Bubble Cushioning Rolls
Bubble Cushioning Rolls are flexible clear plastic packing tools in the shipping of fragile items. The evenly spaced air bubbles create substantial padding separating and protecting the fragile items in the shipping boxes. The air pockets that provide the padding to delicate or sensitive items are commonly offered in various sizes, contingent upon the size of the item being packed and the degree of protection required. A sufficient level of protection against vibration or shock may require several layers of the bubble rolls. One layer of bubble roll could be used primarily as a surface protector.
