‘Foam Follows Function for Efficient Ecommerce Packaging’

It is no secret that our world has become far more digital in the past 20 months. The push for digital has impacted the way we interact; whether meeting virtually or purchasing a product online. Enhancing digital marketing efforts, or simply investing more in technology, has become an immediate need.

To that point, there is an interesting industry article published recently on PlasticsToday.com titled ‘Foam Follows Function for Efficient Ecommerce Packaging’. The article reiterates that COVID-19 has placed an emphasis on ecommerce. As ecommerce increases, it places an even greater focus on foam’s ability to deliver a positive customer experience while protecting products, reputations, bottom lines, and the environment. Packaging foam can take on many forms depending on a product’s value, weight, fragility, geometry, production volume and other variables. Choosing the right one is crucial to delivering the required protection.

The article went on to provide us a polymer comparison for packaging applications that was as follows:

The most common polymers used in packaging are polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polystyrene (PS).  All of the materials are available expanded particle foams (EPF).
