Xpander Pak: Protective shipper
Testing by a mail-order pharmaceutical house showed that Xpander Pak's (Glen Allen, VA) Super Protective Shippers Rx version beats conventional packaging in cold retention.
A blown coextrusion of 3-mil PE-EVA film encases vacuum-compressed urethane foam. When the outer packaging is punctured the vacuum is released and the bag expands to form around the contents. The packages can be custom-printed in up to 6 colors.
