IPS Packaging Offers Environmental Friendly Air Pillows to Pharmaceutical Company
A pharmaceutical company was looking for a green solution to replace their current foam-in-place polyurethane void-fill, but they also needed something tough and flexible. They wanted a product with a longer shelf life, and with a large amount of shipments going out on a daily basis, cost was also a concern. They were skeptical when they first heard about air pillows as a possible solution. Traditional air pillows have not typically been recognized as being environmental friendly. IPS Packaging decided to introduce them to a new air pillow that is in the recyclable category 4.
Providing a renewable, inflatable, void-fill packaging solution was something that the company had never considered. With the same quality performance of other leading brands, the new biodegradable packaging solution provided all of the green benefits needed by the pharmaceutical company. The high-performance, low-density polyethylene air pillow film provided by IPS not only met the company’s green initiative, but it also provided greater puncture resistance.
• Uses 50% less resin
