The GeoBubble™ shape is scientifically designed specifically for use in a harsh swimming pool environment, and sets a new quality benchmark for all other swimming pool bubble cover materials.

Scientifically designed to be more resistant to chemical and UV attack for longer than a traditional shape bubble cover, and as a result the expected lifespan of GeoBubble™ materials will increase by 25%+*

We offer a range of high performance ‘Guard’ swimming pool cover materials; Sol+Guard™, EnergyGuard™ and CoolGuard™. GeoBubble™ technology combined with these bubble cover materials will give you a longer lasting* swimming pool cover with the highest energy and chemical saving efficiencies.

The science behind GeoBubble™ technology

Swimming pool covers are exposed to high Ultra Violet (UV) radiation and chemical attack. GeoBubble™ material has been designed specifically for use in this environment to help make it resistant against these attacks.

A traditional bubble cover materials original design was developed from the packaging industry, which is a high volume, low quality packaging bubble material which only has a short life-span. Because of this, traditional bubbles have several inherent weaknesses in their design, including thin points and high residual stress. Thin points in a bubble design are weak points which are quickly broken down by UV and chemical attack.

The degradation process is accelerated in areas of high stress, as these areas are under constant strain. These factors result in the bubble material breaking down, and ultimately, premature failure of the swimming pool cover.

What makes GeoBubble™ materials unique?

  • Unique patented design of two bubbles joined together by a waistline centre section
  • No sharp corners resulting in no thin or weak points in the design
  • The material contains no stress due to the smooth interconnected curves
  • The overall size of the GeoBubble™ design is 50% more than a traditional bubble
  • Increased resilience against UV and chemical attack

Why does the GeoBubble™ shape have a large footprint?

The GeoBubble™ design has a much larger footprint than most traditional bubble materials to allow for expansion of air in the bubble shape. The stiff waistline section makes the bubble strong enough to hold expanding air and will not stretch and burst under pressure. The large footprint also acts as an insulator, retaining heat in the pool, plus helps the cover stick to the water so it cannot be blown off the pool.

What is a stabilisation package?

Ultra Violet (UV) rays are emitted by the sun and are partly absorbed by the Ozone layer. UV light is destructive not only to the human skin but also to many manmade materials including polyethylene and plastic products. Unless such materials are specially treated, they become faded and brittle if exposed to UV light and chemicals. So the bubble design alone will not stop premature failure of a swimming pool cover. In cooperation with suppliers and their UK university partners over the last 12 years Geobubble™ have developed the best additive, stabiliser and anti-oxidant package available to suit Australian conditions. This package dramatically increases the lifespan of the swimming pool cover material by helping to make it more resistant to UV light and chemical attack. In combination with the unique bubble design this radically increases the longevity of the product.

How was the GeoBubble™ design developed?

The unique bubble design has been developed by Plastipack for over 5 years in collaboration with London Metropolitan University and the University of Brighton. This synergy between academic and industrial knowledge has enabled the design of the best swimming pool cover material available. Along with the bubble design research has also gone in to the use of the best additives, stabilisers and anti oxidant package, with the aim to provide the best performing and longest lasting swimming pool bubble cover material on offer.
“The new GeoBubbledesign has been engineered to give increased stiffness to the form and increased life for the product. This has been done after careful analysis of the shape, material and manufacturing process. The final bubble form is attractive and also has more uniform wall thickness and much less internal stress”- Dr Mathew Philip, The Polymer Centre, London Metropolitan University
