Pre-opened poly bags are intended to speed up a production line. They do this by cutting down on the time that it takes a person to pick and pack a product on an assembly line. They are meant to be paired with auto bagging machines that will either fully or partially automate your packaging process. They are also often paired with a non automated sealer such as a band sealer or hand sealer.
What gauge bag should I use?
Our thinnest pre opened bags are 1.5 mil in gauge. These are meant for lightweight applications where the object placed inside does not pose any risk of poking through the material.
Our 2 mil pre opened bags come in two different types. Completely clear or white on one side and clear on the other. Two mil is the most commonly used gauge and is what most folks will need. They are sturdy enough to keep most items inside and lightweight enough to not be a struggle to open.
Our 3 mil pre opened bags offer a bit more stiffness and ruggedness than our 2 mil ones. At 33% thicker these bags are meant to hold items which may pose a threat of tearing through a 2 mil thick bag. These bags are a little bit tougher to open but offer greater puncture resistance.
Finally our 4 mil pre opened bags on rolls are the heaviest duty we offer. These are typically used for applications where the object inside may have sharp or jagged edges which will frequently compromise a bag of lesser gauge.
