Static electricity can be an inconvenience. Whether you’re working with delicate electronics or volatile chemicals, static discharge can be one of the most costly and dangerous hazards to navigate.
Furthermore, a failure to adequately protect products and components from the risks of static discharge during transportation or storage can quickly rack up extensive losses and returns. Here are a few, common applications of anti-static poly film and bags you need to know:
Transportation and storage of electronics
The most common application of anti-static poly film and anti-static bags is, the packaging of electronics. Computer components and items of a similar nature can be easily damaged by an inopportune static discharge. This is bad for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the increased number of returns you’ll see. Consider also the impact upon your brand and customer experience; if people regularly receive damaged goods from your business, they’ll lose faith in you. Consider it a measure to maintain goodwill from your customers – and, potentially, an opportunity to brand, with custom packaging.
As part of a static-free environment
If you need to maintain a static-free environment, anti-static materials will play a critical role in moving items safely in and out of the environment. Whether you’re trying to avoid damage to delicate electronic devices, avoid corruption of research results, or keep a volatile environment safe, preventing static discharge from potentially charged items with anti-static bags is a sound policy. Anti-static poly film can be used when you require additional coverage of a new surface to maintain a static-free environment.
While not as common as anti-static bags for packaging consumer goods, there are benefits to anti-static poly film. It’s more readily customized and can offer benefits in terms of space requirements and packaging unusual items more reliably or easily. Anti-Static Poly Film can be customized to your specifications.
