FiberFlute: sustainable cushioning solution

FiberFlute is a sustainable packaging solution that provides outstanding cushioning performance for a wide range of products. Fiberflute is an eco-friendly alternative to foam and is 100% paper-recyclable.

 

MAIN BENEFITS

Outstanding cushioning performance

FiberFlute absorbs more shock with less material compared to polyethylene foam. It performs in both dry and humid conditions and can resist multiple drops.

Paper-based and recyclable

FiberFlute is a recyclable cushioning solution made completely from paper. Unlike plastic-based foam solutions, FiberFlute is 100% paper-recyclable. 

Highly efficient for storage

FiberFlute has a nestable shape that serves as a smart space-saver, resulting in cost savings in both inbound transport and warehousing.

 

THE SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGE

In order to be circular, materials must be recycled or otherwise naturally degrade. Mixed material solutions require separation of elements before recycling, which adds additional challenges to the chain. As such, more and more companies and countries are implementing strict measures to reduce waste.

MAKING THE DIFFERENCE

FiberFlute contributes to a better, more sustainable society without sacrificing functionality. It minimizes landfills by utilizing fiber-based solutions that are paper-recyclable. On top of waste reduction, it reduces CO2 emissions and improves the health of communities around the world due to less trash being burnt and less trash ending up in the ocean.

Last but not least, the paper used to produce FiberFlute comes from responsibly managed forests that are FSC certified. 

 

ECO-FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVE TO FOAM

In a comparative analysis between polyethylene foam (30kg/m3) and Nefab's FiberFlute type 190 (lowest density in the FiberFlute range), we used equivalent material thickness (20/40/60mm) to verify which solution performed better. The result showed 40-45% lower G-values for FiberFlute, which means that less material is required to protect products when using FiberFlute as compared to polyethylene.
