New York -- Sentina Inc., a New York-based producer of protective cargo coverings, has a US patent for its reusable, vacuum-sealable, and tamper-evident covering.
Sentina creates sustainable packagings that prevent unauthorised opening - and in the process protect shipments from water damage, theft, and inclusion of unwanted substances.
The containers are made of a durable nylon fabric with a thickpolyurethane coating, and are easy to apply. A special zipper and vacuumport create security and shipment-integrity not achieved withtraditional cargo wrappings, the company says.
Designed to meet government standards regarding safe, secure cargo, these one-piece coverings fully encapsulate shipments and are vacuum-sealed. This provides an airtight, watertight, and secure environment that protects against both intentional and unintentional tampering - from the moment it is applied until the moment it is removed.
Any tampering of the cover or its contents is immediately evident - which the company says offers peace of mind to manufacturers and shippers.
"Corporations worldwide are continually looking for ways to insure the integrity of their goods in transit, while also attempting to reduce the overall costs, and harmful waste, associated with one-time use packagings. Sentina coverings meet these needs," claims Jeff Garfinkle, president.
Sentina's coverings can also be used multiple times - offering a cost-effective, environmentally improved alternative to disposable, non-recyclable products currently in use, the company said.
