The Flextra® system for void-fill cushioning from Astro Valcour (Glens Falls, NY) uses rolls of recycled kraft paper with thousands of tiny incisions that stretch open when tension is applied, resulting in a three-dimensional honeycomb.
The honeycomb shape locks together making glue or tape un-necessary. Stores in a fraction of its original size gaining 26% in length and 10 times in height when pulled from its dispenser. Available in one two or three plies.
