Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day

 

To celebrate the 14th Annual Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day, Sealed Air Corp. has announced that Eric Buss and his ‘Bubble Wrap Bike’ video have been voted by Bubble Wrap fans as the first-ever inductee into the official Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day Hall of Fame located on BubbleWrapFun.com.

 

“We are proud to kick-off the inaugural year of the Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day Hall of Fame by honoring Eric Buss and his amazing ‘Bubble Wrap Bike’ video as our first ever inductee, as it most exemplifies the passion, fun and creative uses of our iconic packaging material,” says Rohn Shellenberger, business manager for Sealed Air’s Product Care division. “On a day where millions around the globe celebrate Bubble Wrap brand’s invention, Buss’ video represents what this holiday is all about and we are excited to watch him ride his Bubble Wrap Bike straight into the Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day Hall of Fame.”

 

Buss won not only the hearts of fans, but also induction into the Hall of Fame by shooting a video in which he creatively fastens a roll of Bubble Wrap brand cushioning in front of the wheel of his bike to make a continuous stream of “pops” as he rides over it. His video rose to “pop”ularity earlier this year, as it amassed more than 1.5 million views on YouTube. Sealed Air selected three finalists for consideration in the Hall of Fame’s inaugural year, including fantastic runners up ‘JoJo’s Bubble Wrap Praise Break’ and ‘Cat vs. Bubble Wrap.’

 

“I love popping Bubble Wrap material as much as anyone… but doing it with my fingers is way too slow for my taste,” Buss says. “I thought, ‘I need more noise, faster.’ What a great country we live in… I’m being awarded for popping Bubble Wrap material with a bike!”

 

In addition to Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day immortality, Eric will be awarded a giant bale of commemorative Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day Hall of Fame Bubble Wrap brand protective cushioning. Fans can visit the new Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day Hall of Fame at www.BubbleWrapFun.com.


More on Bubble Wrap and Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day
Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day is celebrated every year on the last Monday in January.

 

The originally intended use for Bubble Wrap was entirely different than how it is used today. Inventors Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding originally developed a plastic they hoped to market as textured wallpaper. When that idea did not take off, the inventors began to have some success marketing the product as a greenhouse insulator.

 

Chavannes then realized that Bubble Wrap brand cushioning could be used as an improvement from paper and old newspapers for cushioning fragile items. Once the opportunity was identified, the inventors worked hard on the manufacturing process for Bubble Wrap cushioning in an effort to create an ideal packaging material. After a lot of tinkering, they developed a special, proprietary barrier protection which prevented air from leaking and resulted in the crisp “Pop” that Bubble Wrap brand is famous for.

Information About Plastic Injection Molding

Information About Plastic Injection Molding

Plastic is the most versatile material that is used in most applications today. The wide range used of this material has made a great impact in most industrial world. One of the processes in creating plastic product today is called plastic injection molding. This is a process of manufacturing plastic by using thermosetting plastic and thermoplastic substance.

The first plastic product called Parkensine was created by Alexander Parkes in 1851. This product is can be molded, heated and usually retains it shape when it is cooled, thus the downside of this is, it is extremely flammable, expensive and easy to crack. Another invention of plastic called celluloid was developed by john Wesley Hyatt. This product was an improved version of Parkes’s invention. It is through John Wesley Hyatt and his brother wherein the first molding injection machine was developed. This machine is a simpler version of today’s injection molding machine.

Plastic injection molding is commonly used for creating various parts of cars, from tiniest elements to the whole body components. This process involves feeding of material into barrel that is heated, afterwards, the material was mixed then placed into a cavity where it is allowed to harden and cooled. The product was design mostly by an engineer or an industrial engineer. After the molded product was harden and cooled, a machine called precision-machined, with the supervision of a mold-maker, is used to form the specific feature of a part of a specified product.

Aside from creating various components of a car, injection molding is also used for almost plastic goods such as bottle caps, wire pools, packaging, pocket combs and some gadget components. This process is widely used way in developing parts. It is used to produce vast amount of parts.

The common advantages of this process are low labor cost, scrap losses are minimized, vast rate of production, finishing of parts is minimized and wide range of materials are can be utilized.

Go Green And Use High-Quality Plastic Containers

Go Green And Use High-Quality Plastic Containers

We have gotten far better at recycling and reusing products in an effort to save our planet. But, let’s face it, there are some things, such as plastic wrap, resealable bags and even aluminum foil, that are almost impossible to reuse. Most towns want clean aluminum foil, which means ninety percent of the foil used in most households cannot be recycled. All those bags and cling wrap go into the trash and clog our landfills.

More recently, companies have been developing so-called reusable, disposable plastic containers. They have that little “recyclable” symbol on them, but very few facilities are set up to recycle No. 5 plastics. So where do they end up? In landfills. That little number on the triangle included in most plastic products is a clear indication whether a product can be recycled or not. Yes, No. 5 plastics are considered recyclable, but most municipal recycling programs only accept No. 1 and No. 2 products.

Here’s another thing to consider: While we’re all being good samaritans by recycling everything under the sun, the market for recyclables is nearly saturated. Instead of being recycled, municipalities are stock-pilings tons of plastic and glass bottles and containers waiting for the day when someone will actually want them. In the end, the result is the same: a landfill stuffed with glass and plastic.

