This versatile cushioning solution is perfect for shipping fragile, valuable and awkwardly shaped products while helping free some of your warehouse space (one block of paper can replace around 3 bags of void fill).

It is also clean and easy to recycle for customers. Automated dispensers can be set up to release fixed lengths of paper, helping reduce packaging waste and manage void fill more economically.

WrapPak Waved Paper Pads

The innovative waved paper pads have been designed to offer one solution for multiple packaging applications, including box lining, wrapping, thermal insulation and block and bracing.

This helps minimise the amount of different packing materials needed to pack products, improving sustainability and simplifying packaging processes.

The pads are renewable and 100% recyclable and offer an enhanced product protection in transit due to their great shock absorption properties.

Gummed paper tape requires water to activate the adhesive, a paper tape dispenser is required to moisten, cut and dispense the tape automatically.

Self-adhesive paper tape can be applied to boxes using a standard tape gun or an automatic taping machine.

Recyclable bubble lined envelopes

Our Mail Lite® mailers now use non PE coated paper FSC® (C110918) certified which can easily be recycled in the paper waste stream.

Material reduction

Sealed Air AirCap® bubble wrap

Sealed Air AirCap® bubble wrap contains a minimum of 50% recycled material.

The inclusion of recycled content reduces the amount of virgin material used in production and contributes to reducing the amount of plastic waste going into landfill.

All of our Sealed Air AirCap® bubble wrap is barrier sealed. It maintains consistent cushioning during storage and transit, allowing it to be used multiple times without compromising protection.

*Please note, the colour mix of recycled material used in the production of High Recycled Content AirCap can vary from one batch to another. As a result, from time to time, you may notice slight variations in shades of grey together with tinge of colour when receiving and comparing new deliveries.

12 Micron Stretch Film

12 micron high performance film helps use less material to wrap a pallet without compromising load stability, offering both improved product protection and reduced packaging waste.

This has a positive impact on the environment while helping improve efficiency and generate savings in many areas of your operation, including material usage, operator roll changes and waste disposal.

Gummed Paper Tape

Made from natural, sustainable and naturally degradable materials, gummed paper tape is 100% recyclable and does not need to be removed from boxes before recycling.

It offers enhanced parcel protection due to its strength and tamper-evident properties, which makes it a perfect environmentally-friendly alternative to standard packing tape.

Stretch Machines

Automated stretch wrapping machines help reduce the amount of material used to wrap each pallet, positively impacting the environment and generating significant savings in material costs.

They are fast and prevent film breaks, which increases productivity and ensures maximum load protection in storage and transit.

Auto Boxing Machines

Automated box-sizing machines measure the size of products and adjust the box size to offer the best fit for the content.

This helps ensure only the necessary amount of packing material is used without compromising product protection. The machine also folds the box and seals the lid on, significantly speeding up packing lines and increasing productivity.

Auto Bagging Machines

Auto bagging machines operate on similar principles to auto boxing systems. They automatically place products inside customised bags which are then cut to size to ensure optimum fit.

This ensures reduced material wastage and allows multi-sized products to be despatched efficiently with minimum labour efforts and time constraints.

Automatic Case Tapers

Automatic tape machines dispense pre-set lengths of tape, reducing the amount of packaging waste and speeding up the packing process.

Consistency of application ensures the tape does not break away from the box, making the whole parcel tougher and more secure. All this makes shipments look neat while ensuring products are well protected during storage and transportation.
