Whenever you order something online, you know you will receive that particular product in one piece. And the company has to make sure that they stand up to your expectations. Also the company has to take care that the product is being packed according to the packaging material it requires. A glassware product cannot be shipped just with a cardboard cover and needs something that will keep it intact. There are various types of packaging materials. Below we have discussed five most common and essential packaging supplies every business needs to get their hands on.
Crates and Pallets
These types of packaging supplies are useful to deliver any type of products. Acting as a secondary wrapping crates and pallets keep the goods safe until their delivery. The trick is that pallet keeps the product package raised off the surface thus preventing direct contact with the surface, which can damage the product. Also keeping the product off the ground protects the product from dirt and moisture.
This type of wrapping technique is used both for primary as well as secondary packaging. Here, a product can be shrink wrapped like shrink wrap around CD cases or the whole pallet of packages can be shrink wrapped together so that they are easier to move from one place to another. Shrink wrap not only keeps the packages together but also it provides additional protection such as puncture and abrasion and also provides impact resistance. Other reason to go for shrink wrap packaging technique is that it is made up from plastic. Plastic is easily recyclable and cheaper than any other packaging materials.
Majorly used to pack perishable food, vacuum packaging technique is another unique method to keep the products fresh and safe. The products which need sealing, mostly food materials, are packed using vacuum packaging. Industries making canned or packed foods use vacuum packing. Besides food industry, medical industries also use vacuum packaging for sealing specific types of medicines that require sealed packing.
Preservation packaging is mainly used in food industry. This packaging includes both shrink wrapping and vacuum packaging techniques. Foods that are packed in aluminum cans, or jars undergo preservation packaging. The food materials have to be kept fresh and preservation packaging makes sure to keep them fresh. Bubble wrap is the other form of preservation packaging which doesn’t deal with food industry. Bubble wrap is more of a plastic bubbly cushion sheet that protects your product against the impact if it falls on ground.
Shock Mount Packaging
Extremely fragile products such as glassware, crockery, electronics, etc. are packed using shock mount packaging technique. This type of packaging protects the products from various factors such as shock, vibration, humidity, dust and moisture. This type of packaging is also used to pack some unstable chemical compounds.
