Sealed Air Corporation is a company that makes a variety of packaging materials, systems and equipment. Its brands include Bubble Wrap, Cryovac, Instapak, Shanklin. They have recently moved headquarters to Elmwood Park, New Jersey.
The company was founded in 1960 by inventors Alfred Fielding and Marc Chavannes  who developed AirCap cellular cushioning while they were trying to create textured wallpaper by capturing air between two thin layers of plastic. The wallpaper idea didn't work out, but they realised that their invention would make protective packing material and their idea evolved into Bubble Wrap. The company acquired Instapak in 1976, Sentinel in 1991, the Cryovac Division of W. R. Grace and Company in 1998, and Diversey in 2011.
