PACKAGING FOR ELECTRONICS
"Static zap" is known to affect vital electronic devices, components and assemblies in transit. Anti-static foams go some way towards protection against this but are themselves subject to environmental conditions which may prevent the necessary level of conductivity being reached. It is essential to use consistently static dissipative or conductive grades of PLASTAZOTE foam to guarantee maximum protection.
Designers have long been aware of the benefits offered by this specialised foam over more traditional packaging materials, when transporting high-value and potentially fragile items. PLASTAZOTE has an exceptional cushioning specification, which enables engineers and packaging designers to achieve their objective with a much smaller volume of foam, resulting in significantly less bulk in the overall package and, therefore, reduced cost on freight and transportation expenses.
Kewell Converters Ltd. makes shaped protective foam packaging for items as large as satellite dishes to tiny electronic components, providing cushioning on the inside and robust protection on the outside.
