Early "Beat the Freeze" warning

09/27/2015

We're still enjoying warm weather here in Central Ohio, but we know that Old Man Winter will soon be bringing his cold temperatures to town. Once the temperatures drop we will have trouble shipping our freeze sensitive products, such as N&V Expansion Liquid for our MG-Vest and Z4 Investments. But you can avoid problems by planning ahead to ensure you have enough liquid to last until Spring.

We always recommend planning for the worst-case scenario of needing 6 months of liquid on hand. It's always better to have it and not need it, rather than need it and not have it. Here is a good formula to help you calculate the proper amount of liquid to purchase:

  • Take the number of cases of Z4 Investment you use per month
  • Multiply that by 2 (bottles of N&V Expansion Liquid needed per box)
  • Multiple that result by 6 (number of months)

So if you use an average of 4 cases per month it would go something like this:

4 (cases) X 2 (bottle per case) X 6 (months) = 48 bottle of N&V Expansion Liquid

* One thing to note is that on average most labs use 2 bottles of liquid per 100 gram and 60 gram box. However, if you typically use more or if you use our 500 gram semi-bulk packaging you should calculate 3 bottles per box.

We often get asked about the shelf life for our expansion liquid. N&V Expansion Liquid can last for long period of time if it simply stored at normal room temperature and out of the light. So we tell people to store their liquid inside a box in a storage closet or room. Unopened bottles stored properly will last for several years without any issues.
