Layflat tubing, or more commonly known as polythene tubing, can be used to create a bag of virtually any size. Perfect for keeping the elements away from your products, you can easily seal polythene layflat tubing together to create a watertight and dust-proof seal. Clear plastic layflat tubing is ideal for protecting items while they sit in storage, or to improve a product’s presentation when they’re on your shop floor.
What types of layflat tubing is there?
At RAJA, we stock various lengths, widths, and thicknesses that can be used around almost every item. Simple and extremely cost-effective, a continuous length of polythene tubing is similar to a pre-made bag, except it needs to be sealed at both ends. Although this sounds like extra work, using a heat sealer to melt the plastic together takes only seconds to do. It even contracts as it cools, so the seal is pulled even tighter. Because layflat tubing is on long rolls, you aren’t restricted to the length of the product. All you need to do is pull it over the product, cut, then seal with heat.
If you’re sending confidential products, like components used in computing, then look at our stock of black coloured layflat tubing that can completely conceal a bag’s contents. The opaque material is ideal for maintaining the privacy of the item.
When you’re creating bags on an industrial scale, a layflat tubing dispenser can become a workplace essential. Portable and easy to instal, it’s ideal for frequent distribution of material for products that have similar dimensions and requirements.
Why use a heat sealer?
Once you’ve stocked up on your tubing, you need a way to ensure it can be sealed efficiently. Using a heat sealer for plastic tubing is similar to welding metal, except your base material is different. By applying the heat, the layflat tubing sealer fuses the two pieces of plastic together. When choosing a heat sealer for your workplace, be aware of how frequently you’ll be using it. If you’re only operating at low volumes and with smaller products then our hand held heat sealers will be enough. If you’re handling larger products and high volumes, then our industrial heat sealer will be able to maximise the efficiency of your production line. To help you maintain your equipment, we also stock spare kits to ensure your heat sealer lasts longer.
Can it be recycled?
At RAJA, we are always working to help businesses become more eco-responsible. Made from low-density polyethylene, the majority of the range can be recycled and converted into other items, such as our 100 micron recycled layflat tubing.
