Industries and households all over the world require a myriad of chemicals daily. Many of these chemicals are hazardous but are inescapable parts of day-to-day activities such as maintenance, operating and manufacturing activities, industrial, agricultural, as well as household activities.
End users demand chemicals that are strong, effective, and efficient. With these increasing requisites, the need for well-designed, robust, and sturdy packaging has become crucial. Without effective packaging, these aggressive chemical formulations can deform the packaging, make the containers leaky and create safety hazards for handlers and users.
Traditional Packaging Drawbacks
Ventilation is essential for many chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide, pesticides and fertilizers, bleach, etc. as they release gases or scavenge oxygen when packed and left sealed. Packaging failure can also be attributed to other factors, such as temperature & altitude fluctuations during transit and environmental conditions during storage, creating a pressure differential. Accumulation of these vapours leads to packaging failure, which can end up creating hazardous situations for the handlers, users, as well as the environment.
In addition, when non-vented containers store these aggressive chemicals, their packing performance reduces gradually, resulting in the container bloating or panelling. The deformation leads to leakages, which can cause health hazards due to exposure.
Apart from the human health hazard, packaging failure can make the chemical ineffective, affect the shelf life of the product, reputation of the brand and the manufacturer, causes financial losses, and requires messy clean-ups.
PTFE Venting Solutions
To tackle the problems associated with storing chemicals that need venting, incorporating PorVent® PTFE Vents into your packaging is an excellent solution. Below are some of the benefits of using these vents.
