An introduction to Polythene bags

Plain polythene bagsThe uses for poly bags are virtually without limit! Whenever there is a need to protect an item during storage or shipment, Polybags can supply a poly bag that is right for the job. Lighter density poly bags are a good choice for items that are not heavy and require only a simple shield from their surroundings. Heavy density poly bags keep your goods safe from harm in more abusive environments where dirt, dust, moisture, movement, etc. are factors that may damage your goods.

Polybags - polythene bags

Packaging

One of the most successful types of packaging is the polythene bag, or Polybag as it is often called. These are also called plastic bags or storage bags. Polythene bags come in all shapes and sizes, small bags, large bags you can even get special promotional polythene bags that can be printed with your own design or logo.

The shape of the bag is also an important consideration in some cases. Flat poly bags are general purpose bags that are often used where a clear presentation at a low cost is desired. We offer wicketted poly bags and gusseted poly bags for applications where the shape and style of the poly bag is vital to how it will be used. For protection against moisture in particular, a reclosable poly bag is suggested, keeping your goods safe while allowing for easy opening and closing.

Manufactured bags

There are many polythene bag suppliers in the UK, but not all of them are able to manufacture their own bags; these companies are known as wholesale distributors wheras a company that manufactures polythene bags is known as a poly bags manufacturer. Bags can be created out of film, plain or coloured and sized to your specifications.

Most types of bags can also be printed for promotional purposes, printed carrier bags are particularly effective as this kind of marketing tool.

Recycling and biodegradable plastic bags

Starch bags are 100% biodegradeable and a viable environmental alternative to paper bags and polyethylene bags. The raw material is based on a new generation of biodegradable substances, mainly made from corn starch.

Types of polythene bags
