POLYTHENE/PLASTIC WRAP & SHEETING
Our blend of polythene sheeting can be used to service an extensive range of markets including, construction, agricultural, home appliances and glass manufacturing to name just a few.
Single wound, centrefold and multi-fold sheeting
Our polythene sheeting is supplied on rolls/reels and can manufactured either single wound (One continues sheet) or perforated on the roll/reel (according to customer specification). Single wound sheeting is ideal for multipurpose uses as it allows the end user to cut the sheeting to individual lengths depending on the required usage. Perforated sheeting is better suited to business that will be using the product for a set specific length each time which results in significant time saving applications.
Top sheets/Base sheets
In addition to rolls of sheeting we offer polythene sheets that can be supplied and packed as singles or alternatively double wound on the reel.
LAY FLAT TUBING
Allpack Polymers can supply all of your Lay Flat Tubing needs.Lay flat tubing can be extruded in sizes from 75mm to 2000mm. Thickness of extruded tubing can be from 60 gauge / 15 microns up to 1,000 gauge / 250 microns. Depending on the size of the tubing ordered the quantity ordered can be as little as 50kg. We can provide the lay flat tubing in reel form weighing from 5kg upwards. This Tubing can also be ordered based on the metres per roll if you prefer. In layman’s terms the tubing is measured across the face flat width and with gusseted film the full open width (with the gussets opened to their maximum) gives the second dimension. The tubing can be ordered as clear material or if required with a coloured tint or coloured opaque. The tubing can be treated on one side or two sides for label adhesion and can be printed with your company logo or any design you wish. In –Line printing, where the tubing is printed and extruded as a single process, is a very economical solution if you wish is to have a one colour or two colour random print onto the tubing for product identification or also for printing of safety warning notices. As well as high specification food grade polymers our in-house reclaim facilities enables us to be competitive with recycled materials when producing our lay flat tubing. Also held in stock is a vast range of additives including anti-static, anti-blocking agents, slip, EVA, Flame retardant and UVI inhibitants together with a comprehensive range of colours that can be used when extruding the tubing to suit your requirements. Please contact our team to discuss your specific needs and we will gladly help and advise.
CLEAR POLYTHENE BAGS
Allpack Polymers manufacture and supply a wide range of clear polyethylene bags (commonly known as polythene or poly bags) which can be produced in standard metric or imperial sizes to your exact specifications. Films and bags are made in various thicknesses to suit your specific needs. We will copy bags you are already using or we can work with you on designing and developing new packaging. In other words we will design and supply flexible packaging to suit almost any purpose. Allpack Polymers constantly work with on going customers once a need for a flexible packaging solution has been identified and aim to improve any appearance and packing issues that may arise, we will provide samples and smaller production runs to trial any new packaging before a full order is placed. With nearly 25 years’ experience in the flexible packaging industry you can be sure that whatever your packaging requirements we will be able to help you. Polythene is a cost competitive and versatile form of packaging and is an ideal packaging solution for a wide range of industrial and consumer products. Our plain polythene bags can be treated for label adhesion – This is where an electrical charge is passed through the material which microscopically alters the surface of the polythene to ensure secure & permanent label adhesion. This is the same process also used when the polythene is to be printed to ensure the printing inks can “key” to the film. We have a number of plain different duty polythene bags & sacks available from stock in standard sizes. Polythene films are available in natural or coloured film and can be printed to specific customer requirements for a higher quality personalised bag. Please see our page on Printing for further details. Our ranges include: Flat polythene bags: Standard Clear Polythene bags often used for general packing requirements. Gusseted Clear polythene bags: Plastic bags with fitted bottom and expandable sides (gusset) formed to the shape of your product. A common use for Gusseted bags is as garment bags and box liners. Perforated polythene bags: We can supply your polythene bags with perforations. These can either be with a number off 6mm cut out or butterfly perforations or micro-perforated (to still offer some protection from outside elements) to allow air in and out of the bag – to cover Health & Safety issues or to let a product “breath”. We can also produce polythene bags with a perforation line for easy tear off from either a wicket or produced as bags on a roll. Plain Mini grip/Self seal/Re-closable bags: Plain Self seal bags with interlocking closure that can be used over and over again. Ideal for when you want to secure contents and avoid leakage or contamination, no need to heat seal the bags. Block Bottom Bags: These are suitable for use as box liners where an exact fit is required. A common use for these bags is when powdered products are being packed and you do not want the product to gather in the folds of a normal gusseted bag.
