Paper packing materials
Lightweight kraft paper for packaging material is commonly used as an inexpensive void fill. Heavier weight kraft paper is more rigid and can be used to block and brace heavy objects such as when packing industrial and automotive parts. In both cases the packaging paper keeps shipping costs down because it adds very little to the weight of the carton.
To be sure you’re using your kraft paper supplies as efficiently as possible it’s important to have a paper packaging system such as one of Storopack’s PAPERplus systems. Our paper packaging machines are designed for the most effective use of your kraft paper packaging materials. Storopack systems use a patented process to crimp the paper that gives you the most volume from your paper supplies. Using a controlled amount of packaging paper is much more effective and efficient than crumpling the paper by hand.
The brown kraft packaging paper is a safe and effective packaging material for most products. Some industries require the bleached white kraft paper such as for packing and shipping pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. Both types of paper are available in varying weights to fulfill different in-the-box packaging requirements.
