ESD plastic pallets and pallets covers

ESD plastic packaging is done by adding carbon inside the plastic granules, before injection or extrusion process.

ESD packing is essential for certain types of products, such as electronic circuits and other ESD sensitive parts or devices, that are highly susceptible to static electricity buildup. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) causes severe damage and operational disturbances in electronic equipment that needs to be properly protected throughout the logistics cycle.

ESD packaging can be designed to be either conductive or dissipative. This distinction is achieved by calibrating the graphite ratio to the mass of raw plastic material. We can customize this proportion, and produce the models below with conductive or dissipative properties, according to the needs and specifications of the client’s instructions.

This is why ESD packaging has been developed and is now a standard, obligatory use in certain industries, such as automotive and electronics.

They are also used for the storage of electric spark sensitive, hazardous products. In this case also, ESD packaging is vital for reducing the risk of accidents, such as explosions.

Friction or mere contact between objects or surfaces, causes a small electric charge at rest. The build-up of electric charge at rest or electrostatic will trigger a discharge of energy, to rebalance these small loads of electrons. Electrostatic discharges frequently occur all around us.

When charge disturbances happen at a more increased pace than the redistribution of the charge, then the static charge appears. Electric discharges occur where charges of different electrostatic potentials meet. The flow of electrons is sudden, releasing energy that can severely corrupt electrostatic-sensitive devices (ESDS), such as high-precision measuring equipment, or electronic devices or components.

Consequently, Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESDS) require special conditions to be protected against electrostatic discharges:

  • These items need to be handled only in ESD Protected Areas (EPA); these are spaces where multiple groundings have been put in, resulting in the minimization of the differences in the electrostatic potential
  • ESDS products must be shipped from one EPA to another EPA in ESD packaging that does not produce electricity by friction and also shields against possible electrostatic induction caused by external objects.

ESDS production facilities implement very specific measures to create a safe environment: they use ESD-safe work surfaces, EPA-labeling signs, special accessories for staff (like grounded wrist straps, a certain type of work attire, adequate footwear with grounding devices), safe flooring, ESD-safe chairs, ESD safe office supplies, etc.

After the products leave the safe environment of the production areas, they come across the risks of exposure to electrostatic hazards, which can produce irreversible damage. Therefore, to avoid any unwanted incidents, it is highly recommended that every layer of the packaging is made out of ESD, anti-static, or specialized conductive materials. The intimate layer gets in direct contact with the product, the proximity layer encloses the product, and secondary packaging is added, to provide physical protection against potential shocks.

In this particular situation, the use of correct packaging is correspondingly important as the packed product itself, as an inadequate packet can easily lead to the deterioration of its content.

It’s vital for clients to correctly evaluate the ESD sensitivity of their products, and plan the packaging in accordance. This evaluation can be made by individual measuring procedures or by using the technical specs provided by manufacturers.

ESD packaging provides conductive properties between >1 x 10^2 Ω and <1 x 10^5 Ω or dissipative between >1 x 10^6 Ω and <1 x 10^11 Ω.

Statistics show that 25% of modern electronic equipment is affected because of electrostatic discharges, producing significant losses.

Boxes with ESD properties (conductive or dissipative) are robust and also protect the load against mechanical shocks, dust, and moisture.

The ESD plastic pallets prevent electrostatic discharges into the load by being grounded with the flooring.

All ESD packaging from injected plastic is reusable and complies with the usual requirements of the clients:

  • They are produced only with high-quality materials.
  • They reduce the cost of the packaging in the long run due to its resistance and long service life.
  • They reduce the amount of industrial waste generated by one-way packaging or damaged products because of improper packaging with no ESD protection.
  • They can be cleaned and sanitized with industrial washing machines, maintaining a pleasant aspect and many safe transport cycles.
  • They can be used together with accessories like lids and covers (for protection), label holders/self-adhesive labels (better content identification).
