The new curbside padded mailer is specifically designed for sustainability-focused companies shipping large volumes of cosmetics, books and jewelry
PAC Worldwide, a provider of customised packaging and contract packaging solutions, has introduced a new 100% recyclable paper padded mailer called Ecojacket.
The new curbside padded mailer has been specifically designed for sustainability-focused companies shipping large volumes of cosmetics, books and jewelry.
Ecojacket’s protective cushioning is said to come from natural kraft paper on the exterior, which is bonded to a fluted interior paper.
A bottom fold and side pouch heat seals are designed to deliver better bursting strength, and the pressure-sensitive self-seal adhesive closure system turns the package into tamper-evident for easy use.
PAC stated that its design and engineering division subjected the prototype to comprehensive materials testing prior to the product’s launch.
The company has also carried out a series of fulfillment trials to gauge filling speed and ease of packing.
The rigid properties of the new padded mailer delivered consistent outcomes ranging from reduced friction in packing to enhanced gripping power of the package when traveling down conveyor belts and packing chutes, said the company.
PAC Worldwide president Steve Foster said: “It requires supreme effort and collaboration to bring a product like this to market.
“I could not be more proud of what we accomplished when you look at value creation – not only for customers, but the world in which we live.”
The Ecojacket is part of PAC Worldwide’s line of customised and stock packaging solutions, as well as automated packaging systems.
In August this year, PAC Worldwide opened a new tech centre in Ohio for the concept development, testing, and production of packaging prototypes.
The company’s customers range from large Fortune 50 consumer packaged goods brands to e-commerce companies, distributors, and couriers.
Established in 1975, PAC Worldwide carries out operations in the US, Mexico, and Malaysia with around 2,000 team members.
