MFG Tray’s New ULTRA LITE Totes and Containers Combine Lighter Weight With Legendary Strength
New product line is 40% lighter while retaining trusted strength and durability of MFG’s fiber glass reinforced composite.
Can an industrial container be made lighter and still retain its strength? That’s the challenge engineers at Molded Fiber Glass Tray have answered with the development of MFG Tray’s new ULTRA LITE totes and containers.
The new line of ULTRA LITE products are 40 percent lighter than standard fiberglass products while retaining the trusted strength and durability of MFG’s fiber glass reinforced composite, said Burt Hovis, MFG Tray material handling product line manager.
“ULTRA LITE is a direct result of customer requests to help improve shop ergonomics and lower shipping weight,” noted Hovis. “ULTRA LITE totes and containers answer industry-wide needs to reduce weight per container and to counter escalating shipping costs and weight.”
Hovis added that MFG Tray’s engineering team knew the finished product also had to be tough and long-lasting, similar to the company’s well-known MFG Tray brand.
“Even at 40% lighter, our new ULTRA LITE fiber glass products will be stronger than standard thermoplastic, can withstand temperatures from –60 to 250 F and are impervious to cutting oils, detergents, mild acids and alkaline solutions,” said Hovis
