Environmental Void Fill and Cushion Packaging

Top fill applications

To prevent the carton crushing when stacked and causing damage to the products inside, any space between the product and the top of the carton needs to be filled. We refer to this as top filling.

Our section below will help you determine which Opus Bio or Opus Air Tech cushion will give you the best top fill for your application.


Opus Bio 200mm x 100mm/ 8" x 4"

Our smallest cushion is used for smaller top fill applications. It forms a rigit barrier between the product and the top of the carton, and prevents crushing of the carton during stacking. The size of the cushion makes it ideal for the small voids often found in top fill applications. This cushion is available in standard and super strength material making it suitable for both high and low impact applications.

Examples: Audio equipment, Mobile phones, Pharmaceuticals, Perfumes, Online product distribution (DVD's), Toys.
