1. Raw Polyethylene
At 3A Manufacturing we produce all of our own bubble wrap, starting with the base materials.
Plastic resin, compounded to our specification is mixed with other additives.
3. Other Additives
As much in house waste is recycled as possible. Mixed with new material it is fed into the film machine, heated, melted and extruded as thin sheets.
4. Bubble Wrap Lamination
Air pockets are vacuum formed on the thin sheets at high speed to create individual bubbles.
5. Rolled into bulk
The bubble film sheet is wound into ‘jumbo’ sized rolls in a continuous process.
6. Antistatic Tests
Antistatic bubble wrap is tested for conductivity and static dissipation.
7. Ready for Distribution
Rolls ready for distribution and conversion into bubble bags.
