ICC Has Gained Weight – In a Good Way!
In a society where oftentimes less is more, diet trends have come in many forms. Whether it’s the ketogenic diet, South Beach, or Atkins, many of us are looking to drop a few pounds and go lighter. But in the dangerous goods packaging world, the higher the weight allowance, the better. A higher weight allowance on the UN certification marking means that you can ship more of your dangerous goods in the outer packaging.
An example of this is the UN marking from our BX-8SP variation box below. As you can see it carries a 5.4 KG weight rating, meaning that is the maximum gross weight limit allowed when shipping dangerous goods in this box.
