The production unit has been extremely pink this week as one of our briefs was to design bespoke, anti-static foam inserts for highly sensitive components which are extremely susceptible to static electricity.
The sensitive circuitry of electronic components becomes vulnerable to damage if not protected against static. The worst culprit being the human body, capable of accumulating static which can be discharged when handling components.
If unprotected the shock to the sensitive electronics can be devastating; the shock spreads along multiple paths searching for earth, and in turn can cause severe damage.
Anti-static materials inhibit triboelectric charging which is the build-up of an electric charge by the rubbing or contact with another material. To prevent this common occurrence our bespoke foam inserts, prevent static before it builds up, thus protecting the components against failure.
Pink might be every little princess’ favourite colour, but to those in the know, pink is an extremely important colour when it comes to protecting your sensitive equipment.
