ABL's Easy Guide to Void Fill

ABL's Easy Guide to Void Fill

Do You Use Void Fill When Packaging Your Products?

Do You Know What The Best Option Is For You?

Here Are Some Key Factors To Consider...

The Cost Of Your Product

Superior void products are more expensive. So the void product that you might use for a $5.00 product may differ from that of $250.00  product.

Product Presentation

Sometimes certified ‘eco-friendly’ void products may be a good choice or the case of cheap inexpensive goods, Styrofoam chips may suffice.

Void In Cartons

Your cartons should be strong enough to prevent crushing in transit. The amount of ‘void’ or ‘air gaps’ should be sufficient to allow some impact movement and cushioning but not too tight that the impact shocks cause damage. 

The Potential For Product Migration

Some products have good ‘interlock’ so that over the transport journey, products remain “encapsulated” and don’t shift to the  bottom of the carton where damage may happen.


Some void materials are not resilient, so when a sharp cut breaks “the seal”, the protective value of the material is less. For example “the bubble” deflates  and your product gets damaged.

Product Storage

Some void products require lots of space in your warehouse or may possibly attract vermin or insects.

Ease Of Dispensing

There are now many “automatic” dispensing systems available that offer savings in time, efficiency and space to medium to large volume  users.
