What Are Lay Flat Poly Bags?


Lay Flat Poly Bags offers easy and affordable packaging solutions to multiple industries to wrap and seal their products. Lay flat poly bags can be made from seamless tubing, or they can be made side sealed. Both the options offer the same high-quality sealing and strength. Lay flat poly bags have an open top and can be easily heat sealed, closed with tape, stapled, tied, or twist tied. In addition, flat poly bags are lightweight and flexible, offering protection from dust and scratches.

This makes them a great option for storing food items, hospital materials, electronic parts, and much more.

Construction and Materials of Lay Flat Poly Bags

Lay Flat  poly bags are commonly produced using Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) or Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE).  Bags made from High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Medium-Density Polyethylene (MDPE), or any combination of the above may also correctly be referred to as lay flat poly bags. Flat industrial poly bags are economical, offering a beneficial ratio of productivity to cost. Each lay flat poly bag is measured while lying flat and has two  dimensions: the width and  length .  Lay flat bags with less thickness, or lower "mil," are usually less expensive. While heavier gauges cost more, they are comparatively cheaper than any other packaging solution.
