Considerable quantities of EPS are also used in packaging applications. Its exceptional shock absorbing characteristics make it ideal for the storage and transport of fragile and expensive items such as electronic equipment, wines, chemicals and pharmaceutical products. The outstanding thermal insulation and moisture resistant properties of EPS enables freshness extension of perishable products such as produce and seafood. Moreover, its compression resistance means that EPS is ideal for stackable packaging goods. The majority of EPS packaging manufactured in Australia is used in the transport of fruit, vegetables and seafood. EPS packaging is used extensively for both the domestic and export market.
Choosing the right packaging material requires a balance of many factors, including ease of handling and storage, weight, cushioning characteristics, manufacturing efficiency, ease of identification, customer requirements, cost and more.
The expanded materials EPS (Expanded polystyrene) and EPE (Expanded polyethylene) are today one of the most interesting products for protection and product transportation. The EPS is a fully recyclable material, used to carry and protect alimentary products, up to insulate houses. The EPE indeed is a new material which combines properties from EPS and PE, and allows to create products that are not only protecting but also completing the products itself
With our know how in product development and mold design, we can create products that can do far more than only working as a packaging. Technical products often need to correspond to specific applications or to be combined or finished with other components. These products are very sensitive in their characteristics and finishing. We are able to deliver a broad range of solutions and applications.
One of the most common uses of these materials is the protection segment, where the impact absorption characteristics and the stiffness of the EPS and EPE are one of the leading points of differentiation. Due to a broad range of machines we can expand from small to very large products.
EPS is a non toxic recyclable material, witch is used to protect and transport different types of wet food. Cheese, Fisk, Meat, Salad, all of these products need to preserve their liquids, temperature, and their taste. This is not possible with standard paper packaging, but needs specific boxes of EPS. In our range we have many types of boxes, that may suite your needs, and we can also develop something specific upon your request.
AA Sourcing produces the world’s finest line of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam packaging material. Designed by our expert team with the strictest adherence to exacting manufacturing specifications and a level of quality control second to none, our EPS foam is highly versatile and capable of meeting a vast array of protective packaging uses.
EPS – also known as expanded polystyrene – is a lightweight packaging product that is made of expanded polystyrene beads. While it is very light in weight, it is incredibly durable and structurally strong, providing impact resistant cushioning and shock absorption for a wide variety of products made for shipping. EPS foam is an excellent alternative to traditional corrugated packaging materials.
EPS foam packaging is used for many industrial, food service, and construction applications, including food packaging, fragile items shipping, computer and television packaging, and product shipping of all types.
