Are Anti-Static Bags Conductive? What’s the Difference Between Anti-Static and Static Shielding Bags?

Standard plastic bags, commonly made of polyethylene, fail to protect ESD-sensitive devices from the flow of electrically charged objects caused by contact, and electrical short, or dielectric breakdown. ESD is not only a silent killer in high-tech electronics manufacturing and production, but also during hobbyist projects or small-batch electronics repair. Electronic devices, IC components, and other ESD-sensitive devices are not safe from ESD events when stored, handled, or transported outside an ESD safe environment inside an anti-static bag.

ANSI/ESD Standards, Design, Training, and Safety for Organizations

Today, more than ever, meeting the complex challenge of reducing ESD losses requires more than reliance on faith alone. Users require a way to legitimately evaluate and compare competing brands and types of products. They need objective confirmation that their ESD control program provides effective solutions to their unique ESD problems.
