POLYETHYLENE PLASTIC (PE)
Polyethylene is the most common plastic in use today and is primarily used for packaging.
Polyethylene is an inexpensive, durable, lightweight, and water resistant plastic that can withstand extreme temperatures. These qualities make polyethylene the ideal material for industrial packaging supplies.
HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE PLASTIC (HDPE)
High Density Polyethylene Plastic is non-porous and non-stretch. In its natural form it has a frosted appearance and makes a crackly/crinkly sound when crushed. It is stronger than LDPE but not as durable with regards to tear resistance. HDPE is mostly used for applications where a very thin cost effective bag is required.
LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE PLASTIC (LDPE)
Low Density Polyethylene is the most widely used material in plastic bags. LDPE is porous, strong, stretchable to a degree, it has a high tear resistance, has good clarity and is easy to print on. It is widely used in packaging applications for products that do not have sharp points.
LINEAR LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE PLASTIC (LLDPE)
Linear Low Density Polyethylene Plastic is a very stretchable, non-porous tear and puncture resistant material. It has good clarity and is commonly used for many packaging, liner and trash applications.
Metallocene is a very tough and extremely tear resistant additive to polyethylene. (Material that is manufactured using metallocene has a high clarity and exceptional strength).
Our extrusion versatility has capabilities ranging from 3 layer, 2 layer and monolayer tubing and sheeting, both narrow and wide.
Our Flexographic printing capabilities turns rolls of blank plastic film into visual representation of our clients brand and product.
We have an extensive bagmaking capacity both bottom and sideseal assuring speedy completion of orders placed.
