What is a medium duty polythene bag?
Polythene bags specified for medium duty usage are 200 gauge thick (50 micron). Comprised of three sealed edges and an opening, they can be loaded with your product before being fastened with either a heat sealer or bag neck sealer. The former is a highly sanitary method of sealing, guaranteeing protection against dirt, dust and moisture to keep the contents in immaculate condition.
What can polythene bags be packed with?This thicker variety of virgin plastic makes these bags suitable for heavier objects such as gifts, hardware and pet products. Any medium sized item that would benefit from an impeccable standard of cleanliness, will be reliably packaged within a heat sealed polythene bag. No outside germs or particles can enter the parcel, preserving the contents during transportation. The medium duty design is the most popular of all the gauges, largely due to its multi-purpose nature and versatility allowing it to be used with most general objects while keeping outgoing costs to a minimum.
