In our last article, 3 Mistakes to Avoid When Shipping Products (link article), we discussed why protective packaging is important for fulfilling online orders.  For those of you that have never used protective packaging, it’s important to get help in order to learn more about which packaging you need for your specific products.  At Edco Supply Corporation, we will answer all of your questions and help identify what type of packaging you need.  That being said, it never hurts to know your options.  That’s why we’re offering a quick introduction to our products.

 

Moisture Barrier Bags – Since almost every product can be affected by moisture, moisture barrier bags are one of the most popular packaging solutions in the industry.  By protecting against humidity, it also protects against mold, mildew, and corrosion.

 

Desiccant Packs – Desiccant packs have the same effect as moisture barrier bags, but instead of being a bag that you put your products inside, they use desiccants to draw moisture from the air.

 

Humidity Indicator Cards – These cards do not protect against humidity, but they are able to identify the amount of moisture that your products are exposed to.  This will indicate if your moisture barrier bags and desiccant bags are doing their job, or if you need to reevaluate your packaging solutions.

 

Military Tape – Military tape has many uses, both in shipping, storage, and in everyday life.  Some of the military tape that we offer includes masking tape, filament tape, PVC tape, and copper foil tape.

 

Anti-Static Bags – Anti-static bags create a faraday cage effect that shields electronic devices from ESD and electrostatic fields.  It can be used for packaging electronics, missiles, explosives powder, micro circuits, and more.

 

VCI Paper – VCI paper is treated with engineered chemicals that prevent corrosion on protected metals.  It works by creating a protective layer that prevents salt, dirt, oxygen and other materials from depositing on the metal and causing corrosion.
