3M has introduced Inflata-Pak, a new air cushion packaging that can save businesses time, space and money. The new packaging offers unparalleled protection when shipping fragile items. The results include fewer damaged goods that need to be replaced and less time spent processing insurance claims. When fully inflated, the inner pouch conforms to the shape of the object, while the outer pouch forms a protective air cushion -- effectively sealing the item in place. And because Inflata-Pak packaging stores flat, this product also takes up far less storage space than traditional packing materials.
