Packaging & Availability

+
Packaging Information

Aerafin™ 180M polymer can be packaged in fiber drums. These are 22.5-inch inside diameter drums, 4 drums per pallet. Drummed material is sold by net weight per pallet, approximately 1,200 lbs per pallet.

Storage & Handling

+
Storage

Molten material should be handled entirely in closed systems blanketed with an inert gas, such as nitrogen. Molten material can be stored satisfactorily under nitrogen in a steel tank at 350°F to 390°F. Inside storage is recommended for Aerafin™ APOs packaged in drums.
