Toronto, Canada - Conforce International Inc. has received its first order for its newly developed polyurethane EKO-FLOR ms-1 special military container panels. The $1-million order was placed by US military contractor Sea Box Inc. in May 2008, the company said recently.
The EKO-FLOR ms-1 was developed using Baydur PUL 2500, a two-component polyurethane system from BaySystems, the umbrella brand for the global polyurethane operations of Bayer MaterialScience.
"The task we were given was to develop a variation of our cs-4 flooring profile to support military supplies stored in specialised containers around the world," said Conforce ceo Marino Kulas. "The objective was to produce a light-weight composite panel with load-bearing properties. We are happy to have met the challenge and as a result, we are confident that this development will enable us to supply EKO-FLOR panels for numerous military and non-military containers," added Klaus.
"We were pleased to leverage our technical expertise and materials for this project, which has resulted in the availability of a superior and more environmentally friendly product for the shipping container market," said Bayer MaterialScience representative, Craig Snyder.
Conforce International is a Toronto-based shipping, storage, and handling specialist that has been in the shipping container business for over 25 years.
