Moisture Barrier ESD Bags

Moisture Barrier Bags are designed for the packing of SMDs; protecting them from moisture and static damage.

Moisture Barrier Bags protect electronics from moisture and static damage during storage and transportation. These bags are ideal for storing static sensitive devices in humid environments. Moisture Barrier Bags are Jedec compliant; enabling you to safely transport Jedec Trays. Each bag has a layer of aluminium that blocks the moisture. All bags should be used with a Humidity Indicator Card and Desiccant. Humidity Indicator Cards report the effectiveness of the package upon device use. Desiccant filled pouches scavenge the remaining moisture from the bag’s interior which is entrapped by the desiccant.

The Moisture Barrier Bags are opaque and light-tight ensuring the contents cannot be seen from the outside; adding a layer of operational security. They are suitable for packing electronic products which are sensitive to moisture and static e.g. PCBs or integrated circuits. The 4mil puncture-resistant and moisture-proof packaging has a flexible structure and is suitable for vacuum-sealing.

A list of available sizes is highlighted on the below Technical Bulletin. Please contact us to discuss non-specified sizing.
