5 More Reasons for Packaging with Intercept

Posted by Joe Spitz on Mar 31, 2016 3:09:00 PM

Aren’t all anti-corrosion packaging materials the same?

No. Barrier protection products work in vastly different ways. The Intercept Technology line of products protects in two ways. First, they act as a moisture barrier. Second, Intercept reacts with and permanently neutralizes corrosive gases to form a corrosive gas barrier. This dual form of protection eliminates the two elements needed to form atmospheric corrosion. Intercept’s mechanism for protection is sacrificial, therefore, it won’t contaminate the product it’s protecting. The typical “waterproof” or vapor barrier bag/shroud concept is to attempt to keep the atmosphere and/or relative humidity from the protected product; whereas the emitting protection products, packaging and canisters, will surround the product with a volatile vapor.

Are desiccants needed with Intercept products?

Yes and no. If there are no large voids in the package, then the Intercept will react with the corrosive gases within the package and eliminate the potential danger without desiccating. However, if there are large voids that don’t allow the Intercept material to be close to some areas, then it would be best to utilize desiccants, making sure that the desiccants are not directly touching metals. Please consult with us for your recommended usage.

Top 5 Questions About Intercept Technology Packaging

Posted by Greg Spitz on Nov 16, 2015 7:05:00 PM

Here are some of the questions we have received and answered most recently:

1. Can I have Intercept in pre-made shrouds/bags? Yes. In addition to our standard on-shelf sizes, Intercept Packaging material can be custom converted to best fit whatever size you need.

2. Does Intercept fit into a reusable packaging program? Absolutely. In fact, it is the best packaging material to choose and a reusable program can be accomplished by choosing Intercept flexible films or fabrics and/or rigid trays, totes and lids.

Packaging the Remarkable List - 2014

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Jan 2, 2015 10:53:00 AM

The end of the year is always marked by all sorts of lists and countdowns. I enjoy the symbolism of ending one chapter and beginning of another, and there is no more natural time than now to do this.

Packaging The Terminator

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Nov 4, 2013 12:24:00 PM

Do you remember The Terminator? No, not the Governator, the Terminator. In those movies there was always the moment where you believed The Terminator was done for. Then he (or she, let’s not forget number three) would recoup from his or her injuries, sometimes melting down to the molten base metallic goo and then reforming into his terrifying self.

Top Two Corrosion Definitions

Posted by Joe Spitz on Jun 19, 2012 11:33:00 AM

 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:

I’m a Fan of Intercept Packaging: Protection for My Home Possessions

Posted by Joe Spitz on Apr 26, 2012 10:14:00 PM

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.

The Packaging of Pollution

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Apr 5, 2012 11:14:00 AM

From guest poster Albert Greenhut, of Engineered Materials, Inc.

Those who have followed my writing may have the inkling that I am fairly green-minded. I base my beliefs on many issues upon my ideas about how life should be lived as a member of the world community, including taking responsibility for your actions and showing respect toward others.

For my entire life I have thought of Los Angeles as the pollution capital of the United States of America. This has to do with the timing of the rise of the automobile and the city planning of LA itself. Cars were becoming popular and room for trains got squeezed out of the planning, leaving what was soon to become one of the world’s largest cities without much potential for public transport.
