Packaging Types

Zip-Chem® Products adapts package designs from other industries and invents new products to meet the needs of the aircraft maintenance markets. Zip-Chem® Products currently partners with AnkPak, a Morgan Hill, CA packaging company, so that packaging solutions can be provided for the company's chemical cleaning products. New materials in aircraft manufacturing, new and changing aviation maintenance products and procedures, and cost optimization pressure continue to create demand for new packaging solutions. Zip-Chem® Products welcomes these challenges and encourages customers and potential clients to contact the company at 1-800-648-2661 to learn about Zip-Chem® 's products and solutions.

The company offers pre-mixed frozen materials and sealed two-component packaging/mixing systems. These include:

  • Clip-paks(r)
  • Special Syringe Packages
  • Injection
  • Barrier Kits
  • Combination Mixing and Application Devices, such as Two Component Syringes and Foil-Paks

Zip-Chem® packaging systems address environmental and occupational health concerns. Some of these packaging systems include non-ozone depleting aerosol technology and simple hand pump sprays. These systems place a controlled amount of product at precisely the point of need. This strategy reduces waste and minimizes build-up. Cartridge systems and specialized mixing and spray applicators also facilitate cost savings through bulk packaging and carefully controlled product applications. Zip-Chem® 's packaging systems are successful because they are flexible for customers. Short runs in material packaging are common and encouraged. The company meets a site's needs without having to ship large quantities of product. Additionally, Zip-Chem® 's substantial international distribution ensures that the cost efficiencies attained with larger batch runs remain in place regardless of an individual order.
