An antistatic bag is a bag used for storing electronic components, which are prone to damage caused by ESD.
These bags are usually (PET) and have a distinctive color. Multiple layers of protection are often used to protect from both mechanical damage and electrostatic damage. A protected device can be packaged inside a metalized PET film bag, inside a pink polyethylene bubble-wrap bag, which is finally packed inside a rigid black polyethylene box lined with pink poly foam. It is important that the bags only be opened at static-free workstations.
