The apparent risks for damages due to sudden vibrations, shocks, drops etc. during the transport and handling of products are the main reason behind the use of blocking and filling materials in industrial packaging. Blocking materials are used in order to immobilize the product and assure the right cushioning, while void filling materials are utilized to totally fill the empty spaces around the packed product.
The four main blocking and filling materials are Paper Pad, Air Pad, Foma-in-place and Loose Fill. There are of course other materials such as Honeycomb, Bubble Wrap, and foam that are used for this purpose, but its not their main filed of applications for such products.
