    Abstract: A substrate in the form of a film is described for producing a corrosion inhibiting atmosphere for the storage and transport of exposed bare metal parts to inhibit rust or corrosion of the metal parts. In one form, the substrate is a co-extruded film having one layer for providing shape and form to the film when moulded into a specific shape and the other layer containing a vapour corrosion inhibitor (VCI) for being admitted from the surface of the layer to form the corrosion inhibiting atmosphere. Other structures of the film are possible including triple layers and the like. The co-extruded film is formed by vacuum moulding optionally with pressure forming assist to form the film into a semi-rigid or rigid shape for fitting over or enveloping the metal part to be protected.

  • Patent number: 7972558
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for sterilizing packaging material for use in packaging for protein containing products, such as food products or medical drugs. The packaging material is sterilized by irradiating it using a beam of ionizing radiation, such as an electron beam or a beam of gamma rays. Afterwards, the packaging material is processed in such a manner that protein reactive substances or compounds formed in the packaging material during the irradiation step are at least partly removed or rendered inreactive with respect to proteins. The processing step may advantageously be performed by heating the packaging material. Preferably, the processing step involves accelerating diffusion from the packaging material of protein reactive substances or compounds. Since the protein reactive substances or compounds are removed or rendered inreactive with respect to proteins, degradation of the product which is later stored in the packaging material is considerably reduced.

    Abstract: A method for producing sealed packages filled with fluid material wherein a limited amount of the material is delivered into a predetermined length of flexible, thermoplastic tubing, the major portion of which is wound on a primary reel, and the remainder of which is wound on a secondary reel. The amount is less than that required to completely fill the tubing, thus providing a slug of fluid material in the tubing on the primary reel and a vacant space in the tubing on the secondary reel. The amount of tubing on the secondary reel is calculated in advance to be equal in length to that portion of tubing required for the production of heat-sealed closures along the length of the tubing. The slug of material is displaced toward the secondary reel, thus creating a vacant space at the end of the tubing on the primary reel, and the tubing is rewound onto the primary reel.
