Advantages of Using Bubble Wrap® Brand Cushioning

All Bubbles Are Not Created Equal...The Difference Is In The Barrier!
All air cellular packaging material is made from polyethylene. However, polyethylene alone does not provide good air retention over time or under a weight load. That’s why we use a co-extruded barrier that is 100 times more resistant to the passage of air than even a thick single layer of polyethylene. See how this works.
