Versatile Packaging Material

Polystyrene packaging is available in two different forms – foam and solid. Foamed polystyrene is used for cups, plates, bowls, egg cartons and protection for shipping appliances, electronic products, fragile items etc.

Solid polystyrene is used for CD cases, some food containers, cutlery, yogurt containers etc.

Polystyrene protective packaging comes in two primary forms –   loose fill and shape moulded packaging. Loose fill enables different shaped items, such as office stationery or cosmetics to be shipped in the same container. Shape moulded packaging fits securely around products like computers, TVs, electronic equipment and appliances to protect them during shipping and transit

Loose fill and shape moulding are lighter in weight than other forms of protective packaging and this saves energy and keeps costs down for shipment.
