Intercept Technology, Inc. (INTERCEPT) is a licensee of the static Intercept Technology™ invented and developed by Alcatel Lucent Bell Labs. We have taken that concept to new levels to address package protection against static charges and protection against corrosion and degradation. INTERCEPT has made a long term commitment to the demands of an ever-changing marketplace. Today we are a leader in static (ESD) and corrosion control packaging, delivering a broad range of highly effective, environmentally friendly solutions. We help our customers reduce costs through increased efficiencies, reduced out of date materials, reduced rejections due to ESD and/or Corrosion damage -- all while maintaining the environment. Environmental Award-winning Intercept Technology™ products are a change for the better. Compared to other packaging materials, Intercept can reduce waste, lower a company’s carbon footprint, and increase product reliability. Simply stated, Intercept is better for the environment, better for our planet, and better for our customers.
How Intercept™ Works
Intercept Technology™ products are made from a thin ‘reactive polymer’ barrier film made from copper that is chemically bonded to a polymer (typically polyethylene). Intercept Technology™ works by intercepting and neutralising reactive gases that permeate the film. Reactive gases like nitrous oxides (NOx), ozone (O3), hydrogen sulphide (H2S), sulphur dioxide (SO2), carbonyl sulphide (COS) and hydrogen chloride (HCl), even in trace quantities, and particularly in the presence of moisture and ultraviolet light, are implicated in the degradation of most materials, including metals, plastics, rubbers, fabrics, paper, paints, ceramics, leather and magnetic media. Apart from acting as an effective barrier against reactive gases, Intercept® films also have about half the moisture vapour permeability of clear polyethylene sheet of the same thickness. Additionally, the antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties of copper, well-recognised since antiquity, act to inhibit bio-deterioration due to these microorganisms.
Consulting & Process Optimization
Intercept Technology™ offers 35+ years of experience in process improvement consulting and helping our clients to achieve methods which enhance their operations. Whether modifying an existing process, or designing a brand new product package -- TEAM Intercept offers a range of optimization solutions to maximize both protection and performance. Time tested knowledge of advanced technologies allows us to identify opportunities for cost savings, waste reductions, and streamline manufacturing -- building these into the product packaging process. Our engineering expertise, knowledge and problem solving abilities are complimented with tools, applicable software, iterative analysis and testing.
