November 6, 2016 - STREETSBORO, OH – Automated Packaging Systems, the world leader in high-reliability bagging systems, has announced the introduction of a new AirPouch® FastWrap “High Loft” protective packaging material with extra tall cellular cushions. The new High Loft material uses the same quilted bubble pattern as traditional FastWrap materials, but with 1.25” high air cushion cells, which are 66% higher than standard 0.75” cells. This extra height provides excellent cushioning for protective packaging applications.

AirPouch FastWrap High Loft functions as a firm, thick cushioning material when top or bottom filling boxes. The patented honeycomb pattern allows the material to easily bend around corners and supports multi-directional wrapping with excellent product protection in minimal space. A proprietary air channel between cells distributes air evenly throughout multiple cells, maintaining protection by eliminating “popped” bubbles.

All AirPouch FastWrap materials are inflate-on-demand, which provides a significant cost savings compared to pre-filled bundled bubble, paper packing and foam sheeting.

FastWrap materials come in high-yield boxes of flat, preformed material, which significantly reduces shipping and warehousing costs. The new High Loft protective wrapping material is available in EarthAware® recycled, biodegradable and clear blends. EZ-Tear perforations every 6.75 inches minimize waste and make it easy to get the precise amount of material needed.

“The new AirPouch FastWrap High Loft material is a true hybrid between void-fill, wrapping, and block and brace protective packaging applications,” says Chris Rempe, Director of Global Marketing. “The AirPouch FastWrap is a lightweight, compact inflation system that helps companies save money and improve the quality of packaging with inflate-on-demand technology. This new High Loft material adds to the versatility of the AirPouch product line,” says Rempe.
