Foam-in-place packaging system protects and cushions delicate or fragile items during shipping or transportation. It involves using a specialised machine that combines two liquid components—polyol and isocyanate—to create a foam mixture.
Protect and Cushion Fragile Items
The foam mixture is dispensed into a plastic bag or directly onto the product, where it expands and solidifies to form a custom-fitted protective foam cushion around the item.
The foam-in-place packaging provides excellent shock absorption and vibration-dampening properties, which helps to safeguard the packaged item from potential damage during handling or transit. The foam conforms to the product’s shape, providing a snug, secure fit that prevents movement and minimises the risk of impact-related breakage.
Additionally, the foam used in this void-fill packaging system is typically lightweight, which helps reduce overall shipping costs. It is also versatile and can be used for packaging items of various shapes and sizes. The foam material itself is recyclable, adding to its environmental appeal.
Individual Expanding Foam Bags
Foam-in-place packaging systems can be used in electronics, medical equipment, automotive, and fragile retail goods. The process is typically automated, with machines controlling the foam components’ dispensing and expansion. Individual expanding foam bags that work manually is also available without a machine.
