For regularly shaped objects that are in need of additional protection in the box, you can use foam chips as the base layer to create a soft cushion for your item. It provides additional anti-slip characteristics and also removes pressure, preventing damage from happening.
Foam chips or foam peanuts interlock when pressed and are excellent void-fillers since they are pliable and adhere to the shape of the container and the item being packaged. This quality thus preserves the item from getting dinged or broken during transport or in storage. Foam chips prevent the items from being moved while inside the containers, minimizing the opportunity for damage to occur.
Foam chips are reusable in moving and shipping and you can also find other ways to make them useful after being used for such activities. Some consumers use foam chips as fillers for cushions, pillows and bean bags as they seem to hold heat and provide relaxing, near-therapeutic effects as well.
Normally, foam chips are made of non-biodegradable polystyrene which make them non-environment friendly. However, recent advances have given us biodegradable foam chips which can dissolve in water and not harm the environment. It is really up to the consumer which one they’ll use since both types of foam chips offer the same level of protection for your valuable items in storage or in transport.
Lightweight packing peanuts reduce shipping cost. Our Eco- foam packing chips are starch- based so they're environmentally friendly.
