Palletizing / Unitizing
Gluefast's SKID-LOCK® Palletizing and Unitizing System
Gluefast’s SKID-LOCK® palletizing and unitizing system is an efficient and environmentally friendly way to palletize and unitize products for distribution. Designed to increase the stability of unitized pallet loads, the SKID-LOCK® adhesive system results in the reduction or elimination of stretch wrap, strapping, and corner boards. With a possible savings of 50 percent or more due to reduced labor and source reduction of packaging materials, our SKID-LOCK® adhesive and application equipment is the solution you have been seeking.
So what makes this palletizing and unitizing system so efficient?
The SKID-LOCK® Palletizing and Unitizing System Consists of Three Easy Steps:
- SKID-LOCK®, a water-based Food Packaging Adhesive, is applied on top of each item before being palletized using one of three types of manual or automatic adhesive applicators.
- The packages are then placed on the pallet or slip-sheet where a unique adhesive bond forms that is high in shear strength (to hold during the side-to-side motion encountered during transportation) and low in tensile strength (up and down movement). If needed, stretch wrap is then applied to the top two tiers of packages.
- When the customer receives the pallet, they simply pick the package up to break the bond cleanly with no damage to the packaging.
So what makes this palletizing and unitizing system so environmentally friendly?
SKID-LOCK® is a water-based, non-toxic adhesive that leaves little or no residue, does not affect the recyclability of your containers, and produces no waste. All ingredients are FDA approved for indirect food contact, and suitable to use with packaged food products. For more information, see our palletizing and unitizing SKID-LOCK® adhesives.
So whether you need to palletize or unitize corrugated boxes, brown cartons, mottled white cartons, recycled cartons, paper bags, plastic bags, or shrink-wrapped items, the SKID-LOCK® Unitizing System is sure to deliver damage-free products with reduced packaging materials, saving you a substantial amount of money in the process. Unitize your load and facilitate the loading, unloading, and inventory of shipments while improving cargo security against theft, pilferage, and damage.
