What is On-Demand Foam-in-Place Packaging?

Foam-in-place packaging is an on-demand, custom solution that ensures the highest level of product protection through the shipping process. Made in real-time, foam-in-place systems combine two liquid components in a bag or film. The expandable foam mixture rapidly surrounds the product, creating a custom protective mold. Foam-in-place is an ideal solution for companies shipping different configurations of fragile products. The customized cushion molds itself around the product, protecting sharp edges, corners and odd shapes. Request a quote.
