As product applications change, so do their packaging requirements. Watch the video to learn more about some of the packaging trends we're seeing and how shrink wrap and tight wrap technology play a key role in facilitating effective, efficient and function-critical product distribution.
It’s a pretty exciting time to launch projects involving products packaged in bags and pouches. The overwhelming consumer acceptance of, and continued demand for, flexible packaging is driving its advancement at a blistering pace.
An absorbent pad manufacturer needed a better, more cost-effective alternative to corrugate boxes and plastic for packaging its products. Learn why Double Tight Wrap technology proved to be an ideal solution and the benefits it afforded one manufacturer in this short video.
Business travelers can attest that petroleum prices may fluctuate, but the number of passengers on an airplane still only goes in one direction: up. What drives this practice? Efficiency. The goal is obvious: amortize fixed transportation costs as best as possible. This same practice is used when it comes to utilizing truck cargo space for goods that need to make their way from manufacturing to retail.
This case study features a leading processor, marketer and distributor of rice and discusses how keeping their secondary packaging costs low enabled them to make a successful transition from a carton to a premium stand-up bag.
Consumer goods and other product manufacturers are constantly on the lookout for more cost-effective ways to bundle multiple units of their products. Tight Wrap and traditional Shrink Bundling both provide secondary packaging options for much less than the cost of corrugate. However, Tight Wrap offers unique capabilities and efficiencies in several areas, one of which is film cost and usage.
To help you understand what those film efficiencies are, here’s an outline of the three film benefits of using Tight Wrap for secondary packaging:
When was the last time you drove around the back of a large big box retailer or the local grocery store and saw large, strapped bundles of corrugate stacked just waiting to be picked up?
Now, consider the costs associated with each of the cardboard containers within that bundle:

- The cost of the space consumed by the waste after product has been placed on the shelf
- The cost of the carbon footprint to not only make, but to recycle cardboard
Eliminating or reducing corrugate in secondary packaging not only decreases costs, it also provides benefits to all members of the supply chain:
