Sometimes it just takes a trained eye. Ted Dangelmayer has that in the field of electro-static discharge prevention (ESD or static charges): a trained eye. Ted and his team of scientists hunt factory floors, shipping rooms, or wherever there is potential for ESD strikes that ruin circuits, create defects, and/or endanger workers. Like the CSI TV shows, they follow a formulated procedure, based on their many years of experience, to find the systems’ weaknesses. Ted and his team then recommend corrective action to their clients, typically a small expenditure when compared to the return the company receives in better product quality and reputation. Many times such a change requires retraining personnel, which Ted and his team will expertly do.
Liberty Intercept Blog
While cleaning out the office this holiday season, we came across our very first newsletter sent by U.S. Mail to our contacts in 1996. Since the inception of Liberty Packaging, our basic marketing philosophy has been to share information about Intercept Technology™ packaging materials. Seventeen years later, it occurs to me that the information shared remains as valuable now to any company manufacturing electronics; devices, boards, and assembling full units. Intercept Technology barrier packaging was disruptive technology compared to the rest of the barrier products in use at that time.

As my gift to you, I present the Triquetra, the Celtic Trinity Knot.
Interlacing pattern design within the endless knot dates back to the Roman Empire, where they were used as decorations on floor mosaics and architecture. These knot design has been found in other historical civilizations, most notably traced to the Celts during the Iron Age, when the Celts became experts at making jewelry and other artisanal items. There are many designs and some are quite sophisticated in their patterns. The Triquetra has three corners, so was embraced by early Christians to represent the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Other religious groups have also identified with this three-cornered weave design to represent mind, body and spirit or peace, joy, and love.

To continue my series of household applications using Intercept to protect personal belongings from rust/corrosion, mold and mildew, here is a story about my snow blower.
“Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift.” ~Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
“All excesses are inimical to Nature. It is safer to proceed a little at a time, especially when changing from one regimen to another.” ~Hippocrates (c.460 - 400 BC)
He’s tall. In winter time, he wears a hat from his collection of Stetsons and his face, underneath these wide brimmed cowboy-style hats, looks like Gregory Peck. He has a deep voice to accent his command of words and concepts.
To continue my series of household applications using Intercept to protect my personal belongings from rust/corrosion, mold and mildew, I present to you my backyard “Tent of Meeting”. Liberty Packaging sells Intercept packaging to numerous companies in the United States for the protection of their industrial goods. Intercept has allowed many manufacturers to ship and store products safely anywhere in the world. Due to my experimentation and success with home use of Intercept for unusual applications, I daresay I’ll soon be Intercept’s best proponent.
As we approach the warmer, moister summer months, when corrosion is more prevalent, let’s address this simple question: “what is corrosion?” I spent an evening browsing the web for corrosion definitions, some were specific, some in the middle with regard to complexity, and some broader and more profound. Here are two of my favorites:
....because for a guitarist, touching strings is personal.
If you have been in the music equipment business for any length of time, you may know of the copper Corrosion Intercept string bag pictured at left. Intercept Technology is a Bell Labs innovation which protects products from rust and corrosion, mold and mildew, and static charges. Intercept enables this protection while not releasing any volatile chemicals. Your products inside Intercept will remain fresh and your customers and employees are assured not to have complex chemicals on their fingers from playing your strings or in their lungs from inhaling.

This post continues my series on how I have implemented Intercept protective films for my home owners possession protection and how Intercept has limited me from having to buy the same things at the home improvement stores over and over again. Let me tell you about my over 20-year-old air conditioner unit. It is on its last legs. This story is not about the A/C solely, actually it is more about the back-up portable fans I save for when the A/C is down and needs repair.
