“We are excited to launch this new quart container in the Americas,” said Dean Doza, Managing Director & Vice President. “It will accommodate the stringent demands required for colorant packaging used at point of sale. The detailed process that we’ve taken to move to this new plastic quart from the current liter and sealed metal quart will ensure longer-term stability for our valued customers.”
Chromaflo has conducted robust testing to ensure the reliability of this new package, including individual container and case tests. The individual container tests include compression, drop, retention/yield, atmospheric pressure and shaker testing. Case tests include ISTA 3A small parcel test (over pack ship test), ISTA 2A Drop Test – Heavy product, 32″, ISTA 3E (vibration, compression, shock) and compression testing.
Customers should be advised that for an unspecified period following the launch of the new quart, they may receive shipments containing mixed package types. Chromaflo will make every effort during the transition to minimize this. Updated product pricing will follow shortly, and your Territory Sales Manager will be in contact with you regarding this. We appreciate your continued patience and cooperation in this improvement process.
