CANUS is located in Ottawa Ontario which is home to many high tech firms, from larger companies with global reach to cutting edge start-ups. These companies produce components and complete goods for satellites, telecommunications, nanotech, robotics, remote sensing, semiconductors, and information technology. Many of these companies have relied on CANUS for precision machining of plastic components and vacuum forming of plastic housings and shrouds for sensitive electronics.
The plastics used in these high tech applications are often specialized to meet clean room and electrostatic dissipative (ESD) requirements. ESD Plastics are plastics treated with carbon powder and fibres or special coatings so that they are electrostatically dissipative or resistant to static build-up. ESD Plastics are quite capable of retaining the physical, mechanical, thermal and chemical properties for which their base plastics are known and used. Common ESD Plastics used at CANUS at our manufacturing facility in Ottawa include ABS, Acetal such as Delrin, Polycarbonate (PC), Polypropylene (PP) and UHMW.
