The air-cushioned film is made by low-density polyethylene film with vacuum forming and than mounting.
The air-cushioned film consists of two or three layers on which there are cylindriform cells in order formed by the
sealing film mounted on the primary film or - in the case of the three-layer cushioned film - by the lamination sheet mounted on the
other side of the vacuum formed primary film. The mounted sealing film can be metallized film as well, in this case we get a product
suitable for heat-insulation and heat-reflection.
Characteristics of the air-cushioned film:
The air-cushioned film has many advantages over other paddings: physiologically harmless, resistant to reagents,
not sensitive to temperature variation (-40C - +60C), has extremely good cushioning effect, good heat-insulating material,
elastic, easily weldable so it can be confectioned, minimal vapour and air permeability, reusable, natural, coloured,
can be produced in UV stable and antistatic version, totally recyclable.
Fields of application: The main application of the product is in the wrapping industry.
In the woodworking industry they use it for the wrapping of upholstered suite of furniture, unit furniture,
building timber constructions, doors and windows. In the glass and porcelain industry it is used as extra material and to form the
padding of the fragile products. In the case of the engineering industry it is applied to cover, to release pressure and to wrap the
elements of heavy, great volume machines. It is also used for the wrapping of electrotechnical products (TV, lamps, electrically
measuring instruments, electrical therapeutic devices, etc.). It is also excellent for the protective wrapping of fine mechanics
and optical products (watches, optical frames, photographic equipment). Thanks to its good heat-insulation the application
of the UV stabilised version is spreading in the horticulture as well. Covering the inside and outside surface of glasshouses
and foiled establishments it reduces the cooling of the inner airspace in the critical night and winter period.
In the heated cultivation houses the great advantage of the covering is that they need less fuel to reach the same temperature.
In the case of unheated forcing, the springtime bedding out of the plants can be done earlier and in autumn the cultivation season
can be extended significantly. Because of the film covering the inner temperature is 2 - 3C higher independently of the weather or the time of day.
Also for its good heat-insulating advantage its use is widely spreading for roof insulation and for covering pools.
It can be practically used as extra material in the case of sensitive fruit and vegetable delivery.
In the food industry they mainly apply it for the pedding of chocolate display cases as well as for the export packaging of chocolate figures.
