About Cheap Bubble Wrap
Lightweight, impact absorbing, pliant, transparent, plastic Bubble Wrap is the ideal cushioning material for packaging and protecting easily damaged goods. Air which is trapped in the many cellular bubbles of its makeup acts as a buffer to protect the contents.
Bubble Wrap is found to be particularly useful in the world of mail order and online business, but anyone who has ever used it when packing belongings prior to moving house can certainly attest to its usefulness and effectiveness in that regard. It is clean and easy to trim to the required lengths and simple to work with. Bubble Wrap can also be used as an effective insulation material as the sealed air pockets allow the retention of heat very effectively.
Another major plus regarding Bubble Wrap is the fact that it can be reused and is 100% recyclable, thereby being both cost effective and environmentally friendly.
Strange as it may seem today, the benefits of Bubble Wrap were not immediately apparent when it was invented by two engineers in 1957. Early ideas for utilising the material were as wallpaper and as an insulation material in greenhouses. It wasn't until one of the material's inventors saw some fluffy looking clouds while on a flight that Bubble Wrap's protective potential was realised. The Sealed Air Corporation was created to market the material and today it is difficult to imagine a world without it. Bubble Wrap is available inexpensively, and can often be obtained at trade prices due to its widespread use by businesses.
