Is it ok to use a standard Dymo (paper) label on a ESD bag intented to hold ESD device? I know the paper part is a static generator and there is a 12" rule typically, but what are the norms, and if its not OK to use a standard Dymo (or similar, Avery) blank label, where can I find blank ESD safe labels to use with the Dymo?
thanks for your assistance...
I don't feel it would be a concern. Relative motion between or separation of two materials (solid, liquid or gas) is what causes the generation of static charges, and it could be assumed that since you're using ESD-safe bags, it's not the only ESD protection method in use.
If you don't plan on peeling off those labels as part of the process, I think it's fine; some people use the label to hold an ESD bag closed - in this case, it MUST be an ESD safe tape or label. If you do peel them off, follow ESD procedures (straps, mats, ionizers, whatever).
