Unrivalled protection to products in transit
The Sealed Air range of Korrvu packaging is an innovative new form of transit / postal packaging. By using a non-slip film to either suspend or secure products within a traditional corrugated outer carton, it provides a practical alternative to foam void fill / inserts.
Besides the potential environmental benefits of eliminating foam or polystyrene, Korrvu’s suspension, retention and hybrid packaging products offer a wealth of additional advantages, including space savings through flat pack supply and reducing packaging inventory.
01: Key Benefits.
Advantages to your business of using Korrvu® packaging
With the explosion in ecommerce seeing many more products and items being sent via courier networks – and conservative estimates indicating there are at least 7 touch points during their journey – there is considerable potential for damage to occur. Korrvu can help with this, as well as providing a number of other benefits.

02: Product Protection.
Eliminate the need for foams and void fill packaging, whilst maintaining protection
Korrvu packaging is incredibly unique and represents one of the most advanced forms of corrugated protective packaging that you can source from GWP Packaging.
Korrvu packaging secures products using a traditional corrugated carton with an innovative elastomeric, non-slip film to hold each item in place whilst offering protective cushioning properties.
Besides this, Korrvu packaging offers an exceptionally versatile and re-usable method for storing and transporting items.
The versatility of this method ensures a wide range of products can be safely packaged, offering both cushioning protection during transit and effective product presentation.
03: How It Works.
How Korrvu® Packaging works
The Korrvu packaging is delivered flat packed to minimise storage space requirements.
For suspension packaging, the frame is assembled and placed into the box before the product is placed in the centre of the frame, suspending it in the centre of the container.
The top window is then placed over the product, meaning it is completely suspended between both films
For retention packaging, the product is slid into the non-slip film, before the packaging is folded, pulling the film taut to hold the product in place whilst creating a cushion below.
Hybrid packaging is a combination of the above. Arriving flat, the flaps are firstly folded upward to loosen the film (allowing for easy insertion of the product) The product is then inserted before the flaps are folded down to tighten the film around the item
The final step for all 3 types of Korrvu packaging is to place within and close the outer box, creating tension that holds the product securely in place.
04: Types of Korrvu® Packaging.
Options for differing packaging applications
There are 3 distinct types of Korrvu packaging, each with their own differing features and benefits.
Suspension packaging’s unique construction suspends the products or equipment to be transported between 2 layers of non-slip, highly resilient film, providing a consistent level of protection regardless of how delicate or fragile the items enclosed.
This ensures that there is always a “cushion” of air on all sides of the suspended product.
Retention Packaging protects its’ contents by bracing them within a traditional corrugated cardboard outer, using a special non-slip film and ingenious construction to ensure they do not move in transit.
By eradicating movement in transit, and keeping the product away from potential impact points on the outer carton, retention packaging offers a superb level of protection against mishandling and damage.
“Hybrid” packaging combines the best elements of both the retention packaging and suspension packaging solutions that are both available through GWP, suspending the product away from potential impact areas within the outer packaging, whilst also securing the item in place (as per the retention system).
The elastomeric film which the hybrid packaging uses is perfect for low profile items that benefit from surface protection as well as retention hold, and as it is transparent it also showcases the product contained within.
