  • We offer crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) materials in a wide variety of sizes for customers to choose from. Customers have the flexibility to choose the best yielding size to maximize their profitability and minimize production scraps.
  • The Looping process allows us to create custom length rolls, which increases our customers’ production throughput and decreases material waste.
  • High precision heat laminators and pressure sensitive laminators are used to achieve better edge alignment, which translates to more usable materials and less material waste
  • Silao, Mexico warehouse incorporated our first skylight building to reduce energy consumption by utilizing nature light to illuminate the workspace. The rest of our warehouse buildings are planned to follow suit in the near future.
  • All WF warehouse buildings are equipped with motion sensor activated lights to reduce unnecessary energy waste.

Materials With Recycled Content


  • BEST material for returnable packaging. XLPE foam found in containers, totes, trays, and dunnage can withstand the rough handling of a typical logistics system. On average, returnable/reusable packaging using XLPE foam has a lifecycle of 5-7 years. This means there are no new packaging materials introduced in circulation during this lifespan
  • We offer multiple collection points to recycle scraps, trims, and end of life components
  • 30% recycled content XLPE in single stage materials available



  • EcoZote is made out of 30% recycled content
  • Proprietary foaming process that does not content chemical foaming agents
  • We offer multiple collection points to recycle scraps, trims, and end of life components
