Cushioning Materials
Used for the protection of fragile and sensitive goods such as glass, ceramic, porcelain and electronic equipment. In addition to protecting the contents, they are also used to adjust the package to economical sizes. Cushioning material should be simple, effective and cost efficient. Typical examples include bubble wrap, polystryrene, polyethelene etc.

Important characteristics include recovery to the original level of protection even when subjected to repeated stresses; be in-sensitive to climatic conditions such as moisture, solar radiation and variations in temperature.
 
These materials must not be hygroscopic, especially when used for products at risk of corrossion and not contain any aggressive constituens (neutral pH), nor interact with the contents so as to impair each others properties.
Instapak - Foam Packaging
Fast, easy, versatile, Instapak provides superior protection against shock and vibration during handling and shipping. A perfect solution for the cushioning, void fill and bracing of electronic equipment, sensitive machinery and valuable items.
 
Bubble Wrap
Bubble Wrap is a pliable plastic sheet commonly used for packaging fragile items. Regularly spaced, protruding air-filled hemisperes ("bubbles") provide cushioning for precious or breakable items.
 
The bubbles are available in different sizes and would depend on the object being packed, as well as the level of protection needed. Multiple layers are used when shock and vibration isolation is required whilst a single layer may be used for surface protection.
 
When shipping sensitive electronic parts and components, anti-static plastic is used to dissapate static charge and protect the sensitive electronic chips.

Pallet Wrap
Do not confuse with Shrinkwrap which is a heat shrink film, whilst Pallet Wrap is stretch film used to secure and protect loads of packaged goods in transit or storage. The elastic recovery of the Pallet Wrap keeps items tightly bound.

Pallet Wrap has several functions:
  • improved stability of products or packages.
  • more efficient handling and storage.
  • some degree of dust and moisture protection.
  • some degree of resistance to tampering and pilferage.
Pallet Wrap is the most cost effective way to secure loads during shipping.
