☆Poly Bag Tip of the Week☆

When dealing with poly plastic film, there are two standard metrics for the thickness or gauge of the film: Mils and Microns. 1 Mil equals 1/1000 of an inch, and is used for the vast majority of the flexible packaging products. Low density polyethylene film ranges in thickness from 0.75 Mil to 8 Mils. With certain products, such as PVC stretch film or Cellophane, you might see the thickness expressed as "100 Gauge Stretch Film". For these products, 100 Gauge equals 1 Mil, and 80 gauge = 0.8 Mil. For thicknesses less than 1 Mil, Microns are often used to express thickness. A Micron is 1/1,000,000 of a meter, or 1/1,000 of a millimeter, and 1 Mil equals 25.4 Microns. High density polyethylene film can range from 6 Microns to 2 or 3 Mils. 13 Microns is about 1/2 a Mil, for example. Whether it's Mils or Microns, we can help you find the right gauge and the right bag to suit your needs! Give us a call at 800-322-0042!

We're not in the "poly bag business" - we're in the customer service business!

As a distributor and manufacturer's representative for the best flexible packaging products on earth, of course our main focus tends to be on supplying poly bags and the like. But that is not all we do! We are constanly expanding our capabilities to include related products and services to our customers.

A. We produce many made-to-order bags - custom-printed or without printing. (By the way, we just added the capability to provide rapid-turn custom bags with random repeat 1-color printing - most orders will ship within 3 weeks!)

B. We also have stocking programs for certain customers, where we keep their made-to-order items on hand, and ship on an as needed, just-in-time, basis. Because our customers asked, we expanded into paper bags, shrink bags, sealers, and more.

C. We also provide packaging design and logistics services when needed and sometimes just some free advice. Just last week one of our regular customers called looking for a food scale. Although we don't sell scales, we took the time and effort to help him find the best source.

Our drive is to create more and more satisfied customers. So carrying that principal forward, we're ready to do what it takes to serve you!

☆Poly Bag Tip of the Week☆
Here are some guidelines to selecting trash can liners...

Construction Debris
--------You need a heavy duty bag. Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) High Gauge (4 Mil to 6 Mil) will do the job.
Broken Glass
---------LDPE in a Medium to High Gauge (3 Mil to 6 Mil) will provide good puncture resistance.
Items with Sharp Corners
---------LDPE in a Low Gauge (1.5 Mil to 2 Mil) should suffice.
Lawn Trimmings and Sticks
---------LDPE, Low Gauge or Linear Low Density (LLDPE) Medium Gauge (0.78 Mil to 1.3 Mil)
Rough Food Waste (bones, crab legs, sharp metal lids)
---------LLDPE Low to Medium Gauge (0.48 Mil to 0.98 Mil)
General Food Waste
---------LLDPE Low Gauge, High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Medium to High Gauge (13 Microns to 22 Microns)
Newspapers/Magazines
---------HDPE High Gauge (16 Microns to 22 Microns)
Rags/Linens
---------HDPE Medium to High Gauge (13 Microns to 22 Microns)
Office Waste
---------HDPE Low to Medium Gauge (6 Microns to 13 Microns)
Tissue
---------HDPE Low Gauge (6 Microns to 10 Microns)


Generally speaking for maximum strength and puncture resistance, go with higher gauge LDPE, for good strength in a lighter weight film, move toward LLDPE or HDPE. Questions? Just give us a call!
