Optimizing Chemical Additives: Unleashing Efficiency and Innovation Through Packaging and Physical Form Enhancement

Chemical additives are used in various applications such as plastic elastomers, coatings, lubricants, tapes, labels, adhesives, inks, candles, and more. Additives make products tougher, last longer, safer, colorful, and reduce production costs.

In today’s global market, corporations are constantly seeking innovative ways to optimize production costs while improving the manufacturing processes of chemical additives. Two highly effective strategies to accomplish both goals are to reevaluate your current packaging and the physical forms of your additives.

To start this optimization journey, it’s essential to question whether the current packaging options align with the specific production needs. Are you ordering and shipping the right size packaging options for production needs?

Having the Right Size Packaging

Conventionally, chemical additives have been shipped in 40-pound bags, which is a logical choice when utilizing the entire 40-pound quantity in a single production run.

But what if the correct dose for your process is 22 pounds or even a smaller dose?Carrying 40 pound bags of chemical additives

Breaking down any large bag of additives on the production floor to add to processes often leads to loss of additives, increased dust, feeding, and dosing errors.

However, by engaging your supplier to repackage your additive chemicals in optimal dosages and packaging materials, you can effectively reduce costs and simplify tasks for your production team.

The advantages of having the right size package include:

  • Enhancing feeding, dispersion, and overall handling throughout the production processes.
  • Mitigating the occurrence of off-spec production, thereby curtailing expenses linked to cleaning and equipment downtime.
  • Lowering or altogether eliminating the risk of additive loss.
  • Minimizing dust accumulation, thus improving plant hygiene and overall housekeeping.
  • Reducing logistics, warehousing, and testing costs.

Packaging Options

When it comes to fulfilling your chemical additives requirements, a variety of packaging options are available. These encompass an extensive range, including full shipping containers, super sacks, gaylords, boxes, bags, drums, and pails in various sizes. Additionally, innovative inclusion bags designed to seamlessly dissolve right into your batch offer an effective solution.

Collaboration with an excellent chemical additive supplier can help you review your current packaging and dosing needs. Together you can explore alternative options that not only drive cost reduction but also streamline handling throughout the production process.

The Impact of the Physical Form of Additives

Did you also know that the physical form of your additives can affect your manufacturing process?

Employing fine powder yields superior additive dispersion, while opting for dust-free granules enhances workplace safety.  Alternatively, you might consider combining all your additives into a convenient pastille form. A good additive supplier can help you customize these product forms and explore other possibilities.

For substantial-volume customers, you may be able to obtain some of these special services from your current supplier. Nevertheless, alternative options remain open to all buyers – both large and small – in the additive realm.
