Air pillows provide enhanced protection and cushioning for delicate items during transportation or storage. These inflatable packaging cushions create a layer of air-filled pockets that effectively absorb shocks and vibrations, minimizing the risk of damage. The air pillows conform to the shape of the items, ensuring a snug fit and providing optimal support. Whether it's fragile electronics, glassware, or other sensitive products, air pillows offer reliable protection to help items arrive in pristine condition.
Air pillows are an eco-friendly and sustainable packaging choice. They are often made from recyclable materials, such as LDPE (low-density polyethylene), which can be easily recycled after use. By opting for air pillows, businesses can minimize their environmental impact and contribute to a greener future. Additionally, the lightweight and compact nature of air pillows reduce the overall packaging volume, resulting in reduced material consumption and transportation emissions. Choosing air pillows aligns packaging needs with sustainability goals.
There’re 3 types of material for cushion air pillow, HDPE, LDPE and biodegradable material. HDPE is the most common type of the air cushion film, it has competitive price. But the air in it can only keep for 7-10 days, and will leak slowly after that. So this decides that HDPE material can only use in short-term transportation.
The air will keep longer for LDPE, normally 1-12 months depending on the thickness. So it’s more suitable for long-term transportation.
As for biodegradable of cushion air pillow, its resistance to compression will be a little weaker than HDPE or LDPE, due to non chemical formula in it. But it can afford normal compression in the packaging, it’s also a good choice for cushion air pillow as it’s environmentally friendly.
Cushion air pillow as one of most popular protective material in the market, it’s not only good for void filling, but also good for small items protective, such as small cosmetics, fruit, tool kits, etc. The air pillow bag is also used together with air bubble wrap or four rows pillow rolls. Use them together in the packaging, will be good to wrap and fix the goods in the box, reduce collisions, and protect the goods well.
Air pillows offer a cost-effective packaging solution while optimizing storage space. Compared to traditional packaging materials like foam or bubble wrap, air pillows require less storage space when deflated. They can be quickly inflated as needed, eliminating the need for storing bulky packaging materials. Furthermore, their lightweight composition reduces shipping costs by minimizing the overall package weight. Businesses can achieve cost savings in packaging materials, storage space, and transportation expenses by utilizing air pillows as an efficient and space-saving solution.
