A potential client called Purestat and gave us the above phrase for what they needed in product. Basically it had to be able to be grounded; they preferred it to be conductive to avoid explosion danger since their product contains solvents; it had to be clean and not contaminate their liquid; it had to be heat sealable so that the film could be made into a water tight container or liner: and it had to be volatile free so that it would not contaminate the liquid in contact with it.
At PureStat we have been working with conductive plastics for over 25 years that coupled with engineering expertise and our full vertical manufacturing operation with film extrusion lamination clean rooms and converting made us ideally suited to tackle this challenge. Our two leading technologies are Pure-Stat™ line of anti-static plastics and our Blac-Stat™ line of conductive plastic films and bags. This particular request took us to the drawing board where we utilized our Blac-Stat™ conductive film and laminated it to a highly specialized, heavy duty metalized moisture barrier film. The resulting structure provided the heat seal-ability of the Blac-Stat™ product with the moisture vapor and liquid barrier properties required. The additional technical hurdles of keeping Blac-Stat™ non-reactive and non-staining to the liquid with an industrial solvent carrier were resolved with our knowledge of polymers and ability to “lock” the conductive carbon into the polymer structure. The resulted structure was put through rigorous testing in three countries, spanning two continents, and passed with flying colors. The product will soon be used as an industrial liner in extremely demanding applications, providing a more cost effective and far more environmentally friendly option for the transport, storage and application of this line of solvent based liquids. The solution made the difficult easy and saved money and the environment, keeping our commitment to our customer and to our pledge to help find and promote environmentally friendly alternatives in packaging.
We believe that our expertise can help you hone in on exactly what it is you want packaging to do for your product and that we can provide that. We have high expectations for ourselves and we believe you should have equally high expectations of your packaging products. Please give us the opportunity to serve you well by doing what we do best.
