HexcelPack will showcase its sustainable, cushioning void fill solution for the e-commerce market at Pack Expo 2022, Booth W-21029, October 23-26 in Chicago.

The HexcelPack HexaFil™ 100% paper-based void fill solution provides superior block and bracing and additional cushioning in the box vs. traditional paper and plastic-based void fill options. Available with either automatic or manual dispensing units to accommodate various shipping speeds, HexaFil™ delivers void fill combined with sustainability benefits, including being curbside recyclable and fully biodegradable.

The HexaFil™ void fill solution utilizes three-dimensional hexagon design and proprietary slit paper technology. This method makes the paper “flex,” expanding its volume while maximizing the strength and stiffness of its fibers. When HexaFil™ is dispensed either automatically or manually, it spirals like a helix. This creates the bulk required for effective void fill, ensuring packed items will be nestled in a stable position and therefore less likely to shift during transport.

HexaFil Manual StationHexaFil Manual StationAutoHexaFil™ is fully automatic dispensing solution for HexaFil™. The machine uses a bladeless cutting technique to dispense the sustainable void fill material into corrugated shippers up to three times faster than alternatives. Fully automatic with a programmable screen and electric operation via foot pedal, the machine quickly dispenses HexaFil™ in preset lengths with no cutting blades or dangerous components needed. The AutoHexaFil™ stands 6½-ft tall, and is adjustable in height to fit over packaging conveyor systems. The unit also has wheels for easy maneuvering. 

When speed is less of a factor, or in applications with lower shipping volume and space and technician constraints, Manual HexaFil™ is an ideal solution. The manual dispenser can be conveniently set next to a small packing table with the HexaFil™ easily dispensed from the roll by hand.

At the show, HexcelPack will allow visitors to demo both dispensing solutions.

Additional benefits of HexaFil™ include:


·      Unsurpassed Product Protection: With Ultra Stretch™ technology, HexaFil™ offers superior block and bracing, cushioning and product protection needed for shipping fragile items and reduces product damage. Economical yet effective, the interlocking material ensures limited movement during transport.  When combined with HexcelWrap™, it provides an anti-migration and fully cushioned package.


·       Sustainability: Completely paper-based, HexaFil™ is made of 100% Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Canadian Paper for exemplary sustainability and little to no impact on the environment – all while delivering protection proven to outperform plastic packaging alternatives. Unlike single-use plastic bubble, the paper used to produce HexaFil™ is fully curbside recyclable and biodegradable.


·       Cost Savings: AutoHexaFil™ is as impactful on the bottom line as it is the environment. Retailers can increase shipping efficiencies and reduce labor costs by upgrading to an automated void fill machine versus a manual station. In most instances, the operation can reduce the amount of void fill used.
