Polythene Packaging: Heavy-Duty vs Light-Duty Use

Our clear plastic packaging comes in a range of polythene forms to suit your various business needs - depending on what you need your packaging for! 

If you’re packing up small goods such as food types then you’ll likely find that our Clear Poly Bags are what you’re looking for - this polythene is made conforming to the highest safety standards so is suitable for keeping food fresh and contained. Similarly, our standard plastic carrier bags are great for carrying light shopping such as groceries or clothing which makes them a great versatile packaging solution for your business.

Or, If you’re looking for some polythene wrapping that’s a bit tougher for heavy-duty use then our Pallet Top Sheet Covers and Shrinkable Pallet Cover plastic wraps are sure to be in-line with your business needs. These are tougher and thicker plastic wraps designed for pallet and product protection from tampering, dust, and water damage. These plastic wraps and covers are particularly useful if your goods have a long journey across the globe where temperature changes and dusty conditions could damage your items - our polythene wrapping is designed to combat just that!

Why are polythene bags/poly bags so popular?

Not only are polythene carrier bags so lightweight but they’re also durable and easy to store thanks to the nature of their thin material.

The thin clear plastic material means that polythene wrapping is flexible enough to wrap around unique-shaped objects, especially our shrinkable pallet cover film that is excellent for keeping your goods safe, secure, and dust-free.

Is polythene the best plastic wrap packaging?
