Expanding Polystyrene Foam Packaging

Expanding Polystyrene is a very lightweight, low cost foam that is a very flexible product that can be used for a range of packaging solutions. As a product it is very versatile, which has led to it becoming a go to product for product protection. The shapes and sizes that it can be created in means it is suited to most markets and products.

For any company shipping or transporting fragile products, with the wide range of styles of foam grades at our disposable, we will have a composite packaging solution for your product.

If you are shipping products in cardboard packaging outer boxes, expanded polystyrene or polyethylene end caps are effective at providing support and creating an impact.

Polyethylene Foam Packaging

This is the ideal material for most of our foam packaging solutions; we produce custom made packaging using both cross-linked and non cross-linked foam in a large range of materials, colours, density and grades.

One of the reasons that this material is popular is due to the fact that these foams are recyclable and reusable. This is down to the product being closed cell foam that is made without the use of CFCs and HCFCs. Due to this and its flexibility it can be formed into any required shape making it our recommendation for high performance protection packaging.

Expert packaging suppliers for over 40 years, with an emphasis on plastic-free packaging

In the late 1970s, two friends and colleagues, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton saw a gap in the market for a different type of packaging supplier. At the time, other businesses were selling custom made boxes and stocking packaging consumables, but Tim and Stewart wanted to offer more than that. They wanted to give their clients additional services, such as warehouse storage and the ability to have their packaging delivered as and when it was required. Packaging Supplies was established, and the rest is history.
