About Gusseted Poly Bags on Rolls
Our gusseted poly bags on rolls and pallet sized shrink bags are FDA approved for direct contact with food under paragraph 177.1520 of Title 21CFR of the Code of Federal Regulations. Polyethylene is the number one choice for companies looking for a cost efficient product that offers greater puncture and tear resistance than other materials. As these bags are made from virgin polyethylene resin they are completely heat sealable.
What are industrial gusseted poly bags on rolls?
Industrial gusseted poly bags on rolls are typically used for warehouses, manufacturing, shipping, or packaging applications where the gusset on the bag facilitates either lining a box to protect items inside or covering the outside of a palletized load to help protect the boxes from the elements such as rain, dirt, or abrasions when these are being stored or moved. Our gusseted poly bags on rolls come on 3" cores which makes putting them on a dispenser easy facilitating the use of them.
How strong are industrial gusseted poly bags on rolls?
The strength of our gusseted poly bags on rolls is dictated by the gauge or "mil" of the bag which defines the thickness of the material used to manufacture them. Below we present a simple guide that will help you determine what gauge to use for most applications. If you are still unsure after this please contact us so we can assist you in identifying what thickness will work best.
1 Mil Gusseted Poly Bags on Rolls: These are our thinnest bags and are only meant for lightweight applications that will help protect from dirt and dust. We do not recommend these for any applications which will require protection from scuffs or abrasions. This is also an ideal gauge for cheap lightweight disposable liners. Their low cost makes them ideal for single use applications.
1.5 Mil Gusseted Poly Bags on Rolls: This is one of our most popular gauges. This is still a very thin gauge that is mostly used to protect from dirt and dust and being slightly thicker gives slightly better protection to abrasions than our 1 mil gusseted poly bags on rolls. As these are slightly stronger but still very economical they are also mainly made for single use applications.
2 Mil Gusseted Polys Bags on Rolls: This is our most popular gauge. Thick enough for most applications these bags provide the same protection from dirt, dust, and the elements as our 1 and 1.5 mil gusseted poly bags while offering superior tear and puncture resistence. These bags offer our best combination of protection and affordability making them the most common choice for many of our customers.
3 Mil Gusseted Poly Bags on Rolls: This is our entry level heavy duty gauge. Customers who are looking for a thick bag which is able to take a beating without breaking the bank will certainly want to take a look at our 3 mil thick gusseted poly bags. Due to their thickness these bags are often used for repeated applications. If you do not need a single use bag we recommend getting a thicker bag which you can use over and over again until it gives out.
4 Mil Gusseted Poly Bags on Rolls: These are our highest gauge bags meant for the toughest applications. Often used for applications with a need for a high abrasion resistant material or with excellent puncture strength these gusseted poly bags on rolls are the toughest we offer. They are also excellent for holding weight without any issues. Most people will not need a bag this tough but please reach out to us if you have any doubts on what gauge will work best for you.
What are pallet size shrink bags?
Pallet size shrink bags are large gusseted poly bags on a roll which have been specially designed to shrink when a specific amount of heat is applied to them. This allows you to tighten loads on the pallet keeping things in place and intact. Our pallet size shrink bags are meant to be used with a heat gun and are the toughest bags you can use for protecting your pallets or other loads in the elements.
