resin and PE Poly Pricing for December.

Image
The Polyethylene market was quite busy this past week, which spanned the end of Nov and beginning of Dec. Spot material availability remained plentiful and despite the significant strength in the energy complex, PE prices continued to slide - most grades shed another cent. Incremental export demand has languished and Houston warehouses are currently full of resin with packaging lines Running at capacity - some are booked through the end of the year. Export demand perked up amid lower asking prices and the surge in upstream energy, but the log-jam in Houston could pose a problem if suppliers look to purge inventory in December.
November PE contracts were down $.03/lb.; notwithstanding the relief, processors have been limiting purchases, opting to work down inventories as they anticipate another decrease in December.
In the Meantime, buyers have been tapping the spot market, which has been well discounted to contracts, to fill in supply gaps along the way. As such, we have seen a notable …

Keeping It Green at Quick Pak Inc for the Holidays!

Image
Here is the office Christmas tree from 3 years ago.  Most offices put the trees in the trash after the Holidays. 

But being the packaging professional’s we are here at Quick Pak Inc and with a lot of experience solving complicated packaging problems, we decided we could plant this tree and make it grow in the Florida heat.
Finding the correct spot for the tree was the most important part.  It had to allow for morning sun and afternoon shade from the oppressive heat of the summer sun.  Also allowing the tree to receive plenty of water from the summer rains. 
Three years later, here is our company Christmas tree enjoying the morning Florida Sun. 

Now it will be time to decorate the tree for the Holiday Season.

A note about staple types and specifications:  In order to select the proper staple for your stapler, the staple product code [STCR5019, JK670, DF308C, etc.] or tool make and model is required.  It is not sufficient to have only the physical dimensions of the staple [such as 7/16-inch crown width] because a given set of staple dimensions may be made in 2 or more different types of staple wire, intended for different tools and applications. Different types of wire are not interchangeable in a given stapler.

Lower UPS and Fedex Shipping Costs

Image
Do you put extra stamps on your envelopes with the hope they’ll arrive faster? Would you knowingly spend $25 to send a package that would have arrived a day earlier for only $5? Sometimes, you do get what you pay for, but when it comes to shipping packages, you can often pay more for less! Today, reducing shipping charges is critical to the success of an organization. Many times, the savings goes right to the bottom line. If you’re passing on the charges to your customers, the cost of shipping could be the difference between your company getting the order or your competitor getting it. A recent Forrester survey of 5,831 online shoppers found that 82% of respondents consider shipping costs paramount to their buying decisions. And there are at least a dozen ways that shippers large and small can reduce their freight costs.
Consolidate and Bundle.
This may be the single largest opportunity for UPS and Fedex shippers to reduce their freight costs. Just as larger packages offer a better v…

Stretch Wrapping vs. Shrink Wrapping - Understanding the Difference

Image
When it comes to protecting products, or holding products together and intact for transport; stretch and shrink wrapping are often employed. Although these two types of wrapping have many differences, they are often confused.   We aim to outline the differences between the two products and under what application they are both utilized.
Stretch wrapping
Shrink wrapping

What is it?  Stretch wrapping is stretchable plastic film that is wrapped around a load of products allowing it to be stretched; this elasticity holds the load tightly together.   

Shrink Wrapping is covered loosely around a product or load, it shrinks tightly when heat is applied.
What is it made from?  Made from Polyethylene plastic Resin.
What is it used for?  This type of wrapping is usually employed to hold loads and products together on a pallet for transportation or storage purposes. Stretch wrap can come in a variety of specialty films. Some examples are: UV stretch wrap, vented pallet wrap, anti-static stretch f…

What Is The Best Stretch Film

Image
Every application and company is different. Sure, there are commonalities, but there's a lot of detail that film experts and local reps consider when suggesting the optimal stretch film for an application. The "best stretch film" is relative - based on your goals, circumstances and expectations. Film gauge, pre-stretch capability, puncture resistance, tear propagation and other performance characteristics are examples of the specs which the film experts will consider with you as they help to select a film.
There's a basic difference in how films are manufactured though that's interesting to understand as someone who relies on the "system" of stretch wrapping equipment and film to safely deliver your loads to their destination.
Films are either blown or cast.
Let's look at the difference in the manufacturing process. Please note - this is intended to be informative and not to specify one method or material or another.
