Cargoguard is a reusable packing system for load protection on a palette. The special feature of Cargoguard is the net consisting of electro-active polymers. The net foil expands by up to 380 % of its normal size under voltage. After covering the load with the net foil which has to be extended by a voltage input, the net foil simply has to be fixed by loops on the palette. After removing the energy, the net foil shrinks to its normal size, thereby stabilizing the load on the palette. This packing system also enables the load to be secured against theft by means of a security code which prevents the energy supply from being activated by the wrong device.
