3M Places SCC 1500 Metal-Out Static Bags on Ship-Hold

3M has removed their SCC 1500 Metal-out Static Shielding Bags from shipping-hold. After detailed testing, 3M believes the higher-than-claimed charge-retention values were due to a certain film used in the production of the 1500 Static Shielding Bags.

For further info, please refer to the updated Product Data Sheet below:

3M announced yesterday that their 3M™ SCC 1500 Metal-out Static Shielding Bags have been placed on shipping-hold. Recent testing indicated that the SCC 1500 Bags had an average peak voltage reading higher than their claimed value leading 3M to stop shipment as of November 22, 2013.
The 3M SCC 1500 Metal-out Static Shielding Bag has been put on shipping-hold.

Charge-retention testing of the SCC 1500 product resulted in an average peak voltage of 154 rather than the less than 100 volts expected. 3M is currently performing more extensive analyses of the SCC 1500 Static Shielding Bags and associated manufacturing practices. The bags will remain on hold until all testing is completed.

Q Source will provide periodic updates regarding the ship-hold and any pertinent action that may be required. 3M advises that SCC 1500 users closely examine this information and come to a conclusion regarding the appropriateness of this product for their applications.
