Project Description

This innovative packaging system was originally designed by Grifal for UPS in order to safely ship bottles of fine extra virgin olive oil. It has the capacity for two 1-liter bottles or three half-liter bottles.

The outer box is a double-layer corrugated cardboard which has been lined with a thick layer of Mondaplen. Inside the box there are 2 aluminum-clad thermal sacks lined with Mondaplen, each supplied with its own tamper-proof sealing tape. This solution has been tested and has passed the ISTA 1A and ISTA 3A certifications. The Mondaplen Thermal box is able to protect its contents from both high and low temperatures. In the specific case of oils for human consumption, this packaging has been proven to conserve the organoleptic properties of the oil for 10-12 hours longer than previously used solutions.

Mondaplen® is a new lamination process that creates an innovative waved material with outstanding cushioning performances, due to its specific and “designed” shapes.
This particular product also provides better insulation performances as well as an effective reduction of weight and use of raw materials, without losing the cushioning performance required.
Thanks to Mondaplen®’s structure, analogous to that of corrugated cardboard, yields a lighter product that shares the same characteristics with materials that have a similar thickness.
 
In some applications its performance are superior to those of traditional materials.
In case of PE foam, Mondaplen® shows off its many advantages, maintaining it’s flexibility, softness and protective qualities across all thicknesses, while being easier to handle due to its relative lightness. Mondaplen® can be produced in two different
versions, the open wave and the covered wave.
The open wave basic composition and structure consists of a flat layer of material to which a second waved layer is heat-welded. The covered wave is simply the open wave with an additional flat layer heat-welded to the top of the waved layer.
The innovation of this revolutionary technology is not limited to technical features. Mondaplen® is also highly innovative thanks to its design. Whether in open or covered version, its highly appealing waved structure draws positive attention and helps to differentiate itself in the marketplace.
Mondaplen® is available in two formats: sheets and rolls.
