For many years, the effectiveness of Expanded Polystyrene has been proven in numerous packaging applications used by a wide variety of industries. Lightweight EPS foam is ideal for packaging applications due to its physical properties, particularly its cushioning characteristics, dimensional stability, and its thermal and moisture resistance.
Lightweight, resilient, and attractive EPS reduces packaging cost as well as product damage and moisture. Fewer package components means smaller inventories and increased productivity on the packaging line. Shipping costs are also reduced because of less weight. Shock ribs can be engineered in to reduce weight/material volume, as well as cushion and protect contents. Non-abrasive EPS foam protects fine finishes and thermal properties insulate package contents from temperature changes and moisture. Expanded Polystyrene is not weakened or damaged by moisture exposure.
Computer guided cutting systems can duplicate any line pattern with accurate, consistent, and smooth cuts in Expanded Polystyrene foam sheets or blocks. The need for expensive dies and molds can be eliminated. Contact us at Northwest Foam Products, Inc. for more information and to place your order with us today!
