New Punch&Pull™ Packaging Improves Usability and Sustainability
August 2, 2011
Uponor recently created a new packaging design for its crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing coils to offer a more user-friendly product for customers as well as honor the company’s sustainability goals, which include reducing packaging waste. The new design shrink-wraps a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) film around a coil of tubing and adds a circular perforation in the center of the coil. Users simply punch through the perforation and pull the required amount of PEX tubing for the job. When finished, users simply tuck the tubing end back into the center of the coil and transport the coil to the next job. The new packaging design will cover PEX tubing coils for Uponor AquaPEX® and Wirsbo hePEX™ products, ranging in size from 5/16" to 1" in 100-foot, 250-foot, 300-foot, 400-foot, 500-foot and 1,000-foot coils.
