Materials

At RADVA, we use the optimal material for the end use. As one of the first molders of EPS packaging, our 50+ years of experience enable us to craft the perfect shape or packaging from our materials. We are also one of the early adopters and promoters of Arcel®, a high-performance material used for packaging and shipping of the most fragile components.
