Bubble Wrap Protective Pouches and Why you should use them?
Bubble wrap bags should be used by anyone who wants to package, store, or ship small, delicate items that need protection from shock, moisture, dust and dirt, and even corrosion.
We will see why and how you can use bubble bags and other protective bags / what items can ideally be packed and shipped in them, and how some of the most advanced anti-static and anti-corrosion inhibitor technologies are used in bags and case construction.
Bubble Bags and Why You Should Use Them
Why You Should Use Bubble Bags and Bubble Bags is a breeze in the e-commerce boom we are currently experiencing. Bubble bags offer two things to anyone who wants to ship items: ease of use and great protection. The bubble wrap from which these bags are made is made of polyethene with air bubbles, which act as impact cushions and isolate the items inside from temperature fluctuations. Polyethene also acts as a barrier against water, dirt and dust.
Together these properties make bubble wrap a really useful packaging material on its own. Still, when you shape that wrap into bags and bags, it creates an even more useful packaging offering.
Protective pouches and bags allow easy individual packaging. They can be closed with self-adhesive and self-adhesive flaps to form a secure, nearly airtight carrying case for sensitive items that need to be stored or shipped.
Another key benefit of these bags is that they also inhibit static electricity, making them ideal for the maintenance of electronic and metal items.
Available in a variety of sizes and with a variety of closure and sealing options, The question is not so much why you should use bubble wrap, but why not?
What items are suitable for bubble wrap bags?
What items are suitable for bubble wrap bags? Well, there are no real limits to what bubble bags can use other than size and shape. Most bubble wrap bags are limited by the weight they can hold, and while they come in a variety of shapes and sizes, they are generally best used for smaller items.
Normally, our bubble wrap bags start with internal dimensions of 100 × 135mm and go up to 400 × 600mm. Therefore, bubble bags are ideal for more delicate items, including but not limited to electronics, jewellery, crafts, and some household items.
You can also send bubble wrap books, posters, parts and components, tools, pens. Whatever it is, it can probably go in a bubble wrap bag.
Let’s see how some of these items benefit from being packed in bubble bags.
Electronic and electrical components work well in bubble bags because they require all the essential properties these party packaging solutions have: they offer protection, keep moisture out, and insulate against static charges and temperature fluctuations.
Would you like to ship smartphones, smart TV devices, or other electrical and electronic items? Placing them in a sealable bag should always be the first layer of packaging these items receive.
These bags provide all this protection for jewellery, helping to keep very small items like earrings and rings, pendants and necklaces together and reducing the risk of getting lost.
Even the smallest household items, such as the smallest lamps, ornaments, cutlery, cups, crockery and ceramics and much more, can be used with bubble wrap because they are relatively small, require individual packaging and good shock protection, without Mention insulation against heat, dirt and water. The kitchen and bathroom accessories are also ideal for air bubble bags. Chrome faucets and the like must be protected from damage and often have sensitive moving parts. Here, padded envelopes offer adequate protection because they clearly show what is inside, actually everything is fine, is suitable as bubble wrap for transport. In short, everything that is not too big, not too heavy and needs to be protected from shocks, the environment and electricity can be stored in a single bag.
Other types of pouch bags and their uses
What other types of bucket bags are there, and what are they used for? Bubble bags are just a part of the bag-type bag types used in packaging, shipping, and storage.
Bags with volatile corrosion protection are used, for example, to protect tools, metal components, machine parts and other objects that can rust, rust or corrode in the air.
Iron, steel, aluminium, copper, silver and gold items are just a few of the metals that can corrode in air and form a discoloured coating on the exterior of products.
Traditionally these items had to be greased or coated to protect them; however, bag-type bags contain a volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) (or vapour) added to the polyethene that makes up these distinctive blue bags. This VCI additive evaporates into the air and deposits as a thin layer on the metal surfaces of the bag, preventing moisture from reaching and corroding the item.
When the bag is opened, the VCI protective layer evaporates, which means that the product remains dry, clean, corrosion-free and ready for use and has no effect on plastic or rubber parts. This VCI protection is guaranteed for closed VCI gusset bags for 24 months.
While bubble bags offer good protection against the static charge, there are metallized anti-static bags for particularly sensitive parts and components made with an inner layer of polyethene, a conductive layer of metallized polyester and an outer anti-static and abrasion-resistant coating.
Together these layers form a Faraday cage, which prevents the build-up of static electricity in the bag and protects the merchandise by European ESD standards.
One of the best things about bags is that they are ideal for small items. Small bubble bags and small anti-static foil bags are also available to protect everything from small components in electronics manufacturing to small tools and meters, jewellery, and other valuable items.
The other factor that distinguishes bags from bags is the seal. We have seen that there are bubble bags with self-sealing strips and bubble and VCI bags and anti-static bags and bags with a handle closure. These allow the bag to be opened and closed multiple times so that everything in it is easily accessible and, if used for storage, can simply be put away again.
