New Green Shippers!

Green Shipper with PCB It isn’t easy being green these days, but you can take a step in this direction with the new green cell foam ESD box. These tiny shippers are used for transporting and protecting printed circuit  boards. This is the only fully recyclable ESD box made from biodegradable foam made from non-GMO cornstarch. The boxes are RoHS, an acronym meaning “the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.” When certain products are RoHS, they do not contain more than the agreed levels of harmful chemicals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants. These shippers are virtually the same as the pink foam shippers made by Centurian except they cut down on environmental waste because they can be recycled, composted, or simply dissolved in water. Some other great features are:

  • Instead of applying glue to bond the foam to the box, water is used.
  • Price is comparable to polyethylene and polyurethane 1.7lb. boxes.
  • Naturally anti-static
  • Acts as a desiccant
  • MARPOL approved (can be disposed in waterways)

So next time you’re in the market for circuit board shippers, be a friend to the environment and go green. Check out these new green shippers on All-Spec’s website.
