Q:   When will my order ship?

A:   Stock products typically ship within one day depending on availability and the time the order is submitted.

If the product is not available to ship within 2 business days, you will be notified.

Q:   Can I get samples before placing an order?

A:   Samples are not available through the online store. Please visit our Request for Quote form or contact a sales representative at 1-800-949-1141 to order samples before placing your order. VisiPak strongly recommends customer evaluation of sample products prior to order placement.            


Q:   What about fit?  

A:   Insuring the VisiPak product works for any given application is ultimately the responsibility of the purchaser. The selection of diameter, thickness and length of the packaging are key considerations. Our sales staff will be happy to assist you with your requirements.


Q:   Are your mailing tubes postal system approved?

A:   Yes, all of our mailing tubes meet USPS guidelines.


Q:   What material is used in your products?

A:   VisiPak uses PETG plastic in the production of its tubing.  Most of our caps are made of vinyl and our plugs are of LDPE. The most commonly used materials for our thermoforming products and boxes are PVC and PET, and some boxes use polypropylene.

Please visit our Material Information page for additional information.

Not all materials are compatible with PETG plastic. The responsibility lies with the purchaser to determine their product’s compatibility with PETG. Our vinyl products do not meet the Food and Drug Administration requirement of 21CFR2177 for contact with food. Most materials used in the manufacturing of VisiPak products can be recycled. It is necessary to check with your local recycling center for a listing of accepted materials.


Q:   Can you make other sizes than those listed?

A:   Yes, we have numerous tool sets to make hundreds of different sizes, however, these are not offered in the store. To inquire about these items, please contact a sales rep at 1-800-949-1141 or by written request using our Request for Quote form.

Custom tooling is also available for a nominal fee. For additional information, please contact us as noted above.


Q:   Can I get different colored caps or plugs?

A:   Although we do not offer all colors through the online store, other colors can be purchased by contacting a sales rep at 1-800-949-1141 or by written request using our Request for Quote form.


Q:   What is Prop 65 labeling and how does it affect me?

A:   Sinclair & Rush products are compliant with California Proposition 65 due to our decision to provide the appropriate warning label on our applicable products.  If you utilize certain Sinclair & Rush products and do not choose to label your product according to California Proposition 65 requirements, you may find your products are not compliant with California Prop 65.  For further information please review the following link or contact your salesperson for further assistance.
