Great Packaging Tips from Quick Pak Inc

Corrugated and Cost Effective Packaging Ideas.



Use a NEW corrugated box—NOT an old one. When you reuse a box, it becomes less durable.
Do not overfill a box. Overfilling will direct pressure to the walls of the box which could result in damage to both the box and your product. 
Many packers smash down paper or loose fill to close the box or fit more material inside. However, this compresses the material, making it less effective in protecting your products. More importantly, using excess packaging material means spending unnecessary money.

Do not under-fill a box. Under filling a box could result in possible damage to your product. Make sure the product you are shipping is secure. If it feels loose in the box, either add more packaging material or double check to ensure that you have correctly wrapped the product.

The 2-inch rule: In most cases, use at least 2 inches of packaging material around the product and be sure that the product is at least 2 inches from the walls of the box. This will help prevent both under filling and over filling, saving you time and money.

Properly close the box. This step is just as important as using proper cushioning. Try to stay away from tapes such as: masking, cellophane and duct. Use strong tape such as SellaTape pressure sensitive packaging tape. Two inches or more in width is recommended.


Effective packaging for your products. Different products require different methods of packaging. If you aren’t sure of the most effective way to package your products, Quick Pak Inc can help. 

We offer a custom pack design to any company who seeks our help—all at no cost to you.

Polyethylene Pricing Still Weak!

Polyethylene Pricing Still Weak!




Spot Polyethylene trading was busy; material availability was high and prices fell $.02/lb. Suppliers were out aggressively marketing their uncommitted inventories, eager to take a quick loss and restock with cheaper material. 

Processors picked away with just small orders as needed, confident that lower prices lay ahead. While some producers are still officially trying to implement their $.05/lb increase - which has consistently failed since Oct ..

Why Use Airflow Vented Pallet Stretch Wrap

Resin and Plastics Pricing Still Weak!

"resin markets activity increased as the week wore"

"General resin market sentiment was bearish given the overwhelmingly negative movement in world equity, energy and commodity markets."

"The Ethylene market was only lightly traded and prices were softer as the 2016 market got underway."

"Polyethylene trading began to heat up again as participants returned from vacations."

"Processors have had little fear that the 4th attempt at the $.05/lb increase would find any traction in Jan, and indeed, several producers already pushed the increase back to Feb."

"However, given the bearish state of the energy and feedstock markets and the huge discount that the Houston PE market holds to domestic prices, we do not think that a rollover will cut it again in Jan."

"In order to better reflect current Polyethylene market conditions and spot domestic railcar pricing, we feel that a contract decrease of $.03 -.05/lb is reasonable this month."
Trade News January 2016

"The $.05/lb price increase failed for the third time in December; however, considering sharply lower energy and feedstock costs, processors are seeking actual relief rather than just continued contract price rollovers. Although technically producers will begin the year with the nickel increase again on the table, perhaps contracts will begin to go the other way. In the meantime, the combination of year end inventory adjustments and weak international PE markets have generated deeply discounted spot buying opportunities."

The start of a new year means the beginning of another round of scheduled maintenance turnarounds in ethylene plants. Nearly one third of the 52 operational ethylene units located across North America are preparing for more than 660 days of planned down time during 2016. Additionally, an estimated 4.5 billion pounds of new ethylene capacity is scheduled to come online before the year ends. As such, 2016 is destined to be a busy year for this sector of the Chemical Industry.
