AirShock packs are made from 75 micron LDPE material for toughness and rigidity. They are 98% air once inflated, making them very light and ideal for courier and air freight shipping. No additional void filler is required when used with our boxes.
Our AirShock sleeves are recyclable, but may not be accepted for recycling programs in your area. Check with your local collection service to see if they are accepting LDPE plastic items for recycling. Only about 5% of number 4 plastics that are produced are then recycled. Be a part of the 5%!
Our Air Shock sleeves can withstand temperatures of 80° Celsius/176° Fahrenheit, making them safe to ship in any and all climates or with temperature-controlled products such as wine and beer. If you are interested in keeping your product temperature-controlled when shipping, reach out to our team.
High Quality Construction
Our cardboard boxes are sized specifically to fit inflated AirShock packaging. They are manufactured to the new 32 ECT (Edge Crush Test) standard, measuring the performance of stacked boxes through the compressive strength of the board’s peak load.
Meets Industry Testing Standards
Our robust AirShock sleeves meet the following standards:
ISO: ISO 2206:1987 (Complete, filled transport packages parts tested)
JIS: JIS z 0201:1989
TC: ISO/TC 122/SC 3
Perfect For Alcohol Delivery

Other Product Specifications
What are AirShock cardboard boxes made of?
Our boxes are developed with single wall C flute corrugated box construction and adhesive is general hot meld, synthetic rubber based.
All box materials are recyclable and the boxes are constructed of partially recycled material.
How much weight do AirShock cardboard boxes support?
Our boxes support a maximum box weight of 30 lbs (twelve filled glass bottles weigh approximately 24 lbs).
Environmental Quality departments usually align a 32 ECT standard on single wall corrugated board to 200# on the older Bursting Test scale, and a maximum suggested loading limit per carton of 65 lbs, significantly higher than the twelve bottle gross weight.
Do AirShock boxes pass the Edge Crush Test?
Our cardboard boxes are manufactured to the new 32 ECT (Edge Crush Test) standard, measuring the performance of stacked boxes through the compressive strength of the board’s peak load.
Using ECT rated corrugation provides equivalent strength to the previous scale, but with fewer raw materials, lower energy requirements, and reduced pollution. The lighter material weight also minimizes shipping costs.
Will shipping certain liquids in AirShock sleeves be problematic?
LDPE typically demonstrates excellent resilience to acids and alcohols, with no resulting chemical reaction.
Are AirShock sleeves transparent or opaque?
The plastic in AirShock sleeves is produced with a transparent finish, enabling customers to see a hint of the bottle, label and liquid colors inside.
