StealthWrap™

Posted by Sealed Air Corporation (booth # S1941)

Summary of Innovation

Sealed Air’s StealthWrap solution is an opaque flexible parceling film that seals and protects packages during transit and removes the need for outer boxes and additional packaging materials. Enabled by Sealed Air automation systems, StealthWrap film shrinks and conforms to the dimensions of an item’s primary packaging material at speeds of up to 20 packs per minute versus using traditional corrugated boxes that require up to 60 seconds to assemble, pack and tape.

Once in place, StealthWrap film provides a damage-resistant covering that obscures any markings or identification on the primary packaging. Its ability to eliminate outer shipping cartons and thus keep packages smaller not only lowers freight costs but also offers sustainability benefits such as delivering a 90 percent reduction in packaging weight as compared to corrugated boxes.

Innovation Statement

StealthWrap is a 29-microlayer irradiated polyolefin material. The solution was developed using a patented micro-layering technology with nano-additives that creates opacity of up to 99.9%. The opacity provides concealment and pilferage resistance during e-commerce deliveries.

Applicability

StealthWrap simplifies supply chain logistics by optimizing billable weight, improving fulfillment velocity, enabling space savings and supporting sustainability initiatives.
