Detailed Info on Corrispring foam alternative
It is a dilemma many businesses face. Protecting items in transit, or minimising environmental impact. One of the reasons this is seen as such a problem is due the negative reputation of foam inserts and polystyrene (amongst other forms of void fill packaging).
And whilst there are applications where foam packaging is either unavoidable or clearly the most suitable material, it can be possible to take advantage of corrugated cardboard cushioning in many instances.
With a growing demand for businesses to eliminate plastics and foams from their packaging, the unique Corrispring product was developed.
Effectively a piece of corrugated material that is folded to act as a spring (hence the name), the Corrispring inserts provide the cushioning protection that would traditionally have been provided by the foam or Polystyrene inserts.
Created from 100% recyclable corrugated material, it is the market leading protective cushioning system manufactured entirely from corrugated fibreboard. As a result, Corrispring is not only a much more environmentally friendly product than traditional foam cushion packaging, but also a lower cost option than the commonly used foam packaging materials.
Corrispring is supplied fully assembled and ready to use, making it suitable for an extensive range of applications including electronic goods, consumer goods and any item that requires protection during transit.
Saying that, GWP are uniquely placed to help your business make an informed decision on the best packaging insert for your requirement. This is because as well as supplying corrugated cushioning options (and other inserts such as fittings and dividers) you can also source foam based products which can in fact be more sustainable.
The bottom line is that your business can benefit from free, informed and impartial advice on what would be the best solution to your specific requirements.

What is Corrispring manufactured from?
Corrispring is manufactured from a durable, single wall corrugated cardboard. This allows the inserts to remain lightweight (helping with handling and transit costs), but also be robust enough to protect your items in transit. The specific material however will usually be tailored to your requirements, based on the product / application in which Corrispring will be used.
How does Corrispring work?
Corrispring is essentially a piece of cardboard material folded to act like a spring. Replacing traditional foam inserts, it protects products in two ways. Firstly, it helps to prevent movement of the items within the outer container. And if the outer carton is dropped or suffers an impact, the springs act to cushion the contents too.
Can Corrispring replace foam inserts?
There are many scenarios where Corrispring can be used as an alternative to foam inserts. However, there are a large number of factors that come into play when ascertaining which would be the most suitable insert to use. With 30 years’ experience, GWP will be happy to offer impartial advice on whether Corrispring will be suitable for your application.
Is Corrispring recyclable?
Corrispring, being manufactured from corrugated cardboard, is fully recyclable and biodegradable. However, it must also be noted that many of the foams used as packaging materials today are manufactured from Polyethylene, which is itself recyclable too.
