Question Can anyone from your Technical support help me on this issue I have in my production shop. I am trying to determine before I make a packaging purchase of ESD bags. The pro's and con's of the Pink Poly bag over Shielded Metal in bags. I produce and distribute LCD's for the wireless Industry?

Thank you for your inquiry and purchase of ESD ESD control products.

Pink Poly Bags are low charging and dissipative.

Statshield ESD Metal In Bags are also low charging and dissipative; in addition it has the ESD control property of shielding.

The minimum recommended technical requirement of Table 1 of ANSI/ESD S20.20 for ESD Packaging Shielding is < 50 nJ tested in accordance with ESD S11.31. Statshield ESD Metal In Bags easily meets the requirement. When we tested Pink Poly for energy penetration, the result was 1,372 nJ.

Per Packaging standard ESD S541 section 6.2 Outside an EPA “Transportation of sensitive products outside of an EPA shall require packaging that provides:

1. Low charge generation.

2. Dissipative or conductive materials for intimate contact.

3. A structure that provides electrostatic discharge shielding.”
