Words Worth Knowing: Regular Bubble

The near-universal void fill of choice—plastic sheeting studded with cells full of air. Originally created as 3D wallpaper in the 50s, it was eventually discovered to be perfect for protecting items. Today, almost any expensive product you buy is likely to be wrapped in it. Varying cell sizes mean you can protect something as small and fragile as a glass, or larger, heavier items like automotive components.
