ExpandOS protective void fill packaging

Tuesday, 14 June, 2022 | Supplied by: The Ribbon Supply Co.


ExpandOS is a protective void fill that is fully certified biodegradable, compostable and also holds SFI certification in the US. It has been used in the packaging industry for over 15 years in the US and Europe, and now has a growing presence in Australia and NZ. ExpandOS can be branded by product owners to help with environmental marketing.

The 40 x 40 x 36 mm triangular structure is made from 400 GSM recycled kraft board with notches on the edges to facilitate interlocking with each other. The result is a rigid mass that is designed to stop product movement in the carton. If a carton is accidentally dropped by freight couriers, the packaging solution can help to absorb the energy from the fall, protecting the product and reducing breakage significantly. For example, it has been used to reduce breakage of flat screen TVs by placing another box around the TV and filling the void with ExpandOS.

Designed to not only reduce breakage in transit but also reduce carbon footprint, the packaging solution is suitable for products such as ceramics, crystal and glass, electronics, commercial parts and equipment, general manufacturing and even in aerospace markets.
