Padding materials ensure that the contents of your parcel do not move. Fragile objects should be placed in the centre of the packaging, therefore guaranteeing that they will not come into contact with corners or walls of the parcel, always remaining protected on all sides. Separate products from each other with a minimum of 5 cm of suitable material. If you are packaging several items, wrap each individually.
Use cushioning material between items to ensure that they do not come into contact with each other or the sides of the box, and that there is no movement within the parcel. Below you will find a few examples:
- A system of flexible foam composed of polyethylene, polypropylene or polyurethane. This foam is made specifically to adapt to the dimensions of the product.
- The packaging-foam system is composed of a mix of chemical products which expand and form a protective cushion around the contents.
- The double-box system is an effective system for protecting fragile items when the original packaging is not suitable for shipments made by a carrier who relies on manual and automatic distribution systems.
- Use bubble wrap with small 1/4-inch (0.64 cm) bubbles. Use several layers to ensure that all material is properly protected, and pay particular attention to corners and edges.
- Do not use pieces of fabric or rags.
