Stock or bespoke anti-static packaging products

Anti-static packaging protects your static sensitive items, including PCBs, semi-conductors, and assembled products. Packaging of this type typically creates a faraday cage, which channels static around the outside of the anti-static bag or box. These properties protect the contents from ESD (electro-static discharge) damage. Anti-static packaging includes bins, boxes, bags, totes, dividers, and other inserts.

Anti-static packaging FAQs

There are several commonly asked questions on the general subject of anti-static packaging.

If you cannot find the information you need in this section, please contact a GWP team member. Telephone 01793 754 457 or email

What does anti-static mean?

Anti-static is a generic expression for any material that allows the flow of electrons. As such, the term applies to both dissipative and conductive items. Other phrases applicable when discussing anti-static packaging include dissipative, conductive, insulative, etc.

Is conductive packaging the same as anti-static?

Conductive materials provide low electrical resistance. These materials allow electrons to flow across or through them to ground. They would typically have a surface resistivity less than 1 x 10⁵ Ω/sq. or a volume resistivity less than 1 x 104 Ω-cm. The manufacture of anti-static packaging uses various conductive materials. In essence, anti-static material allows the pack to create a Faraday cage effect.

What is static dissipative?

Static dissipative materials allow the charges to ground more slowly. This type of material also does so in a more controlled manner when compared with conductive materials. Dissipative materials have a surface resistivity equal to or greater than 1 x 10⁵ Ω/sq. but less than 1 x 1012 Ω/sq.

Can insulative materials be used for ESD safe packaging?

Insulative materials prevent or limit the flow of electrons across or through them. They have electrical resistance and are difficult to ground. Unlike anti-static material, charges remain on them for a considerable time. Insulative materials have a surface resistivity of at least 1 x 1012 Ω/sq. Alternatively, insulative material should have a volume resistivity of at least 1 x 1011 Ω-cm.

Can I source custom anti-static packaging from GWP?

Many other packaging suppliers offer custom-designed anti-static packaging. However, these are nearly always created by designers with little or no experience in producing successful ESD safe solutions. GWP, however, have over 30 years of experience and a dedicated anti-static design team. Therefore, you can be confident that any custom item GWP creates for you provides performance and protection that exceed your expectations.

What products are available from GWP?

GWP are the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of conductive, ESD safe and anti-static packaging. Being the market leader means GWP can offer you products unavailable elsewhere in the UK. These products include those manufactured in house by GWP (such as Corstat®). You can also source leading branded ranges, such as the SSI Schaefer collection of ESD safe totes, bins, and boxes.

Buy anti-static packaging

The range of stock products you can purchase from GWP complement each other while working seamlessly with most standard racking and shelving systems. Their design allows them to work with setups typically found within ESD controlled workspaces.

Therefore, they are perfect for a vast range of handling and storage applications, where ESD performance is of paramount importance. The range of products also provide a number of non plastic, anti-static bag alternatives.

Keeping an extensive stock holding of these products allows for next day delivery in most cases. However, GWP is one of few UK companies to offer you a genuinely bespoke anti static packaging design service.

Suppose one of the standard anti-static packaging products is not 100% perfect for your specific application. In that case, the GWP Conductive design team can create a fully bespoke solution. Effectively, any custom anti-static packaging you specify satisfies your exact requirements.

Please get in touch if you require assistance in selecting the best anti-static bags, boxes and packaging for your requirement. GWP can also help if you want to know your nearest distributor or have questions about any of the anti-static packaging products available.
