Wrap Your
           T O Y S UP

I’ve bought a 15 meter roll of Polyethylene Foam last year of August. Yesterday is the only free time I had for doing this so I just wrap and cover some of the few toyz I have. I know, ziplock bags or bubble film wrap would have been much easier to use, but I prefer using this method. It’s a bit cumbersome to do, but for me, It’s definitely worth the trouble.

I was going to pack and wrap some of my things, but found out that I ran out of Polyethylene Foam. So, I went to the nearest office supplies and bought a 15 meter roll of this, which I normally use for packaging.

    Polyethylene Foam sheets


Polyethylene Foam, also known as PE, is a strong resilient closed cell foam. Used for shock absorbing, vibration dampening, loose fill, and its most common use: cushioning products in packaging applications.

Found in all types of packaging, polyethylene is used to wrap furniture, computer components, electronics, sporting goods, plants, frozen foods, clothing, bowling balls, signs, metal products, and more. It comes in forms designed to minimize static or maximize thermal insulation, among dozens of other variants. The material is impervious to bacteria and mold and is tear-resistant. Polyethylene is among the cheapest of artificially fabricated materials, but not as cheap as most raw materials, as the polymerization process consumes energy. In addition, distribution costs are normal because polyethylene cannot be compressed much for shipping.
