Static shielding bags, or a Metal-In bag or ESD barrier bag, prevents static electricity build-up and protect from electrostatic discharges (ESD). These packaging bags have multiple layers that protect the components from the effects of ESD.

Protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD)

An aluminium shielding layer made of static dissipative polyethene wraps the inner layer. The next layer is polyester, with an outer layer of a static dissipative coating. These bags provide Faraday cage protection to the components against static charges both outside and inside.

Static shielding bag protects sensitive electronic components, products, and equipment vulnerable to electrostatic discharge (ESD) during transportation and storage. Due to the four-layer construction, these bags guard products against the inside and outside charges. They are ideal for sending static-sensitive products to customers because they are simple to load.

ESD Barrier Bags for Electronics

The built-in plastic zip closure on the re-closable bags makes them easy to secure and reuse. Transparent static shielding bags allow recipients to quickly identify what is within the packaging without opening it, making them ideal for convenient storage and inventory.

ESD barrier bags are commonly used for packing and storing integrated circuits, printed circuit boards, hard drives, computer components, PCBs, and many other electrostatic products. Customised static shielding bags are available according to specific requirements.
