What is a polythene bag?

This type of lightweight polythene bag is 80 gauge thick (20 micron) and designed to protect items against dirt and moisture. With three sealed sides and the other end left open to be filled, these bags are intended to be secured with a heat sealer at a customisable length, although, as shown, the end can also be twisted and fastened with a neck tape. The products are manufactured from safe, non-toxic polythene, enabling them to be used for a range of different applications.

What sizes of polythene bags are supplied?

We offer 15 different sizes of these staple packaging products with their sizes in the table relating to the internal dimensions of the bags in order of width (opening) x length. There is a manufacturing tolerance of +/- 5% in relation to these dimensions. As a result, we recommend including some tolerance when selecting your bag or choosing a size larger than your required measurements to ensure that the goods fit as expected.
