There are three varieties of anti-static plastic bag: pink anti-static poly bags, black conductive bags, and static shielding bags. Customers who frequently ship or store electronic goods may be interested in all of these or just one, so let’s take a look at the different properties of each.
Pink anti-static plastic bags are an excellent way to stop electrostatic charges from harming sensitive items. They are affordable and work effectively to protect against the most basic of charges. When purchasing anti-static bags from The Packaging Group, you can opt for a flat poly bag, which is sealed through heat, twist ties, or tape, or you can select a reclosable anti-static bag with zipper closure.
To take advantage of complete Faraday Cage protection, a black conductive bag or tubing is your best bet. For those who may not know, a Faraday Cage is a shield that blocks out all electrostatic charges and electromagnetic fields. Our black conductive options provide this enhanced security through carbon black additives that help electrons flow within the plastic. They have an unlimited shelf life and also offer incredible corrosion resistance for your particularly sensitive electronics or small metals. This option even allows you to take advantage of versatile plastic tubing, which can be cut and sealed to size, making it an excellent choice for those who store or ship electronics of varying lengths and widths.
Between the standard protection of a pink anti-static poly bag and the remarkable strength of black conductive plastic tubing and bags falls a static shielding bag. While these do not bring complete Faraday Cage protection, they do secure your items against electrostatic fields. These black poly bags are composed of multiple layers to protect ESD-sensitive electronics. They are intended only for commercial use and are not on the Defense Standardization Program’s Qualified Product Listing.
From tiny circuit boards and smartphone SIM cards to bulky computer parts, anti-static plastic bags are an ideal tool to protect your electronics.
