The tapes comply with the low charging and static dissipative requirements of ANSI/ ESD S20.20, IEC 61340 and JEDEC JESD 625B, produce less than 100 volts with liner removal—and again when removed post process—and include static dissipative top surfaces with surface resistances of >10^5 and < 10^9 Ohms.
