The day of the blister pack

It always falls on the last Monday of January each year. This year falls on January 28th.

In 1957, American engineer Alfred Fielding and Swedish inventor Marc Chavannes invented a blister foil that was supposed to be originally a 3D wallpaper. It was first made by hand and then the machine was built. Two years later, when the wallpaper failed, Fielding thought of using bubble wrapping as a shock-absorbing material. Chavannes and Fielding founded Sealed Air in 1960. Subsequently, the bubble wrap in America was patented. Mass production began and this packaging has spread all over the world.

The bubble wrap is made of LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene). Regular placement of bubbles in a bubble wrap protects fragile goods during transport or storage, bubble envelopes. It is also used as thermal or sound insulation. It can be used in the pool or as a solar bubble film (harder form) and is used to heat water using the sun. After heating, it serves as heat-insulating insulation. The bubble wrap is firm and flexible and adaptable to every shape. The packaging can be two or three layers, can be transparent or colored or antistatic.

The bubble wrap can be used as a toy or antistress. When bubbling cracks, not only children (they have to watch over) and have a calming effect on the body.
