Void and loose fill material to provide complete protection. Void and loose fill materials are a flexible solution to protect and cushion products during transit. They provide all round product protection filling the space and gaps around any product. Once an item is placed into a box, void and loose fill materials are filled into the box until they fill all the remaining space around the valuable product. The purpose of using such packing materials is to ensure that the item will be held firmly in place, will not move around when the box is handled or transported and therefore will not be susceptible to damage. The cushioning nature of void and loose fill material will absorb any impact, should the box be dropped, before the shock reaches the item inside and causes any damage.
In order to serve the purpose, material used as void and loose fill should be resilient and should have excellent blocking and bracing properties with high compressive strength. It should also be odourless. Preferably such material should be biodegradable and their disposal should not pose any problem for the user. Above all they should be light weight and cost effective packaging material. Supreme Industries offers several products like PROTECcapcell and PROTECbubble which have multiple uses and can be used as void fill.
PROTECcapcell is widely used for case insert, box lining, protective pads, corner pads, partition lining, tapes & gaskets, returnable packaging, heavy machinery packaging pads, space fillers etc. It is a closed-cell, crosslinked polyethylene / EVA / rubber foam manufactured in block form and has extremely fine microcellular structure. It is non-porous, non-corrosive, non-abrasive and has no effect of water. Also it has excellent impact, abrasion, compression and tear resistant qualities making it ideal as void filler.

It is such an invaluable packaging product that can be used for multiple purposes in packaging of various types of products ranging from consumer durables and white goods to engineering components to furniture panels and profiles.
