Let’s Chill with HammerSHIELD

Insulating cold foods from the outside in with foam labels



What is HammerSHIELD

In the 1980’s, plasti-shield was on the rise for its ability to protect people when interacting with microwaved containers. At Hammer Packaging, we never settle and that is why we created our very own version of the oriented polystyrene foam substrate that can be used to keep food and beverages hot or cold.

We have converted foam labels in both shrink sleeve and pressure sensitive label applications.

Why use foam labels

Using foam to insulate products can prevent the need to add unnatural product stabilizers. Having a reliable packaging solution like this allows companies to prioritize the shift toward clean ingredient labels. With the rise of the farm-to-table movement, consumers demand to know more about what goes in their foods. By eliminating chemically created stabilizers, brands can achieve a more natural and transparent identity.

The foam substrate has thermal barriers which act as an additional layer between the consumer and the product, keeping the product cold longer—a key benefit for transportation and quality at consumption.
