Glass Component Packaging

At Coresix, producing the highest quality glass components in the world is only part of the equation. Assuring the integrity of the product to the customer’s door is an area of expertise unto itself. From particle free windows and wafers to large format, high volume sheet glass, Coresix has the experience and expertise to protect your investment through a variety of packaging solutions. Following is a general guideline of some available packaging options:
 
  

Contact Packaging

  • Box/Tissue Wrap
    Generally used for smaller parts, tissue wrapping is an economical option for maintaining fairly high surface qualities with minimal introduction of particulate.
     
  • Box/Paper Interleaf
    For bulk shipment of mid-size sheet glass, where surface quality and cleanliness are of minimal concern, a cardboard box with paper interleaf is cost effective solution.

  • Crate/Paper Interleaf
    Similar to Box/Paper Interleaf, a crate adds additional support for larger profile sheet glass and/or bulk shipments.

  • Nitto Tape
    A protective tape applied through static adhesion to the glass surface protects the part during general handling and shipping. This is an effective means of protecting the surface through subsequent processing while maintaining moderate cleanliness level.

  • Shrink Wrap
    A protective cellophane wrapping prevents introduction of heavy particulate during shipment. Shrink wrapping can be performed with either tissue or paper interleaf.

Non-Contact Packaging

  • Standard Containers
    From producers like Entegris and ePAK, these containers are a proven means of shipping high quality wafers and reticles while maintaining cleanliness and cosmetic integrity.

  • Custom Trays
    Primarily for smaller, custom size parts in significant volumes, vacuum formed trays can be designed from a number of materials for maximum protection and cleanliness during shipping and storage.

  • Corner Protectors
    Designed by Coresix, these High Impact Polystyrene Corner Protectors are clean room compatible and flexible in size for a non-contact alternative to shipping high quality sheet glass.

  • Coroplast Wraps
    Our own design incorporating plastic slots adhered to choroplast sheets, this is an effective alternative when non-contact packaging is required at low volume.
