Bubble wrap was invented in 1960 by a man named Marc Chavannes as a three-dimensional cushioning material for breakable objects. It was made available to the public in 1965 and immediately became a popular choice for shipping fragile items. In fact, one of the first known shipments that included bubble wrap was an order of computer parts sent from NASA to IBM. Those computers were the original mainframes, some weighing as much as 3,000 pounds. Considering that they had to travel hundreds of miles on roads with no lane markings (and probably some downright dangerous drivers), that's saying something about how strong this packing material is.
In addition to its durability, it's also incredibly light—the sort of thing you can create large stacks of without crushing your fingers or having them get sore from holding onto too much weight. Plus, it's got a texture that's fun to pop and makes it easy to pack things together without worrying about them sliding around in the box or getting damaged during transit.
NBM Pack is a bubble rolls manufacturer and supplier in Dubai, UAE. We provide bubble rolls that are used to remove the shocks on products during the transportation process.
There are so many advantages of using bubble wrap; here are a few:
Bubble wrap is a surprising substance. Anyone who has ever received a package delivered by someone who's just a bit too rough with it has probably experienced the crinkly-slippery-cheap feeling of Bubble Wrap. But bubble wrap's crinkly appearance belies its incredible strength. When wrapped around a box or an object, bubble wrap forms an excellent cushion against impact. Its bubbles are actually pockets of air that form watertight seals when pressed flat by the weight of something heavy on top of them, and they resist puncturing far better than anyone would expect.
In addition to its protective function, bubble wrap can also be used for insulation—a role that's especially useful during cold weather. Bubble wrap can be used to insulate pipes against freezing temperatures, especially if you wrap it around the pipe in layers rather than just layering it at one point on top of the pipe. This can save home and business owners money on utility bills while keeping their facilities running smoothly. Additionally, bubble wrap can be used to insulate windows during winter, so if you're not ready to replace your old windowpane just yet, you can still save money on your heating bill with this simple trick.
Bubble wrap is a great way to protect items and provide cushioning in transit. But what do you do with all the leftover bubbles after opening the package? Recycle them, of course! Bubble wrap can be reused as packing material, ensuring that you don't have to buy new bubble wrap every time you need protection. Bubble wrap is much more eco-friendly than some types of packaging, which are difficult to reuse and can cost businesses a lot of money.
If you're thinking about cutting down on packaging or switching from a heavier material to something lighter and more economical, bubble wrap is a great place to start. It's highly versatile and can be used for everything from cushioning fragile items during shipping to separating delicate dishes in storage containers and building balloon models. Because it's very lightweight, bubble wrap has the potential to save you money on shipping costs, especially if an item is being shipped in bulk. It's also cheap—all you need is a stapler and some scissors, and you can get an easy-to-use DIY project underway in no time.
Did you know that it's cheaper to wrap things in bubble wrap than it is to use boxes? It's true! Bubble wrap is both reusable and cost-effective. NBM PACK offers a variety of air pillows and air cushions, including small bubble wrap, bubble cushions, and jumbo pillows. The individual bags are also very useful for mailing small items. When your item is too large for a bubble wrap pouch, our two packs of 24-inch bubble wrap rolls are the way to go. You can use them again and again, so they're really a bargain.
The only downside to bubble wrap packaging? It doesn’t always fit in the mailbox! If your package needs to be shipped by ground mail or UPS, we offer bulk box packaging as well. They come in all sizes, from small packages that fit in an envelope to big boxes that can hold eight gallons of liquid!
No matter which way you ship, you can be sure that at NBM PACK, we have what you need to get the job done—and get it done right.
So what can you really do with bubble wrap? How about using it to insulate your home for summer heat and winter cold? With a little bit of creativity, the possibilities are really limitless. Bubble wrap is extremely easy to cut and shape, so you can use it to cover just about anything.
For example, if you have some corners in your house that are particularly drafty, you can simply cut several sheets of bubble wrap and fit them over the corners. If you have gaps in your window frames, you can fill those in with sheets of bubble wrap and tape them into place. You can also simply tape a layer of bubble wrap up on the windows themselves to help hold in the heat. This can be especially useful if you have old windows that don't shut properly anymore, letting all the warm air out.
Bubble wrap is also useful for keeping in the heat when you're shipping something via mail or a trucking company. It's an effective way to protect your packages from getting damaged by cold weather (especially when facing winter conditions on their journey), as well as keeping them from banging up during travel (e.g., from bumpers hitting walls).
