Pink antistatic bags – clearing up the confusion

Posted by Antistat on Feb 8, 2018 9:42:26 AM

Component or electronics assembly malfunction as a result of static discharge can often go unnoticed until it is too late – damage is sometimes only apparent when inspecting items under a microscope, or when testing an assembly – wasting precious time and delaying processes.  

One way to reduce risks of ESD events is by using pink antistatic bags.
