Making Polythene Bags
Polythene carrier bags are made by heat sealing and cutting rolls of film, rolls of tubing or sheet are fed through a machine that draws material out to the proper length.
The machine then cycles to place a seal on the material and then cut it off to make an individual bag. In some cases, with small bags, machine cycle speeds may produce up to 70,000 bags per hour. In other instances, a large bag may run as slowly as 2,000 bags per hour.
Common materials used for Polythene carrier bags are;
Low density polythene
Medium density polythene
High density polythene
Liner blend polythene
180 Gauge(45microns) to 400 Gauge(100microns)
Polythene carrier bags can be used for many purposes and have good protective qualities, such as waterproofing and keeping dust and dirt away from the products that are put into them. They are also a good and cost effective branding vehicle.A company can have their logo printed up to 8 colours on each side of the bag, retailers especially like this benefit.
