Hello Listers,

Awhile back I scrapped/recycled/trashed an R400X DSSI expansion chassis.
  Between the steel back cover a back of the backplane, I found a
plastic sheet, part number 7438980-01 rev. c01g?r0?

The question marks follow guesses on smeared digits....

My question is this:

Could this succesfully be used as an anti-static work surface? It
doesn't seem to attract lint like I would expect, which makes me wonder.
  Maybe it was simply to protect the backplane from shorting? Would I
be better off using a sheet of cardboard? It would be nice to have
something to lay cards on while sorting/re-assembling/etc.
