Routinely added to film and bags to keep the sheets from sticking together.
Contains an anti-static additive that dissipates static electrical charges. Good for short-term storage.
Bags on a Roll
Continuous roll of tubing perforated under bottom seal. Bags must be torn off to open.
Specially formulated film typically used to extend the shelf life of
food products. Prevents transmission of moisture and gases.
The most common method of producing film
and bags. Resin is melted in the extrusion process and blown vertically into a
bubble to cool.
Bottom Seal Bags
Individually cut bags from seamless tubing, sealed on the bottom.
Flat or side gusseted bags with a strong seal – usually have a tail.
Extruded in sheet form through a slotted die.
Side-weld bag, staple-packed with perforated lip and hole just below the top of the bag.
Ethylene Vinyl Acetate. Additive that strengthens and improves
sealability. Appropriate for use in cold-temperature applications.
Provides both interior and exterior protection from static and other charges.
Bag has lip folded back with side seals. Commonly known as a sandwich bag.
Two-dimensional bag (width x length) with bottom and/or side seals.
Print that is solid colored - also known as line art. Each color requires a separate plate to
print a solid color.
A resin additive used to increase the tensile strength, impact strength, abrasion resistance,
and tear properties of poly bags and films.
The thickness of material. The higher the gauge, the thicker the material. (1/1000 inch = 100 gauge)
Flat style bag with both sides or bottom tucked in to form gussets.
Designated with three dimensions; Side Gusset (width x depth x length) or Bottom
Gusset (width x length + gusset).
Side-weld bag with continuous seal along top, 2"-3" below fold. Bag
is loaded and sealed from the bottom and typically has a hang hole.
High Density Polyethylene
Strong, but lightweight plastic film with gas, vapor, and moisture barrier properties.
Hot Stamp Printing
Thermal bonding process that results in the permanent adhesion of the print to the bag.
Linear Low Density Polyethylene
Highly puncture and tear resistant plastic film.
One side of the bag is longer than the other; allows bag to open easily.
Low Density Polyethylene
The most common type of plastic film used for bags because of its versatility, strength, and resistance to punctures and tears.
Extremely lightweight, flexible and highly stretchable plastic film with excellent puncture and tear resistance.
The thickness of material. The higher the microns, the stronger the material. (1/1000 inch = 25.4 microns)
The thickness of material. The higher the mil, the stronger the material. (1/1000 inch = 1 mil)
Unbleached paper in its natural form - brown in color.
High clarity and lightweight plastic film with vapor and moisture barriers to preserve food freshness.
Colors are reproduced by printing overlapping dots of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK)
inks to simulate a large number of different colors.
A repeating print that appears in full on a bag at least once. A partial print may be visible
on either side of the full print.
Seal-top reclosable and reusable bags can be made with or without a tamper-evident
adhesive seal. Also includes zipper and slider zipper bags.
The print shows up in the same spot on every bag in a production run.
Bags are sealed on the side. No bottom seal.
Additive that helps prevent bags from sticking to each other and promotes
easy insertion of packaged goods.
Strongest bottom seal for liners that combines four sections in a
star design. Seal maximizes carrying capacity.
Four layer construction providing Faraday Cage protection. Offers greater protection than anti-static.
Bags with no side seals or slit seals that are usually bottom sealed and have a tail.
Ultra Violet Inhibitor. Additive diminishes the effect of sunlight breaking up the film and extends film life in sunlight conditions.
Tear-off bags held in place by a metal wicket on the lip of the bag.
