As a result the air is trapped in the bubbles and bubbles are finally ready for use. With the help of suction these bubbles are formed on the sheet uniformly. The polyethylene resins resembling the size of the pea are taken into extruder. The extruders are long cylinders with a series of screws fitted inside. How is Bubble Wrap Manufactured? Once the beads are inside, the screws are made to run over the beads. During this process heat is built inside the extruder as a result of which these beads melt down. One of the sheets is placed on a drum with holes engraved in it. The melted material is taken out from the cylinder and moved between 2 stacked sheets of plastics.
