We manufacture antistatic bags which used for storing electronic components, which are prone to damage caused by electrostatic discharge. These bags are usually plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and have a distinctive color (silvery for metallised film, pink or black for polyethylene). It is important that the bags only be opened at static-free workstations. Dissipative antistatic bags, as the name suggests, are made of standard polyethylene with a static dissipative coating or layer on the plastic. This prevents buildup of a static charge on the surface of the bag, as it dissipates the charge to ground (i.e., whatever other surface it is touching). This bridge to ground is achieved with the inclusion of a tallow amine on the bags surface which attracts moisture that can conduct the charge to another surface, or to the atmosphere itself. In this sense, this type is truly 'antistatic' in that it hinders the formation of static charges. It, however, is not resistant to #electrostatic discharge; if something else with a charge touches the bag (such as a persons hand), its charge would easily transfer through the bag and its contents. Antistatic bags are usually pink or white in color because of the dissipative chemical layer a partial shield, though not a complete one.
