For customers requiring additional interior protection for fragile or delicate products,
we offer a range of small bubble wrap products. Bubble wrap is often
used to fill empty interior spaces of boxes and packages, forcing products to remain
immobile during the shipping process. This can prove invaluable for companies and
organisations transporting items that can easily be broken during transit.
The most popular type of bubble wrap in general use. Perfect for protecting valuable
items in transit and storage. Being flexible helps bubble conform to the shape of
your product, while the lightweight nature helps lower delivery costs.
Because there are so many sizes and shapes to contend with in any dispatch department,
our small bubble wrap is ideal for general usage. Made with bubbles that are 10mm
in diameter, it can be shaped to match any contour, so you can be sure your consignment
is protected at all times.
"Small bubble wrap" refers to the fact it is manufactured with small bubbles. Each
has a diameter of 10mm and a height of 3.5mm. It is suitable for both heavy and
lightweight items on longer storage or journey cycles.
Every small bubble wrap roll from Kite Packaging is 100% recyclable, a major consideration
in the current business world. We are able to offer our customers rapid, free delivery,
and some appealing price discounts for larger order quantities.
Our small bubble wrap products are available in a range of sizes. Each roll of bubble wrap is between 1500mm and 300mm
wide, allowing customers to find the exact product they require. Each of our heavy
duty bubble wrap rolls can be formed and shaped to match the specific dimensions
of your item. Additionally, each of our bubble wrap rolls is 100% recyclable, providing
our customers with an efficient and environmentally friendly packaging product.
Jiffy bubble wrap is manufactured using co-extruded material. A strong nylon barrier
film is incorporated through the centre of the bubble cell material. This makes
it 100 times more resistant to the passage of air than all standard 'mono-bubble'
films. This process reduces the air escape to give Jiffy bubble wrap a much longer
shelf life for lasting protection and performance.
For small bubble wrap projects,
we recommend Jiffy Astro SupraBubble, widely considered to be one of the best bubble
wrap products on the market today. Built using advanced LLDPE resins, these bubble
products are puncture resistant and feature an ‘easy tear’ design to enable quick
and hassle-free usage. Astro SupraBubble features a stronger and lighter design
that provides increased cushioning and surface protection for packaged objects.
Astro SupraBubble can be used in a variety of applications, ranging from internal
wrapping to exterior cushioning.
Jiffy bubble wrap conforms to MOD standards.
Jiffy bubble wrap is 'easy tear' which takes away the need to order, more expensive,
perforated bubble wrap.

Everything you need to know about our bubble wrap
Bubble wrap was invented in 1957 by two Americans called Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding
who were trying to make plastic wallpaper with a paper backing. The wallpaper was
unsuccessful! More importantly though they realised their invention could be used
as a cushioning material so the project resulted in a wonderful material for packaging
and bubble wrap was born. Until then, abrasive paper was the only packaging material,
and it was often useless for heavy or delicate items. The company they founded in
1960 now has a turnover of over $3b.
How is bubble wrap made?
The raw material for bubble wrap is polyethylene. Polyethylene is probably the most
commonly used polymer in everyday life. It is the polymer that is used to make grocery
bags, shampoo bottles, children's toys, and even bullet-proof vests! The polyethylene
enters the bubble wrap factory in a bead form (the size of a small pea).
This beaded polyethylene travels through a corkscrew and is heated (a process known
as extrusion) and melted into a liquid to create a clear, plastic layer. Two flat
layers of film are produced from this process. One layer is passed over a steel
cylinder with holes in it. A powerful vacuum pump inside steel cylinder pulls the
flat polythene layer tight over it to create the bubble. The second flat layer of
film is the passed over the cylinder-laminating itself to the first layer to seal
everything together and make it impossible for air to escape the bubbles.
The two most common sizes of bubble available (large and small) are made using cylinders
with different sized holes. Small bubble has a diameter of 10mm and a height of
4mm per bubble - large bubble has a diameter of 20mm and a height of 7mm.
Bubble wrap is the best way to package fragile and heavy items to ensure they will
not break or chip. Compared to other cushioning materials, bubble wrap holds its
air longer and more consistently. It is also thicker than most cellular cushioning
materials, making it stronger and more durable.
Bubble wrap will also save you money on shipping fragile items. Because you do not
need much bubble wrap to properly secure an item, less material is used to provide
better safety and security for the item.
Bubble wrap also provides some environmental benefits. Not only is it recyclable
at many independent recycling centres, but people can use it over and over without
it reducing its effectiveness. The fact that less material is used for packaging
when you choose bubble wrap also emerges as an environmental benefit.
Manufacturers love bubble wrap because they have found that when they use it for
shipping their products, a much smaller amount of replacements are needed. When
using other packaging materials, the number of replacement items is always elevated.
