Globally unique material innovation
At the FachPack fair Schumacher Packaging presents its patented CargoProfil® product line.
CargoProfil® is manufactured from environmentally-friendly paper section, an extremely sturdy hollow section made from rolled corrugated base paper. This innovative material is obtained from the side runs of a paper machine and is fully recyclable.. Added to that, the mono-material used contains only about 2% corn starch-based adhesive as normally used for corrugated board.
The cover frame CargoProtop® provides a sturdy and secure way of packing loads onto transport pallets. Compared to conventional chipboard, CargoProtop® is lighter, but at the same time it is sturdier and tougher. It is light in weight and has rounded edges which greatly facilitates handling and makes it ideal for strapping.
CargoPropal® is a transport pallet made from paper section which is just as heavy-duty and sturdy as the wooden pallets commonly used until now. Whereas a conventional euro pallet weighs 28 kg, the new paper-based pallet weighs in at a mere 7 kg. This weight-saving not only reduces transportation costs and CO2 emissions, it also makes handling so much easier for logistics personnel. The smooth surfaces and impact-absorbing edges also minimise the risk of injury during loading. CargoPropal® is especially suitable for transporting foodstuffs that use a single trip packaging system.. Compliance with hygiene regulations is assured with this newly-developed material because – unlike wood – CargoProfil® requires no pre-treatment and is totally hygienic.
