ESD & PillowStat packaging

Packaging that has improved electro static discharge properties to ensure safe shipping of sensitive components.

Full Quantity Tubes

A selected range of ICs are also available within full quantity tubes. Select the type that meets your needs from an extensive range of quantities and package sizes. This easy-to-use packaging offers a convenient storage solution for products used regularly and significantly reduces component handling, at no additional cost.

Free Re-reeling Service

Thousands of surface mount components re-reeled to customer specific quantities, offering no more wasted components or unused stock at no extra cost! This is limited for cut tape orders that are longer than 18" — at no charge. Re-reeled to EIA standards, this service is available for thousands of top brand components. Quantity of parts required for 18" cut tape length varies with product case size.

Available on a wide range of capacitors, resistors, inductors, diodes, transistors, optos and IC's from market-leading manufacturers. You can find out more about free re-reeled products here.

Full Reels

An extensive range of resistors, capacitors and inductors are now available on full reels. Buy in high quantities for lower prices and get your full requirement of components on a single reel, complete with manufacturers' leader and trailer tape.

Continuous Strip

All components available on tape and reel are delivered on one continuous strip – reducing waste and improving production efficiency.

Moisture Sensitive Packaging

Save time and effort with our "ready to use" packaging for moisture sensitive components. Available on thousands of components from the industry's leading manufacturers, compliant to Jedec industry standards.


We're also expanding our cut tape offering for smaller sized IC devices, by repackaging on to tape reel. Cut tape orders that are more that 18" in length can be automatically re-reeled — at no extra cost.
