SSI Schaefer has developed extruded containers using its Intercept technology. This allows users to protect goods against corrosion during transport, shipment and storage under extreme conditions and reduce process costs while reducing overall carbon footprint impact.

Corrosive gases such as salts, sulphur compounds, ozone and nitrogen cause susceptible stored goods to rust during long-term storage or overseas transport. To protect commercial items, goods are treated with complex processes such as oils, waxes or a vacuum to prevent contact between the corrosive atmosphere and the packaged goods. These protective substances must then be removed before being used or processed, which is not only timeconsuming but very costly.

Chemical substances are frequently released into the atmosphere during this process, which has a big impact on both the environment and staff involved.

Intercept was developed to protect virtually any material from all climatic conditions and environmental influences.

They also do not emit chemical gases, can be recycled and meet work safety requirements.

The containers are available in three different versions: with corrosion protection; conductive ESD containers; and containers with ESD and corrosion protection.

The application is guaranteed up to 15 years and meets legal requirements for product labelling.
