Lab Packs and Packaging Materials
Lab Packs: Take No Risks
When it comes to safety, no risks should be taken, and vermiculite is a safety necessity when packaging hazardous materials. It provides a cushion and is absorbent—essential for shipping the hazardous liquids. The benefits of vermiculite Lab Packs include:
It is lightweight, minimizing shipping costs, and is also clean and non-abrasive
Its free-flowing property makes for quick, easy coverage. This tight coverage minimizes impact and shock.
Naturally absorbent material
Because it is absorbent, it can safely retain accident leaks.
It is non-flammable and does not emit fumes or odors.
Non-Reactive and inorganic
Vermiculite is a naturally occurring and completely inert mineral, eliminating problems that occur in other forms of packaging materials. It will not react with most common chemicals, ensuring possible leaks will be contained and safe during transport. When properly packed, vermiculite lab-packs will safely hold chemical liquids up to 20 gallons (in a 55-gallon drum).
Exfoliate vermiculite can also be used to protect fragile objects. It is easily poured around irregularly shaped objects—hazardous and harmless alike—and provides a cushion against shock during handling and transportation.
It’s useful for packaging because of its unique qualities:
- Highly absorbent
- Does not emit fumes or odors
- Easy to use
- Sturdy, yet soft
What makes our packing vermiculite different
Our packing vermiculite has fine particles that fill the tiny crevices many larger vermiculite ores miss. This means your items are more secure and less susceptible to damage.
