Supporting Lightweight, Cost-Effective Retail Packaging
DuPont retail packaging solutions can help improve a product’s shelf appeal, reduce material usage, and add to the bottom line.
DuPont retail packaging materials contribute to cost savings by preventing theft and damage, by indicating tamperage, and by reducing transportation costs. They help drive purchase by allowing the consumer to see and “feel” the product before buying it.
By switching from blisters or clamshells to skin or stretch packaging made from DuPont materials, retailers and manufacturers reduce plastic usage and decrease product weight. This in turn may reduce shipping costs and may increase energy efficiency in getting goods to market.
DuPont retail packaging innovations also include tamper-resistance products to help prevent in-store damage or theft and materials that help preserve product appearance and prevent damage during shipment.
