Packing and transport

Alphalon™ can be packed into following packaging:
  • 25kg (net) of granulate into multilayer bags, on pallets 1000mm x 1200mm;
  • 1100kg (net) into big bags or octabins on pallets 1140mm x 1140mm;
  • in bulk, directly into tank trucks in nitrogen atmosphere;
  • other kind of packaging agreed with customer.
Alphalon™ in big bags, octabins and bags should be transported in covered means of transport. Transport conditions should protect packaging from damage, moisture and impurities.

Caution: Nitrogen has suffocative properties!

Alphalon™ is not hazardous acc. to ADR, RID and IMDG regulations.


Alphalon™ should be stored in closed original packaging of the producer in the storage-rooms, where preferred temperature is 10 ÷ 30°C and relative humidity maximum 65% at a distance of not less than 1m from the heating devices.
Alphalon™ transported in tank trucks and containers, directly after unloading should be stored in hermetic tanks in nitrogen or in air atmosphere, with humidity not higher than dew point minus 15°C.
The bags with granulate should be transferred from the cold storage room into the warm workshop about 24 hrs before the material is to be used, to balance the temperatures and prevent moisture condensation.
