Bulk Bag Shelf Life Extension

Feb 08, 2021 / Products

HarbisonWalker International reinvented the way to produce and deliver quality monolithic products when we became the first U.S. refractory manufacturer to deliver  monolothics in form, fill, and seal technology (FFS). This advanced packaging technology was new to the North American refractory market, and offers improved product
consistency, shelf life, and storage, as well as easier and safer handling.

FFS has proven to slow the material aging on product in 55 lb. bags, while delivering more predictable performance than ever before. Since the successful extension of shelf life on these products, HWI has been investigating bulk bag packaging shelf life.

Click here for the Dry Monolithic Refractory Shelf Life brochure, listing all products’ shelf life in paper bags, bulk bags, and the new shelf life in FFS bags.

Technical Datasheets have been updated to differentiate packaging types and reflect extensions in Bulk Bag shelf life. HarbisonWalker International continues to evaluate options to provide the benefits of extended shelf life across all our products.

For any questions on this, or any other product development, reach out to your local sales representative, or our product management group.
