Chemicals and Adhesives - Eliminating transportation hazards
SilverSkin® Thermal Covers for Chemicals and Adhesives
Unsurprisingly, temperature-controlled protection for transporting chemicals and adhesives is absolutely essential if cold shocks are to be avoided. Sometimes known for their volatility, the correct shipping and storage conditions for chemicals and adhesives must be adhered to throughout transit and will vary depending on the nature of each shipment.
SilverSkin® thermal covers for chemicals and adhesives are designed to provide a multitude of benefits, by offering protective and insulative layers which help moderate external conditions that could potentially compromise the products.
SilverSkin® Features for chemicals and adhesives
Protects during on and off-loading
Combatting the elements
As a rule of thumb, many chemicals and adhesives are resilient to heat. However, as temperatures climb above stated limits, some liquid chemicals and adhesives will react or bond, rendering them unusable. Worse still, excessive heat can generate expansion, causing vessels to fracture. Should temperatures rise above their flash point, combustible liquids may catch fire. On the other hand, flammable liquids become dangerous under their flash point, releasing vapours into the air which can ignite. Additionally, containers can crack when they freeze, resulting in leaks and contamination.
Moisture is the enemy of many chemicals and adhesives which are shipped and stored in powder form. SilverSkin™ thermal covers for chemicals and adhesives are a specialist, robust, insulation solution for temperature-sensitive freight that help mitigate temperature variations and moisture.
A range for all seasons
Recognised for their safety and efficiency, manufacturers often prefer drums and barrels as a means of transporting or storing compounds and liquids. SilverSkin® drum covers for chemicals and adhesives allow shipped products to withstand temperature-related spoilage often encountered on the tarmac. By delaying heat transfer during exposure to windchill, direct sunlight or sub-zero temperatures, SilverSkin® air cargo covers for chemicals and adhesives offer the same protection whilst goods are stored on cookie sheets, aircraft ramps and in aircraft holds.
Developed using the latest, most advanced technologies and materials, SilverSkin® covers for chemicals and adhesives provide a water-resistant barrier against condensation and contamination, as well as providing a tamper-evident barrier. Both single and palletised multi-drum consignments can be transported confidently with all products being qualified against stringent testing procedures.
Innovation for protection
With temperature spikes an ever-present menace during transportation, the entire SilverSkin® thermal protection range for chemicals and adhesives is designed to offer peak performance in all transit situations.
Aside from their highly reflective qualities and ability to provide temperature stability and durability, our next-generation thermo-quilts are lightweight, easy to fit and economical in use, affording minimum storage footprints. They come in various insulation layers, thicknesses and weights to suit your shipping needs and budget.
