Comments · 14 Views

With custom commercial packaging solutions, products and materials are not damaged nor contaminated while being transported. This cuts down on waste, saving time and money.

Manufacturers are always looking for ways to cut costs and improving profits. Streamlining processes is always a good place to start. So is outsourcing certain aspects of the manufacturing process. But there is one area in which many businesses fail to recognize the potential for savings. That is in special packaging. With custom commercial packaging solutions, products and materials are not damaged nor contaminated while being transported. This cuts down on waste, saving time and money.

Custom Industrial Packaging Solutions

Chemical packaging has always been difficult to achieve. Some solutions need to be shipped in specific containers. When they are not shipped properly, they can become damaged during shipping or containers can break spilling solutions. When products are wasted, money is lost. 

Types of Chemicals:

  • Adhesives
  • Lubricants
  • Coatings
  • Epoxies
  • Specialty Chemicals

All of these can become unstable during shipping and dispensing. It is important to be mindful of these things. 

How Can Custom Packaging Services Help the Supply Chain?

There are various ways in which packaging can help smooth out supply chain issues and cut down on waste. Some of the ways are listed below:

  • Packing Materials
  • Precise Application
  • Single Use Mixing with Bipacks
  • Easy-to-Use Performance Packaging
  • Single Use Packaging for Field Repair

Packing Materials

At Octochem, we utilize down packing which provides a way for solutions to be dispersed into more manageable containers. We provide single point-of-use containers. These are pre-measured, single use containers which improves dispensing accuracy and minimizes waste. 

Precise Application

Materials and chemical solutions that need no blending, can be packaged in a single cartridge. The cartridges can be sealed for later use so the solutions will not be wasted. The type of material and solutions best matched with this type of packaging are listed below:

  • Low viscosity fluids
  • Heavy pastes
  • Silicones
  • Latexes
  • Polyurethanes
  • Epoxies

Single Use Mixing with Bipacks

Bipacks are constructed of plastic. There are two components or compartments in the bipack, keeping solutions isolated. The clip can be removed and the solutions mixed by hand, simply by squeezing the plastic bipack. Once well mixed, the sleeve can be cut open and the solution dispensed. This packaging eliminates individual mixing so the solution is properly mixed for every application. It works best with:

  • OEM
  • MRO
  • Field Repair Kits

Easy-to-Use Performance Packaging

Product packaging services can introduce high-performance packaging options to your business. This can include dual cartridge dispensing packaging. This is normally utilized for two-part adhesives. This allows for proper blending of two separate materials. This type of packaging can also be resealed. It can also be used by various dispensing tools such as:

  • Manual
  • Powered
  • Pneumatic

Single Use Packaging for Field Repair

When in the field, it can be difficult to mix products to the proper consistency, but not with custom commercial packaging. Single use containers have one product inside to be mixed with another. It simplifies the mixing process.

In Conclusion

No matter what type of chemicals your business uses, custom packaging solutions can help.
