Heavy or inflexible materials have no business in a packaging solution since they make it harder to package products or move bagged items easily. One of the best things about our poly tubing packaging is its lightweight features that make it easy to unspool from the roll, cut, pack, and transport or display.
This is good news not only for your wallet, since our lightweight poly tubing can help keep shipping costs down, but it also has a better impact on your business’s carbon footprint because it takes less effort and manpower to transport your products.
2. Holds Non-Standard-Sized Products
Another reason why retail or industrial operations like to use durable poly tubing is due to its ability to hold non-standard size items that have a uniform circumference.
For example, 6 Mil density poly tubing is an excellent option for packaging small industrial parts, screws, nails, or even sharp kitchenware products like scissors or knives.
Since poly tubing can be cut to any length and remains open at both ends until sealed, it is an excellent solution for packing items that are difficult to fit into other kinds of bags. This means that you can sheathe thick, heavy, long, or bulky-shaped items with sturdy protective film without trying to squeeze or wrestle it into a traditional bag.
3. Protects without Sacrificing Clarity
It’s simple to make and seal a bag within seconds using an impulse heat sealer, or even a twist tie, tape, or staple closure.
Many businesses prefer to use a heat sealer to enhance protection from moisture, wear and tear, and the elements during transport, storage, or display.

It’s fast, it’s easy, and it delivers optimal protective results.
