Sealing products in a protective plastic bag can be vital for ensuring they reach their destination safely and securely. Whether you’re utilising our cost-effective layflat tubing to create your own bags, or if you’re using pre-made polythene bags that need sealing, our various standard and impulse heat sealers can save you time and effort. A practical and simple method to conveniently contain products, a sealed bag will provide some extra protection to their contents by keeping them free from dirt, dust, and moisture. Plus, it helps to keep products secure from the sudden bumps and shocks of transit.
Polythene heat sealer are packaging tools that are used to melt layers of plastic film together. As a result, the 2 separate sides will seal together and form a bag or a sleeve which can cover and protect your products. Usually the plastic sheet is naturally cut by the heat, but if you’re looking for a more professional, neater edge, you should consider purchasing a hand held heat sealer, or a table top heat sealer, with a built in cutter.
What should I use?
The frequency and number of bags you need sealing will play an important part in what sort of heat sealer you would need in your business. For smaller businesses that are dealing with a lower production line, a hand held heat sealer machine or a hand held impulse heat sealer may be all you need to efficiently handle a lower number of bags. An economical solution to quickly sealing your bags, these devices are designed for maximum convenience and efficiency.
For higher production scales that require more user input, our range of industrial heat sealers are a perfect alternative as you handle higher quantities. If you’re truly looking to maximise the speed of production, one of our Opti-seal industrial impulse heat sealers takes only a few seconds to melt the plastic together as it applies heat through the dedicated element wire.
Which material do I need?
Even if your product range includes different formats and sizes, or if you’re handling awkward or unorthodox shapes, you can create a bag to fit your dimensions. With layflat tubing, there are various strengths to choose from (calculated in microns), which means you can hold everything from lightweight products to heavy duty goods. All you need to do is use your chosen heat sealer and apply at the required bag measurements – a great choice for any business. Or, if you need to save time and you have a similar size across your range, our polythene bags are great for bulk goods. With the same great benefits, the wide selection of sizes makes them ideal for businesses that need to package similar shaped items en masse. Simply choose the correct micron, opening and width, insert your products, then create a complete seal with a heat sealer.
