Choosing the right Bags, Part 1

This month we would like to take a look at the vast array of bags that we supply at Packaging Supplies, similar to our blogs on boxes we will break these down into smaller chunks, starting off this week’s blog with a range of different types of polythene bag.

Clear Polythene Bags

Clear polythene bags are economical and can be used for a wide range of industries.  They offer protection against dust, dirt and moisture and are supplied in various grades.  All of the polythene bags are food grade approved.

  • Light duty polythene bags are ideally suited for lightweight items such as clothing, instruction booklets, foodstuffs and soft toys.
  • Medium duty polythene bags are used throughout a range of industries including fashion, groceries, pet food and publishing.
  • Heavy duty polythene bags can be used for DIY products and for building or gardening items such as sand or pebbles etc.

Although we only stock light and medium grade bags in our online shop we can supply polythene bags in a heavier grade. Please contact Packaging Supplies for more information and prices.

Grip Seal Bags

Grip seal bags or mini grip bags are a self seal bag of medium duty.  The grip seal bags are also transparent and are supplied in either clear or with a write on panel for quick and easy identification of your items. Grip seal bags offer a good protection against moisture, dust and dirt and are suitable for use with food.  The mini grip bags have a squeeze and seal closure for continual re-use.  The bags are particularly useful for keeping items in storage.

Layflat Polythene Tubing

Layflat polythene tubing is supplied on a roll. It is a continuous length of polythene tubing that can be cut and sealed to create custom bags of almost any size. Layflat tubing protects against dust, dirt and moisture.  As per the polythene bags, layflat tubing can be sealed using twist ties or by using a heat sealer or bag neck sealer.

The layflat tubing available to buy in our online shop is clear and supplied in a heavy duty gauge.  However, layflat tubing can be manufactured in other colours and gauges with a fast turnaround.  Please contact Packaging Supplies for further information and prices.

Refuse Sacks

Packaging Supplies offer a high quality polythene black refuse sack.  These refuse sacks can be used for both domestic and industrial use. Refuse sacks can also be printed and supplied in different colours for easy identification.  Please contact us for further information on this.
