Cushioned / Anti Scuff Board.

Extra protection for your products

GWP are one of the first companies to stock and utilise the new Bubble-board material. Consisting of a core layer with outer laminates, the unique benefit is the additional properties the laminate offers (i.e. cushioned or anti scuff surface).

Keeping a range of sheets, sizes and finishes in stock, you can source this material on short lead times and prices comparable to the Correx® sheet. Custom versions are also available.

Bubble-Board material applications

Due to the many properties of the Bubble-board material, it is suitable for an almost limitless range of applications and industries. Our primary use at GWP, of course, is the fabrication of re-usable and multi trip packaging.

Its rigidity and hard-wearing nature mean that it is perfect for creating totes, storage bins, divider sets, layer pads and a wide range of other dunnage.

However, the addition of insulating film, soft textile laminates and the use of colours and pre-printed films also makes it suitable for promotional packaging, POS displays and even trade shows. It is also ideal for creating sleeves and can be used for transporting food produce too.

It is so versatile that it can even be used for lining the loading areas of vans and vehicles!

03: Key Benefits.

Latest material innovations available at GWP

With a commitment to offering your business the very latest innovations in the market, GWP now stock a range of Bubble-board sheets and fabricated products.

Offering exceptional performance and a range of properties that can be tailored to specific applications, the Bubble-board material is available in sheet form or pre-fabricated into boxes, trays, dividers and other packaging products.

There are a number of advantages of using Bubble-board over other materials, thanks mainly to the various surface laminates, but these and other benefits are listed below.

Advantages of Bubble-Board material

  • High degree of strength proportional to its thickness
  • Excellent resistant to bi-directional bending
  • Hermetically sealed cells offer exceptional compression resistance
  • Additional strength leads to cost savings through increased lifespan and reduced damages
  • Huge variety of surface finishes for specific applications
  • Fully recyclable thanks to its manufacture from polypropylene-polyethylene copolymers
  • Can be sterilised for use in clean rooms and medical applications
  • Suitable and approved for use with food
  • Moisture and water resistant
  • Very good resistance to grease, oil and most chemicals
What GWP Correx customers say about us

Bubble-board is a truly revolutionary material. Not only does its’ construction provide it with exceptional bi-directional strength, the surface laminates can help to reduce surface scratches and cushioning from impact for a wide range of components, parts or surfaces.

04: What is Bubble-board?

Plastic material used in a wide range of industries / applications

Bubble-board consists of 3 layers which are joined together in a unique cellular structure to create a sheet material which uniquely is equally rigid in both dimensions. The surfaces can also be over-laminated to provide additional properties and performance benefits.

By laminating the Bubble-board material, a number of other benefits can be achieved.

The most common of these is the use of textiles, with various non-woven or spun-bound fabrics being used on one or both of the outer surfaces. Known as “anti scuff”, the fabric covering ensures that any items with highly polished, painted or decorated surfaces will not be damaged, scuffed or scratched during storage or transit.

Foam laminated board, also known as X Link Cushioning Bubble-board, provides both anti abrasive properties for the surface of items stored or transported, but also provides an additional layer of protection against shock, impact and vibration.

Bubble board sheet
The differing properties of Bubble-board, namely anti scuff and cushioning, make it ideal for a wide range of packaging applications.

Whilst we do not hold stock, we are also able to source Bubble-board and similar materials (such as Bicell) that has had anti-slip coating added, VCI laminates that prevent the oxidisation of any metal components packaged within, plus insulating films that allow packaged goods to maintain a specific temperature for a prolonged period of time (particularly useful with packaging food and perishable items).

Both flame retardant and conductive properties are another set of characteristics that can easily be added during the production process.

06: About GWP Correx®.

A material supplier with a difference

Although GWP Correx®’s core business is actually packaging manufacture, this doesn’t stop you from sourcing a wide range of plastic sheet material from us.

How? Why?

Well, by keeping a large material stock holding of not only the different types of Bubble-board, but also Correx® and Corriplast, you are able to source these products in virtually any volume (no MOQs) on very short lead times. So whilst we keep this material for our own packaging manufacture, you can take advantage of this too.

High volume correx
GWP Can comfortably manufacture both low and high volume Correx® packaging products, meaning no MOQs and greater flexibility for your business

This means you can source plastic sheet material for template or protection applications (for example, Correx® is widely used in construction for floor protection), as well as a wide range of other industries.

But if you are using the material to manufacture packaging, why not ask us at GWP to supply you with pre-fabricated products, saving you the time and hassle?

We have a team of dedicated designers with specific knowledge of the materials in question, specialist manufacturing equipment, and are happy to supply any products you request on a confidential, trade service.
