What is sealed edge packaging?
Sealed edge packaging is a revolutionary new means of creating a sterile, and insulted pack which can be used across numerous industries.
Tri-packs patented technology sealed the two fluted ends of corrugated plastic, also known as Correx, which is made from polypropylene. The sealed edge works as a barrier to the external elements.
The benefits of sealing the edges of corrugated plastic:
- Traps the air inside creating a thermal barrier
- Strengthens the finished product
- Makes it imperishable to dust or dirt
- Adds to its 100% waterproof properties
- Keeps the product inside cooler and fresher for longer

Why is sealed edge better?
When sealing the edges of corrugated packaging, it becomes a more robust material. Trapping the air inside the two fluted edges helps to strengthen the overall pack and is the brainchild behind our successful range of stacker boxes which will not bend or break under the weight of others.
Sealed edge also ensures that no dirt, dust or debris can enter the fluted edges of corrugated packaging. Once this area is contaminated with any form of the foreign body it becomes useless for sterile environments such as pharmaceuticals and the food industry. It also makes the pack harder to recycle as it is difficult to clean in between the individual flutes.
