ShockWatch impact indicators detect and highlight mishandling during transportation and manipulation of fragile, sensitive or regulated products.
They prevent damage to all types of goods during transportation and handling, alerting that the product must be handled with care. Their use can range from mechanical or electronic components, to works of art, furniture, etc.
These devices contain a red liquid in suspension. If the device is subjected to an impact above a certain G force, the liquid is irreversibly stained red.
To ensure optimal results from the use of the ShockWatch label, the sensitivity of the indicator needs to be adapted based on the size and weight of the shipment, the fragility of the product and the packaging.
