A new material for permanent electrostatic discharge (ESD) and corrosion protection has been developed. This material, called Reactive Polymer, consists of a blend of polymer resin (eg. polyethylene, polypropylene, ABS, PVC) with stable solid-state additives. It can be formed into bags, tubing, sheets, bubble-pack, foam, trays, IC carriers, tape-and-reel, etc. ESD and corrosion protection is provided for components, circuit packs, assembled systems, etc. Protection from corrosion or tarnish by atmospheric H2S, COS, and HCI is provided for many forms of silver, copper, and copper alloys such as the stock metals, electrical connectors, bus bars for electric power transmission, and electroplated metals.
