Layflat tube ................................................. 4 inches to 62 inches
quality polyethylene bags
We can make many bag constructions including wicketed side seal, standard bottom seal, draw tape, handle, zipper, duplex and special constructions. Vented or water-tight applications can be accommodated. Bags perforated on rolls (POR) and separated bags in-line may also be manufactured.
Starting with quality blown film made with prime FDA resins, we custom manufacture a variety of bags to meet your specifications. all bags manufactured may be printed or unprinted. Types of bags include side seal and bottom seal bags, bags perforated on rolls and separated bags in line. We will make the size and construction to meet almost any package requirement for which monolayer and co-extruded polyethylene can be used, within the limits of our equipment. Clear, colored opaque, or color tints available.
Many bag applications can be satisfied by using inexpensive bags perforated on rolls. These bags are made as the film is being extruded and are wound on cores. We can print one color in-line as well, though limitations apply. Sheets can also be made on a roll, both unprinted and printed (limitations apply). This approach is very economical for applications such as box liners, trash compactor bags, wood chips, mulch or any other material where a simple, low tech bag is adequate.
Bags may also be made in an individually separated, case packed format. This approach is more expensive than bags on a roll, but still less expensive than bags produced out of line. Similar limitations apply for printing, size, and minimum quantity.
