Types of Bubble Wrap and Their Applications
What is Bubble Wrap?
Bubble wrap is a flexible sheet of plastic with air-filled bubbles protruding from its surface. The sheet is used to pack fragile goods such as glass; clay and ceramics to protect them from damage during storage or transit. Available in various sizes and thickness, its main objective is to provide vibration- and shock-isolation, thereby protecting the load from breakage.
Omni offers a wide range of bubble wrapping films categorized into various grades according to usage. Their strength varies from regular to heavy duty. Each type comes with a proven ability to withstand external impact to prevent any loss or damage to the product.
