Layer Pads - divide stacks of products

Layer pads are used inside cases to divide layers of stacked products such as cans, bottles, and other rigid packaging. The layer pad stabilizes the products and disperses weight evenly to ensure they remain free from damage during transit. The top layer pad also offers additional product protection when cases are being cut open.

Layer pads are available in a range of corrugated cardboard or solid board grades, and are designed to provide the required amount of strength to meet the physical requirements of your supply chain. 100% recyclable and made from a renewable resource, layer pads are an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic products.
