Product Specification

Air Shock specifications:

  • Air Shock plastic packaging is made from LDPE (low-density polyethylene) with a density range of 0.910 to 0.940 g/cm3 
  • LDPE typically demonstrates excellent resilience to acids and alcohols, with no resulting chemical reaction.
  • It can withstand temperatures of 80° Celsius/176 Fahrenheit, and is remarkably tough and flexible
  • LDPE is weldable and machinable, and often used in household and consumer product manufacturing
  • The plastic in Air Shocks is provided in a transparent finish, enabling customers to see a hint of the bottle, label and liquid colors inside
  • The LDPE recycling symbol applicable to Air Shock inflatable packaging is indicating it can be recycled

In in-house testing, Air Shock’s packaging meets or exceeds all outlined tests and standards that are applicable within these ISO standards:

 ISO: ISO 2206:1987 (Complete, filled transport packages parts tested)
JIS: JIS z 0201:1989 
TC: ISO/TC 122/SC 3 
ICS: 55.180.40

Air Shock packaging conforms to the following standards for shipped package vertical drop tests:

 ISO: ISO 2248: 1985 (vertical impact drop test with free fall to strike rigid plane surface) 
TC: ISO/TC 122/SC3 
ICS: 55.180.40

Cardboard box specifications:

  • Single wall C flute corrugated box construction
  • Adhesive is general hot meld, synthetic rubber based
  • All box materials are recyclable and the boxes are constructed of partially recycled material
  • Our cardboard boxes are sized specifically to fit inflated Air Shock packaging
  • They are manufactured to the new 32 ECT (Edge Crush Test) standard, measuring the performance of stacked boxes through the compressive strength of the board’s peak load
  • 32 ECT supports a maximum box weight of 30 lbs (twelve filled glass bottles weigh approximately 24 lbs)
  • Environmental Quality departments usually align a 32 ECT standard on single wall corrugated board to 200# on the older Bursting Test scale, and a maximum suggested loading limit per carton of 65 lbs, significantly higher than the twelve bottle gross weight
  • Using ECT rated corrugation provides equivalent strength to the previous scale, but with fewer raw materials, lower energy requirements, and reduced pollution. The lighter material weight also minimizes shipping costs
