Leveraging cutting-edge materials science, 3M proudly introduces a groundbreaking innovation poised to revolutionize the global packaging and shipping landscape across all industries. 

Introducing the world's first padded, paper-based curbside recyclable mailer material, businesses can now streamline their packaging processes while prioritizing sustainability. 

Dubbed 3M™ Padded Automatable Curbside Recyclable (PACR) Mailer Material, this pioneering solution enables businesses to automate their packaging process, generating packages up to three times faster than manual packing when coupled with qualified automated packaging machines.

Crafted from a single layer of lightweight yet resilient kraft paper, this innovative mailer material boasts exceptional durability and moisture resistance. Enhanced with proprietary padding technology, it provides robust protection against drops, bursts, vibration, and other shipping hazards.

Designed specifically for use with qualified automated packaging machines, the material offers heat-seal capabilities with potential dwell times under one second, facilitating swift and efficient operations. Versatile and adaptable, it is compatible with various printing technologies and is available in a range of sizes to accommodate diverse packaging needs.

With a longstanding legacy of excellence in packing and shipping solutions, 3M continues to drive innovation forward. Building on its commitment to sustainability, the company previously introduced Scotch™ Cushion Lock™ Protective Wrap in 2022, offering businesses a sustainable alternative to plastic wrap.
