Poly Films

From contractors to couriers, the public relies on poly films to get the job done every single day. Polyethylene or plastic film for packaging has a wide variety of uses – it can be used as an airtight seal or as a cushioning agent. It is ideal for packaging any item that should be self-contained or protected. Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer with variable crystalline structure and an extremely large range of applications depending on the particular type. The plastic film is made by melting plastic pellets and extruding the molten poly into film. Poly film can be custom manufactured to any specifications such as thickness, widths, and colors.

Films are made for a variety of uses depending on the packaging goal. Some film is converted into bags, while other film is used for packaging material. Here are some examples of the different ways poly films are used:

  • – Closing Off Rooms for Remodeling
  • – Waterproofing Ponds, Lakes, Canals
  • – Coverings for Outdoor Equipment, Wood Piles, Furniture
  • – Packaging Buffers
  • – Securing Pallets of Products
