Pactiv Launches New Corner Keeper(TM) Protectors



Lake Forest, II1.-December 7. 2001-Corner Keeper protectors are being launched by Pactiv Corporation (NYSE: PTV) to protect and cushion products from damage.

Corner Keeper protectors are made from extruded polyethylene foam that is designed to provide improved protection at a competitive cost to alternative products. The polyethylene construction creates a non-abrasive surface and the ability to protect under multiple impacts.

Corner Keeper protectors are fabricated from Pactiv's ProFlex® Profiles closed-cell polyethylene foam extrusions. The cylindrical profile is pneumatically cut to produce a shape that mimics a three-dimensional, ninety-degree angle. This enables Corner Keeper protectors to fit around the multi-planed edge of a cube shape product (i.e. furniture). The outer surfaces also mimic the same ninety-degree angle. This creates a snug fit between the edge protector and the inside of a corrugated shipper.

The edge protectors begin as either a 3- or 4-inch white cylinder. The 3- inch cylinder is cut into thicknesses of either 1/2- or 3/4-inch. The 4-inch is fabricated into 1- or 1-1/2-inch thicknesses. The extruded polyethylene foam has a density of 1.8 pounds. The resiliency characteristics associated with that density enable Corner Keeper protectors to absorb multiple impacts-a desirable feature to enhance cushioning properties.

Corner Keeper protectors are ideal for a variety of applications including products and markets such as: furniture, case goods, appliances, electronics, automotive, glass, housewares, lighting, metals. etc.
