PPI's Food Safety Pads Are Thinner, Lighter, and More Absorbent

Paper Pak Industries' UltraZap® absorbent food safety pads are the smarter, greener choice for food processors, grocery retailers, and distributors.

UltraZap pads are more absorbent than the leading competitive pad - gram-for-gram, our pads absorb more while using fewer raw materials. Plus, PPI's recycled cellulose pad is thinner and lighter, which provides significant operational efficiencies for our customers.

Highlighted below are the results of our side-by-side comparison to the leading competitive absorbent food pad:

PPI's UltraZap-40 food safety pads weigh 12.4% less than the like competitive product.

PPI's UltraZap-50 food safety pads weigh 17.7% less than the like competitive product.

PPI's UltraZap-40 food safety pads absorb 17.2% more than the like competitive product.

PPI's UltraZap-50 food safety pads absorb 23.8% more than the like competitive product.

Paper Pak Industries' UltraZap absorbent food safety pads are thinner, weigh less, yet absorb more than the like competitive products. And the performance of UltraZap absorbent food safety pads are more consistent than the like competitive product.

The difference is PPI's highly absorbent cellulose core, manufactured with earth friendly recycled fiber.

PPI's cellulose core offers a distinct advantage versus fluff tissue, as cellulose both absorbs and adsorbs fluids.

Similar to a blade of grass that retains water on the outside due to surface tension, PPI's cellulose core adsorbs fluids via surface tension and absorbs fluids due to wicking by the cellulose fibers.
