Molded Fiber Products

100% Recycled & Recyclable Packaging

UFP Technologies specializes in designing and manufacturing environmentally friendly packaging solutions made from 100% recycled molded pulp / molded fiber material.  Whether you are looking at traditional molded pulp interior protective packaging or our specialty retail packaging with high aesthetic appeal that conveys a “sustainable” cachet, we can fulfill your needs. 

UFP Technologies uses proprietary equipment that is able to manufacture deep draw designs with steeper draft angles than typical molded pulp manufacturers. This technology along with our extensive design experience allows us to create packaging solutions that can replace expanded polystyrene (EPS) and other materials that are less friendly to the environment.

As a material and a process, molded fiber is an excellent protective packaging medium. The inherent flexibility of molded pulp offers substantial cushioning qualities and the "geometry" that we incorporate into each design lends strength to each part. With our proprietary manufacturing processes and experienced engineers, we design your packaging to be sturdy and effective.

UFP Technologies’ packaging can be tested in-house as well as at independent ISTA certified packaging laboratories.

Common Applications

Unlike most molded pulp / molded fiber manufacturers, UFP Technologies is not limited to the production of standard end caps, trays, and box inserts.  Innovative “after-pressing” capabilities allow us to create retail friendly packaging options like folding cartons and clamshells.

 

Clamshells

Many packaging designers don’t give a lot of consideration to molded pulp when looking for a clamshell or other type of enclosed retail packaging container, but hinged molded pulp containers have been used for decades as egg cartons.

End Caps

Designed properly, molded pulp end caps can provide the shock and vibration resistance required for many packaging applications.
