Plastic Bags (Grocery-Type)

Plastic Bags, Film, Pallet Wrap and Shrink Wrap

Plastic bags are made out of “film”, or thin flexible sheets of plastic. Plastic film is typically defined as any plastic less than 10 mm thick. The most plastic films are made from polyethylene resin and are readily recyclable if the material is clean, dry, and not pigmented black.

Pallet wrap is made from polyethylene plastic and is mechanically stretched around a product. It is designed to adhere to itself (no adhesive is used though).

Shrink wrap is made from polyolefin plastic and is applied loosely around an item and then it is heated all over causing the wrap to shrink tightly around the product.
