Surely having it in your hands, on some occasion, you will have fun exploding the bubbles, but the bubble wrap has other functions much more practical than entertaining children or adults. It is a packaging material widely used in the moving sector due to the variety of advantages it offers.
The bubble wrap for packaging is a foamed film, derived from petroleum. It is achieved by heat sealing two very thin plastic sheets, one flat and the other textured with bubbles. In this way the air stays inside, which provides it with the shock-absorbing and insulating properties.
Bubble wrap for packaging was created in 1957 by two American engineers for the purpose of using it as wallpaper in home décor. After the failed idea, they revolutionized the world of packaging with the utility we know today.
