The convenience and excitement of ordering products through the mail and having them delivered right to your doorstep is truly a miracle of modern commerce. Tearing open the box, and seeing what you saw on a screen a few days ago is as close as many of us can get to childhood Christmas morning memories.
There is always a nagging fear though: what happens if something arrives damaged or broken? That initial excitement is doubled or tripled in disappointment when the item we wanted so badly doesn’t power on, open up, or fit into place like we thought it would.
Because of all the small, delicate parts, this seems to happen to electronics more than any other type of product. Besides the obvious – that they consist of tiny components the average person wouldn’t be able to repair on their own – static becomes a danger when shipping electronics too. With many of these components built to conduct and convert power, a buildup and release of static electricity can overload a circuit or component, causing damage before it ever leaves its packaging.
Luckily, there is a real solution to this issue, and it can be found in anti-static packaging foam, something available to both businesses and individuals looking to transport sensitive equipment. The material is formulated with special compounds to dissipate static that can build during handling and packaging processes, preventing them from discharging into the product and causing damage.
Products made with anti-static compounds are widely recognized by their intentional pink coloration, and multiple foam and plastic types can be formulated to have these anti-static characteristics. If you need to be sure an electronic item gets to a destination in perfect order, anti-static packaging foam is a safe way to keep you from feeling sorry.
