Frequently Asked Questions

  • How to use spray foam for packing?
    Spray foam like LPS Industries’ Instapak Quick Expanding Liquid Foam Packaging can be used to create a custom, cushioning, and effective packing solution by following these steps: Remove the bag from the warmer, unfold it completely, and lay it on a flat surface. Apply pressure to the area marked “Press Here” on the lower left side of the bag. This will open the inside seal. Alternate between patting part “A” and part “B.” This will cause the bag to expand. While the foam bag is expanding, quickly place it in the shipping box with the product in it. Ensure that the product is nestled by the bag so it is protected. Repeat steps 1-3 and place the second foam bag on top of the product while it is expanding. Close and secure the flaps on the shipping box.
  • What is a combination package?
    A combination package is any kind of packaging that is comprised of one or more inner packings that are secured by outer packaging. The innermost packing components are to protect the container with the hazardous material within it, while the outer packing protects the inner packing from getting damaged during transit.
  • Is it okay for a hazmat label to wrap around the edge of a box?
    No. Labels need to be permanently attached or printed onto one side, or one surface, of the packaging.
  • Solvent-based vs. solventless lamination.
    Solvent-based and solventless lamination are similar but different types of packaging film that can protect a product in shipping and transit. Solvent-based lamination is a type of adhesive that gets dissolved in a solvent, creating a liquid adhesive that is then applied to a material. After being applied, this solvent evaporates and leaves behind the adhesive, which bonds the material together after hardening. Solventless lamination has a similar effect but achieves it using adhesives that do not contain solvent, which means there is no need for the film to dry. This makes solventless lamination ideal for protecting ready-to-eat foods, frozen goods, fresh produce, and boil-in-bag pouches, along with non-food items like stationary, cosmetics, and medical supplies.
  • What is inner packaging?
    Inner packaging is the packing material that secures and protects the container holding hazardous material. Inner packaging is protected by the outer packaging, and it requires outer packaging to be transported.
