The 100% Recyclable, highly resilient closed-cell material, made from expanded polyethylene (EPE) bead foam.
It is the ideal product for applications such as packaging and cushioning, expandable and returnable dunnage, thermal management and flotation.
Made in Europe and exclusively distributed by ourselves in the UK, the ARPLANK material is made from 25% recycled.
It is one of the most effective packaging materials on the market, with the ability to absorb multiple impacts as well as being sustainable and lightweight. The thermally bonded polyethylene beads create a three-dimensional performance that absorbs and dissipates energy.
This isotropic behaviour means ARPLANK is multidirectional in nature. This same performance in all 3 axes combined with its fine surface protects surface-sensitive or painted goods and makes it an ideal product for protective packaging applications.
The material is being used to make load carriers, CKD (Complete Knock Down) packaging, structural packaging, inserts and also die-cut products. ARPLANK can be fabricated by commonly used operations such as die cutting, splitting, water jet, laser, CNC milling, sawing and moulding.
The three densities that ARPLANK is available in, has the cushioning properties and compression set that competes with XPE.
