The Versatility of Molded Pulp

In the early days of molded pulp packaging, the material was known for its excellent protection of delicate items like lightbulbs and produce.

But as a pioneer in use of molded pulp for cushioning, we at FiberCel have more than 40 years of experience designing molded pulp cushioning for products in the electronic, consumer, and high volume industrial products space. From fragile glass bottles used in medical applications, to engine components and HVAC units, we have used molded pulp to successfully protect a wide range of products in transit.

When compared to traditional cushioning materials like Foam-in-place and EPS, Thick-wall molded pulp is soft and flexible; this flexibility, coupled with strong design, allows molded pulp to absorb impact energy in a manner that can be three times more effective than EPS alternatives.

Molded pulp not only provides superior cushioning when compared to traditional materials, it can reduce weight and for materials that are especially susceptible to scratches, we offer water-soluble coatings that can help eliminate surface scuffing.

FiberCel packaging is made from 100% recycled molded pulp designed for stackability to decrease shipping and storage space needs. It is a durable, recyclable, volume-efficient packaging solution that in many cases can reduce labor costs for handling by up to 10%.
