Imation Intros Packaging

OAKDALE, Minn. -- Already a proven innovator in tape cartridge protection with its ruggedized cartridge design for LTO (Linear Tape Open) Ultrium tapes, Imation Corp. (NYSE:IMN), a worldwide leader in removable data storage, today announced it is shipping its LTO Ultrium 2, 3 and 4 cartridges in new ultra-protective thermoform packaging.
Imation's LTO Ultrium thermoform packaging is designed to offer superior tape cartridge protection during transport and handling -- dramatically reducing the potential for media contamination and enabling efficient unpacking and storage.

Made of environmentally friendly recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) material, the durable and clean Imation thermoform packaging is designed to provide extra protection for LTO Ultrium cartridges, which now hold up to
1.6 terabytes of critical data in a company's midrange and enterprise server environments.

    Imation's new LTO Ultrium Thermoform packaging features:
  • Polyethylene construction -- Recycled RPET offers strong,
    thermo-stability characteristics critical during shipment. As a
    plastic, it doesn't shed like cardboard -- reducing the potential for
    media contamination.
  • Durable, form-fitted trays -- The design holds cartridges snugly in
    place during shipment, significantly reducing the amount of G-force
    reaching the cartridges should rough handling be encountered during
    transit. In addition, the trays nest together, stacking efficiently to
    optimize valuable floor space.
