A white and blue Ensulate product corrugated container.

Ensulate® trays and boxes replace containers that have wax impregnation or wax curtain coat and offer improved environmental and economic benefits over traditional wax coated boxes. Multiple Ensulate board structures are available for products that are packed or distributed in wet or cold-humid environments and trays and boxes made from our Ensulate coating are fully recyclable. In many cases, recyclers will pay retailers to pick up Ensulate materials along with other OCC rather than retailers paying disposal companies to landfill waxed containers.

Ensulate is ideal for:

  • Produce, including beans, berries, cabbage, cucumbers, lettuce, melons, spinach, and tropical fruit
  • Poultry and meat
  • Fresh and frozen packaging solutions
  • Bakery, including bake-in solutions and cake pads
  • Nuts (pecans, almonds, etc) and cheese
  • Paper protection, bag-in-a-box, and floral
  • Manufacturing, packaging, slip sheets, tier sheets
  • Appliances, plastic components, glass, mirrors, wood, metal, furniture, and electronic components
  • Packaging that must retain a level of brightness post-waxing
  • Protecting ferrous or non-ferrous products
  • Display, general packaging, flood coating, glossy and matte finishes available

Ensulate liners and medium:

  • Are available in several protective treatments and in multiple board weights
  • Allows for high end graphic branding and printing and seals tight with either hot melt or cold set adhesives
  • Containers can be supplied from any WestRock manufacturing plant.
  • Meet FDA and USDA requirements for food packaging and is certified recyclable by the Fibre Box Association (FBA).
