Inflatable Packaging FAQs
Do I need any special equipment to use AirPacks?
No, any standard 3 pin air compressor is all you need, or a hand pump can also be used.
If you want to use our Black Heat Sealable UV Protective Packs, you will also need a heat sealer.
How long does the air stay in the AirPacks once inflated?
AirPacks typically hold air for at least two years. Although a small amount of pressure maybe lost over this period, this will not be enough to affect the performance of the AirPack.
Do you have a minimum order?
Our minimum quantities start from as little as 25 AirPacks, however our prices become lower if you purchase in boxed and pallet quantities. Please contact us for pricing details.
How quickly can I inflate an AirPack?
Typically between 1-3 seconds.

What is different about AirPacks compared to other inflatable bags available?
AirPacks are made from the highest quality materials available and are manufactured using the very latest technology. As a result we believe that AirPacks are of a superior quality to that of our competitors and offer improved reliability.
Our AirPacks are manufactured using an advanced extrusion process compared to our competitors whose process leaves their bags prone to defects and quality issues.
Compare our products side by side and you will be able to see and feel the difference in quality immediately.
Do you have any videos of AirPacks being inflated?
Yes, please go to our videos page.
Why should I swap from using Polystyrene?
Please see our comparison chart page – but in summary, Polystyrene is bulky and environmentally unfriendly.
Can you supply boxes for us as well?
All our Bottle Packs come supplied with boxes. All other AirPacks are supplied by themselves, but we can supply boxes if required. Please contact us for further details.
Can you reuse AirPacks?
All of our clear AirPacks can be re-used, as can our black non-heat sealable AirPacks. The only Airpacks that can’t be used are from our black heat sealable range as once the seal is broken the AirPack cannot be reused.
Do I have to blow up each individual chamber?
No, each AirPack is inflated from a single point and the air then flows through one way valves into the individual chambers.
How can I deflate an AirPack?
It’s simple. Carefully cut through the bag with a pair of scissors, screw the AirPack up and place into your recycling bin.
What happens if an AirPack gets punctured?
Even if one or more air chambers becomes punctured the adjacent chambers remain inflated and your goods remain protected.
