Vertrauen Chemie Solutions provides Chemical Packaging
Reliable chemical packaging is crucial to avert health, physical, and environmental hazards during the shipping and storage of materials and goods. In the case of bulk liquids, this presents an even greater challenge. Moreover, different chemicals and raw materials have different properties, requiring manufacturers to use custom packaging solutions for each of them. This is why packaging startups and companies offer a range of chemical packaging solutions.
US-based startup Vertrauen Chemie Solutions (VCS) develops chemical packaging solutions for hard-to-handle liquids. The company creates custom blending and packaging for chemicals such as coatings, solvents, polyols, and isocyanates. It also offers contract manufacturing solutions for the aerospace, automotive, construction, marine, and oil & gas (O&G) sectors.
INDEVCO Plastics offers Flexible Packaging
Bulk items such as clay, sand, cement, and minerals show material differences that can be handled by using flexible packaging as non-rigid materials are applied to pack different kinds of items. By using sustainable raw materials, flexible packaging solutions also lower carbon emissions. Based on this, startups are developing flexible packaging solutions that provide high performance while lowering the carbon footprint of shipping bulk items.
INDEVECO Plastics is a US-based company offering flexible packaging solutions. It uses post-consumer, post-industrial, and virgin resins to produce polyethylene centerfold sheeting. The startup’s product finds applications in packaging building products, agricultural minerals, petrochemicals, etc. Additionally, the packaging solution offers high seal performance, high puncture and burst resistance as well as custom clarity and stiffness.
Bizongo produces Food & Beverages Packaging
The bulk transport of food & beverages requires special considerations to prevent spoilage. Therefore, startups develop protective packaging solutions that extend the life of fresh produce during transport. These solutions reduce both food and packaging waste. Moreover, they are versatile, offer transparency, and cost-efficiency while buying or selling wholesale amounts of food.
Indian startup Bizongo develops packaging solutions for food and beverage businesses. The company offers sustainable and damage-proof packaging that protects products across the life-cycle. The startup also offers comprehensive assistance in packaging development and optimization. Moreover, Bizongo’s packaging solutions meet the needs of dairy, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), and eCommerce, to name only a few sectors.
Plexform works on Industrial Bulk Packaging
Many industries receive large shipments of raw materials or transport processed goods across facilities. Industrial bulk packaging solutions meet the needs of different sectors and across volumes ranging from tens of kilograms to tonnes. The unique material handling capacities of such solutions find applications in minerals & mining, pharma, and construction to name a few industries.
Canadian startup Plexform offers a wide range of industrial bulk packaging solutions. The startup produces side load and top load bulk containers in different options and sizes. It also offers bag carts, tote dunnage, and custom plastic totes. This serves the packaging needs of global supply chains for automotive, industrial, and construction manufacturers.
Interface Polymers develops Anti-Fogging Packaging
Many products, such as food items, contain a lot of water. As a result, fog develops on the plastic packaging leading to food spoilage. This is why packaging startups are experimenting with new materials. For instance, additives and coatings change the property of the packaging film, providing an anti-fogging mechanism.
Interface Polymers is a British startup developing packaging solutions based on polyolefin. The startup’s Polarfin anti-fog additives increase the surface energy of polyolefin-based packaging. This causes water droplets to coalesce into thin layers, eliminating fogging. The startup’s packaging film promotes long-term anti-fouling performance for food and medical packaging.
