How bags are made
All polyethylene bags start the manufacturing process using blown-film extrusion technology.
First polyethylene resin pellets are mixed with dyes and other additives to create the “mix”. This is then piped into the extruders which melt the mix and forces the liquid material through a die and blows this into a large bubble with uniform material thickness. Processing equipment flattens the bubble before commencing the conversion and finishing processes.
Finishing includes heat sealing the bottoms of the bags, stamping out the shape of the bag and/or perforating the material film where tear off rolls are required. Closure mechanisms (such as re-sealable zips or other designs) are added as required for the particular design at this stage.
Finally the bags are packed in boxes, flow wrap outers or in the case of bin liners and refuse sacks into roles, before packing in cases and pallets ready for shipment.
