Polystyrene is both economical and efficient for all packaging requirements. It protects goods without adding extra weight, and using loose fill polystyrene means various shapes/items can be shipped in the same box, reducing your costs. It’s recyclable and can, for example, be melted down and used as rigid plastic for CD cases. It doesn’t break down in landfill so doesn’t give off greenhouse gases and helps to stabilise the site.
We also supply closed-cell, non cross-linked polyethylene foam packaging. Put simply, this means it absorbs shock, making it even more resilient than polystyrene. It is reusable, which is useful if you have more than one factory and you transport products between sites regularly. It is also water resistant and we can provide a (pink) anti-static version, perfect for transporting delicate electronic equipment. All this contributes to a packaging solution offering that little bit extra.
That depends on the requirements of your product: its size, weight and fragility. We can advise you on the best packaging solution to meet your needs. Please call us to discuss.
Certainly. Polystyrene is an exceptional insulator. We can supply fire retardant expanded polystyrene for use in insulating sheds, garages, lofts and even cold rooms and saunas.
Not necessarily. Polyethylene is more expensive than polystyrene but may not be the best packaging for a delicate figurine, for example, as it would probably be too solid. The best solution might be a lower density polystyrene that would be less expensive but provide more cushioning. If you give us a call, we can advise you on the best solution for you.
