Static Shielding Bags are constructed of plastic and aluminum in a pattern known as “metal-in”.
The “metal-in” layer is composed of ESD shielding aluminum laminate that provides a conductive Faraday Cage around electronics inside the bag. This is what stops electrostatic discharges (ESD) from entering it.
The anti static outer layers are made of static free polyethylene (PE) and polyester (PET). These prevent the bag from charging when it rubs against other surfaces.
All static shielding bags sold on Elimstat.com are lead-free, contain no amines, N-Octanoic acid, or heavy metals. This keeps them in compliance with RoHS and REACH.
They have no effect on aluminum, copper, silver, SN-Pb coated foil, stainless steel or low-carbon steel.
