. For this reason, Level 1 is not considered one of "The 5 Levels of Plastic."
Level II : Level II ESD material is dissipative, and should only be used for short-term use / shipping. It is non-washable, and has a limited shelf life. However, this provides a very economical option for short term and shipping solutions.
Level III : Level III ESD material is dissipative, and boasts a long-term shelf life. It is water washable, and can have up to 1" depth of draw. This material type is very common at CCI.
Level IV : Level IV ESD material boasts all of the same properties s Level III. However, it is able to have a 3" depth of draw, making it more useable for large, tall components.
Level V : Level V ESD material is an inherently dissipative material, that meets cleanroom and medical requirements. It can be cleaned with IPA or water, and has a long-term shelf life.
Conductive : The last of "The 5 Levels of Plastic" is conductive material. Conductive material has permanent properties, and an unlimited shelf life. It has the deepest maximum depth of draw, and provides the strongest rigidity of the thermformed materials.
