Bubble Wrap Packaging, also known as Bubble Roll or Bubble Pack, is an impact packaging solution to ensure that fragile products are kept damage-free from impact during transportation. Easy to use with little to no training required, the Bubble Roll is a cost-effective and reusable tool wrapped around the product with the air-filled bubble pack facing the inside to ensure that products remain in place.
Bubble Wrap Packaging is made from small beads of resin, similar to rice or pea gravel. These resins are usually in polyethene material and then poured into an extruder with a high temperature of 450ºC to 500°C, which is essential for converting the resin into films. The films then pass through a series of rollers to achieve the desired thickness, then through a cylinder designed with numerous tiny denting holes to give the film its “bubble” shape. Finally, the film enters a final series of rollers for cooling and creating bonds with multiple layers.
