Polybags

Poly bags, aka polythene bags, have a variety of uses in many industries. In the apparel, garment, sew goods, fabric and related industries, poly bags are use to protect goods during shipment from dirt, dust, and moisture. We find discounted suppliers of poly bags in various styles, sizes, shapes, and densities. Some of the common styles include:

  • Flat poly bags
  • Poly bag tubing
  • Reclosable poly bags (aka resealable or zip-lock bags)
  • Wicketted poly bags
  • Gusseted poly bags
  • Garment poly bags
  • Poly film
  • Poly sheeting

Polythene manufacturing

Generally polythene film is manufactured through a blown film process. Small plastic pallets are melted down under controlled conditions and then extruded through a circular die gap forming a continuous plastic tube. The tube is then cut open at one end, inflated and stretched to the desired size and thickness.


Polythene sheeting

Polythene sheeting is available in a few different types with specific properties.


Layflat Tubing

Layflat tubing (also known as film on the roll or poly-tubing) is a flexible, economical and versatile form of packaging. It's particularly useful when packing products of the same width but varying in height and its ideal for packaging long items.

Wide sheeting

Wide sheeting is often termed Builders Rolls and is used to cover large areas in decorating and building environments as well as acting as a very good waterproof membrane.

Black sheeting

Black sheeting is used to create a light proof cover, for security, and in uses where heat absorption is desirable as black absorbs heat.

Pallet Covers

Pallet covers improve the efficiency of warehousing and transport of your product by protecting from water damage, punctures and abrasions, and reducing theft and pilferage in addition to elimination of scattered loads. Covered pallets also contain leakage - thereby reducing the risk of damage to products in close proximity.

Shrink Film

Shrink film comes in two basic varieties: single-wound (flat) polythene tubing slit on both sides, creating two sheets on top of each other and wound separately and centrefold slit on one side before winding so that a long sheet is formed, that opens out to twice the film width.

Stretch Wrap

Stretch wrap is a polyethylene plastic, also referred to as pallet wraps or hand wrap, generally used to hold boxes on a pallet for transport. Stretch wrap is pulled around the load and stretched. The plastic has a memory and wants to return to its original size. Thus the "elastic band effect" holds the load tight. Mostly used to package products together for internal and external shipping.
