Extrusion

All our products, as standard, are manufactured as natural, clear polythene. However upon request we can produce a wide spectrum of coloured polythene ranging from red and blue to yellow and black.

Additives can also be added to create the perfect product for the customer. There are six main additives which we use and can be seen following:

Volatile Corrosive Inhibitor (VCI) - This additive acts as an anti-corrosive inhibitor, to protect ferrous, non-ferrous and noble metals by coating the metal in a thin protective layer once the bag is sealed and once the bag is opened, the layer evaporates and leaves a clean metal surface.

Anti Static - This additive reduces the amount of static produced by the bag to prevent it from becoming ‘sticky’ and also making them easier to handle.

UVI Stabiliser - This additive prevents the polythene from become perished and damaged by the sun.

High Slip/Anti Block - This additive enables for easier opening to ensure that the customer is able to function at a high production speed.

Biodegradable - This additive is where we use different materials, which allows microorganisms to break down the bags after use into biomass, carbon dioxide and water. This is an excellent solution to environmental packaging.

Colour Masterbatch - We have a wide range of different colours,
which can be added to the polythene to suit your specific needs

Tubing- 50mm upwards
Lay Flat Tubing - Lay flat tubing is a desired length of polythene tub, which is flattened and wound onto a cardboard core. The rolls can be manufactured to suit the packaging needs.

Gusseted Lay Flat Tubing  - Gusseted lay flat tubing is similar to lay flat tubing, however once opened it has a rectangular profile. This means that it is able to open wider than lay flat tubing and therefore able to accommodate larger products.

Sheet- 50mm upwards
Single Wound Sheet -A single sheet of polythene made to the requirements, wound onto a cardboard core.

Double Wound Sheet - A double sheet of polythene made to
the requirements, wound onto a cardboard core.

Centre Folded Sheet - A centre wound sheet is similar to a double wound sheet, however the sheet is folded on one side, which creates a double width sheet. The polythene is wound onto a cardboard core, which makes it ideal for packaging larger items.

J-Folded Sheet  - A J-Folded sheet is a variation on a centre wound sheet. This is where a section of the upper sheet is removed to create a pre formed lip and creating a different in the dimensions between the upper and lower web.

Wrap
Stretch Wrap - Stretch wrap is a layer of polythene, which has been wound onto a cardboard core. The polythene is stretchy, therefore as the package is wrapped. A force must be applied to stretch the wrap around the package and hold it safely.

Shrink Wrap - Shrink wrap is a layer of polythene wound onto a cardboard core. The polythene is then wrapped around the package and then exposed to heat. The heat causes the wrap to shirk tightly to the package its been wrapped around.

Bubble Wrap - Bubble wrap is a double layer of polythene, which has had air bubbles trapped between the two layers. This is perfect for packaging, as it protects the product due to the layer of air bubbles.
