Anti Static Bags

Category: Tags: ,

The term “anti static” refers to the upper static dissipative range- usually defined as between 1 x 1010 and less than 1 x 1012 ohms / square. Polyethylene and polyesters used in bags for static control are always in this “anti static” range.

Clear enough for scanning bar codes, it is available as open-top bags, sealable bags, rolls (500 ft. and 1000 ft.), tubing, or sheeting.

An “anti static” bag is a term used to refer to any bag made with anti static polymers so that when it rubs or touches other materials it does not create static.

The term “anti static” refers to the upper static dissipative range- usually defined as between 1 x 1010 and less than 1 x 1012 ohms / square. Polyethylene and polyesters used in bags for static control are always in this “anti static” range.

Anti Static Plastic Bags

A static shielding bag, unlike a pink anti static bag, contains aluminum (which is “conductive”) to shield the contents of the bag from electrostatic discharges (ESD). Static shielding bags are, therefore “anti static” and “conductive”.

Anti Static vs Conductive in Ohms Square

Anti static bags are made of a single layer of static dissipative homogeneous polyethylene (PET) that resists charging when it comes into contact with other materials or is rubbed.
