Protecting Your Valuables in an Emergency

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Have you ever considered what would happen to your irreplaceable possessions during a hurricane or flood? Well, it is better to address this situation now, rather than after the fact. Your irreplaceable possessions are, after all, irreplaceable.

So how can you ensure that your valuables, important documents and heirlooms are safe?

Consider investing in an injection molded case, which will help keep your valuable possessions – birth certificates, jewelry, passports, stocks and bonds, etc. – safe in the event of a house flood. These cases, while expensive, can withstand being knocked around by floodwaters and can even be submerged in water.

So be proactive and protect your possessions with an injection molded case from Packaging Strategies Incorporated.

Hurricane-Proofing Your Valuables

Rotationally Molded (Roto-Molded) Cases from PSI

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

What is a Roto-Molded Case?

Commonly referred to as a roto-molded case, rotationally molded cases are cost-effective shipping cases produced using a special, three-stage rotational molding process. Roto-molded cases are light-weight, seamless, stress-free products to meet precise requirements much more economically than injection molding or blow molding.

What is the Rotational Molding Process?

The rotational molding process is a three-stage, no-pressure, plastic molding process.

  1. The mold slowly rotates in two planes as heat transfer causes the plastic charge to melt and conform to the interior of the mold. This is known as the Heating Stage.
  2. The mold is then cooled by either air, water spray, or a combination of the two. This is known as the Cooling Stage.
  3. The product is removed from the mold and a new charge is inserted. This is known as the Load/Unload Stage.

What can be created using the Rotational Molding Process?

Aside from the shipping cases, rotational molding can also be used to produce a wide variety of items, from toy dolls to agricultural equipment.

What are the Benefits of Roto-Molded Cases?

These shipping cases have many benefits, including:

  • One-piece construction;
  • Lightweight
  • Superior strength
  • Extremely durable
  • Easily customizable
  • The ability to integrate metal parts and graphics
  • Low production cost
  • Unlimited design possibilities!
