Green & Environmental Initiatives

ShockWatch is dedicated to helping deter damages — not just to your products in transit and storage, but also to the natural environment. In the most basic sense, our condition-based monitors help keep damaged goods out of landfills. But our commitment to environmental preservation goes much deeper. Preserving the environment is a priority we know we share with many of our customers. We drive energy efficiencies that help us to control costs. We take steps to minimize our carbon footprint in order to be a provider you can feel good about choosing. And we invite you to share in our effort.

California Proposition 65 Labeling Requirements – Tube Based Products

The California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA) has published a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects. Proposition 65 requires that products containing these chemicals bear a label alerting recipients of this presence.

ShockWatch tube-based impact indicators (tubes, Flex, clips and labels) contains Ethylene Glycol which is on the Prop 65 list.  The label is required on products that may ship into the State of California.  ShockWatch is adding this label to all shipments bound for the United States and Canada.

CA Label

ShockWatch tube-based impact indicators remains ROHS2 and REACH compliant.

Material declarations for the ShockWatch label, Flex, clips and tubes and/or a safety data sheet (SDS) for Ethylene Glycol are available upon request.
