When heat sealing flat bags make sure to use a sealer which is at least a 1/2 inch wider than the width of the bag. Use our thickness and material guide above to determine what type of sealer to use.

Ziplock Bags

Ziplock Bags

Ziplock bags have an area approximately a 1/2 inch wide above the zip which can be used to seal the bag. Sealer width needs to be at least a 1/h inch wider than the width of the bag.

Tubing

Tubing

Poly tubing requires a heat sealer with a cutter for efficient use. While the tubing maintains a predetermined width the length is cut and sealed at the needed length allowing the flexibility of creating a bag of any length.

Laminated Bags

Laminated Bags

Laminated bags are comprised of several layers of materials making it necesary to use a sealer with at least a 5mm width seal on it. This will help ensure that you get the best seal possible.

Vacuum Bags
