IC Shippers

Conductive Containers’ IC Shippers come in two different versions. Both are great options for shipping your sensitive components and small assemblies.

Our standard IC Shippers come with pink ASPU (anti-Static Polyurethane) foam laminated to the lid and black conductive pin insertion foam loose in the bottom. This traditional design is ideal for through-hole technology components or small assemblies with robust leads. The pink top foam is good for one way shipping or short-term storage as it will lose its ESD properties over time. The small mailer style box is made using our Corstat material and provides industry best static shielding.

Our IC-SS Shippers come with CCI’s SDPU (Static Dissipative Polyurethane) foam laminated to the top and loose in the bottom. We developed this new style IC Shipper to be used with BGAs and small assemblies that needed additional cushioning. The SS is for Super Soft which is what our SDPU foam is. Our SDPU foam is permanently static dissipative and cradles your part when the Corstat mailer is closed. With the permanent ESD properties this design is great for long term storage and can be used in a returnable reusable program.

No matter what option you use you can rest assured that your product will be protected by the best ESD materials available.


SafeMat | Conductive ESD Safe Mats

Conductive Container Inc. (CCI) SafeMat material is a high-performance solution designed for aerospace, medical, military, and other industries that require ultra-clean and reliable ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection. With its innovative two-layer construction, SafeMat material offers a range of benefits that make it an excellent choice when you are looking to optimize your ESD safety protocols.


The top layer of SafeMat material is a static dissipative, 10e7 – 10e8, blue top layer, which provides a smooth and cleanable surface. This layer is specially engineered to dissipate static electricity and prevent electrostatic build up, which can be a costly and time-consuming problem. The second layer of SafeMat material is a black conductive bottom layer, which provides grounding. This layer offers < 10e5 resistance, which means that it can safely dissipate static charges without damaging sensitive electronic assemblies, PCBs and components. With SafeMat material, you can be assured that your products are protected against FOD and ESD events.


Another significant advantage of SafeMat material is its antiseptically cleanable surface, which eliminates the need for static restorative cleaners. Our SafeMat can be wiped down with IPA or other antiseptic wipes and cleaners without drying out the material or affecting the ESD properties. This makes it an ideal solution when you need to maintain a clean and hygienic work environment without compromising on ESD protection. The tough TPU surface of SafeMat material also makes it resistant to tears, punctures, and abrasions, ensuring that it can withstand industrial use.


In summary, our SafeMat material provides a range of benefits that make it an excellent choice for businesses looking to optimize their ESD protection measures. Its two-layer construction, static dissipative blue top layer, conductive black bottom layer, permanent static dissipative properties, antiseptically cleanable surface, and tough TPU material make it a reliable and clean solution for any industry that requires high-quality ESD protection. With SafeMat material, you can be assured that your sensitive electronic assemblies and components are always protected against the damaging effects of electrostatic discharge.

Custom Thermoformed ESD Safe Tray Set

CCI has developed a custom innovative thermoformed tray set, designed to revolutionize your manufacturing process. The conductive styrene outer tray is manufactured with an expertly engineered mechanical mold and is crafted to work seamlessly with our customers automation equipment, ensuring efficient and reliable handling of their static sensitive parts. The conductive outer tray is lightweight and durable, designed for years of use.

But that’s not all – this outer tray was designed to accept static dissipative inner trays that snap securely into place within the outer tray. These inner trays have been specifically designed with cavities to hold individual parts. This ensures the boards are in contact with a static dissipative surface within the conductive tray to maximum ESD protection and organization during transport and storage. With this system, you can be confident that your parts are safe from electrical damage, contamination, and physical damage.

Work with our design team to create the perfect solution for your manufacturing, storage, handling and shipping needs. CCI offers convenience, reliability, and peace of mind. Don’t settle for anything less than the best – work with CCI on your next project and experience the difference for yourself.

ESD Clamshells VS Anti-Static Bags

What are the advantages of CCI’s ESD clamshells over ESD bags? We protect your sensitive electronic components from physical and electrical damage during shipping and handling. ESD bags only protect from electrical damage.

Better Protection: Conductive Container’s ESD clamshells provide a more secure and rigid protection than ESD bags, which are typically made of flexible material. Our clamshell designs help to prevent the components from moving around or coming into contact with other components during shipping, which reduces the risk of physical damage and static generation.

Greater Durability: CCI’s ESD clamshells are thermoformed using certified ESD safe rigid plastic, which makes them more resistant to damage from impacts, bending or crushing compared to ESD bags. They can be reused multiple times, making them a cost-effective option over time.  ESD bags are intended to be used only once.

Improved Visibility: Our ESD clamshells are designed with clear plastic, which allows for easy identification of the components inside without having to open the container. This can be particularly useful for applications where quick identification or scanning of the components is important, such as in inventory management or assembly line operations.

Easier Handling: CCI’s design team works with you to build design feature that allow for easy handling and transportation. We can build features that allow for stacking that allow the clamshells to be stored on top of each other. This feature reduces the amount of space required for storage and makes them easier to transport.

Greater Design Flexibility: We employ several design engineers that will work directly with you to design an ESD clamshell to fit your specific components. Clamshells can be designed to fit complex shapes or unusual sizes of components, ensuring a snug and secure fit.  That is not the case with ESD bags. The clamshells can also be designed with a cavity that allows them to be used for different stages of the PCB assembly or a universal cavity to fit different components.

Recyclable:  CCI’s clamshells are made from plastic that can be recycled with other plastics of the same type.  ESD bags can be recycled but must be processed separately from other plastics because they are typically made from multi-layers plastics and other materials.

In summary, our ESD clamshells are a better solution than ESD bags for applications where your valuable and sensitive components require more secure and physical protection, and where visibility and ease of handling are important. ESD clamshells provide better physical and electrical protection, greater durability, improved visibility, easier handling and greater design flexibility.  Reuse or recycle ESD clamshells to make them more sustainable than bags as well. When valuable parts are on the line the advantages of CCI’s ESD clamshells make them the clear choice over cheap ESD bags.
