Atlantic Poly’s polyethylene bags are popular and commonly required items. These bags are also known as clear poly bags and are always available with an opening at the top. They are mainly required for packaging purposes, and these bags can be heat-sealed or secured with a bag-tie. These bags are useful for many needs, such as:
  • For the storage and protection of art and furniture
  • Packing of electronic parts
  • For the packing of garment and bedding covers
  • Bags for waste disposal
  • To pack goods that are in transit
  • Retail display
  • Sale of goods at craft and pet shops
  • To package food and medical devices
  • Bags for freezer grade
Polyethylene Bags are mostly made from a polyethylene film which is created by using a Blown Film Extrusion process. In the process small plastic pellets called resin are melted down conditions and pressed through a circular die gap to form a lengthy tube of plastic. Whilst in this state the plastic is stretched to the desired size and thickness to form the different gauges of plastic. The bags are made by cutting rolls of this film and heat sealing them. Rolls of this sheeting is sent through a machine which takes in material of a proper length, the machine then cycles to place a seal on it and then cuts it off to make an individual bag.
