Bubble Wrap is a transparent LDPE material, normally used for packing fragile items. Regularly spaced protruding air-filled hemispheres (bubbles) provide cushioning protection for fragile items or sensitive objects.
The bubbles that provide the protection for fragile objects are generally available in different sizes. Depending on the size of the object being packed, as well as the level of cushioning protection that is needed we can provide a bubble wrap that matches your requirements.
Multiple layers can be applied to provide better shock and vibration resistance.
There are typically three grades of PE material blended, they are:
1. LDPE (Base Resin.)
2. LLDPE (Higher puncture resistance)
3. HDPE (Extra Rigidity, Physical toughness, less friction)
UVI(Ultra Violet Inhibitor)
PE film will disintegrate (fragmenting and discolouring) within 2-3 Months when it is exposed to ultra violet rays. A 3-6% dose of UVI additive into resins will extend its lifespan against disintegration for a few years; dependent on the % dosage and level of UV radiation.
F/R(Flame Retardant Additive)
This additive contains a high percentage of aluminum hydroxide or halogen based chemicals. When plastic film containing this inorganic agents catches fire, the agent discharges water by thermal decomposition or catches free radicals in the film to help extinguish the flame.
H/S(High Slip Agent)
This agent contains a high percentage of very fine silica powder and amide based chemicals, these will ooze out to the surface of the film gradually and reduce surface friction.
The above Raw Materials and Additives are 100% recyclable and CFC free. (Chlorofluorocarbons - Damage the Ozone)
