COMPANY GOES GREEN FOR LAUNCH OF LEAD FREE BRASS FITTINGS
OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS: Mid-America Fittings, Inc. announced today that it has partnered with Automated Packaging Systems, Inc. in order to utilize their newly developed EarthAware biodegradable packaging film. The company will use this new packaging to bag its line of lead free brass fittings scheduled for introduction during the 3rd quarter of 2009.
This product introduction is timed to comply with the new lead free laws being enacted in both California and Vermont on January 1, 2010.
The biodegradable film will be comprised of a combination of a printed front on an white opaque background indicating the specific lead free part, part number, and quantity along with a transparent eco-friendly green tinted back for easy part identification, eco-awareness, and viewing. The film is designed to trigger biodegradation when it comes in contact with other biodegrading material environments like landfills. Biodegradation can occur in both oxygen rich and oxygen free conditions. Under normal storage conditions (on the shelf) the product is designed to remain in tact for up to five years. The material is completely recyclable and ecologically friendly.
Technical specifications are available upon request.
