Monoflo Packaging Made For Efficient Transport Of Goods

Plastic containers are used to store and transport every type of product imaginable. No matter the product, there’s a high chance that low surface energy polyolefin plastic was used at some point during the manufacturing process.

Plastic is a perfect material to use for storage and transport containers because they’re light, cost effective, durable, and sturdy. They’re waterproof, reusable, and recyclable. They’ll keep the cargo they carry safe and protected from rain. They can easily withstand years of wear and tear, exposure to the elements, rough handling, or exposure to harsh chemicals and cleaning agents.

In every sense, Low surface energy polyolefin plastic makes a lot of sense to utilize in the packaging and container transport industry, the only problem?

The very properties that make them so desirable to use in the first place-tough, resistant, waterproof, sturdy, sanitizable, means that labels and stickers do not want to stick to them.

Not only does the shipping and packaging industry utilize labels with brand names and logos, they also frequently require identification and tracking labels.

The solution? Read below to find out how Monoflo International, a leading manufacturer of reusable plastic containers and pallet systems for manufacturing and distribution needs, is leveraging Polyfuze Fusion labeling Technology to meet their customer’s goals.

Monoflo Packaging Made For Efficient Transport Of Goods​

In operation for over 70 years, Monoflo International started in 1949 as a small material handling company. Today, they are an industry leader with 1.7+ million products in 21 industrial and commercial categories.

The company leverages cutting edge, state-of-the-art technology with decades of experience to manufacture cost-effective, reusable packaging solutions that enable their customers to efficiently transport their product where it needs to go.

Monoflo’s durable plastic moving bins, hinge totes, and dollies are primarily used in the grocery, convenience, pharmaceutical, and retail distribution industries, who transport a variety of products.

Currently, Monoflo uses Polyfuze Fusion Labeling Technology on their plastic hinge totes and dollies.

Monoflo asked their customers what they wanted and then offered Polyfuze Fusion Labeling Technology with those needs in mind.

Speaking With Liz Whitaker, she said Monoflo uses Polyfuze Fusion Technology because, “our plastic hinge totes are designed to be durable and withstand the tough demands of the moving and supply chain industry. We needed a label that would last as long as our totes do, without scratching or scuffing off. Because Polyfuze labels become part of the tote and are resistant to washing and weather, we can be confident that the label will remain intact and legible for the life of our products. Our customers have been very pleased with the quality and durability of Polyfuze Fusion Labels.”

Why do Polyfuze Fusion Labels work where other labeling methods fail? It’s because low surface energy plastics possess a similar level of surface energy to Teflon, trying to stick a sticker, hot stamp, or In Mold Labels to plastics has the same exact result as trying to stick a sticker or label to a Teflon pan: it won’t work.

This is where Polyfuze Fusion Labeling deviates completely from all other labeling technologies out there. They don’t require or use any inks, substrates, protective layers, or adhesives.

They’re just 100% polyolefin plastic, that fuse 100% into the plastic part and the two become one solid piece, with no change or decrease in structural integrity or durability. Simply put, this is a technology that addresses the root of the problem, (low surface energy of plastic), rather than trying to adhere to a surface (like a sticker or hot stamp), that will continually reject it.

The result is a label-whether it’s an identification, tracking, or brand label that becomes exactly as durable, sturdy, resistant, waterproof, and recyclable as the plastic container, pallet, or tote itself.

We are proud to offer Polyfuze Fusion Labeling Technology as a solution for Monoflo International plastics labeling needs, a solution that seeks to add value to their goals as a company that continues to push the standards of value to their customers through their culture of quality, innovation, and sustainability.
