Cold Cracking in Vinyl Packaging Products

Custom Vinyl Binders

A week or so ago we had to delay shipping out some packaging of vinyl products to our clients to be safe because of the possibility of cold cracking. Cold cracking is when vinyl becomes firm and brittle when exposed to cold. When this happens the material may actually crack or split if jolted a bit. This consequence is called ‘cold cracking’. The majority of the year, this is not a possibility. However, during late autumn and winter, as the temperature falls, the possibility of cold crack rises. The problem occurs when vinyl products or ring binders, made from general purpose vinyl, are left in cold temperatures for a lengthy amount of time. The vinyl products and binders chill, and if they are dropped or thumped when still frozen, they may break. When the vinyl products and binders are permitted to warm up before moving them, usually for a few hours in a warm setting, they are good to go. We do believe in being safe rather than sorry!

The use of durable chipboard and a custom wrap of our clients’ choosing offers an affordable and effective way to stand out among competitors whether the package is for marketing promotions or even a retail product. The three items shown above have all been produced by us with custom turned edge.

As a turnkey manufacturing house, we pride ourselves in the ability to source correct materials, print any graphic design or artwork, and of course create a final product that is fulfilled and ready to ship. While turned edge is not a household term, we like to refer to it as hardcover because it is the same way a hardcover text book is made.
