Polythene Rolls

Buy polythene rolls now.

Polythene rolls, also sold as layflat tubing, are flexible and economical. Polythene rolls offer a great solution when packing awkward items, items with same width but different lengths for instance. The plastic that comes in polythene rolls is made from a continuous tube normally less than 2.5mm thick polythene, but these might vary according to the strength needed. Heatsealers can also be used to seal the ends of tubing and provide a fully sealed enclosure. Polythene rolls can also be cut and made in to plastic sheeting that can be used for wrapping and covering objects. The plastic sheet on these rolls generally comes folded twice or four times depending on the width; the plastic itself can also be made transparent or coloured, single or multi-layered.

Polythene Manufacturing

Polythene film is produced using a blown film process. Plastic pellets are melted and then extruded through a circular die gap forming a plastic tube. The polythene tube is then cut open at one end, inflated and stretched to the desired size and thickness.

This process is used to manufacture polythene film that can be as thin as .0004 inch to thicknesses beyond .01 inch. Pellets containing pigment are blended with the clear pellets to give the polythene film various different colours. Good equipment that maintains a consistent flow of polythelene throughout the process will produce high quality film.

Layflat Tubing

Layflat tubing or film on the roll is a flexible and economical form of packaging. LFT is perfect for packing products of the same width but varying in height or long items. Layflat tubing is generally provided in as a roll of continuous film.

Shrink Covers

Shrink wrap, or shrink film, is made with high strength shrink grade polythene film. Ideal for warehousing to use as pallet covers. After shrink film is heated it will shrink tightly leaving no gaps or holes on the packaging perfect to protect whatever it covers.

Stretch Wrap

Stretch wrap, also know as pallet raps, is another great way to protect items. As the name says, work differently than shrink film but offer just as much protection. Stretch wrap is pulled around the load and stretched providing a elastic band effect that will hold the load tight together. Pallet wraps offer excellent load holding force and puncture resistance to protects your goods during warehousing and transport.

Damp Proof Sheeting

Damp proof sheets are plastic membranes used in construction to provide with a base for a concrete floor. This waterproof sheet is laid between the insulation layer and the sand base, and offers the concrete protection against damp.
