Packaging of product samples for delivery
  • The closure seal should not be at the bottom (magazine base line) or on the bundle side of the finished product.
  • Plastic bags containing liquid: all bags must be packaged lined up, facing the same direction and upright! The individual rows and layers (max. 3 layers) must be separated by cardboard. Packaged on a longitudinal side, standing up in boxes. Do not package standing on the seal.
  • Plastic bags containing granules or powder: all bags packaged flat and lined up. To differentiate between the rows, the individual layers must be separated by solid cardboard and stabilised with diagonally positioned card (cross strips) at 15 cm intervals.
Material

The bag material must generally be tailored to the contents and comply with specified load requirements. Samples must not have any hazardous content or impair the processing or dispatch of a printed magazine. The publishing house must be relieved of all liability in relation to third-party claims resulting from the provision of a product sample. The publishing house must furthermore be compensated for any damages it incurs due to non-observance of the technical requirements. In the event of any processing difficulties due to poor quality bag material, completion of the magazine print run will take priority over gluing in the bags.

Strain

Bags containing liquid must withstand the following weights:

Static pressure1,000 kg for 15 seconds or 600 kg for 8 hours
Dynamic pressure600 kg for 1 hour
Heat resistanceminimum 200°C

  • Positional deviations: horizontal/vertical: maximum +/- 8 mm, axial: maximum 5°
  • Missing tip-ons
  • Tip-ons glued in the wrong way round
Packaging of product samples for delivery
