Packaging Materials: Your Thermoplastic Options

When it comes to packaging options, you have quite a few different options. You can use thermoplastics for the entire package or perhaps thermoplastics with a combination of another material, such as cardboard or foil. Here are just a few of the different options you might want to consider for your packaging needs.

A clamshell or a blister package works well for many products. Various types of thermoplastic can be used as your packaging materials. A blister pack or blister package is a package that typically has backing formed from a thin sheet of plastic or perhaps foil or paperboard. A clamshell is a package that is connected at one edge and opens up, much like a clam.

Blister packages can be made out of many thermoplastic packaging materials and are excellent choices for many types of products. You often see pharmaceuticals packaged in blister packs, such as over-the-counter cold medicines. Many retail products are packaged in blister packs, as well, and these typically feature a well-designed paperboard backing with clear thermoplastic attached to the paperboard. This allows the product to be displayed and the paperboard is designed to provide the company name, product name, bar codes and information about the product.

Clamshells are used for many different products. These are used to hold a wide variety of food products at grocery stores and specialty food stores, as well as to-go containers from restaurants. We also can seal the edges of a clamshell package and use that to protect just about any retail product, including tools, electronics and office supplies.

Often we will design packaging components using some type of thermoplastic foam. For instance, perhaps you are selling an electronic item with many different parts. You might have a sturdy cardboard outer container with various shapes and sizes of thermoplastic foam inside. This foam is highly protective, but also very lightweight and we can create thermoplastic foam using different types of packaging materials depending on your needs and budget.

Thermoplastics are an excellent option in general for packaging materials because they are lightweight, protective and can be designed to fit almost any product. For instance, we can create thermoplastic bottles to hold many different types of liquid. Different liquids require different types of thermoplastic packaging materials, and we have a variety of options including HIPS, ABS, PVC, PET, PETG, HDPE, OPS, and PP.

Of course, not everything we create involves packaging materials. We can design thermoplastic products as well. We can create a specialty product or perhaps an item such as a reusable food storage container. Plastic trays can be designed to hold office supplies or kitchen gear. We also can create any size or type of container that you might need.

We also provide more than just high-quality production and design. At Indepak, we also can help you with package fulfilment, with your inventory management and even with shipping your products or packaging. Let us know how we can help with your custom packaging or thermoplastic product needs.
