Sekisui Voltek Unveils New Consumer Foam Packaging Concepts

Lawrence, MA — October 28, 2014. — Sekisui Voltek will preview a new foam packaging product at the 2014 PACK EXPO International, Booth # 11016, November 2–5 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

“Starting in November, we will begin to preview samples of our new VolaraBLOCK foam product.” Neil Beckhusen, President of Sekisui Voltek states, “We are excited about the introduction of VolaraBLOCK and the opportunity this represents for our customers to get first-hand experience with the product’s high-quality cell structure.”

As the leader in the foam industry, Sekisui Voltek has expertise in bringing high quality products to market and working with the industry to identify new applications and build market segments. VolaraBLOCK comes to North America from Europe, where it was first introduced in 2008 as Alveobloc by Sekisui Voltek’s sister company, Sekisui Alveo.

VolaraBLOCK can replace standard packaging materials to deliver a more premium and aesthetically pleasing look and feel to a wide range of consumer products. Additionally it provides the ultimate protection for products from damage or marring.

“Now, our customers will have a new option to consider – one with a considerably higher quality cell structure that provides a new thickness level and a usable skin so you can start making parts with it right away.” said Neil Beckhusen, “Our new VolaraBLOCK foam is a win/win situation that all of us can be pleased about.”
