As an electronics manufacturer, you take steps to control moisture while storing and shipping products. A drier environment helps you safeguard against mold or mildew growth that can quickly ruin your goods. However, less moisture in the air can also cause an unwanted effect — an increased potential for static electricity buildup and electrostatic discharge (ESD).
Why Should You Use Anti-Static Bags?
Protect Electronic Components
Many electronics rely on numerous small components to operate. Buildups within these goods can come from friction, contact, heat or pressure and result in ESD. The tiny parts are vulnerable to the rapid temperature changes ESD produces, which can swiftly translate to significant product damage.
A key anti-static bag function is its ability to prevent ESD buildups completely. These solutions are specifically designed to create and maintain a static-free environment for storing and shipping sensitive electronic goods.
Prevent Moisture and Dust Damage
Static-shielding packaging guards against more than ESD, also providing protection against moisture and dust.
Excess moisture can result in component corrosion, mineral residue and dirt retention. These substances can leave a coating on the component that may lead to overheating or short circuits. Too much dust in the storage or shipping environment can penetrate the parts and cause the same outcomes.
Using anti-static bags with your electronic products protects your business’s substantial investment in expensive manufacturing materials by stopping those buildups.
Reduce Damaged Goods, Refunds and Returns
Every product you ship to customers bears your company name and represents its quality. That means if customers receive damaged goods, you risk your reputation. They may choose to do business elsewhere in the future, harming your growth potential and bottom line. Your company also experiences waste and a significant financial loss if the entire stock or shipment is damaged, plus the time lost in handling customer return and refund processing.
Static-shielding bags are ideal for mitigating these risks and helping ensure your customers’ satisfaction and product integrity.
