Loose fill chips provide you with an all-round protective solution and are ideal for void filling. They are extremely durable and will fill the space and gaps around any product. The protective chips are designed to mould around products, offering instant protection and are designed to minimise damage from shock, vibration and the movement of goods in the box. We offer an eco and premium range. Loose fill chips can also be known as packing peanuts.
EcoFlo is a leading environmentally friendly void fill packaging material. Supplied in 15 cubic ft. and 3 cubic ft. bags this is a maize-based starch void fill. Available in white, cylindrical in shape, this material is used as a protective packaging product. Our eco-friendly voidfill provides an excellent ‘in-the-box’ packaging solution for protecting a wide range of products.
What makes EcoFlo voidfill friendly to the environment?
Manufactured from starch material, EcoFlo is a fully compostable voidfill material and is 100% biodegradable. The product is fully soluble when saturated with water which takes away this issue of litter. It also conforms to EN13432.
The manufacturing process for our voidfill material is a single stage process (compared with the manufacturing process for the polystyrene version, which is multi-stage, uses more energy so is less environmentally friendly).
Starch is also an annually renewable resource.
Does this product perform well compared to other types of voidfill?
EcoFlo voidfill has been independently tested by 2 universities (Brunel and Humberside) and has been proven to provide better impact protection than other, polystyrene, versions.

Once your item is placed into a box, our void fill chips can be poured into the box until they fill all the remaining space around your valuable product. The result is that your item will be held firmly in place, will not move around when the box is handled or transported and therefore will not be susceptible to damage. The cushioning nature of voidfill packing chips means they will absorb any impact, should the box be dropped, before the shock reaches the item inside and causes any damage.
