How to Use Spunbond Polypropylene Packaging for Shipping

Unlike foam and bubble packaging products, spunbond polypropylene may not fully protect your items from impact damage during shipping. Instead, this cloth-like material protects items from being scratched before they have a chance to arrive at their destinations (make sure to do proper testing on your particular surface).

As a business owner, it is your responsibility to make sure items are properly protected against impact and scratch damage. The best way to do that is to make sure you explore more options than just bubble wrap for keeping items safe during shipping.

In this blog post, we at Premier Protective Packaging will explain in more detail how to prevent shipping damage with spunbond polypropylene. We recommend reaching out to us for more information about your particular needs.

Benefits of spunbond polypropylene include:

  • Soft
  • Lightweight
  • Breathable
  • Nontoxic
  • No chemical additive
  • Resistant to tears
  • Eco-friendly
  • Reduced warehouse space

It’s always a good idea to ask for help to determine what types of products we recommend to keep items safe during shipping. Keep in mind that if you ship a wide variety of products, you may need several different types of packaging materials.


Laptops, cell phones, and tablets are electronics with one thing in common—screens that can get scratched during shipping. Electronics require several layers of protection to keep them safe during shipping. Not only do you have to use foam packaging or bubble sheets to prevent impact damage, but you’ll need to prevent scratching by using spunbond polypropylene products.


Spunbond polypropylene products can be customized for your unique application. For example, you may order spunbond polypropylene sleeves to fit over car side mirrors. Spunbond polypropylene is a cloth-like material that protects car mirrors from accidently getting scratched on their way from the auto factory to the dealership.

Steering wheel covers are also made of polypropylene. The elastic band around the circumference allows you to fit it over the steering wheel so it’s protected from grease or oil. If you own an auto repair shop, steering wheel covers keep car interiors clean while they’re being serviced. Likewise, steering wheel covers keep car interiors clean while being moved to another location. Steering wheel covers can be either reusable or disposable. Reusable steering wheel covers can help you cut costs and keep vehicles protected.

Wood Furniture

Wood furniture is vulnerable to scratches and gouges during shipping, which is why you’ll need polypropylene protective packaging. While wood furniture doesn’t need as much cushioned protection as electronics, they do need something that will prevent pieces of furniture from scraping against each other and gouging the wood.

Spunbond polypropylene is a fabric-like material that can be used with other products to prevent wood furniture from getting damaged during shipping. The spunbond polypropylene products we offer come in bags, sheets, sleeves and tubing.
