Sealed Air Corp. announces a new variation on its Korrvu suspension and retention packaging that combines the best of both formats into a third new hybrid category. The Korrvu Hybrid package design looks like Korrvu retention packaging, but offers the performance benefit of Korrvu suspension packaging, the company says. The Korrvu Hybrid package uses a retention frame and elastomeric film to hold items securely in place during shipment. When the side flaps of the corrugated retention frame are folded up, the resilient film is loosened, creating an insertion pocket where the item can be placed. When the flaps are folded down, the film, which is attached to the corrugated frame, stretches over the product and holds it securely in place.
Like a Korrvu suspension package, the Hybrid package holds the item securely in the air space of the shipping container and away from the sides of the box. The new design is suitable for low-profile products requiring retention-type surface protection with a suspension-type hold, such as cell phones, cameras, and laptops.
Korrvu Hybrid packaging provides a lower-cost solution compared with other suspension packages, the company says. It is also recyclable and contains more than 30 percent recovered paper, making it easy for customers to be environmentally responsible. In addition, the packaging stores flat to reduce transportation and storage requirements.
