Introducing VaporShield®

VS 1 small

Air Cycle Corporation is very pleased to announce VaporShield®, the latest advancement in mail-back lamp recycling box design. Keeping with our commitment to innovation in the pursuit of continual improvement of our products, VaporShield® offers maximum mail-back box ease-of-use and uncompromising safety.

The box includes the full value-adding suite of features offered by the EasyPak™ program including Sustainable Program automatic reordering, online Certificates of Recycling and Recycling Reports, and Container Tracking.

In VaporShield®, a fresh approach to mail-back box design yields a simpler box setup and a safe, faster loading process. The new container eliminates the plastic liner and folding flaps of the conventional mail-back box in favor of two self-adhesive end caps and a treated cardboard interior that safely contains mercury vapor in the event of breakage during storage or shipment.
