Packing is meant to protect both humans and the environment. Products must be packed in an
appropriateway to allow for proper shipping , storage and use by the customer. Prior to issuing a
product on the market, numerous checks are carried out to ensure stability for primary packing
and reagent quality over a prolonged storage period after shipping.
Concerning hazardous substances shipping, BIOCHEM CHEMOPHARMA packing technicians
continually check and optimize packing so as to be providedwith relevant authorizations
(=N° UN). The following criteria are taken into account :
-Meeting all safety requirements,
-Meeting quality requirements, even after prolonged storage,
- No interaction between packingmaterial and packed substance,
- No unalloyed reagent contamination,
- Practical packing,
-Environmental friendly packing.
Relevant packing and reference order explanations follow :
Plastic container
2.5 L, 5 L, 10 L and 25 L PEHD containers are used for acids, bases and aqueous solutions. These
come in black colour when light-sensitive products are involved. Connecting and sampling are
also available.
Aluminiumflasks are used in part for some solvents as unbreakable packing.
Benefit : 100% leak free.
Glass flask
As glass is inert matter, it is fit for use with corrodents. Glass flasks come in brown colour, which
will help protect light-sensitive products. Being watertight and impervious to vapour, they allow
for great stability and henceforth prolonged storage. They are fitted with an S 28 or S 40 sealing
system. Glass flasks for solids are fitted with an S 60 or S 85 sealing system. Benefit: optimal
imperviousness, pressure stability. Glass flasks are shipped in UN cases with adapted inner
casings (polystyrene or corrugated cardboard).
