HexcelPack Develops Protective Paper-Based Wrapping System for Cost-Effective & Sustainable Product Shipping
HexcelPack, a developer of eco-friendly, paper-based protective cushioning solutions to replace bubble wrap and other plastic or foam-based materials, has developed a cost-effective and sustainable wrapping system for a wide array of product shipping needs.
Now used by the U.S.’s top three retailers, the company’s HexcelWrap™ cushioning paper delivers unsurpassed product protection and packing simplicity for e-commerce, retail catalogue, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products, as well as third-party logistics (3PL) and contract packaging applications.
Utilizing groundbreaking slit paper technology, HexcelPack converts extensible paper into a three-dimensional, internationally patented cushioning product by making precise cuts at specific angles. This method makes the paper “flex,” expanding its volume while maximizing the strength and stiffness of its fibers. The result is a superior cushioning product proven to outperform environmentally-harmful product protection alternatives – including plastic-based bubble wraps and pillows.
HexcelPack protective cushioning is easily dispensed through the company’s compact options, including a standalone and completely recyclable tabletop dispensing station. The most popular of these, the Mini Packing Station™, is an easy-to-use, human-powered dispenser requiring no electricity, zero maintenance, and a mere fraction of the tabletop space required for competing solutions.
Available in both white and Kraft paper, benefits of HexcelWrap and the Mini Packing Station include:
- Unsurpassed product protection: engineered with Ultra Stretch™ technology, HexcelWrap delivers superior cushioning and product protection. Users simply stretch, wrap and tear the lightweight, interlocking material to custom lengths without the need for tape or scissors. HexcelWrap is ideal for shipping fragile items and reduces product damage by eliminating, among other adverse events, glass-on-glass contact during the supply chain journey;
- Sustainability: completely paper-based, HexcelWrap cushioning paper is made of 100 percent Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Canadian Paper for exemplary sustainability and little to no impact on the environment – all while delivering protection proven to outperform plastic bubble wraps and pillows; and
- Return on investment: especially considering the fully manual, electricity- and maintenance-free nature of the Mini Packing Station dispenser, using HexcelWrap is as impactful on the bottom line as it is on the environment. Protective and cost-effective, the system allows retailers to expediently recoup their investment.
