Technical Brief with Dr. Barry Ruck June 20, 2012


Q: Can you discuss the usage of Traction Pak and what surfaces can it be used on?

A: You can apply Traction Pak on any floor surface that you can put water on it. Stay away or limit on wood floor surfaces. This product is ideal for high traffic public areas such where people would be coming in from outside where there's rain, snow, sleet, etc. Examples: supermarket, box typed stores, area where there is NO mat for wet shoes (applied w/in 10-15 feet of entrance). Applied with mop once a week after floor is scrubbed. It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to dry. **Traction Pak does not protect any damage done to marble floor when salt is on it.

Q: Can our laundry detergent be made fragrance and dye- free?

A: YES. Changing colors and fragrances is easy to change on demand.

Q: Can we add bleach to our Laundry Pak-It? Can we add softener into our laundry Pak-It?

A: We cannot add bleach to our Pak-It, but a Pak-It can be made with extra optical whitening in it so it looks brighter.  Marketing and sales will have to determine whether a softener is added to the product line.

Q: How is the new and reformulated Heavy Duty Multipurpose Cleaner going to perform compared to our old Heavy Duty Pak-It?

A: It is going to perform very similar to a standard bulk product aka HD Purple Degreaser. More alkalinity (i.e. a higher pH) allows the detergents to react with food greases and turn it into soap. It will be more equivalent to a general purpose cleaner degreaser cleaning general greasing, range hoods, meat rooms, degrease engines, and wax stripper. You can use without gloves- it will not harm your hands. The product has already been reformulated in is currently in performance testing.

Big 3 Packaging was named to reinforce the three guiding principles of our business model.

People. Planet. Profit.

In an age of waste and excess, we believe that it is incumbent on us to be observant of the three pillars of all modern business.

Known as the triple bottom line (TBL), we strive to meet the needs of society with careful attention to our effect on the environment while achieving profitable growth. These are not isolated concepts in which one grows if another is de-emphasized. On the contrary — they are tightly integrated principles. In fact, several analyses have proven that companies with proper respect for our resources enhance profitability by ensuring a happy and healthy workforce and client base. At Big 3 Packaging, we know that sustainability is not just a fad; it is a true business imperative for companies of all sizes, and a benchmark of successful industries throughout the United States of America.

Many of our products are formulated to be environmentally-friendly. And we're constantly reinvesting to develop new innovative solutions that meet our TBL goals. Our PAK-IT® product line is safe for people, respectful of our natural resources and saves money and time, too. We think you'll love our products--all made in America, of course!
