3M™ Polycarbonate Carrier 3000 is a continuous, splice free polycarbonate carrier tape for packaging static-sensitive components. Its embossed, heat-resistant polycarbonate sheet construction meets ANSI/EIA standards for shrinkage, camber and standard semiconductor pocket dimensions. The carrier tape is available in a broad selection of pocket designs with dimensions to accommodate a variety of common electrical and electronic parts.
This static-sensitive carrier tape features precisely formed pockets that effectively fit passive components according to ANSI/EIA guidelines during transport. It features a nominal surface resistivity of ≥10⁴ Ω/square and ≤10⁸ Ω/square. 3M™ Carrier Tape 3000 is able to dissipate charges accumulated due to triboelectric effects. This carrier tape is appropriate for packaging electrostatically sensitive chips.
Polycarbonate material is very strong and stands up to impact which can damage delicate chips and components. Its shrinkage percentage is much lower than that for materials like polyester, helping keep the pockets stable even when properly stored for long periods (up to five years). This helps maintain accurate feeding and pocket position and helps reduce the possibility of component sticking.
The tape delivers a pocket dimensional tolerance at +/- 0.05 mm with a small sidewall draft angle <3°.
