Pregis has introduced Stretchfoam, an “industry first” proprietary polyethylene (PE) resin blend sheet foam with multidirectional stretch for protective packaging applications. Stretchfoam represents the latest addition to the company’s Microfoam line. Initial customer feedback reports a 10% yield increase compared to other sheet foams, making Stretchfoam a cost-effective protective packaging solution.
Pregis’ new “soft to the touch” Stretchfoam provides several attributes which benefit a wide variety of wrapping, surface protection or interleaving applications. Stretchfoam has been engineered with multidirectional stretch which resists tearing or “zippering.” Stretchfoam also offers the same high coefficient of friction (COF) long associated with the Microfoam line. This means that the sheet foam clings to the item it is protecting. (Low COF materials slide back and forth increasing the chance that sensitive product finishes will be subjected to abrasion.) No curing agents are used so there is no grease transfer to the part it protects.
