Packaging and Palletization (Standard Reference)

PACKAGING PALLET HEIGHT (CM) PALLET LENGTH (CM) PALLET WIDTH (CM) PALLET WEIGHT (NET, KG) PACKAGES PER PALLET NUMBER OF LAYERS
No Tube ~125 115 115 ~1200 64 4
No Tube ~97 115 115 ~900 48 3

Rovings are available in a single-end internal-pull package. Each pallet weighs about 1 ton and can be packaged in bulk or Creel-Pak™ packaging format. Pallets are stretch wrapped for load stability and for protection during transport. Full doffs are available in weights between 15 kg (33 lb.) and 20 kg (44 lb.), and can be packaged in bulk or Creel-Pak™ format. All individual packages are wrapped with Tack-Pak™ packaging to aid package run-out and transfer. Packaging may vary by region. More information is available in the Customer Acceptance Standards.

Labeling

Each individual package is labeled with information including: product name, Tex/yield, producing plant, and production date.

Storage

Unless otherwise specified, it is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area. The glass fiber products must remain in their original packaging material until the point of usage. The product should be stored in the workshop in its original packaging for 48 hours prior to its utilization, to allow it to reach the workshop temperature condition and prevent condensation, especially during the cold season. The packaging is not waterproof. Be sure to protect the product from the weather and other sources of water.

When stored properly, there is no known shelf life to the product, but retesting is advised after three years from the initial production date to insure optimum performance.
