Handle with care

SSI Schaefer has developed extruded containers, which are designed to protect goods from corrosion during transport, shipment and storage under extreme conditions.

The containers use Intercept Technology which was developed to protect virtually any material from all climatic conditions and environmental influences. The system uses porous copper particles embedded into a polymer matrix which react with corrosive gases in the atmosphere neutralising them.

SSI Schaefer has used this technology and anti-corrosion method in the manufacture of injection moulded containers.

No artificial atmosphere is generated and penetrating humidity is freed of corrosive elements, reducing the load in the atmosphere and ensuring better protection for employees, even with direct contact.

Three types of container are available: containers with corrosion protection, conductive ESD containers, and containers with ESD and corrosion protection.
