October 14, 2018 - STREETSBORO, OH - Automated Packaging Systems, the world leader in high-reliability bagging systems, has introduced a new AirPouch® FastWrap™ cushioning wrap that is high loft and 24 inches wide. This new, extra wide version of inflate-on-demand protective packaging material is ideal for large products shipping in large boxes, where both protection and void-fill is important.
AirPouch FastWrap features a patented honeycomb pattern that supports multi-directional wrapping for optimal protection. The 1.25-inch high loft coupled with the 24-inch width makes wrapping large products easier while using less material. Perforations placed every 6.75 inches enable packers to use just the right amount of product to avoid waste. This pre-formed, inflate-on-demand material also reduces shipping and storage costs when compared to pre-filled bundle bubble material.
The new 24-inch wide material comes 1300 linear feet per box and offers 66 percent more void-fill space than standard protective packaging materials. This new material is currently available in clear LLDPE, as well as EarthAware® recycled and biodegradable blends. Custom colors for all FastWrap sizes are also available.
"The growth in online ecommerce has driven the demand for lightweight protective packaging materials that can be used for multiple applications," explains Chris Rempe, Vice President of Global Marketing. "This new AirPouch material meets that need, protecting package contents and filling void space economically," he adds.
