Handle the casing with care
Always store, transport and handle Nova (ViskoTeepak plastic brand name) in a sealed plastic bag. Keep away from dust, moisture and direct sunlight. Store in a dry and cool place at room temperature.
Never store, transport or handle Nova at high temperatures. After storage at temperatures below 4°C (39°F), maintain the casing at normal room temperature for one day before use.
Soaking to change the properties
Nova can be stuffed dry or soaked depending on the customer's procedures. For compliance with the latest regulations on hygiene, it's strongly recommended to exclude soaking from the process in order to avoid any contamination. However, if it's still necessary, cold water should be used at a recommended maximum temperature of +20°C (68°F) for no longer than 20 minutes. Shorter soaking times won't allow the casing to absorb enough water for stuffing to the maximum diameter. Longer soaking times won't improve the performance, but they don't negatively affect the casing, either. The casing can be stuffed to a maximum diameter of 2% larger than the recommended stuffing diameter (RSD). Overstuffing can result in casing breakage during stuffing or thermal processing.
