New NaturePlank™ engineered honeycomb packaging material offers brand owners and fabricators a paper-based protective packaging solution. The honeycomb plank is made from kraft paper (linerboard) and water-based adhesives and it offers excellent strength and blocking/bracing for a range of protective packaging applications.

Made with SFI-certified, renewable virgin and post-consumer recycled fibers, the plank is an all-natural alternative to petroleum-based plastic packaging products.

In addition to die-cutting, routing and other conventional converting techniques, NaturePlank can also be laminated to other materials such as polyethylene. NaturePlank™ dimensions are 48- by 108-inches. The product is currently available in thicknesses of 1- and 2-inches. Ideal market applications include appliances, electronics, furniture and other durable goods

Potential Benefits

As well as being lighter in weight than many other protective packaging alternatives NaturePlank™ is easily handled in the paper recycling stream.
