Many online dictionaries even wrongly suggest these terms up as close synonyms, but in fact, there are major differences between anti-static and static-shielding materials, and many cheap online sellers on platforms like eBay & Amazon confuse the issue by a distinct lack of product knowledge. So [...]

Pink Antistatic Bags – clearing up the confusion

One way to reduce the risks of ESD events is by using pink antistatic bags. Pink anti-static bags are an ideal packaging solution for transporting non-ESD sensitive items into a EPA. In fact, they are the only form of ‘plastic’ bags recognized as being suitable to use in an EPA; conventional plastic bags have the ability to generate and hold in excess of 10,000 volts, which would be disastrous in proximity to static-sensitive electronics. What are they made from? Pink antistatic bags [...]
