With consumers becoming more aware of the part their buying habits play in protecting the environment, businesses need to adapt, not only to meet demand for more environmentally friendly products and packaging, but also to meet ever more stringent sustainability obligations.

One of the key ways in which many businesses are meeting both buyer demand and recycling and recovery responsibilities, is by avoiding unsustainable options, and using recyclable foam materials as packaging solutions, or as recyclable foam products.

Stratocell – As a closed-cell, polyethylene recyclable foam, Stratocell is light-weight, highly water resistant, and has substantial cushioning properties, making it ideal for use as packaging when shipping delicate and damp-averse products.

ARPLANK – ARPLANK is a 100% recyclable, closed-cell, bead foam product. Produced without VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) blowing agents, ARPLANK has a variety of uses, including packaging solutions that require a high-level of shock absorbency and chemical resistance.

How is Polyethylene Foam Recycled?

Most polyethylene foams can be reused many times over without suffering degradation, but, when it comes to recycling, it’s usually achieved using a hot melting process, with the melted product being turned into pellets to be reused in the manufacture of new foam products.
