What is Foam Packaging for?

Polystyrene is part of the consumer world. You see it everywhere without really noticing it, but clever technology has made this a versatile product for creating 3D displays and sturdy packaging. You could be sitting on bespoke foam cushions right now, not realizing the foam is made of polystyrene.

Vertapak creates foam not just for packaging items safely but also for creating new items. Examples include furnishings, frames, and exhibits.  It can be shaped and moulded into 3-dimensional shapes of all types and sizes. What looks like wood could actually be foam lettering. A figurine you imagine must be made of stone or heavy plastic could be sculpted from polystyrene. Mattresses, sofas, chairs, and cushions are often filled with this material. It has an advantage over other materials for being lightweight and easy to use.

Vertapak, a company from the Midlands, has managed to maintain quick service yet design or replicate customers’ designs from scratch. Scan your drawings or specs into a computer and send it to the Vertapak office remotely. Order any amount of the item you require and see how quickly they can get your order out.

There is a misconception about polystyrene that it is environmentally harmful. Maybe the old stuff was, but times have changed. Its main property is air: more than 95%. Polystyrene foam packaging and inserts are not constructed from harmful gases either. Foam is easily and extensively recycled by Vertapak. They reduce large pieces to granules or beads of uniform shape which, when packed together, become tight bricks of polystyrene. These are shipped to recycling firms and later become more products such as picture frames, pots, and more furniture.

Feel comfortable knowing you can trust this well-established firm which was begun in 1993. That is 20 years of building a reputation, developing products, and learning skills. The experience of the company owners, however, goes back at least another decade.
