Static Shielding Bag

What is static shielding bag?

Static shielding bag is designed especially for packaging new or used electronic components that are highly sensitive to low-level static discharges.

An electronic component includes:

  • Hard drives
  • Processors
  • Sound cards
  • Microchips
  • Motherboards
  • Graphic cards
  • Other forms of printed circuit boards

Difference between anti-static bags and static shielding bags

Often, in terms of understanding, anti-static and static shielding bag are interchangeably used. However, there happens to be a big difference between the two.

Anti-Static Bags are mostly utilized for preserving and protecting non-static sensitive parts that are employed in electronics manufacturing. For instance, nuts, screws, wires, circuits, bolts and manuals are some of the things that can be safely kept in anti-static bags.

Anti-static material prevents in building up of static electricity. However, the material do not protect from electrostatic discharge (ESD).

Static shielding material not only prevents in piling up of static electricity but it also helps in protecting from electrostatic discharge. In a way, static shielding material has some amount of anti-static properties.

Static shielding bag acts a metal screen around an electronic component to exclude electrostatic and electromagnetic influences. By mimicking Faraday Cage static shielding bag preserves and protects the electronic components

Which one is better: static shielding bag or antistatic bags

Each bag has its plus points over the other. Answer to the preference of the bag generally depends on the situation.

When you are dealing with ESD (electrostatic discharge) sensitive products, static sensitive bags or the static shielding bag must be given preference.

While on the other hand, antistatic bags can be used in situations where non-static sensitive parts are into the play. Antistatic bags can hold

  • Tools
  • Safety gears
  • Manufacturing equipment and
  • Spare parts

In any case, the most important factor is to take a step ahead in protecting your workers by preserving your manufacturing environment, supplies and other related equipments.
