Different Shielding Bags for Your Electrostatic-Sensitive Devices

There are many different ways that a product can be disturbed during shipping, including electrostatic fields and ESD.  The products that could be affected by this include missiles, explosives, powder and electrostatic-sensitive devices, semiconductors, thin film resistors, and more.  When any of these products are being shipped, it’s crucial that they have shielding bags so that the product arrives unharmed.  This article introduces 3 different shielding bags that you can use.

Static Shielding Bags

Static shielding bags prevent the buildup of static electricity because of their anti-static properties, but they also protect from electrostatic discharge.  It does so by forming a Faraday Cage effect by taking any electrostatic charges and evenly distributing them around the exterior of the protected product.  Static shielding bags protect items from both the inside and outside of the bag.


Anti-Static Bags

Anti-static bags prevent against the buildup of static electricity just like static shielding bags, but they don’t protect against electrostatic discharge.  This means that anti-static bags are great for protecting non-static sensitive parts such as nuts and bolts.


Moisture Vapor Barrier Shielding Bags

Moisture vapor barrier shielding bags protect against electromagnetic interference, radio frequency interference, and static.  This is accomplished because the bag has a thicker metal layer, which inhibits the moisture vapor transmission rate by over 20 times more than other bags.

These shielding bags have different purposes so make sure to consider the needs of your products before choosing one.  For more information, contact your protective packaging provider.
