Details

PAC Strapping Products, Inc, a plastic strapping solution provider in the U.S., has manufactured ECOGUARD™ made using completely recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE).

The product is marketed as an alternative to paper or laminated products for edge and corner protection. Ecoguard™ has excellent weather ability and water-resistance. When used in combination with strap or stretch film, Ecoguard™ can stack smaller packages on the pallet, thus minimising spoilage. Used with plastic strap, Ecoguard™ disburses tension around the load, thus increasing package life and reducing shipping damage. Besides stock sizes, depending upon load, this HDPE-based strap can be customised in various sizes.

Potential Benefits

A 100% recycled content product that can also contribute to reduced damage in transit through improved performance.
