English term or phrase:"bubble wrap"
bubble wrap is used in packing many products, from books to furniture. I've found "envoltorio de burbuja" and "envoltorio acolchado" but I'm still not satisfied.
Explanation: "Plastico de burbujas para envolver"
This is what we normally say when we ask for this type of wrapping paper.
I have recently translated it utilizing a glossary for a International Commercial Center here in Madrid.
I hope this helps.
