Pop Starch Loose Fill Chips "Biodegradable Void Fill"

Product Description

Pop Starch Loose Fill Chips "Biodegradable Void Fill"

Made from expanded starch, Pop Starch is 100% compostable and biodegradable with no disposal costs, easier handling due to being non static - reducing labour time, and having many environmental benefits. A Material Specification and Safety Data Sheet is available for export and customs.

 

Sizes Available:

  • 350L Bag (Pictured)
  • 10L Bag

Please note: Due to the high freight costs of the 350L Bag we are unable to deliver this product into the South Island or to Rural Address's. If you would like a price on delivery to the South Island or a Rural Address please email us info@hardypackaging.co.nz. Also, because of this, there is a significant saving by collecting this item from our store.

 

Pop Starch has significant Performance Characteristics:

  • Superior flow characteristics reduce packing time and labour costs.
  • Excellent anti-shock and resilience properties make it suitable as void fill and for the protection of fragile, sharp or pointed Items.
  • Low density gives weight and cost savings for transport.
  • Will not ‘spring’ out of a carton, making it tidier and time saving.
  • Naturally antistatic, no time wasting clean up (polystyrene foam will cling to almost anything).
  • Antistatic properties make Pop Starch suitable for packaging of electronics.
  • Material Passed US Military Specification for Packaging Material Electrostatic Adhesion Tests Paragraph 3.12
  • Can be compressed to form or take on any shape to prevent product migration.
  • Ideal for export, many countries now regulate imports and packaging materials
  • Some countries ban the import of Foam Polystyrene plastic, as they would be importing Landfill.
  • Packaging material showed no signs of volume reduction or under fill in corrugated cartons during a 3 day test period at 40℃ and 80% Relative Humidity.
