Compostable Packaging Certifications

There are multiple levels of certifications, both by industry associations as well as governmental organizations. Generally there are two types of compostable packaging, first are industrially compostable materials, which can be composted in a industrial composter, and second are home compostable (ambient) which can compost under standard home composting environments.  The process of composting requires a combination of temperature, microbial life, water, oxygen, and other factors.

Several labeling schema have been developed to identify the compostable and disposal characteristics of compostable packaging materials. DIN Certco and Vinçotte being the two many organizations pushing these labeling standards.

Bio-based carbon claim certifications ASTM D6866

D6866 is the ASTM certification basis for the USDA and Vincotte labeling standards for bio-based content claims. Additionally Bio-based plastics are plastics that are derived not from Petrochemicals. They can be both partly bio-based, or fully bio-based.

Static Shielding

Static Shielding

Electrostatic discharge is known to occur when two electrically charged material comes into sudden contact. This results in the build-up of static charges due to the electrostatic induction produced by the materials in contact. This might in-turn cause dielectric breakdown of the components. For electronic devices to be adequately protected, it has to be housed in a material that has static dissipative attributes. Example of such material is static shielding bag which gives effective protection. We have the most common stock sizes.

Need a Custom Sized ESD or Static Shielding Bag? - Lets Talk

Metalized PET with Anti-static Coatings

We carry a selection of pouches for various applications. The pouches on this page are designed to prevent the contents from being damaged due to static discharge. These bags are not designed for use with food, and do not provide barriers for water or oxygen. They are solely designed to prevent electronics, medical components, and other items from being damaged by static electricity. This protection is afforded by both the composition of the materials used to make the pouches, as well as the configuration used. It is important to use care with handling the bags as to not create a pinch in the bag that can invalidate the protection being provided by the bag.

Types of ESD shielding bags

  • Antistatic bag: They avoid the build-up of electric charges but they cannot protect electronic devices from electrostatic discharge. They are best used to protect non-sensitive parts of the device.
  • Static shielding bag: Contrary to the antistatic bag, static shielding bag can adequately protect devices from electrostatic discharges. Therefore, it’s the most used type of ESD shielding bag.

What are the sensitive electronic devices that can be packaged with a static shielding bag?

Some major electronic products that can be packaged with static shielding bag include:

  • Motherboards
  • All forms of printed circuit boards
  • Graphics cards
  • Microchips
ESD shielding pouch for protecting electronics

What is Static Shielding

Static shielding bags are made up of metalized layers that give necessary protection to electronics devices. They do this by creating a Faraday cage effect on the device to be protected. Faraday cage functions by simply making the external electrical field to create charges. They are distributed in a manner that annuls the effect of static charge development in the cages’ interior.

Components of static shielding bag

This metalized static shielding bag is made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) material with four different layers. The inner layer comprises of a static dissipative polyethylene, coated with an Aluminum metal. The inner layer is immediately followed by a layer that is made of polyester. Then a double outer layer that has a static dissipative coating. The four-layer design of static shielding bag gives device both inner and outer protection.

Key Features

The resistance of this device falls within the range of 1005 – 1015 ohms/sq. and a static decay that is less than 0.05sec. It is a very durable and strong material with a high tensile strength greater than 25lb, 3.0 MILS thickness and high resistance to tribocharging. Static shielding bag also has static shielding greater than 30V and light transmission of 40%.

Importance of static shielding bag

  • It’s good for transporting and storing sensitive electronic devices: Some sensitive electronic devices are prone to develop static charges. It’s best to transport and store such devices in static shielding bag to avoid damages.
  • It provides adequate protection: Water and oxygen cannot penetrate through the static shielding bag because it is water resistant and air tight. It can also protect devices from the penetration of light due to its silvery surface.

 Additional notes:

Any electrostatic shielding bag that has spent 2 years after the date of manufacture should not be used because they pose a high danger to the user. And also, its storage temperature should be maintained within a range of 21oC to 23oC.

Metalized PET Pouches – MET/PET, VMPET, or MPET

SilverDollar & GoldMetal

Our 2000 series of films we call SilverDollar are Metalized polyethylene terephthalate (PET) films also known as MET/PET or VMPET. They are polymeric material made by the coating of metallic thin layers on polymer films. The coating gives a reflective surface and a glowy look to the material while enhancing the barrier properties of the base polymer film extrusion. The popular metal used for coating is Aluminum. However, some other metals that can also be used for this purpose such as Chromium and Nickel.

The key features of our 2000 series Metallized PETs include excellent gloss, good handling properties and good barrier properties. Metalized PET film generally has an optical density that is within the range of 1.4 to 3.0, metal/film bond of 100 – 150 gm/25mm for plain side and 130 – 180gm/25mm for corona side.

Why is our metalized 2000 series a great option?

Foods and drugs manufactured needs to be adequately preserved to enable them function properly in the body system. For this to be achieved, the products must be protected from being oxidized by water and oxygen. The protection can be built on the packaging material that houses these products. Metalized PET film reduces the permeability of water and oxygen due to the metallic coating on it. It gives needed strength, compatibility and stability properties needed to protect products. Furthermore, it has an emissivity that is as low as 0.05, thereby guarding products from thermal degradation. The controlled permeation enables foods and drugs to maintain their qualities.

Other quality it gives to food and pharmaceutical products as a packaging material includes:

  • Sealability through the heat welding of the LLDPE substrate
  • Abrasive resistance
  • Tear strength
  • Metalizing surface energy
  • Light and chemical barrier
  • Protection against surface defects

Technical characteristics of metalized PET films

Listed below are the major technical characteristics of metalized PET films:

  • It has low electrostatic charge: Charges that are meant to generate on metal surfaces are reflected. This will, in turn, reduce the development of electrostatic charges and thermal effect on the surface.
  • It has high tensile strength with brilliant clarity: The surface quality also determines the tensile strength of a material, especially metal foils.
  • It is water resistant: the Glossy surface is generally known to be good water repellent. As such, Metalized PET film can resist the penetration of water.
