We offer Anti-Static bags which are perfect for securely packing electronic components or computer chips. These bags are great for static-sensitive items. We offer open-ended flat anti-static bags in 3 different thicknesses (2 Mil, 4 Mil, and 6 Mil). These Mil thicknesses correspond to the puncture resistance of the bag which corresponds to Standard Duty (2 Mil), Heavy Duty (4 Mil), and Super Heavy Duty (6 Mil) applications. We also carry 4 Mil Reclosable Anti-Static Bags that feature a zipper for easy closure.
Anti-static bags are used to protect sensitive products as they have the ability to dissipate a static charge and prevent static charge from building up on the exterior of the bag. The anti-static bags can be used to safely package/transport your non-ESD-sensitive devices within your ESD-protected area. Antistatic Bags are also known as anti-static film, anti-static plastic film, anti-static shield bag, anti-static shielding bag, anti-static packaging bag, anti-static aluminum foil bag, anti-static plastic bag, anti-static packaging material, anti-static packaging film, anti-static packaging material, anti-static packaging film, anti-static foil bag and so on.

Anti-static poly bags are a great packaging solution if you’re looking to protect your sensitive products from electrostatic discharge (ESD) during packing and transport.
Our durable anti-static bags are made from high-quality, 100% Virgin Pink Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE). Each bag features amine-free static protective polyethylene materials that dispel a static charge and prevent static from building up on a bag’s exterior.
These bags essentially block static from transferring from the outside of your bag and get rid of any electrostatic discharge that can harm sensitive electronic items. Static electricity often occurs in an environment that has low levels of moisture in the air. You can easily prevent damage to your sensitive products by using a moisture-resistant, anti-static bag to shield, store, or transport sensitive electronic items such as components, devices, printed circuitry boards, and more.
Anti-static bags from Elements Supply come in several flat and open or reclosable options that get the job done. Our reclosable bags have a resealable zipper that makes it easy to open and close the bags over and over. Our 4 Mil to 6 Mil bags are suitable for heavy duty applications which makes them perfect to pack or ship heavy or bulky items that still need anti-static protection.
Our complete collection includes 2 Mil Pink Anti-Static Flat Bags, 4 Mil Pink Anti-Static Flat Bags, 4 Mil Pink Anti-Static Reclosable Bags, and 6 Mil Pink Anti-Static Flat Bags to best suit your specific purpose.

When Should I Use an Anti-Static Bag?
Anti-static packaging can serve many purposes. Our anti static poly bags are best used if you need to store or ship products or parts that may get damaged by static electricity buildup or charges.
Elements Supply bags are also perfect for shipping items that aren’t static-sensitive but may encounter a static-sensitive atmosphere. Using an anti-static bag in this case will prevent these items from picking up static electricity and discharging them near other sensitive products.
Easily protect and secure your electronics, parts, or flammable items with our high-quality and durable anti-static poly packaging. Each heat sealable or reclosable bag eliminates any static discharge to give you peace of mind and added security.
What Does an Anti-Static Bag Do?
A poly bag that is treated with an anti-static agent eliminates normal electrical charges that can build up on the outside of a plastic bag. A high amount of static can draw dust that can damage sensitive components such as microcircuits and prevent them from processing correctly. Flammable products also react poorly to static discharge since static electricity buildup can cause the ignition to fail in products that are designed to have flammable components.
Packaging your products in anti-static bags can help protect against electrostatic discharge and reduce product loss during packing and shipping processes.
Our anti-static poly bags are humidity-resistant and amine-free to provide a cost-effective way to store and ship sensitive or non-sensitive items that may be unpacked or used in an ESD-free environment.
Using an anti-static bag is an excellent way to ensure the integrity of your product while giving your customer the protection that they may need for sensitive components used on their end.
Do I Need to Seal an Anti-Static Bag?
Getting the right closure can be essential for your packing and shipping process. With our anti-static flat bags, you can choose from either open-ended or reclosable bag options.
