Protective packaging solution provider Storopack has launched a new polyurethane foam with renewable content to ship goods and lower impact on the environment. 

Named as FOAMplus 5504RC, the new packaging foam partly consists of sugar-based material obtained by renewable sources. The renewable content weighs just 0.30lb/ft3.

The ‘on demand’ packaging solution, when mixed with the two liquid components, will expand to (H)CFC- and HFC-free polyurethane and up to 220 times their liquid volume.

The expanded foam when hardens takes on the shape of the packaged goods and makes it suitable for cushioning, void filling, and shock absorbent.

Storopack FOAMplus product manager Marco Corradi said: “Protective packaging that saves resources is important within our industry and elsewhere, too.

“We attach great importance to the development of such protective packaging.

“Our new FOAMplus 5504RC polyurethane foam is the first with renewable content with just 0.30lb/ft3 in the foam packaging market – and our customers can expect the usual outstanding protective properties of our FOAMplus foam packaging.”

The high compression packaging foam protects heavy goods including mechanical and electronic parts and automotive parts.

Additionally, the lightweight packaging solution minimises shipping weight and eliminates use of oil-based foams. It can be reused multiple times.

The packaging foam is currently available from Storopack in North America.

In February last year, Storopack unveiled a new paper cushion system designed for applications requiring high throughput and secure packaging material.
