Frequently Asked Questions
What is molded pulp? What is molded pulp made out of?
Sustainable Protective Packaging
Molded pulp is produced from fibrous materials such as recycled paper, cardboard or other natural fibers, and can be recycled again after its useful life-cycle. We are exploring next generation materials to use when developing our molded pulp products - such as agricultural waste!
Molded pulp is formed to shape so, unlike cardboard boxes, it does not start as a flat sheet. Instead, it is designed with round corners and complex three-dimensional shapes.
What are the types of molded pulp?
Materials of Molded Pulp
Molded pulp is available in a variety of materials and finishes.
Transfer Molded - The most common type of molded pulp used today. It is typically thin-walled (1/16" to 3/16" of an inch) with one side having a relatively smooth finish and the other side having a faily smooth surface. EcoEnclose molded pulp is transfer molded.
Thick-Wall - This type has a thickness of 1/16" to 1/4" and is typically used for support packaging application. The finish is rough on one side and moderatley smooth on the opposite side.
Thermoformed Fiber - This is the highest quality of thin-walled molded pulp. The end result is a well defined and smooth surface molded pulp, so these are typically used in instances when high definition and appearance are crucial to the customer experience.
Processed - This refers to molded pulp that has undergone some type of additional processing to the basic production, so it can apply to any of the first three molded pulp options described above. Processing can include printing, coating, die-cutting, or treating with colors.
Why choose molded pulp over other protective packaging solutions?
Benefits of Molded Pulp
If you are shipping fragile products that you want to ensure are not only protected but secure, molded pulp may be the solution for you. Other protective packaging such as packaging paper, bubble wrap, or paper shed, does a great job of protecting products in transit but doesn’t ensure the rigid and secure protection like molded pulp.
Is molded pulp recyclable?
How to Dispose of Molded Pulp
Molded pulp is produced from fibrous materials such as recycled paper, cardboard or other natural fibers. This means it is recyclable, naturally biodegradable, and compostable. We recommend recycling to ensure circularity. Learn more about our Sustainable Packaging Framework.
