Storopack introduces Foamplus lightweight packaging

Offers Foamplus Back packer and Hand Packer

Foamplus Bag Packer and Hand Packer foam dispensing systems

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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
