Molded Pulp: A Legacy of Strong, Green Cushioning

Molded Pulp burst on the scene as packaging for delicate items like fluorescent light bulbs and produce, but in recent years it has emerged as a leading material for cushioning in the electronic, consumer, and high volume industrial products space.

Because it is relatively soft and flexible, the paper fibers cushion these products and absorb impact energy in a manner that can be up to 3 times more effective than EPS alternatives. Advances in technology allow cushioning to be designed with more exact tolerances and the push for environmentally friendly packaging (molded pulp is made from both recyclable and recycled paper) has only fueled molded pulp’s growth in popularity.

Slush molded pulp (also known as ‘thick wall’) capitalizes on the unique design strengths of recycled materials to form a packaging solution that often results in a simplified packing process and a total cost reduction.
