Using Bubble Wrap As Packing Materials

Postby Grahamson » Tue May 07, 2013 1:00 am

Bubble wrap is one of today’s most popular packing materials. It provides excellent protection for shipping or storing fragile, breakable goods. And many find it fun popping its bubbles when they're done with it.
Bubble wrap is an accidental discovery by two engineers, Alfred Fielding and Marc Chavannes, in 1957 that revolutionized the packaging industry. It is polyethylene resin or transparent plastic film. It uses evenly distributed air cushions, in the form of air bubbles trapped between two films of clear plastic to offer shock and vibration protection during transport. The bubbles vary in size depending on the size and fragility of the item. Generally, small bubble wrap is used for small items like electronics and glassware, while large bubble wrap is used for larger items like furniture.
This type of packaging material is inexpensive and offers several advantages. Because it provides good protection, less packing material is needed, which lowers overall costs.Bubble wrap is also reusable and recyclable. Environmentally friendly biodegradable wrap is now available on the market as well.
