While most strips of air pillows have a continuous perforation between each pillow EZ-Tear perforations have about 1” of regular perforation at each end of the pillow with a clean cut through the center of the pillow. Perforations are strong enough to be pulled from either bins or overhead hoppers yet individual pillows are easily separated. Design is said to allow for fuller inflation as well as easier handling. Pillows are made from durable puncture-resistant DuraClear™ material.
