We Serve the Following Industries:
Custom Packaging & Products
Green packaging is in high demand as manufacturers are utilizing sustainable resources to produce environmentally friendly packaging to market their products. MPE has the capability to design and engineer molded pulp for most industries. It’s sleek, thin-walled, compostable and biodegradable. Along with packaging, MPE designs and engineerings specialized, custom molded pulp products for a variety of industries. Molded pulp has the advantage of being bio-degradable, so it is an attractive alternative to less sustainable materials like plastic.
Thermoformed molded pulp is an ideal application for the medical industry. Our Safetex line is manufactured in an FDA approved factory using a heating process that heats the fibers to over 150C allowing the tray to be safe for clinical environments. As a single-use packaging source, companies are finding molded pulp to be a resource for packaging instruments for the surgical setting that is biodegradable making it an eco-friendly product. Utilizing pulp in the clinical setting also limits the spread of germs due to its single-cycle ability.
It just makes sense to package and protect electronic equipment in thermoformed molded pulp. The virgin fibers we manufacture with are longer, stronger and without particulate which can be found in pulp made from tree fiber. Just knowing that once you remove the product that the packaging is biodegradable is virtuous.
Food & Beverage Industry
Molded Pulp products for the food and beverage industry are being utilized across the globe. With the technology to coat these products with a bioplastic laminate, the products keep their integrity of being able to remain biodegradable and compostable. With a coating, the container can withstand high temperatures, be safe in the oven, microwave and freezer and can create an oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water barrier.
Sustainable, biodegradable and compostable tableware products are now offered by MPE. What makes our products special – we offer PLA Laminated tableware that can withstand oven temperatures up to 420F, microwavable and can hold hot and cold liquids without leaking.
No matter the industry, our process at Molded Pulp Engineering uses the cure-in-mold technology to produce the highest quality, most well-defined, smooth surface, thin walled fiber package available today.
