So, yesterday was a holiday, but we`re not going to judge if you didn`t realize it was Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. This happens every year in the last Monday in January. It`s all about the plastic package cushion that both protects whatever is being shipped and happens to be really to pop.

昨天是假期,但是如果你不知道昨天是泡沫包装赞赏日(Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day),没有关系。这个节日是每月的最后一个周一。节日都是关于可以保护运输物品的塑料包装。

CNN visited the factory and found that bubble wrap is only part of its story.

CNN昨日采访了某工厂,发现泡沫包装只是故事的一部分。

Inside Sealed Air`s headquarters in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, they may get by the truckload every hour. But there`s something new happening. In their lab, they`re creating boxes that self inflate, bubbles that inflate on sight and packaging that takes the shape of a product, once it`s cracked much like a hand warmer.

在新泽西州德尔布鲁克的Sealed Air工厂总部,每小时都会有满载的卡车。但是这并不是什么新鲜事情。在实验室里,研究人员正在制作自我膨胀的箱子,表面上是泡沫膨胀,然后包裹出产品的形状,一旦包装破裂,不会产生太大影响。

This is not made out of plastic. It`s made out of mushrooms.

这并不是用塑料做的,而是用蘑菇做的。

Mushrooms that I can eat?

我们食用的蘑菇吗?

Mushrooms that you can eat. Oh, it doesn`t smell.

这些蘑菇是可食用的。但是它们没有味道。

It doesn`t smell like mushroom. Does it take like mushroom?

但闻起来不像蘑菇,尝起来像蘑菇吗?

No.

不像。

But bubble wraps started it all. And like other brilliant inventions, it was made by accident.

但是泡沫包装和其他伟大的发明一样,它的出现只是偶然。

The story begins in 1957 when these guys were trying to make wall paper. It didn`t quite stick, but from that failure, bubble wrap is born.

故事始于1957年,那时的人们试图使用墙纸。但是墙纸的厚度不够,于是泡沫包装诞生了。

What is the secret to making bubble wrap?

那么制作泡沫包装的秘诀是什么呢?

I`m not going to say that.

这我就不能说啦。

Come on down.

这边

This would be one of the resins (ph) that we`re using on the product.

这是我们产品中使用的树脂

And this is essentially plastic?

这实质上是塑料吗?

This is plastic.

是塑料。

And then it gets sucked up into these huge tubes --

然后它就被吸进巨大的管道里。

From here, we will suck it up into anyone of the three lines.

从这里我们可以吸进任意三条。

To form the bubbles, the plastic is melted down at 500 degrees into a consistency like molasses.

为了形成泡沫。塑料在500度的高温融化成粘稠状。

Once we vacuum form the bubble, then we include another layer of material to seal the air inside the bubble.

一旦形成泡沫,就用另一层材料来密封气泡内的空气。

It`s cut down to size by a million dollar machine, and there are over 100 different kinds of bubble wrap, customized for almost every major shipping company in the world.

这是由价值100万美元的机器裁制的,约有100多种泡沫包装,为世界上主要的航运公司定制的。

Bubble wrap is actually only 3 percent of the company`s revenue. Their newer, innovative packaging isn`t so easy to pop.

泡沫包装实际只占本公司收入的3%。公司的新的创意包装不易破碎。

So, this is kind of a thing of the past and this is a thing of the present and future?

这么,这一种代表的过去的包装材料,而这一种则是现在和未来的包装材料?

That`s exactly right.

对的

No bubble wrap.

非泡沫包装。

So, yesterday was a holiday, but we`re not going to judge if you didn`t realize it was Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. This happens every year in the last Monday in January. It`s all about the plastic package cushion that both protects whatever is being shipped and happens to be really to pop.

CNN visited the factory and found that bubble wrap is only part of its story.

VANESSA YURKEVICH, CNN REPORTER (voice-over): Inside Sealed Air`s headquarters in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, they may get by the truckload every hour. But there`s something new happening. In their lab, they`re creating boxes that self inflate, bubbles that inflate on sight and packaging that takes the shape of a product, once it`s cracked much like a hand warmer.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is not made out of plastic. It`s made out of mushrooms.

YURKEVICH (on camera): Mushrooms that I can eat?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Mushrooms that you can eat. Oh, it doesn`t smell.

YURKEVICH: It doesn`t smell like mushroom. Does it take like mushroom?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No.

(LAUGHTER)

YURKEVICH (voice-over): But bubble wraps started it all. And like other brilliant inventions, it was made by accident.

The story begins in 1957 when these guys were trying to make wall paper. It didn`t quite stick, but from that failure, bubble wrap is born.

(on camera): What is the secret to making bubble wrap?

ED ACKERSHOEK, SR. ENGINEER, SEALED AIR: I`m not going to say that.

(LAUGHTER)

ACKERSHOEK: Come on down.

This would be one of the resins (ph) that we`re using on the product.

YURKEVICH: And this is essentially plastic?

ACKERSHOEK: This is plastic.

YURKEVICH: And then it gets sucked up into these huge tubes --

ACKERSHOEK: From here, we will suck it up into anyone of the three lines.

YURKEVICH (voice-over): To form the bubbles, the plastic is melted down at 500 degrees into a consistency like molasses.

ACKERSHOEK: That`s exactly right.

YURKEVICH: No bubble wrap.
