Plastic cap sheets offer numerous benefits compared to their fiber counterparts. Plastic cap sheets are more durable, making them ideal for products that require extra protection during transit. They are made from strong, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material that can withstand rough handling, moisture, and extreme temperatures. In contrast, fiber cap sheets are made from cardboard or paper, which are less durable and susceptible to moisture damage.
Plastic cap sheets provide better protection against dirt and dust. They are designed to fit snugly over the top and sides of your products, forming a protective barrier that prevents the entry of contaminants. This is particularly useful when shipping products that are sensitive to dust, such as electronics or pharmaceuticals.
Plastic cap sheets are the most cost-effective option long term. While they may be more expensive than fiber cap sheets upfront, they can be reused multiple times, saving you money over time. Additionally, their durability means that they are less likely to cause damage to your products during transit, which can result in costly returns or refunds.
Cap sheets typically come in rectangular or square shapes and are available in a range of sizes to accommodate different product dimensions. Common dimensions for rectangular cap sheets are 48 inches by 40 inches (US and Canada), and 1200 mm by 1000 mm (Europe and Asia), while square cap sheets are typically 48 inches by 48 inches (US and Canada) and 1200 mm by 1200 mm (Europe and Asia). Repsco can provide custom sizes to meet any shipping need.
