3M's New Packaging Innovation Could Revolutionise Sneaker Shipping
The Minnesota-based materials company looks to do away with oversized boxes and space-taking protective materials via Flex & Seal, a wrap-like packaging solution. Created to reduce packing times, excess materials, and the space needed to ship packages, the unique roll is made out of three layers of different 3M-developed plastics.
An internal adhesive layer sticks to itself to create a snug covering over your sneakers (or any other similar-sized goods), while a middle cushioning layer acts like bubble wrap for added protection. Last but not least, a tougher outside layer is tear- and water-resistant for even more peace of mind.
