Industrial Packaging Applications
Dow's Produce Packaging market features several specialty applications.
COLLATION SHRINK WRAP
Collation shrink wrap is a cost-effective method of collating cans, bottles, cartons and palletized goods, and also offers the transportation benefit of low weight. Dow resins add mechanical strength and prevent the wrap from losing strength in the heat. Dow resins can also allow printing vibrant graphics on the wrap for a unique promotional opportunity.
Protective foam made with Dow resins can be fabricated to precise shapes and sizes, or as a sheet that can then conform to a product’s shape. Protective foam with Dow resins provide substantial cushioning against repeated impacts and abrasion, and they can help reduce shipping costs.
Stretch hood packaging securely wraps entire pallets providing protection, load stability, and puncture resistance. With expertise and a broad range of resins, Dow can provide the perfect stretch hood formulation to meet specific pallet load requirements. Learn more about Stretch Hood.
Stretch wrap made with Dow resins is an effective method of protecting palletized products through storage and distribution. Learn more about Stretch Wrap.
HEAVY DUTY SACKS
When formulated with the correct Dow resins, heavy duty sacks are great for handling large volumes of material or for keeping their ingredients fresh. Or both. Learn more about Heavy Duty Sacks.
Dow’s high density polyethylene (HDPE) resins offer toughness, rigidity, and strength for injection-molded items such as plastic pails. Made with Dow resins, plastic pails are cost-effective, re-usable, and recyclable. Converters also appreciate the high processability of Dow’s HDPE resins.
Durable plastic crates made with Dow resins are an efficient method of storing, carrying and distributing a wide range of products. When created with Dow’s high density polyethylene (HDPE) resins, plastic crates are cost-efficient, re-usable, and recyclable. Converters also appreciate the high processability of Dow HDPE resins.
