Introducing a whole new sustainable, cushioning void filler solution for the E‑Commerce market
Available with Automatic or Manual dispensers for various shipping speeds, HexcelPack’s HexaFil™ combines product protection and sustainability.
HexcelPack is extremely excited to introduce HexaFil™, an innovative, 100% paper-based void fill solution that provides superior block and bracing and additional cushioning in the box vs. traditional paper and plastic-based void fill options. Available with either automatic or manual dispensing units to accommodate various shipping speeds, HexaFil™ delivers ultimate void fill combined with sustainability benefits, including being curbside recyclable and fully biodegradable.
The company’s HexaFil™ void fill utilizes the same three-dimensional hexagon design and proprietary slit paper technology as its signature cushioning product, HexcelWrap™. This method makes the paper “flex,” expanding its volume while maximizing the strength and stiffness of its fibers. When HexaFil™ is dispensed either automatically or manually, it spirals like a helix. This creates the bulk required for effective void fill, ensuring packed items will be nestled in a stable position and therefore less likely to shift during transport. This results in a superior void fill product proven to outperform environmentally harmful alternatives and reduces the amount of materials required to ship consumers their products.
AutoHexaFil™ is the fully automatic dispensing solution for HexaFil™ void fill. The machine uses a novel bladeless cutting technique to dispense the sustainable void fill material into corrugated shippers up to three times faster than alternatives. Fully automatic with a programmable screen and electric operation via foot pedal, the machine quickly dispenses HexaFil™ in preset lengths with no cutting blades or dangerous components needed. The AutoHexaFil™ stands 6½ feet tall and is adjustable in height to fit over packaging conveyor systems. The unit also has wheels for easy maneuvering.
When speed is less of a factor, or in applications with lower shipping volume and space and technician constraints, like most Ship-From-Store operations, Manual HexaFil™ is an ideal solution. The manual dispenser can be conveniently set next to a small packing table with the HexaFil™ easily dispensed from the roll by hand.
