What buffer packaging methods are applied in packaging?


The so-called buffer packaging, also known as shockproof packaging, is to prevent product damage, when it is necessary to minimize the influence of external forces. Buffer packaging also refers to the packaging method that takes certain protective measures in order to reduce the shock and vibration of the internal objects and protect them from damage. So, people may wonder what kinds of buffer packaging are used in packaging?

Usually buffer packaging includes partial buffer packaging and full cushioning packaging, according to the function requirements. And it can also be divided into light buffer and heavy cushioning, according to product packaging needs.

The full cushioning method is used when all the space between product and the outer packaging is filled up with cushioning material; The partial cushioning method refers to placing cushioning material only in the corners or key points of the product in packaging.

The light cushioning refers to the filling and separation between the product and the outer packaging with a cross made of two cushioning materials to protect the product during transportation, when the road is bumpy, and the impact force transmitted from the outer packaging can be reduced by the cushioning material before reaching the product contact.

The heavy-duty buffer paper is used as filling and separation between product and outer packaging after it is bent and curled into a ball.

In addition, foam plastic and paper buffer packaging are two buffer packaging materials commonly in use. Although foam plastic has the advantages of light weight, easy processing, good protection performance, wide adaptability, cheap price, good quality, etc., it also has disadvantages for its large volume, and the waste can not be naturally degraded, while incineration treatment produces harmful gas.

The paper buffer packaging material uses a material that can be completely recycled or degraded, which is very environmentally friendly. It is a paper filling and cushioning system based on virgin kraft paper, and the PadPak system composed of raw carton forming equipment can make kraft paper into buffer paper pads with a thickness of two or three layers according to different packaging needs. Then the buffer paper pads can fix the product and provide filling within the box, so as to achieve the cushioning protection effect. The quantity, thickness and the size of the cushioning packaging material can be adjusted according to different products and various packaging needs.
