Paper Mart bubble wrap is one of the most important packaging materials used as protection for fragile objects during shipment. Large bubble wraps are also the most economical option to fill in the void in corrugated boxes to ensure that the movement of the product being shipped is restricted. Bubble wraps guarantee that the product will reach the customer’s doorstep in one piece.
Recently, it turned out that bubble wraps can provide a new service apart from being a packaging material. On April 1st which is also April Fool’s Day, UK’s 9,000-acre Longleat Safari Park announced a new service to its visitors – bubble-wrapping cars that tour the notoriously close-contact “Monkey Drive-Through” to prevent vehicle damages from the raucous resident rhesus macaques. Since it is April Fool’s Day, the announcement was actually a prank but surprisingly the reaction from customers was overwhelmingly positive. There were even comments that the idea was ingenious.
There is also a bubble-wrapped cement pillar in Victoria Park arcade which at first glance may be assumed as the work of a neurotic and fearful driver who has no faith in his driving abilities. On second thought, whoever thought of using bubble wrap to buffer potential contact between the concrete pillar and a car is both a brave and practical individual. The colony of tiny air bags certainly provides some sort of protection for cars navigating the tight spot.
There is certainly an endless list of practical and clever uses for the bubble wrap. Not only is it used as a cushioning material when packaging fragile and highly sensitive products, bubble wraps can be used as sleeping bag padding, window insulation and protection for items that have purchased while on holiday.
However, the most satisfying and popular use of bubble wraps is for stress relief. It would be good innovation if packaging manufacturers will produce a bubble wrap that releases certain scents when popped. According to a poll by Polymer Solutions, one minute of popping bubble wrap air bubbles is equivalent to 33 minutes of stress relief massage. Considering that bubble wraps are highly affordable, an individual can certainly make use of the packaging material during bad days.
