Material Handling Product News: Corrosion Materials new paperboard packaging cuts labor costs and eliminates product damage for long and narrow products.

Corrosion Materials, with headquarters in Baker, La., and additional warehouse facilities in Houston and Chicago, distributes corrosion-resistant alloys that are fabricated into products for industries such as petrochemical, chemical process, oil field, pharmaceutical and desalinization operations. After switching to a recyclable paperboard packaging solution, the company saved money when shipping long and narrow products.

“When products are exposed to corrosive agents, they will typically attack those areas where there is scratching or a ding,” says Rob Hanks, operations manager for Corrosion Materials. “We tried some samples of the new paperboard packaging and fine-tuned the specifications a bit, and we have been using it for going on two years now.”
