What Are Packing Materials?

Packing Materials are materials used to transport and store goods, products, and parts.

Packing materials are used to protect packed items from external shocks, dryness, moisture, temperature changes, static electricity, dust, insects, etc., and to improve the efficiency of storage and distribution. In addition to the above purposes, some materials are also used to promote the sale of packaged goods.

Types of Packing Material

Packing materials includes outer packing materials (cardboard, plastic bags, crates, wooden boxes, containers, etc.), inner packing materials (foam cushioning material, styrofoam, urethane sponge, dividers, etc.), and secondary materials used for securing (string, adhesive tape, binding bands, stretch film, shrink film, etc.).

While there are many familiar household packing materials such as cardboard, plastic bags, and packing tape, a wide variety of shapes and materials are also used in industries such as automobiles, precision instruments, pharmaceuticals, and food products.

Product packaging is required not only to protect products but also to display and convey product information. Stand-up packs and stand-up pouches with high transparency and ease of viewing, and blister packs with excellent product visibility are examples of such products.

Design is also important to visually appeal the attractiveness of the product. Heat-shrinkable shrink labels are used as labels for many containers, including PET bottles, because they allow for variations in appearance design simply by switching labels.

Packing Material for Physical and Chemical Experiments and Medical Fields

To prevent contamination of products used in scientific and medical experiments, which require a high level of cleanliness, Packing material must also be manufactured in a clean room with air purity ensured.

In many cases, such products need to be sterilized by gas or autoclave, etc. Packing material for each sterilization method must be used. Containers such as samplers are also selected according to the application after confirming cleanliness and sterilization compatibility.
