How Anti-Static Foam Pouch Safeguards Electronic Goods While Shipping

FMI predicts that special chemicals of anti-static foam pouches will be crucial for avoiding static discharge from electronics. Intricately manufactured electrical components can be extremely delicate, and this is particularly true of electrostatic-sensitive devices (ESDs).

Even when ESDs are being created, technicians have to take extra precautions – such as ESD workstations, humidity control, anti-static garments or anti-static wrist wraps – to avoid damaging their work.

The report from Future Market Insights suggests that the handling and shipping of such electronic goods and items can be very risky and it requires more than just standard pouch to protect them from any damage in transit. Static can cause problems within the components in a standard bag or pouch, as sealed air is used to produce cushioning in these kind of pouches that protects the fragile content.

This is because static electricity is all around us and a mild shock can be caused by almost any two surfaces coming together: your shoes and a carpet, your hair and a hat, even your hand and a door handle. The shock is due to a rapid transfer of electrons between two objects with opposing charges.

Unfortunately, even a shock as small as five volts can damage ESDs beyond repair, and with humans having natural sources of electricity within our bodies, we cannot be too careful.

The Solution: Anti-Static Foam

Foam inserts for packing, transportation and storage provide vital protection for goods, having been cut specifically for the components they house. ESDs, however, require a special type of foam.

Made using open-cell polyurethane foam, anti-static foam includes special chemicals and an anti-static agent. It is usually coloured pink during the manufacturing process, to differentiate it from other types of foam.

As well as protecting goods from static discharge, anti-static foam gives any potential electrical charges a path away from the packaging, allowing it to dissipate safely. Also, since components are housed within their own individual niches in the foam, there is no chance of frictional or triboelectric charging due to objects rubbing together.

Before such precautions could be taken, one early manufacturer of computer circuit boards found high rates of failure in their products once they left the factory and had been investigated by field service engineers. Eventually, they discovered that the field service engineers were unaware of the need for precautionary measures when handling ESDs like circuit boards and their interventions were damaging the components.

With potential sources of static electricity surrounding us and our expensive ESDs, the advent of the anti-static foam alone has saved businesses untold costs each and every day.

Anti-Static Foam Pouch Market Overview

Handling and shipping of electronic goods and items can be very risky and it requires more than just standard pouch to protect them from any damage in transit. Static can cause problems within the components in a standard bag or pouch, as sealed air is used to produce cushioning in these kind of pouches that protects the fragile content.

However, it has an ability to generate static electricity when handled, which can damage integrated circuits and other essential electronic parts and therefore, the importance of anti-static foam pouch comes into picture that also offers the same cushioning safety as normal foam pouch along with static protection.

Anti-Static Foam pouches are anti-static polyethylene air foam pouches that are best suited for static sensitive and small parts protection and are also nonabrasive. These pouches protect sensitive electronic components against static discharge.

Mostly, anti-static foam pouches are tinted pink as this color signifies antistatic properties within the packaging industry. Anti-Static foam pouch are primarily designed for the transportation of electronic parts and equipment. The unique anti-static properties of these type of pouches allow the foam to slowly dissolve electro-static charges given off from the component itself, neighboring components or even people during the handling & transportation process.

Anti-static foam pouches are best suited for protecting sensitive circuit boards, computer chips and other electronics.

Anti-Static Foam Pouch Market Dynamics

The increasing shipments of electronic devices is considered as the major factor driving the growth in the anti-static foam pouch market. Furthermore, the growth in ecommerce is also expected to fuel the growth in the anti-static foam pouch market.

The growing automotive industry is another factor that is accelerating the growth in the anti-static foam pouch market, as automotive industry frequently comes up with technological developments to augment its functionalities and uses components like ICs and semiconductors that leads to increased demand for semiconductor wafers and in turn its packaging material like anti-static foam pouch.

In addition, the growth in the demand for smart devices like smart phones, smart wearables, smarts TVs etc. has fueled the growth in the anti-static packaging including the anti-static foam pouch market. However, rising regulations against the use of plastics in several countries can act as a restraint in the anti-static foam pouch market.
