Storopack, a specialist in protective packaging, has come up with Foamplus, a protective foam packaging solution that adapts to the contours of the product and protects goods against possible transit damage due to impact shock and vibration.
Whether they’re heavy, fragile, or have awkward shapes, Foamplus offers the protection required for any product, the company said in a release. Made from expanded polyurethane, the high-quality packaging foam is resistant, robust, and reduces transport costs as it is lightweight.
With the Foamplus Bag Packer and Hand Packer foam dispensing systems, protective foam packaging can be produced directly at the packing station and placed into the carton. As the foam expands, it molds to the contours of the product and encapsulates it in a versatile packaging medium.
Foamplus is available in a range of strengths to suit a product’s weight and fragility.
The Foamplus polyurethane foam packaging is an ‘on demand’ packaging solution that, when the two components mix together, will expand up to 250 times their liquid volume, negating the necessity for large storage areas required for pre-fabricated packaging.
Sustainability and environmental protection
REUSE: Foamplus foam packaging can be reused for multiple shipments of the same products.
REDUCE: Foamplus foam packaging and the corresponding production process are designed to reduce the use of natural resources. During transport, the lightweight packaging helps reduce fuel consumption.
RECYCLE: Post-consumer or production waste from Foamplus foam packaging can replace primary raw materials. Within the general waste flow, Foamplus is an outstanding fuel for modern waste-combustion plants producing energy from waste.
