Scotch Brand has rolled-out its latest packaging innovation made from 100% recycled paper, Scotch Cushion Lock Protective Wrap. A sustainable alternative to plastic cushion wrap, Cushion Lock is an expanding paper wrap that offers nested protection to immobilise packaged items while on the move, no matter how bumpy the transit process may be.
Proven to protect, this innovative wrap expands by up to 60 times its original volume to fill packing boxes efficiently and effectively, eliminating the need for additional packing supplies typically required to secure and stabilise contents. Upon arrival at its destination, Cushion Lock can be easily recycled in a kerbside recycling bin.
Cushion Lock easily tears by hand and its advanced self-locking technology readily fastens to itself, no scissors or tape needed to cut and secure. Simply pull Cushion Lock from the roll to expand it, wrap it around the item in a 360-degree fashion, tear the paper off the roll by hand, and place the wrapped item into box for nested and protected shipping, moving or storage.
Cushion Lock stores flat on the roll, using up to 80% less storage space compared to traditional plastic cushion wrap. In addition, each 1,000-foot roll of Cushion Lock offsets up to nine pounds of plastic compared to traditional cushion wrap solutions, making the product well-positioned to help 3M reach its goal of reducing dependence on virgin fossil-based plastic by 125 million pounds by 2025.
