Madison Heights, Michigan -- Sika Corp.'s Industry Products Division has added 400 ml unipacs to its polyurethane product packaging.
Sika claims its introduction of these packs offers advantages to customers including:
* Cost savings;
* Higher productivity; and
* Better efficiency/sustainability.
The more cost-effective packaging is reflected in prices, Sika says, with nozzles and adapters enclosed in each carton. Shipping costs are reduced due to higher pallet packing densities.
Customers will gain productivity advantages compared to 300 ml cartridges, since they will need to change unipacs less frequently and will be able to use urethane normally trapped in a conventional fixed nozzle cartridge. They maintain the advantage of being able to dispense product in tight applications where a 600 ml unipac gun cannot fit.
Use of 400 ml unipacs will contribute to efficiency and sustainability due to a greatly reduced waste stream; "a pallet of used cartridges fills a dumpster while a pallet of used 400 ml unipacs fills only a garbage bag," said Sika.
Multiple Sikaflex products will be available in the new 400 ml unipac pack, including high quality transport, marine and AGR adhesives, primers and cleaners.
