Industries that use polyethylene bags

The characteristics of polyethylene bags make them one of the most widely used products in various industries. Learn about the industries that use polyethylene bags and the different applications that can make their processes easier.

Polyethylene bags for the food industry

One of the main industries that benefit from polyethylene bags is the food industry, as they are used for the storage of food products and the preservation of their properties.

 

The food industry employs polyethylene bags to protect products from exposure to weather conditions that may affect their shelf life. The material of these bags is designed to prevent moisture and other contaminants from coming into contact with food, creating a barrier that reduces or eliminates the oxygen transmission rate.

 

Similarly, polyethylene bags have the flexibility and strength required for the freezing of products, as well as for containing liquids without the risk of spills.

They allow for better control of stored food by labeling or printing certain specifications such as batch, expiration date, or other important information.

 

Polyethylene bags made from FDA-certified raw materials, used in this industry, are specially designed to ensure that food remains free from any contaminants that could compromise its quality.

Polyethylene bags for the packaging industry

The packaging industry also stands out as one of the sectors with the highest consumption and use of polyethylene bags, as they are highly useful products for the storage and transportation of various materials or items.

 

With these types of bags, packaging companies can protect the products they are going to transport so that they can reach their final destination without any damage. They can be used to store all kinds of materials, thanks to their insulating properties and resistance to environmental and chemical agents.

 

They also allow for the classification and separation of products during storage in logistics centers. This way, handlers can more easily identify merchandise during the picking and packing process, maintaining its protection at all times.

Characteristics of transparent polyethylene bags

In addition to the characteristics mentioned earlier about polyethylene bags, other beneficial features for companies that use them can be listed. Here are their main properties:

Elongation:

Low-density polyethylene bags are highly flexible, allowing them to pack different shapes and sizes of products, making them ideal for transportation.

Transparency:

Having low-density polyethylene bags provides transparency, which offers a significant visual advantage that many companies leverage. When packing and creating kits of their products for commercialization, it's important to ensure that the contents can be seen.

 

This way, companies can quickly and easily identify the items they are packaging for shipping and marketing. This facilitates better control of merchandise and can also be important for users receiving these products, as they can immediately check if their orders arrived in good condition at their homes.

Water resistance:

As mentioned earlier, these bags are made of polyethylene, which provides them with certain waterproof properties, offering adequate protection to all types of products, especially those that must be kept free from any exposure to moisture.

This characteristic makes polyethylene bags one of the essential items for packaging highly sensitive products such as electronics, food, and more.

Breaking Point:

The strength of these bags is perhaps one of the most prominent properties, as it is highly useful for various uses in different contexts and sectors.

 

This characteristic may vary depending on the type of polyethylene used for manufacturing, its quality, the thickness of the bags, as well as environmental factors. However, they are designed to withstand heavy loads and tensions even when made of lightweight material.

 

The breaking point of polyethylene bags will vary depending on their gauge, as some will have a higher or lower breaking point depending on this characteristic. However, under normal conditions of use, they are products that do not easily break.

Customization:

Unlike other packaging methods, polyethylene bags can be customized, in addition to being manufactured in different sizes, shapes, and colors. As mentioned, they offer companies the possibility of having their logos, brand slogans, or promotional prints on their polyethylene bags.

 

This way, not only does your brand stand out from the competition, but you can also have polyethylene bags manufactured exclusively for your campaigns or to promote a particular product.

What are polyethylene bags?

Polyethylene bags are bags made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or low-density polyethylene (LDPE) plastic. Either of these two raw materials provides them with characteristics such as elongation, tension, and breaking point in relation to their measurements and gauges.

These widely used bags not only differ in terms of their attributes depending on their manufacture but can also vary in terms of costs, versatility, and durability due to the type of material they are made from.

Biodegradable plastic bags

Technological innovations have allowed our plastic and polyethylene bags, in addition to being highly resistant and lightweight, to also be designed to reduce waste generation, as they have properties that enable them to degrade in the environment at a faster rate.


"The difference between high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE) bags"

Different types of polyethylene bags can be obtained, classified according to the type of polyethylene with which they were manufactured.

The main difference lies in their molecular structures, as high-density polyethylene is manufactured through an addition process where different units of ethylene are added resulting in a higher molecular density. This allows high-density polyethylene to be more rigid and resistant.

On the other hand, low-density polyethylene will be composed of branched structures of ethylene, which gives it the characteristic of greater flexibility and transparency compared to high-density polyethylene.

How to calculate the weight of a polyethylene bag?

Calculating the weight of a polyethylene bag may seem complicated at first, but it’s quite straightforward once you understand the basic concepts. The first thing to know is that the weight of a polyethylene bag depends on three main factors: the dimensions of the bag (height, width, and, in some cases, thickness), the density of the material (polyethylene, which may vary slightly depending on the type), and the formula that relates these variables.

Here’s a practical formula for calculating the weight of a polyethylene bag:

  1. Bag dimensions: You’ll need to know the dimensions of the bag in meters (m) or centimeters (cm). If the bag is a rectangle, it will be the length and width. If it has a bottom or is of another type, it may be a bit more complex, and you’ll need to calculate the total area of material used.
  2. Material thickness: The thickness of the bag, usually given in microns (one micron is equal to 0.000001 meters or 0.001 millimeters). This data is crucial because the greater the thickness, the greater the weight of the bag.
  3. Polyethylene density: The density of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is typically around 0.92 g/cm³, while that of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) is approximately 0.96 g/cm³. This density tells you how much a specific volume of the material weighs.
  4. Calculation: First, calculate the volume of the bag by multiplying the area by the thickness (remember to convert everything to the same unit, preferably meters or centimeters). Then, multiply this volume by the density of the material to obtain the weight.

The general formula would be:

Weight = Width × Length × Thickness × Density

Where the width and length are in meters (m), the thickness in meters (m) (remember to convert from microns to meters), and the density in grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³), although you’ll need to adjust the units to match.

What is polyethylene used for?

Polyethylene is primarily used in the manufacturing of packaging, containers, and construction products due to its strength and flexibility. It is also essential in agriculture and in the production of toys and automotive components, thanks to its durability and lightweight nature.

Is it easy to recycle polyethylene?

Yes, polyethylene is one of the easiest plastics to recycle, thanks to its ability to be reprocessed multiple times without losing its properties, which allows it to be used in the creation of new products, reducing environmental impact.

How resistant is polyethylene?

Polyethylene is highly resistant to moisture, chemicals, and physical wear, making it ideal for applications that require durability, such as packaging, construction products, and more, with its resistance varying depending on the type (high or low density).

Most common measurements of transparent plastic bags

The most common measurements of plastic or polyethylene bags vary depending on their use, but generally include sizes such as 20×30 cm, 30×40 cm, and 40×50 cm for domestic and commercial applications.

In the industry, dimensions can be larger, adapting to specific needs such as storage or transportation of large volumes of products.

Trash bags are usually larger, ranging in size from 50×70 cm to 80×110 cm, depending on their capacity and intended use.
