Anti-static bags are plastic bags that are designed to prevent the buildup of static electricity. These bags are commonly used to store and transport electronic components, such as microchips, as well as other sensitive materials, such as photographic film.
The anti-static properties of these bags are achieved by adding a material, such as carbon or metal, to the plastic that will conduct electricity, effectively dissipating any static charge that might otherwise build up on the surface of the bag. This helps to prevent damage to the stored components due to static discharge, which can occur when two objects with a different electrical charge come into contact with each other.
