Polythene is a versatile material that can be used to create a wide range of products for packaging, storage, and transportation. Here is a more detailed explanation of the included products:
Polythene bags are the most commonly used form of packaging for a wide range of goods and products. They are lightweight, durable, and can be customized to suit the specific needs of different industries. The following are different types of polythene bags:
Flat Bags or Gusseted Bags:
Flat polythene bags are a simple, cost-effective packaging option used to contain and transport a wide range of products. Gusseted bags are similar to flat bags but have an expandable pleat on either side, providing additional room to house larger or bulkier products.
Polythene pallet covers are used to protect goods on pallets from water, dust, and other contaminants in warehouse, storage, and distribution settings.
Polythene carrier bags are lightweight bags with handles that are commonly used to carry individual or multiple items. They can be made in different sizes and thicknesses to suit the specific needs of different businesses.
Polythene refuse sacks are medium to heavy-duty bags that are typically used for waste disposal in various industries, such as hospitality, healthcare, and retail.
Wicketted and Blockheaded Bags:
Wicketted bags are polythene bags that are stacked and held together on a thin metal bar or "wicket" for faster and easier dispensing. Blockheaded bags have an extra piece of polythene that sits above the lip of the bag and is melted to the layer below. They are designed for use in packing operations where speed is critical.
Permanent or Re-sealable:
Permanent or re-sealable polythene bags have a pressure-sensitive or slide-seal closure, making them ideal for packaging products that need to be kept airtight, such as food items or electronic components.
Self-seal Bags/ Mail Bags:
Self-seal polythene bags are lightweight and sturdy bags designed for shipping products. Mail bags have a self-sealing fold-over lip, so no additional packing materials are required to secure them.
Tray and Box Liners:
Polythene tray and box liners are an integral part of packaging for many industries, used to protect the contents of trays and boxes from a range of contaminants, such as dust, dirt, and moisture.
High-tensile polythene bags are made from a higher density material than standard bags, making them up to 50% stronger. They offer higher puncture and tear resistance, making them ideal for packaging products that require extra protection.
Dolav/ Tray Liners:
Dolav/tray liners are designed specifically for use with Dolav containers in the food industry. They protect the contents of the trays from a range of contaminants.
Polythene film is a thin, flexible material that can be used to create a wide range of products, including bags, sheets, and tubing. The following are different types of polythene film:
Centre Fold Sheeting:
Polythene centre-fold sheeting is folded in the middle and wound onto a roll. It can be supplied directly on the roll or in pre-cut perforated sheets either on a roll or boxed loose.
Single Wound Sheeting/ Double wound Sheeting:
Single wound sheeting is lay flat tubing, slit on both sides to create two sheets on top of each other and wound separately. Double wound sheeting is made by slitting lay flat tubing on both edges and winding it onto one reel.
Tubing – Lay Flat or Gusseted:
This is a polythene bag which is sealed at the sides, but with no bottom, provided on a roll for continuous use. Lay flat tubing is a flat polythene sheet, which is sealed on both sides, but not at the bottom, while gusseted tubing has pleats on either side to allow for expansion.
Top Sheets/ Base Sheets:
Top sheets are a low-cost alternative to strapping or tape as a bundling option. They can also be used to protect pallets from dust and other contaminants. Base sheets can be used to protect palletized goods from dust, dirt, and water. They also prevent the movement of items on a pallet during transit.
Plastic film that can be stretched over and around awkwardly shaped items. When heated (either using a handheld heat gun or conveyor heat tunnel), the film will then shrink to tightly fit the items within. Shrink film is commonly used for packaging products such as CDs, DVDs, and other small items.