What’s the answer, then? Buy something you don’t have to throw away after just a few uses. The best way to go green with your food storage is to use high-quality food storage containers that will last for years. It’s the way we used to store food before convenience overtook common sense. Long-lasting plastic containers got their start back in the 1945 when Earl Tupper recognized that the invention of a new plastic, Polyethylene, could mean the start of something big. He started producing plastic bathroom cups in a variety of colors and then introduced the lidded bowl. Much innovation has happened over the years, with more and more variety and versatility now included in today’s container selection. You name it, you can find a container that can store it—and store it much longer than older containers. Many companies have come up with their own lines of plastic containers to compete with the famous Tupperware, which even after more than 60 years continues to be the industry standard.

Most recently came the advent of the disposable container. Thankfully, eco-friendly awareness is bringing back some common sense and more and more people are recognizing not only the economic benefits of buying good food containers, but also the environmental ones.

In fact, one major university is urging its students to use reusable food containers and ditch the disposable ones that have become quite popular among the dorm-living set. More glass containers are popping up, but many moms worry about breaking glass. You’re not going to send a five-year-old with a glass container filled with carrot sticks to class. The most environmentally friendly and safe alternative is plastic storage containers.

Jamison & Krista Alexander are the owners of http://www.keepmyfoodfresh.com and they promote great quality food storage containers.

glass olive oil bottles,

glass olive oil bottles,

Glass olive oil bottles comprising a shoulder, a bottle neck on which a pump can be mounted, and a cap which can be snapped thereon, thereby covering the shoulder and the bottle neck, and which has an upper opening in which a grip member of the pump is displaceably seated. The bottle neck is equipped on two diametrically opposed circumferential sections with undercuts and comprises laterally projecting attachments on diametrically opposed circumferential sections which are offset thereto by about 90°, each of said attachments being provided with a groove extending in the circumferential direction of the attachments or with a projection extending in circumferential direction. Two resilient arms are formed on the inside on the cap, and at least one circumferentially extending projection or at least one circumferentially extending groove is formed which can be locked with the grooves or projections of the attachments of the bottle neck.
Preferably, the glass olive oil bottle consists of an outer container and a rigid, dimensionally stable plastic material and a soft inner pouch which receives the contents of the bottle, preferably a liquid. The pump is preferably an airless pump which sucks the contents of the container out of the soft inner pouch without permitting air to enter into the soft inner pouch for pressure compensation, so that the pouch will contract more and more during discharge of the contents of the container. Openings are provided in the outer container for pressure compensation.

The present invention, however, is not limited to such a bottle, but it can also be applied to single-walled containers which are provided with a cap and a pump.For operating a bottle of the kind in question, it must be ensured that the grip member of the pump, which in the vertical direction is displaceably seated in the upper opening of the cap, does not “lift off” the cap from the bottle upon its actuation (i.e., when being pressed down) for whenever, as is often the case in practice, the grip member is not pressed by the user exactly in the vertical direction (i.e., in the direction of the longitudinal axis of the bottle inwards), a lateral force acts on the cap that causes a torque which may lead to a detachment of the cap from the bottle, so that the pump is no longer operative. The risk that the cap is “lifted off” is further enhanced in cases where the grip member has an enlarged grip surface for comfortable handling, the grip surface projecting beyond the shaft of the grip member which is displaceably received in the covering cap, so that the above-mentioned torque is created almost automatically by the depression of the grip member, such torque tending to lift off the covering cap from the bottle on the side opposite to the projecting part of the grip member.

The Invention of Marking Pens

The Invention of Marking Pens

A marking pen or permanent marker is a form of marker pen that is utilized to generate everlasting writing on paper or any other objects. A marking pen’s liquid is usually resistant to water, and include solvents such a alcohol and toluene, and has the capabilities of marking on an array of surfaces ranging from simple paper to stone or even metal. Marking pens have many different tips ranging from very fine to very wide, shapes comprising points, wide bristle or bullet tip and colors like ultraviolet, metallic and non metallic. Pens emanate involatile organic components, just like spray paint. Contemporary pens nowadays are also made with recyclable plastic.

It is almost impossible to rid of stains caused by pens, but if caught in time, the stain may be thinned out by utilizing a paint thinning solvent.

Today, there is a multitude of pens brands available in the market, but the most familiar to many people would be the Magic Marker, the brilliant invention of Sidney N. Rosenthal in 1952 and was later produced and endorsed to the public by Speedry Chemical Products Inc.

Sidney N. Rosenthal filed for the U.S. Patent No 2713176 on April 22nd, 1953. This apparatus was described as a marking implement comprising a reservoir made of glass for the containment of ink and is affixed to a nib construction that would permit the pen to be immediately usable at any given time even when not used for a long time.

The marking pen Magic Marker culminated as the registered trademark of Speedry Products Inc in 1957. The pens produced by Speedry was described as ‘a felt nib marking pen’ which comprised minute jars for ink and sealed with caps.

There is one more famous marking pen which is known and used by many. Called the Sharpie, it is a trademark of the Sanford Ink Company. The initial Sharpie marking pen made its debut in 1964, and the term ‘Sharpie’ was commercially used in May 1964. The history behind the Sharpie is quite interesting; in March 1944, Walter J. De Groft filed for a patent describing ‘a marking pen equipped with a handle part which formed a liquid container and a nib of a permeable element for application of liquid to be marked’. This is actually a few years before the invention of the magic marker.

Pens are used for a variety of purposes; in art, artists use this device liberally to sketch and create portraits. In schools, marking pens are also used for art purposes, as the wide nibs allow children to create big pictures using interesting colors. People use pens when marking boxes when they move. Pens can also be used for promotional marketing purposes, given away as advertising items to existing clients and to attract new ones.

In short, what would our lives be without these magic marking pens?
