The Packaging System
Glass Wrap corner protection solution simplifies logistics. This packaging reduces expenses incurred during transport and handling. A modular system, constructed from EPP for reuse and EPS for single use, is smart and clear-cut. These materials, while cost-efficient, remain eco-friendly and 100% recyclable. This design ensures maximum resistance. Glass edges and corners stay protected. Consistency is a key feature.
How The System Functions
- Consult a Logimarkt specialist to determine the necessary components.
- Prepare the packaging’s bottom, top, and vertical profiles.
- Lay the bottom profile, ensuring the corner section is open, then insert vertical profiles.
- Introduce the glass sheet into the packaging, ensuring alignment with the inner profile.
- Secure the top profile and fasten it with a tension strap.
- If desired, attach a cover.
Components and Tools
Glass Wrap shock absorption packaging is compatible with varying glass sizes, shapes, and quantities. It includes:
- Various profiles;
- Transport tools;
- Durable surface covers for branding;
- Strapping belts and material containers.
Glass transport remains a challenge, often incurring significant costs. Glass Wrap addresses this by minimizing damage and slashing expenses. Benefits include:
- Versatility in transport carriers;
- Maximization of loading space;
- Cost savings through reduced return transport and rack maintenance;
- Diminished damage and breakage;
- Streamlined loading processes;
- Convenience for a broader range of personnel.
Handling with flat glass packaging becomes more efficient. Specialized tools and training become less necessary. Damage reduces, and logistical processes are simpler.
For warehousing, the Glass Wrap with static pressure resistance offers stackable solutions, maximizing space. The material demonstrates a solid resistance to moisture. It ensures durability even in humid conditions. It can withstand varying temperatures, making it suitable for diverse climates. It also boasts resistance against chemicals, ensuring its integrity in various environments. Additionally, oils won’t harm the material. A fire-resistant version is available for those requiring extra safety measures
Global regions focus on packaging reusability and disposal norms. Shock absorption Glass Wrap offers two distinct systems tailored for different needs. The EPP system supports multiple uses, making it a sustainable choice for repeated applications. On the other hand, the EPS system is tailored for single-use scenarios. It provides a convenient option for one-time applications. Both systems ensure optimal protection and efficiency.
EPP and EPS come packed with numerous advantages. They excel in shock absorption, ensuring products stay safe during transit. In addition, they possess strong resistance properties, making them durable against various challenges. Notably, both materials can be recycled, aligning with sustainable practices. While EPP suits repeated high-impact scenarios, EPS is more apt for one-time use.
Glass Wrap’s commitment to the environment is evident. The transport safety packaging excludes harmful chemicals; both EPP and EPS versions are 100% recyclable. This packaging system contributes to reducing CO2 emissions.
Testing and Quality Control
Rigorous testing ensures Glass Wrap damage prevention packaging remains top-tier. These include drop tests under various conditions, vibration resistance, and climate resilience. Different nations may have specific test and certificate requirements.
Quality remains paramount. Glass Wrap mandates strict quality protocols for all global licensees, ensuring consistency in customer satisfaction.
EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) & EPS (Expanded Polystyrene)
Material Overview: EPP and EPS are both closed-cell foams with unique traits. Coming from the polymer family, they provide excellent cushioning properties and protection.
- Both materials are lightweight, aiding in transit and reducing freight costs.
- EPP and EPS offer excellent shock absorption, making them ideal for protecting delicate items.
- Both EPP and EPS foams have thermal insulation properties. They keep temperature-sensitive goods stable during transit.
- These foams offer resistance against water and various chemicals. They protect products from harmful external factors.
- Eco-friendly: EPP and EPS are 100% recyclable, promoting sustainability.
- Strength to Weight Ratio: These materials can withstand great force despite being lightweight.
- Customizable: Can be molded into various shapes and sizes to fit diverse products.
