What Properties of Aluminum Bubble Foil Insulation Make It Ideal for Cold Chain Packaging?

May 17,2023
Bubble foil insulation
Bubble foil insulation is ideal for cold chain packaging as it prevents radiant heat transfer. You'll recognize bubble foil as the shiny aluminized surface that lines the insulated shipping box and keeps products at the recommended optimum temperature while in transit.

How Does Bubble Wrap Protect Items?

Bubble wrap protects products in two ways:

It effectively reflects up to 95% of all long-wave radiant heat it comes into contact with.

Bubble wrap foil insulation re-radiates only 5% of the heat when in close contact with items of the same temperature. On the other hand, most everyday building materials reradiate 90% of the time when placed at the same distance.

Efficient Performance

When used in insulated shipping boxes and other insulated packaging supplies, bubble wrap insulation is effective in blocking 3 types of heat flow:

- Conduction

- Convection

- Radiation

Plus, the bubble wrap effectively buffers moisture, drafts, and steam, and repels mold and fungus.

Intuitive Product

The convenience of bubble foil insulation lies in its ease of use. The product is light and compact but flexible at the same time. It also comes in convenient custom sizes to fit any shipping carton.

In addition, the air bubble film is puncture-resistant, and not easy to tear and crack. Even better, it's easy to install and adapts well to unusual shapes.

Low-temperature sealing tape can also provide an extra layer of protection for your product. Its unique composition means it maintains grip in a wide range of temperatures, including cold and wet areas as well as room temperature. This tape gives you added peace of mind.

Safe and Environmentally Friendly Products

Bubble foil insulation has an excellent record as a safe product that poses no health risk. The insulated transport box is non-toxic and flame retardant, Class A/Class 1 category for flame and smoke spread.

The product benefits workers as no protective face shield or protective clothing is required to handle or install it. Made from 20% recycled plastic, this insulation has an A+ rating for the environment.

Economical Cold Chain Packaging Solution

Insulated shipping boxes are a cost-effective solution for a variety of consumer applications. They are also very effective for use in industry and manufacturing.

The main reason for this is that they are much less expensive than traditional insulation materials, costing about half the cost of traditional insulation materials.

Which to choose Aluminum foil coated PE or Metalized pet film coated PE ?

It depends on what product to be made in final procedure. Aluminum foil coated pe is with at least 97% reflectivity, it can be bonded to EPE foam but also most of time for laminated with bubble. Metalized pet film coated PE with lower reflectivity ,but it is with strong surface.

I am a insulated liner/bag manufacturer,what product do you suggest?

There maybe bubble lamination machines and heating pressure lamination machines in your factory, we suggest Aluminum foil 7mic+PE20mic, and Metalized PET film12mic+PE15mic.

If i would like to get a quote ,what information shall i need to know first?

You are request to telling application, material structure,thickness and roll width and quantity.

What is the MOQ and how is packaging?

MOQ is 1000kgs for each product, packaging depends on roll size, common width is 1200mm and 1500mm, length are 4000m to 5000m per roll. Rolls can be vertically packed on pallet also accept to do horizontal suspending packaging.

Is this product by wet lamination or by dry lamination?
