WaveGrip has launched another multi-packing innovation that provides enhanced hygiene protection for cans throughout the entire supply chain.

WaveSafe is the world’s first covered flexible multi-pack carrier for cans. In addition to the advanced WaveGrip carrier it features an additional layer of recyclable and photodegradable PE material, which covers the top of the cans. This provides protection from dust and debris, giving consumers peace of mind that the beverage has remained safe and hygienic from the factory to their hands.

Previously, manufacturers had looked to collation shrink to ensure the can’s hygiene. WaveSafe delivers this with reduced materials and expense and in particular does not obscure the primary can packaging. In addition, WaveSafe also offers a significant point of difference to brand owners. The new carrier style will stand out on-shelf and, with the ability to link with the range of WaveGrip Colors, ensures that branding is further enhanced, maximizing on-shelf impact and consumer appeal.

The many benefits and features of the standard WaveGrip Carriers also apply to WaveSafe, making it the most efficient collation carrier available for application as well as being environmentally sustainable. Compatible with all WaveGrip applicators, WaveSafe is accessible for all beverage manufacturers, from smaller artisanal producers to high volume operators.

“We are so pleased to be able to launch the first covered flexible carrier,” comments Aaron McIvor, Managing Director, WaveGrip. “This is a major opportunity for WaveGrip and reaffirms we are the innovator in the development of beverage multi-packing solutions.

“WaveSafe is lightweight and efficient to apply and being available in the complete range of WaveGrip Colors, means it will create a new point of intrigue to consumers as well as boasting functional and environmental benefits.”
