Honeycomb packaging is a paper-based material that offers a unique combination of superior strength whilst being light-weight.
It provides highest levels of protection due its ability cushion and absorb shock allowing products to transport safely, minimising product damage and returns.
Hexacomb offers the ability to create custom die-cut structures to protect irregular shaped components making it an ideal material for a wide variety of industrial applications, such as automotive, furniture and industrial parts.
Hexacomb customised designs enable packaging optimisation by using the least amount of material to obtain the required level of protection. Packaging designs that utilise hexacomb inherent product strengths allow for light-weighting without compromising package integrity and performance.
The combination of hexacomb and corrugated provides a high resistance full paper-based packaging solution sourced from one supplier to our customers.
Hexacomb is an environmentally-responsible alternative to foam and expanded polystyrene materials because it is made primarily from kraft paper, a renewable forest resource.
