Sentina Inc. Awarded Patent for Tamper-Evident Cargo Covering
NEW YORK, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Sentina Inc., a New York-based producer of protective cargo coverings, has been awarded a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its reusable, vacuum-sealable, and tamper-evident covering.
The protective covering is the flagship product for Sentina Inc., a company focused on creating sustainable packagings that prevent unauthorized opening – and in the process protect shipments from water damage, theft, and inclusion of unwanted substances.
Designed to meet government standards regarding safe, secure cargo, Sentina’s patented one-piece coverings fully encapsulate shipments and are vacuum-sealed, providing an airtight, watertight, and secure environment that protects against both intentional and unintentional tampering – from the moment it is applied until the moment it is removed. Any tampering of the cover or its contents is immediately evident – affording unparalleled peace of mind to manufacturers and shippers using Sentina’s coverings.
There is currently nothing else on the market that offers these benefits at this cost.
“Corporations worldwide are continually looking for ways to insure the integrity of their goods in transit, while also attempting to reduce the overall costs, and harmful waste, associated with one-time use packagings. Sentina coverings meet these needs,” said Jeff Garfinkle, President of Sentina Inc.
Constructed using a durable nylon fabric with a thick polyurethane coating, these easy-to-apply units employ a special zipper and vacuum port to create a level of security and shipment-integrity in today’s environment not achieved with traditional cargo wrappings.
Additionally, durable Sentina coverings can be used multiple times – offering a cost-effective, environmentally friendly option to disposable, non-recyclable products currently in use in the industry.
