Epoxies Etc. New Packaging Passes 4G Design Qualification Testing

May 12, 2015 – Making sure your products arrive intact and unharmed is just as important to us as high quality, quick delivery and good pricing. To help prevent our gallon cans of epoxies and urethanes from damage and leakage when they’re shipped to customers, we’ve found an efficient way to soften their impact.

After researching and testing numerous boxes and inserts, we developed custom packaging that features a strong, corrugated box with molded inserts to support the can and prevent shifting.

Our new packaging allows us to ship gallon cans up to 18 pounds with no damage. The packaging has been tested by a third party certification agency and received a UN 4G rating under Title 49CFR of the US Department of Transportation (DOT) Performance Oriented Packaging Standards, Section 178.

This packaging complies with domestic and international ground, air and ocean regulations. Certifications include:

  • International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG)
  • International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)
  • International Air Transport Association (IATA)
  • United Nations Committee of Experts of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods.
