Do you require a 2 Part Pouch?

2 part foil pouchProtective Packaging’s laminated barrier foil pouch with two separated compartments offers a packaging solution for incompatible products.

The compartments maintain the individual integrity of the two essential elements during packing, gamma-ray sterilisation and any other required process, delivery and storage. At point of use, the vulnerable, frangible seal is ruptured and the two counterparts of the final product are mixed together. The complete product can then be dispensed directly from the pack as a pre-dosed amount.

Alaaaarm Test!

Here at Protective Packaging we take health and safety very seriously. Mr John Budden will vouch for that I am sure, as he is the health and safety officer. Every Friday Mr Budden travels round to all the different departments and does his very famous Alaaaarm test voice to let us all know it is time to check the alarms. We also have a yearly ‘proper’ alarm test, where the alarms are randomly set off and we all have to exit via the fire exit doors and go to the fire assembly point which is based in our car park. A register is then taken to make sure we are all there and everything is A ok.

Another safety issue we put in place a couple of years ago was the ‘yellow brick road’ basically we are not allowed to cross the yard without a yellow vest, and so a yellow path has been put into place for us to walk safely around the yard without coming into contact with any truck drivers which may be loading/unloads goods at the time.

We consider ourselves to be protected with health and safety here at Protective Packaging, and for that we thank Mr John Budden for putting the appropriate changes into place.

Watch your Ps and Qs!”

Where does this saying originate? – in the lively pubs of long ago when feelings were running high and fists were ready for action – the landlord would shout the warning to watch the pints and quarts before the tables were upended? – Or in the printing trade when the apprentice compositor was warned to watch his Ps and Qs and make sure his spelling was in good order? – Or in the nursery to ensure the child behaved?

What do you want to protect?

Foil packaging for aerospace industryProtective Packaging were asked by an Italian customer to assist in packing some equipment here in the UK that was being shipped to Italy.

As it was oversized it would not fit into a standard shipping container or road trailer so had to be shipped on a low loader.

We supplied and fitted the Barrier Foil Bag and we used our ProDriPole Desiccant inside to protect the equipment from any moisture ingress during transit.

It was then covered in Heat Shrink Polythene by one of our Export Packing customers before being secured to the trailer.

It went on a roll on roll off ferry from Southampton to Italy along with some other equipment which was packed in a standard shipping container.

We had a report back some weeks later that the equipment had arrived in excellent condition and was being commissioned straight away.

Can you guess what is was?

CushioningAt Protective Packaging we supply self adhesive cushioning which is a closed cell polyethylene foam generally used to prevent damage to the foil bag from the goods inside rubbing against the bag. The foam is usually used to cover up any sharp or rough edges on the product or used on the inside of timber packing cases to protect the outside of the foil bag. When used inside the foil bag, it does not affect the amount of desiccant required because of its closed cell structure and therefore does not class as dunnage.

Protective Packaging stock two standard widths of cushioning: 5cm and 10cm, both are 6mm thick. Non-standard widths are available on request. A ‘bundle’ of 10 rolls at 10m long each is purchased at a time.

The foam is very easy to use and does not require stapling or gluing – just peel off the back of the foam and get sticking!
