Lachenmeier, part of SIG and a leading manufacturer of stretch hood equipment and film, receives United States Patent 8,936,152 for its Xeros condensation control film. Xeros is ideal for protecting loads from outdoor elements while preventing condensation from forming inside the bag. The patent protects the multi-layer film technology used to manufacture Xeros.
The combination of proprietary features effectively manages sunlight and creates an impermeable barrier to liquids. Aside from eliminating condensation and unwanted elements from entering the bag, the technology also maintains barcode readability and prevents tears or punctures as bags are stretched over the load.
As a result, the patented Xeros film offers what they call "10-sided" (5 outside surfaces + 5 inside surfaces) waterproof protection and enables manufacturers to store loads outdoors or ship on flatbed trucks without fear of product damage. Coupled with the Lachenmeier stretch hood machines, Lachenmeier helps manufacturers optimally protect pallet loads while simultaneously reducing film usage 10-25%.
