Packaging Bags

Packaging bags or pouches are a type of primary packaging generally used for holding frozen food, fresh produce, snack foods, hardware, gardening products, etc. There are various type of packaging bags available with different shape, sizes ans styles. Design of these bags depend on the requirement of the products to be packaged. It may have gussets to allow higher volume of contents. There are some designs that make it suitable for the packaged products to stand up on a shelf or a refrigerator. Features like easy-opening or reclosable options are also available with packaging bags. To make it more user friendly, handles can be added or cut into these bags.

Packaging bags are produced by cutting a larger material sheet into individual portions and folding each of these individual pieces to form a main body having a front wall, a back wall, side walls which stand up from a flat bottom. A lid for closing the upper opening is uniformly sloped upward from the front wall to the back wall. A ridge is formed, extending upward from the back wall, for sealing the bag closed. A trapezoidally folded flap extends upward from the back wall and is folded forward over the seal ridge. A pair of fastening tapes is used to keep the flap detachably attached to the seal ridge such that the bag, after it is once opened, can be closed again. Instead of the fastening tapes, an elongated member serving like a belt loop may be used to keep the flap retractably inserted under it to keep the flap closed.

Bubble film & Bags
Bubble wrap is a flexible plastic sheeting containing numerous small air pockets, used in cushioning items during shipment. Standard average bubble diameter is 6.0 - 25.4 mm and height about 4 mm. Bubble wrap is lightweight, water resistant, reusable non-scratching. And, Commonly used for packing fragile items. Also called 'bubble pack'.

Bubble wrap which protects items during shipping and for storage are generally available in different types and sizes. This depends on the size of the object being packed, as well as the level of cushioning protection needed. Carrier Bags
Carrier BagsCarrier bag is a bag made of paper or plastic for holding customer's purchases. It is also known as 'shopping bag' and 'retail bag'. Carrier bags are mainly made from paper or plastic. Nowadays, most plastic carrier bags are made of polyethylene (low-density or more "crinkly" high-density). Plastic bags hold up better than paper bags when wet, such as in rain. Plastic bags are commonly reused as either garbage bags, or can be recycled along with other plastic containers.

Types of Carrier Bags Clear Polythene Bags
Polythene BagsPopular Clear Polythene bags are often made from Low density polythene. Clear Polythene bags has a open top and also referred as 'Clear Polybags'. Clear Polythene bag is designed to handle a wide variety of packaging needs. The bags can also be heat sealed or secured with bag ties to provide security and/or retain freshness. Dimensions usually represent the interior usable portion of the bag.

Clear Polythene bags are used for every needs. Commonly for storing parts and protecting objects from dust and moisture. Other uses include to store small parts, kitting supplies, food, photographic paper, metal fasteners, hardware, auto parts and medical devices.

Biodegradable BagsDegradable & Biodegradable bags
Conventional plastics do not break down. Litter and landfill waste take years, even decades, to degrade. Litter is visual pollution, an eyesore that regulations and educational programs have failed to eliminate. In landfills, not only do ordinary plastics degrade very slowly but also anything contained within them may not reach their full degradation potential. This results in a needless waste of valuable landfill space.

Therefore, Degradable/Biodegradable bags are developed to make your daily tasks of waste reduction easier, safer and better for the environment.

Common materials used for Biodegradable/degradable film: High Tensile Bags
High Tensile BagsHigh Tensile bags/film have improved strength properties compared to standard polybags/polythene film at a given thickness therefore saves material and cost. High tensile bags/film are also known as 'HT' or 'high strength' bags/film. This bags are highly popular in meat/food packaging industry. HT bags are ideal where extra bag strength or thickness reduction is required.

Common materials used for 'High Tensile'(HT) bags: Plastic bags
Plastic bags also called "poly bags" are shaped like two identically-sized rectangular plastic sheets (usually less than 250 micron thickness) fused together on three of the sides, with one side left for the opening. Most Plastic bags are made from polyethylene - more commonly known as polythene, which is made from crude oil and natural gas, non-renewable resources. The most common way to produce polythene bags is by blown film extrusion, also called the "tubular film process."
