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 [...]

The essential things to know about ESD mats

In many work environments, static electricity is one of the greatest threats to employee safety. A stray spark from an electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious harm to an individual and prompt damage to highly sensitive equipment. Because of this, the importance of having proper ESD safety equipment is paramount. Static electricity can be generated several different ways. Using a “ground up” approach is best when preventing electrical build up. To this end, all ESD safety plans should include the presence and [...]

Antistatic cloth: what you need to know

There are many different factors to consider when constructing an ESD-safe cleanroom or manufacturing environment. Among these considerations is the question of what clothes are appropriate for use in an antistatic workplace. Several kinds of fabric present an ESD threat in a workplace, including the material used to make employee uniforms, carpeting, and cleaning supplies such as workstation towels. To this end, many companies elect to use a high volume of antistatic cloth-based products in order to ensure the [...]
