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.

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.

KleanStat Flex Tote Insert

Hard sided totes propose several challenges when product is placed inside. If the product is not physically protected  it can bang against the side of the tote and be damaged. If a board is only in a shielding bag it has no physical protection. The board continually hits the edge of the tote and proposes a rick of weakening or even completely damaging the board. Below is a great way to get some protection using KleanStat Flex bubble to line the edge of the container.

Large bubbles line the bottom of the tote for extra protection for heavy parts or assemblies.

The side of the insert uses a medium bubble to cushion any product that is leaned up against it. CCI can create an insert to any size tote.

Remember KleanStat Flex is:

Permanently ESD Safe

Cleanable with IPA

Virtually indestructible


It might look like a maze but this unique custom CCI tote is designed for kitting product. The design accommodates all the components to complete an assembly build. Die cut dissipative foam provides excellent cushioning to protect the product from physical damage.
