- polystyrene (EPS),
EPS – Expanded Polystyrene
EPS is a durable closed-cell foam material, which gives it strength and dexterity. It can be manufactured in nearly unlimited shapes and sizes with a broad range of physical properties. Its resistance to moisture, aqueous chemicals, adhesives, fungus and bacteria make EPS ideal for most applications. EPS is also an excellent insulator and is used in a wide variety of cold chain packaging solutions for food, beverage and medical shipments.
- polypropylene (EPP),
EPP - Expanded Polypropylene
Expanded polypropylene is utilized in a wide variety of custom molds and packaging. EPP beads produce tough low-density closed-cell foam with excellent energy absorption characteristics. The material has excellent recoverability, second only to EPE from repeated shocks and deformations. Foams molded from these beads also retain their high degree of dimensional stability when exposed to temperature extremes.
- polyethylene (EPE),
EPE - Expanded Polyethylene
EPE material characteristics include exceptional elasticity, impact strength and excellent chemical resistance. EPE is often used in protective packaging applications, especially when transporting high-value, fragile products such as consumer electronics. Other applications include solvent-resistant packaging.
- Arcel™, and
ARCEL™ is a polyethylene/polystyrene copolymer that offers excellent durability for reusable foam products and components. This material offers excellent impact performance, compares to EPS in creep-resistance for long-term stacking applications and is also resistant to many solvents. ARCEL™ resins can reduce package size significantly, leading to lower fuel costs and various environmental benefits.
- and cross- linked polyethylene (XLPE).
XLPE – Cross Linked Polyethylene
A preferred material for custom dunnage and material handling solutions, XLPE offers Class-A surface projection and due to its micro-cellular structure, XLPE does not absorb water, oil and dust.
Huntington Solutions prides ourselves on having the most efficient and quality-focused operations in the industry. We continually invest in the most advanced manufacturing technologies and quality management systems with certifications to the latest Quality and Environmental standards including ISO 9001, IATF 16949 and ISO 14001. The company is headquartered in Greer, SC and currently operates five plants in North America.
