Looking for anti static foam

Looking for anti static foam

Looking for anti static foam

The type of foam I'm looking for is the type where component leads can easily be pushed into/through. I know it's available because Digi-key and others use it on stuff I buy. Vendor's descriptors for their foams aren't very helpful on this attribute - I've ordered from 3 of them and none have been right.

RE: Looking for anti static foam

Do you want the pink foam or the green foam or the black foam?
Do you want sheets, or rolls?
Should we guess?

Telling us that you found three items that were 'not right' is of zero help to us, since we don't know what you define as 'right' in this instance.

RE: Looking for anti static foam

Color doesn't matter. Sheets or rolls are o.k. "Not right" means the pins did not easily go into or pass through the foam.

RE: Looking for anti static foam

You probably want the black stuff. I've never seen black ESD foam that wasn't intended for that exact purpose. But you never know...
