If you ship electronic products or components, you know that keeping them safe from electrostatic discharge is a top priority. Plastic is a popular electronics pallets choice. The type of protection applied to the pallet will vary depending on the type of electronics being shipped.
Where does static come from? Friction. Plastic pallets can generate a static charge during movement in the shipping process. Additives such as anti-static or electrostatic discharge (ESD) options are often used. These additives help to eliminate the static generated by plastic during the shipping process.
Due to the lightweight and delicate nature of most electronic components, many electronic products are routinely shipped via air freight. Our electronic pallets are a great choice for airfreight. And, because the shipment of electronics pallets is generally overseas, electronics pallets are usually a one-way type of shipping pallet.
With anti-static options available, lightweight plastic pallets are becoming common in the air freight shipment of electronic products. To make shipping even easier, plastic pallets are fully compliant with and exempt from ISPM-15 import and export regulations.
Finally, the consistent, smooth and clean nature of a plastic pallet is favorable for the safe shipment of electronic components. Let Nelson Company demonstrate how we can improve your electronics shipping process.
