The following AeroPackaging products are regularly-implemented solutions to the special challenges of this demanding group of products. The packaging performance needs of the clean packaging industry include:
- Low particulate contamination
- Abrasion resistance
- Low ionic contamination
Clear Nylon 6 Sheets
Nylon sheets of all sizes are used to cover the ends of tubing or open orifices on valves and fittings. Special attention is often given to threaded surfaces by wrapping a square sheet over the area before putting the product into a bag or tube.
Clear Nylon Tubing
Lay-flat nylon tubing of all sizes is used to cover long parts by sealing both open ends with a heat sealer. In critical packaging applications, the material may be purged with an inert gas and/or vacuum packaged. Due to the high gas barrier properties of nylon, it will hold a vacuum for long periods.
Natural Poly Tubing
Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) tubing is used in the same way nylon tubing is used; the application often calls for a second outer covering of clean film and, with its lower cost, poly is an excellent material to use. Poly is tough and clean, as well as low in ionic contamination.
