ESD stands for Electro Static Discharge. It can be a problem for manufacturing certain products. There are some steps that can be taken to minimize or eliminate the presence of electro static discharge.

Options for Eliminating ESD

Anti-static bags are available to protect products. You can have your companies name printed on them if desired. You can also choose different colors or artwork for your anti-static bags.

There are a few different types of bags available to combat ESD. Pink anti-static bags are the traditional type for packaging static sensitive products. Other types of material include black conductive, transparent metallic, and amine free pink anti-static bags.

Conductive plastics are very helpful in preventing ESD damage. It was originally created to protect rocket weapons so that they would not detonate due to a static spark. Today, conductive plastics are used to protect all sorts of static sensitive items, from medical supplies to airplane navigation instruments.
