Menda HDPE Anti-Static Bottles

Anti-Static Bottle Uses in Electronics Manufacturing & Repair

Just as personnel, workstations, and floors must be properly equipped to deal with ESD, the tools, containers, and other devices used by those who work on electrically sensitive components must also meet the standards needed to prevent ESD-related issues.

To help meet the ESD prevention requirements for precision electronics manufacturing, Janel, Inc. offers several static dissipative bottles on sale until February 28th, 2013. Static dissipative bottles manufactured by Menda (a division of Desco) offer superior ESD protection and contamination control, and are perfect for a variety of dispensing and storage applications for both chemicals and solvents. While ESD preventative bottles from other companies often come in a single color and require labeling, Menda anti-static bottles are available in a variety of colors and are stamped with chemical identifying labels for easy identification. Labels available include “acetone” and “IPA”, and all are available in yellow, blue, green, and orange colors.

All Menda anti-static bottles that sells are made of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), which is extremely durable, and are embossed with the ESD protective symbol.  They contain no migratory additives, which helps to reduce the risk of contamination from the bottle.  Bottles are available as a stand-alone product, or with a variety of compatible pumps such as the pure-touch pump, the one-touch pump, and the take-along pump. 

Dissipative properties include: Rtt: 1 x 104 to <1 x 1011 ohms tested per ANSI/ESD STM11.12.

Anti-Static Bottle Uses in Salons & Beauty Shops

Aside from the ESD protective properties that are required for electronics manufacturers, the chemical containment safety applications of these bottles make them particularly useful in a variety of other industries and businesses as well, such as in beauty salons.

Potentially dangerous chemicals are used in salons on a daily basis, including:
  • •acetone (found in nail polish remover)
  • •acetonitrile (found in fingernail glue remover)
  • •butyl acetate (found in nail polish & nail polish remover)
  • •dibutyl phthalate (found in nail polish)
  • •ethyl acetate (found in nail polish, nail polish remover, & fingernail glue)
  • •ethyl methacrylate (found in artificial nail liquid)
  • •formaldehyde (found in nail polish & nail hardener)
  • •isopropyl acetate (found in nail polish & nail polish remover)
  • •methacrylic acid (found in nail primer)
  • •methyl methacrylate (found in artificial nail products)
  • •quaternary ammonium compounds (found in disinfectants)
  • •toluene (found in nail polish & fingernail glue)
Because these chemicals have the potential to cause a variety of health problems, it is imperative that they are stored in containers that are constructed to keep them safely isolated.  Menda HDPE bottles meet the rigorous standards to store these chemicals and keep both employees and customers safe.

Menda anti-static bottles are on sale at Janel Online until February 28th, 2013.
