HexcelPack Introduces First-Ever 100% Paper-Based Eco-Friendly Pallet Wrapping Material

Internationally-patented PalletWrap™ is cost-effective, fully recyclable and requires no modification to existing pallet wrapping machinery.

Bristol, CTHexcelPack, a developer of eco-friendly, paper-based protective cushioning solutions to replace bubble packaging and other plastic or foam-based materials, has introduced PalletWrap™, an innovative 100% paper-based pallet wrapping material. A cost-effective and sustainable shipping solution, PalletWrap™ is a fully-recyclable, plastic-free alternative to traditional pallet wrapping material.

Developed with high-tension PowerStretch™ technology designed specifically for pallet use, PalletWrap™ provides maximum protection and adhesion to ensure integrity of goods during transport. The solution utilizes a new variation of HexcelPack’s groundbreaking slit paper technology with a unique hexagon slit pattern and eight times more rows of slits than its sister product, HexcelWrap™. This process converts extensible paper into a three-dimensional, internationally patented cushioning product by making precise cuts at specific angles. 

As a result, the paper product is able to stretch into shape, maximizing the strength and stiffness of its fibers, creating a much stronger wrap with the ability to nearly double in length. 

HexcelPack’s PalletWrap™ is compatible with certain existing automated pallet wrapping equipment, and does not require major modifications or special machinery to integrate. Customers can simply add the new material to their current pallet wrapping equipment and begin use immediately.

Benefits of HexcelPack’s PalletWrap™ include:

  • Pallet Product Protection: Engineered with PowerStretch™ technology, PalletWrap™ delivers protection and adhesion. Seamlessly integrated onto existing automated pallet machinery, the lightweight, high-stretch material quickly and easily wraps pallets prior to transport. 
  • Sustainability: Completely paper-based, PalletWrap™ is made from 100% “Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)” Canadian Paper for exemplary sustainability and little to no impact on the environment – all while delivering protection to transport goods safely and securely. The paper used to produce PalletWrap™ is fully curbside recyclable and biodegradable. 
  • Return On Investment: Using PalletWrap™ is as impactful on the bottom line as it is on the environment. Protective, reusable as alternative packaging material, and cost-effective, the system allows retailers to expediently recoup their investment.

“Developing innovative, cost-effective and sustainable alternatives to traditional shipping solutions, without sacrificing product protection, is the core of what we do,” said Lorne Herszkowicz, Partner at HexcelPack. “Our PalletWrap™ with PowerStretch™ technology is backed by years of product development to utilize our slit-paper technology in a completely new way – providing the ideal amount of tension, protection and adhesion needed for pallet wrapping.”

HexcelPack will be demonstrating its cost-effective, sustainable wrapping products for a wide array of product shipping needs at Pack Expo 2021, Booth SU-8425 held September 27-29 in Las Vegas.
