Australian Packaging Silver Award winner
28/03/2012 - Under Raps receives Silver award for break bulk packaging using Corrosion Intercept® technology
The Award was for outstanding developments in industrial packaging. Entries demonstrated technical, logistical and/or functional developments which promote efficiency, sustainability and/or reduce environmental impact. This Award was open to packaging for – bulk transport, manufacturing components for further assembly, machinery, etc.
By combining heat shrink technology with large format Intercept anticorrosion film, Under-Raps™ has developed a valuable solution for the packaging of large complex objects like helicopters, marine craft, mining equipment and sensitive electronic control rooms.
Large equipment like this is often trucked over gravel roads, loaded in salty ports and delivered to dusty mining sites. The anti-corrosion LDPE film protects against dust, rain, rust, insects and even adds a quarantine barrier. The use of highest quality virgin plastic is offset in part by the elimination of anti-corrosion cleaning processes required previously. The inclusion of a unique zipper feature means packs can be opened and resealed for forklift use, inspection or fumigation access. This eliminates the need to cut and reseal or rewrap during loading operations. The concept saves time, money, handling, leaks, cleaning, and protects against deterioration, damage, and returns. The logistical improvement is significant and judges were impressed by the creative approach and technical ingenuity demonstrated by this entry.
