Foam Peanuts, also known as Packing Peanuts, Polychip Peanuts, or Polychip Foam, is a packaging solution used to prevent impact during the transit of goods. Commonly used to fill void space during packaging with carton boxes after the goods have been placed as an added protection. The packaging peanuts are typical loose-fill packaging and made of cushioning material to prevent damage to fragile objects during shipping. They are shaped to interlock when packed tightly and free flow when not compressed. They flow quickly and evenly, filling all spaces around different shapes and sizes of articles. When packed tightly together, these Foam Peanuts interlock tightly with one another to form a barrier, providing adequate protection to products.
Biodegradable packing peanuts are available as an eco-friendlier alternative to typical polystyrene peanuts, given high awareness of products’ environmental impact. The advanced Foam Peanuts are made up of biodegradable and non-toxic materials like corn starch or wheat. These foam types are easily dissolvable in water and do not have an electrostatic charge, which means they do not stick to the clothes. Another advantage of foam peanuts is that they are dust-free, anti-static, and abrasion-resistant. Using foam peanuts reduces freight cost as it is lighter than most conventional packaging and dunnage materials. Furthermore, they can be repeatedly reused as it is highly resilient.
Foam Peanuts is a simple and easy to use packaging solution for retail, e-commerce, mailing, and logistics requirement as it is lightweight. The Foam Peanuts selection depends on the packaging goods that are more fragile and required void filling packaging for extra protection. Our packaging engineers can help with the selection of the right packaging solution for different requirements.
