September 2, 2022 (press release) –

The UK-made foam profiles are exempt from the new plastic packaging tax. Antalis Packaging’s new green foam profiles offer the same exceptional quality as standard foam profiles, however, because they contain 100% recycled content, they are exempt from the Plastic Packaging Tax.

Foam profiles are an essential material when packaging delicate or sharp goods. Until now, the challenge has been to find profiles that are sustainable as well as effective. The new range of eco-friendly foam profiles from Antalis Packaging ticks all the boxes.

The foam, which comes in an attractive ocean green colour, is available in a wide range of profiles to provide corner and edge protection for many different applications. The flexible, shock-absorbent profiles mould around delicate edges to protect them from damage caused by knocks and drops. They are also dust and odour free to leave no residue on goods.

At the end of their use, the foam profiles are fully recyclable, further helping to minimise waste and environmental impact.

"We’re continually working with our suppliers to source and develop new products that will help our customers meet their sustainability goals. We’re delighted to add this great range of sustainable foam profiles to our portfolio – and it’s another product that is Plastic Packaging Tax-exempt, so it offers cost-saving benefits to customers, too." --Packaging Product Manager at Antalis, Ian Whitcombe
