Low Density Polyethylene Bags

Low Density Polyethylene bags (LDPE) are easy to recycle when looking for an eco-friendly grocery bag. LDPE carries recycling number 4. Due to its soft nature, it is more challenging to recycle and melt as it can get caught in machinery. Therefore, it is important to reuse LDPE bags several times to decrease their environmental impact. These bags can be reused several times, making it a popular choice across a wide range of industries. LDPE is defined as a thermoplastic created by polymerization of ethylene under high pressure. Low density materials are strong and typically used to create plastic bags for food packaging and utility bags. LDPE bags are often found at restaurants or other food establishments seeking to package food items. LDPE bags are ideal for pharmaceutical packaging that is often used in hospitals or other medical institutions. Butchers, food suppliers, and dry cleaners turn to LDPE bagging solutions because they are cost-effective, and items can be seen through the bags. LDPE materials can also be used to create stretch films, produce bags, and garment bags. Their transparent material allows the product to be shown. LDPE bags have many advantages and can help your industry provide the best products to your consumers.

LDPE is a type of polyolefin material with high molecular weight. Like other polyolefins, LDPE is a non-polluting, non-toxic material that has excellent resistance against cracking. Lightweight yet durable, LDPE film is chemical resistant, ideal for laboratories, and boasts an opalescent and translucent appearance while maintaining its softness. Its strength is less than HDPE (high density polyethylene), yet its impact is greater than HDPE. Additionally, LDPE film is equally resistant to low and high temperatures, its thicker film allowing it to withstand disinfection procedures by immersion in hot water up to 90 degrees Celsius. The moisture resistance of LDPE film is stellar. It remains stable and insoluble in solvents. Another feature of LDPE bags is its vast air permeability. Food can be easily stored in LDPE bags for short periods of time to maintain its freshness. LDPE is not suitable for freezing temperatures or very high temperatures, such as freezers or microwaves. LDPE is best used at room temperature.

The manufacturing process of the LDPE bag requires low tensile strength and produces a light end product. LDPE bags have a low melting point, making these bags ideal for applications of heat sealing. This lightweight material allows for transparency and is manufactured into strong grocery bags of different sizes and colors, which have multiple uses, and are cheap to purchase. These bags are available in bulk to drive down the cost of each LDPE bag. This is helpful to grocery stores and other retailers that use these bags. These flexible grocery bags are also safe for the placement of food products. This is an important fact for grocery store owners because they are handling food daily.

Another quality that many LDPE bags boast is their UV resistance. This is important if the bag is going to be used for an item that will be left outside. An example is a phonebook being placed in a bag when it is delivered to a home. A phonebook in a bag will be exposed to the elements especially the sun. It may also rain and if the bag is outside, it will get wet, but the product inside will remain safe. LDPE bags are waterproof, as well. This makes them the perfect option for many different uses. These bags are commonly used for food packaging and cleaning supplies due to their clear optics, excellent flexibility, and soft feel. The high barrier LDPE bags ensure the utmost protection from environmental contaminants, such as airborne particles and viruses. LDPE bags also provide superior protection against chemical leakage.

Regular polybags are manufactured from plastic and generally used for packaging and shipping. Polybags are lightweight, recyclable, and can be utilized for many purposes. They are made with recyclable materials limiting their overall environmental impact. Polybags are ideal and convenient for industrial and domestic usage. There are polybags available in a wide range of colors, sizes, and printed logos which you can easily use for commercial purposes. Our LDPE polybags are FDA-approved and compliant with the regulations as set forth by the FDA. Another popular option are our gusseted polybags, which are highly suitable for storing goods in bulk and in larger quantities. Our classic, flat bags are less suitable for this purpose.

These bags can easily be customized with a store name and logo. Logos serve as a means of communicating business information and advertising. LDPE bags also have a recyclable symbol to show that it is recyclable. Many people find this appealing because they feel they are doing what they can to help eliminate waste from the environment. Using LDPE bags allows people the opportunity to reuse these bags, too. Sometimes, LDPE bags really come in handy, whether in the home or in business settings. Customers will always find ways to use these bags.
