Hexacomb Packaging - paper based and light-weight

Hexacomb packaging is a paper-based material that offers a unique combination of superior strength and light weight. Due to its outstanding ability to cushion and absorb shock, Hexacomb allows products to transport safely and minimizes product damage and returns. Hexacomb offers the ability to create custom die-cut structures to protect irregular-shaped components, making it ideal for a wide variety of industrial applications such as automotive, furniture, and industrial parts.

Hexacomb customized designs enable packaging optimization by using the least amount of material to obtain the required level of protection, and its inherent strength reduces packaging weight without compromising integrity and performance. The combination of Hexacomb and corrugated provides a high resistance full paper-based packaging solution sourced from one supplier to our customers.

Hexacomb is an environmentally-responsible alternative to foam and expanded polystyrene materials because it is made primarily from kraft paper, a renewable forest resource.
