More Than Just Fire Retardant Film

Posted by Joe Spitz on Dec 17, 2018 12:48:50 PM

Lately, we have had more requests for our fire retardant film, known as ATFR. The most unique aspect of this NASA tested and approved ATFR is that not only is the plastic film a clean halogen-free fire retardant (FR) polyethylene film, but it also dissipates static charges or arcing. Isn’t that smart, not only to prevent fires after ignition, but also aiding as a barrier in preventing fire from igniting in the first place. Being static dissipative, ATFR is great for keeping electronic devices safe from electrostatic damage (ESD).

What Makes a Chopper?

Posted by Joe Spitz on Jun 11, 2018 3:01:41 PM

In a recent conversation, a prospect looking at our web site saw the picture of the efficiently barrier-wrapped helicopters for storage and commented that “this barrier packaging may be too much” for them. In sales and marketing, that is one of the problems with showing the most impressive applications! Folks may think that they are priced out of usage, but in most instances, that is not the case.

New Corrosion Control Program

Posted by Greg Spitz on Mar 28, 2018 5:46:03 PM

Consider this statement on corrosion from the Government Accountability Office in 2011:

“Corrosion destroys equipment, decreasing readiness and reliability while causing safety hazards and increasing maintenance and other ownership costs. The Department of Defense (DoD) estimates corrosion costs the department over $23 billion annually.”

Total Cost Assessment - Case Studies

Posted by Joe Spitz on Feb 7, 2018 4:43:12 PM

iStock-513224340.jpgLiberty Packaging has always advocated for purchasing from the perspective of a Total Cost Assessment, as opposed to simply seeking the best pricing on materials, a philosophy whereby quality may be sacrificed and the ability to streamline optimal processes is lost.  Here we present some case studies that a few manufacturers within the automobile industry were kind enough to share with our Intercept Technology Group Worldwide.

Retail vs Industrial Packaging: Yin and Yang

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Nov 28, 2017 4:18:53 PM

From Wikipedia: “In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang (陰陽 yīnyáng, lit. "dark-bright", "negative-positive") describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.” The intent of retail packaging versus that of packaging for industrial use may seem unrelated at first glance, but I maintain they are most certainly connected.

4 Ways to Help Combat the Problem of Condensation and Corrosion

Posted by Joe Spitz on Oct 23, 2017 2:25:35 PM

Here’s a simple question: what happens when something cold is then exposed to a hot and humid atmosphere? That’s easy, of course, “sweat” forms on the surface of the cold item. For instance, your cold drinks in the summer where there is a surprisingly large quantity of water droplets dripping off the glass or can. That condensation can lead to corrosion problems when shipping your valuable products to docks and into operations where you have less control; especially if your company is shipping globally and/or to areas where the climates are generally warmer. It can actually be an issue most anywhere.

Exporting to a Polluted World

Posted by Joe Spitz on Aug 8, 2017 10:20:45 AM

Please let us share some information about shipping to polluted climates, in which air quality is worsening around the globe. I will explain this issue from a very humanistic approach and that is with statistics around global human death. In a 2014 report, the World Health Organization, which monitors this information, estimates that worldwide air pollution exposure is now the leading cause for death, over seven million people, one in eight total global deaths. “Air pollution is now the world’s largest single environmental health risk” the report reads.
