IKO has announced packaging changes to its GoldShield Ice & Water Protector to provide added user friendliness to roofers and product dealers.

The new GoldShield Ice & Water Protector will be available in the form of a fully enclosed, shrink wrapped film on individual rolls replacing the previous boxed roll format that was shrink wrapped by the pallet. The new film packaging is water resistant and treated for enhanced UV resistance improving the ability to store it outdoors. The packaging is also smaller in size allowing for an increased number of rolls per pallet and reducing the inventory space required for storage purposes.

Because there is no change to the product itself suppliers will be able to mix the new packaging and their existing supply. The products are totally compatible.
