When it comes to dealing with chemical packaging, it's understandable that there are many regulations in place, varying by state, federal and international requirements. Labels should contain the pertinent product information and provide Occupational Safety and Health Administration-mandated GHS information. Per OSHA, there are eight data points required on a chemical label:
You need to be able to trust the packages used to store and transport your chemicals. There are several potential hazards that present themselves when it comes to dealing with these sensitive materials:
Automated packaging is necessary for chemicals that pose risks to humans. Like those that are either highly acidic or basic, which can cause burns. The reduction of human interaction reduces the risk of harm.
Chemicals high in hydrocarbons can pose a physical risk - like aerosol sprays, vehicle fuels, pesticides and alcohols.
This protects the chemical from outside forces and keeps us safe from the chemical. This requires air-tight packaging that prevents evaporation and does not degrade over time.
Some chemicals come in a two-part process, which requires two component systems. These chemicals are intended to be combined down the road, resulting in a reaction. However, the reaction should not occur until it gets to its final destination. That’s where two component systems come in, as they keep the products paired but separate.
A wide range of industrial markets utilize chemical packaging for a variety of products. Looking further into how they utilize chemical packaging, you can see the scope of work that is accomplished.
Chemicals play a critical role in developing both consumer and industrial battery power applications with both disposable and rechargeable batteries.
The distribution and automation of electrical power requires chemicals for manufacturing, installation and equipment maintenance. From electric networks to power generators - there is a demand for careful and attentive chemical packaging.
These are only several examples, but the list goes on. Custom chemical packaging is utilized for medical, consumer and lighting products. With regard to each market’s specifications, KitPackers designs application-specific chemical packaging.
