Pack Expo 2004: Air-Paq inflatable packaging

PACK EXPO WEB EXCLUSIVE: Pactiv offers a look at its new Pactiv 9000 Air-Paq® engineered inflatable packaging at its booth, S-2342, at Pack Expo International 2004. Air-Paq is a durable, resilient, and efficient packaging solution available in 2- and 3-dimensional shapes. Design features a series of adjoining air tubes that are securely inflated to cushion and protect lightweight products during shipment. The tubes are connected via a series of patented one-way valves. If one chamber is punctured, the others remain inflated. Product is loaded into a deflated package. The Air-Paq is then inflated through an external valve. Air travels through a sequence of air chambers. The package can then be loaded into a carton for shipping.
