Bicell

GWP now offer the leading Bicell sheet material (alongside Correx®) for enhanced choice and performance

GWP are one of the few organisations within the UK to stock and utilise the new Bicell material. Consisting of a core layer with outer laminates, the unique benefits of this material are the additional properties the laminate offers (particularly a cushioned or anti scuff surface).

 

Keeping a range of sheets, sizes and finishes in stock, you can source this material on short lead times and prices comparable to the Correx® sheet equivalents. Custom versions are also available on request.

Bicell Applications

Due to the many properties of the Bicell material, it is suitable for an almost limitless range of applications and industries. Our primary use at GWP, of course, is the fabrication of re-usable and multi trip packaging. Its rigidity and hardwearing nature mean that it is perfect for creating totes, storage bins, divider sets, layer pads and a wide range of other dunnage.

 

However, the addition of insulating film, soft textile laminates and the use of colours and pre-printed films also makes it suitable for promotional packaging, POS displays and even trade shows. It is also ideal for creating sleeves and can be used for transporting food produce too.

 

It is so versatile that it can even be used for lining the loading areas of vans and vehicles!

What is Bicell?

Bicell consists of 3 layers which are joined together in a unique cellular structure to create a sheet material which uniquely is equally rigid in both dimensions. The surfaces can also be over-laminated to provide additional properties and performance benefits.

 

By laminating the Bicell material, a number of other benefits can be achieved.

 

The most common of these is the use of textiles, with various non-woven or spun-bound fabrics being used on one or both of the outer surfaces. Known as “anti scuff”, the fabric covering ensures that any items with highly polished, painted or decorated surfaces will not be damaged, scuffed or scratched during storage or transit.

 

Foam laminated board, also known as Cushioning Bicell, provides both anti abrasive properties for the surface of items stored or transported, but also provides an additional layer of protection against shock, impact and vibration.

Whilst we do not hold stock, we are also able to source Bicell that has had anti-slip coating added, VCI laminates that prevent the oxidisation of any metal components packaged within, plus insulating films that allow packaged goods to maintain a specific temperature for a prolonged period of time (particularly useful with packaging food and perishable items).

 

Both flame retardant and conductive properties are another set of characteristics that can easily be added during the production process.