If you buy our anti-static reclosable bags, this means that you won’t need to seal the bag in any way. Even better, you won’t need to waste a bag if you need to open it again for any reason after you close it. Just unzip and re-close the zipper as many times as needed without damaging the integrity of the bag.
If you buy any of our standard anti static bags, you can easily seal the open end in seconds with an impulse heat sealer. If you don’t need an airtight seal on the bag, you can also secure it with staples, tape, or a twist tie.
What Are the Top 3 Reasons to Use an Anti-Static Bag?
If you’ve ever bought a computer or an electronic component, it has probably arrived wrapped in an anti-static bag. You might have wondered what anti-static bags are for, how they work, and why businesses use them.
Many electronic components used in computers and other parts are sensitive to electrostatic discharges. Static electricity can damage or fry delicate components’ circuitry and micro-compressors and make them useless.
One of the most common reasons for static electricity buildup is tribocharging. This is a kind of contact electrification that electrically charges a material when it comes into friction with another material.
Anti-static packaging contains a microscopic water molecule layer on the surface of the bag that keeps contact friction or static discharge from occurring. The Low-Density Polyethylene material doesn’t create or hold a charge even if the item inside the bag shifts or rubs against the material (LDPE), which also provides a moisture-resistant barrier. These bags are also somewhat conductive which dissipates static and prevents static from discharging onto the object inside the bag. Anti-static bags are typically made from LDPE and often have a pink or silver color.
Anti-static packaging is an excellent packaging solution to reduce ESD risk to sensitive products or those that might encounter an ESD environment before and after shipping.
Check out these top 3 reasons why using an anti-static bag can benefit your business.
1. Preserve Components from Electrostatic Discharge
Get the right protection for sensitive electronic devices or components with an anti static bag that preserves the integrity of your product. Many kinds of electronics require multiple small components to function optimally.
Some sensitive parts can become flammable if not handled with proper care that eliminates risk from static. Other products with flammable components may not work correctly upon ignition if electrostatic buildup or discharge has interfered with their normal function.
An anti-static bag will not only minimize static buildup, but it will dispel any existing static charge that occurs when two materials rub together.
This means that you can use our anti-static bags to safely store and transport items both electronic components and items that aren’t vulnerable to static such as parts, nuts, bolts, and more, or bring them into an electrostatic protected area (EPA).
2. Avoid Damage from Dust and Moisture
Another way that Elements Supply anti static bags can benefit your business is by shielding your products from moisture and dust.
We all know that too much moisture can cause parts or components to corrode. Excess moisture can result in overheating or short-circuits which damages products or renders them useless. Dust from a storage environment can reduce a product’s usability through overheating, create performance problems, and result in damaged hardware that is costly and time-consuming to replace.
For example, everyday dust buildup can prevent the filters in a computer from allowing proper airflow. When a computer doesn’t filter air correctly, this can make the device overheat and self-destruct. Dust also insulates components which can make heat increase from the inside. Dust can also make circuit boards or integrated circuits short out which can make a computer crash or even catch on fire in a worst-case scenario.
Using anti-static bags can protect your company’s product investment by stopping dust or moisture buildup in its tracks.
3. Reduce Product Loss, Returns, and Refunds
Every time you ship a product to your customers, you are sending a message about your brand’s quality. If you consistently have customers returning damaged products that fail to live up to expectations due to ESD exposure, this can risk your good reputation.
Normal human interaction, pressure, or friction from material can create ESD. Tiny components are at risk from fast temperature changes that occur from electrostatic discharge. This can cause irreparable damage to sensitive electronic components and contribute to increased product loss which can hurt businesses financially.
Dissatisfied customers can leave bad reviews or decide to shop elsewhere. Both these common scenarios can increase your company’s costs and hinder your business’s potential for growth. Having to handle customer returns and issue refunds costs your company both time and money. Meanwhile, losing lots of stock or even an entire shipment to ESD damage can really hurt your bottom line.
The good news is that anti-static bags are an ideal packaging solution to reduce risks, help ensure that your product stays safe and undamaged, keep overhead costs lower, and boost your customer satisfaction.
