Expanded Polystyrene Packaging

Fabricated EPS Packaging

CushPack Fabri-tech EPS allows the customer maximum protection without the tooling expense associated with custom molded parts. Fabricated components are hot wire cut from computer generated patterns, and if necessary, assembled together to provide a packaging solution specific to the customer's needs. This method is well-suited or lower volume product lines where tooling costs cannot be justified yet a custom part is still required. EPS is comprised of 90 percent air. The shock absorbing properties and other qualities of EPS foam, combined with its low-cost, high insulating properties, and ease of processing, make it a popular packaging material.

EPS Advantages:

  • Excellent protection and cushioning
