LDPE plastic is widely used in the packaging industry because of its lightweight, flexible, moisture-proof, durable, and transparent properties. It is a preferred choice for packaging goods because it can easily be moulded into desired shapes and provides protection during transportation. LDPE can be used to manufacture various items such as pallet covers, shrink films, stretch wrap films, LDPE bags and more.
What are the benefits of LDPE bags?
- Low tensile strength and high flexibility – LDPE exhibits low density ranging from 0.917 to 0.930 g/cm, resulting in low tensile strength and high flexibility. It can be stretched significantly before breaking, making it suitable for applications like LDPE bags, bin bags, plastic film, and other forms of plastic packaging.
- Durability – Despite its low tensile strength, LDPE is remarkably durable and resilient to impacts, making it an excellent choice for packaging items that need to be protected.
- High chemical resistance – LDPE also exhibits a high level of chemical resistance, making it capable of withstanding exposure to various chemicals. This quality is particularly beneficial in the food industry, where LDPE bags can be used for food and beverage items. Furthermore, LDPE’s waterproofing capabilities make it ideal for preventing moisture and minimising the risk of chemical contamination. Additionally, LDPE plastic bags possess a low melting point, making them well-suited for heat-sealing different types of products. They also exhibit outstanding resistance to acids, alcohols, esters, bases, ketones, and oils.What’s more, LDPE plastic bags have the remarkable ability to withstand sterilisation chemicals such as gamma radiation and formaldehyde, which typically cause significant damage to other types of plastic bags.
