Bristol, CT – HexcelPack, a developer of eco-friendly, paper-based protective cushioning solutions to replace bubble wrap and other plastic or foam-based materials, will demonstrate its cost-effective, sustainable wrapping system for a wide array of product shipping needs at Pack Expo 2021, Booth SU-8425, September 27-29 in Las Vegas. Used by the United States’ 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.
At the show, HexcelPack will allow visitors to “wrap for themselves” by utilizing the company’s Mini Packing Station™, a standalone and completely recyclable tabletop dispensing unit. The easy-to-use, human-powered dispenser requires no electricity, zero maintenance, and a mere fraction of the tabletop space required for competing solutions.
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.
In addition to its signature HexcelWrap™, HexcelPack also will showcase other products from its sustainable packing portfolio, including Hexcel’ope™, an eco-friendly alternative to bubble-lined shipping envelopes; HexaFil, a void fill solution ensuring packed items nestle together in a stable position, making them less likely to shift during transport; and Wrap Pad, designed to replace conventional tissue paper and tape used at retail locations to protect fragile items.
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% 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. Unlike single-use plastic bubble wrap, the paper used to produce HexcelWrap™ is fully curbside recyclable and biodegradable.
• 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.
