Different Types Of Packaging Materials For Fragile Glassware

The fragile glassware travels a long distance from the manufacturing plant to the retail stores and finally reaches your homes. There is no surprise that this whole journey can easily crack or break the glassware but still you receive them in superfine condition when you buy them. This is possible due to the effective and protective packaging boxes that prevent them from damaging, especially by absorbing the shocks.

expanded polystyrene for packaging

Given below are different types of packaging box materials for fragile products:   

Polystyrene – it is one the most used packaging materials when it comes to pack and transport fragile glassware. They are used for making polystyrene mug boxes, glasses, bowls and many other things. The products are safe and secure in this kind of packaging. They are very light in weight as well as they provide good support to the products packed in it. Due to its soft and flexible structure, it absorbs the shocks and doesn’t let the glassware get damaged even a bit.

Cork – it is another most used material for packaging of fragile products like glassware. Cork is an eco friendly product and it can be easily molded in any shape. Thus, it provides good support to any kind of product. A good thing about cork packaging is that it can be used as creative packaging and many manufacturers print the logo and product description on it. Cork is one of the best packaging products for glassware because it has good shock absorbing power and its thick layer gives cushiony walls.

Given below are some advantages of this process:

Low cost coating – While other process can cost you big bills for metal coating, this process can be done at very cheaper rates. As compared to HVOF and Plasma spray, metal spray costs very less as it doesn’t require much energy and other associated materials. Their equipments take 5-10kW of energy while any other process’s equipments may take more than 50kW. So, the agencies offer this process at lower cost.       

Double metal spray – With this process, you can get the benefit of mixed coating. In this process, a mixture of two melted metals is sprayed. So, instead of getting a coat of two mixtures separately, you can get it all done in single coat.

Safe and risk free – Other spray coatings combust harmful gases and produce a high wave of plasma energy which continuously and slowly causes harm to the workers. But with hot metal spray there are no such issues and it doesn’t cause any harm to anyone.
