New Self-adhering QuikStik™ Streamlines Palletizing and Loading
Edge protector stays in place on and in corners to allow for easier wrapping
APPLETON, Wis., June 10, 2005—Laminations®, part of Great Northern Corporation’s Specialty Group, has introduced QuikStik™, a self-adhering form of VBoard™ that temporarily sticks where placed to allow for easier stretch wrapping, banding and loading.
The new patent-pending QuikStik features an adhesive strip on one of the outside or inside legs of VBoard edge protectors. A release liner covering the adhesive peels off quickly using conveniently located tabs to allow for easy placement.
QuikStik adheres to corners long enough to allow pallets to be wrapped or banded. In applications where adhesive on the outside leg is called for, QuikStik adheres to the inside corners of boxes long enough to allow for loading.
QuikStik comes in standard leg lengths of 2" x 2" up to 4" x 4" and a variety of calipers. It can be produced in any length, is available in either a clay coat or kraft surface. It also is available in the shorter lengths offered in the VGuard® strap protector format.
The revolutionary QuikStik streamlines the palletizing, banding and product loading processes, saving time and labor. Like all VBoard products, QuikStik also nests during shipping to save space.
