Bubble Wrap for Packaging
Recommended Cushioning:
Small Cell Bubble Sheeting

Small cell bubble sheeting is packing material made of 1/4-inch-tall (0.64 cm) air bubbles that are encased between two poly sheets as they are sealed together. This sealing process allows encapsulated air to provide a cushion against shock.

Small cell bubble sheeting provides surface protection and scuffing resistance. It also provides good cushioning for lightweight items and can be wrapped around almost any product regardless of shape or size. 

When using small cell bubble sheeting, include several layers to ensure that the entire product is cushioned, and pay close attention to protecting corners and edges. When packing multiple items, wrap each item separately. Fragile items need separation from each other, and from the corners, sides, top, and bottom of the box. 

Each item should be surrounded by at least two inches (5.08 cm) of sheeting and placed two inches (5.08 cm) away from the box walls. This prevents product-against-product damage and protects the contents from shock and vibration, which can pass from outside of the box to the contents. Use enough sheeting to ensure that the contents cannot move when you shake the box. 

Alternate Cushioning:
Kraft Paper

Brown kraft paper is a heavy material intended for packing applications. 

Use kraft paper with a minimum basis weight of 60 lbs or an equivalent non-U.S. basis weight to ensure that it is thick enough to provide protection. Newspaper is not a recommended packaging material. 

When using kraft paper, tightly wad the paper and place around and between the contents. 

Each item should be surrounded by at least two inches (5.08 cm) of kraft paper and placed two inches (5.08 cm) away from the box walls. This prevents product-against-product damage and protects the contents from shock and vibration, which can pass from the outside of the box to the contents. Use enough kraft paper to ensure that the contents cannot move when you shake the box. 

Alternate Cushioning:
Large Cell Bubble Sheeting

Large cell bubble sheeting is packing material made of 1/2-inch-tall (1.27 cm) air bubbles that are encased between two poly sheets as they are sealed together. This sealing process allows encapsulated air to provide a cushion against shock.

Large cell bubble sheeting provides cushioning, and can be wrapped around almost any product, regardless of shape or size.

When using large cell bubble sheeting, include several layers to ensure that the entire product is cushioned, and pay close attention to protecting corners and edges. When packing multiple items, wrap each item separately. Fragile items need separation from each other, and from the corners, sides, top, and bottom of the box.

Product Placement Guidelines

Separate the products from one another with a minimum of 2 inches (5.08cm) of recommended materials
Separate the products from the walls of the container with a minimum of 2 inches (5.08 cm) of recommended materials.
Adjustable Shipping Box
Recommended Container:

200 Burst Strength Box
Use a new, single-wall, corrugated shipping container with a 200-lbs-per-square-inch burst strength, or non-U.S. equivalent.
Packaging Tape for Shippment
Closure Guidelines

Seal the flaps of your shipping container using six strips of pressure-sensitive poly tape. Use a strong tape with a minimum width of two inches (48 mm). For regular slotted containers (RSC) where the flaps meet in the center, apply three strips of tape to both the top and bottom of the box, so the middle and two edge seams are sealed. For corrugated containers where the flaps overlap (FOL), apply three strips of tape to both the top and bottom of the box, so the three edge seams are sealed. Do not use masking tape, cellophane (office) tape, duct tape, string, or paper over-wrap.
