Layflat tubing, our continuous roll of polythene tubing is a great alternative to polythene bags and offers maximum flexibility of bag size
Used extensively in packing departments, factories and warehouses to produce custom polythene bags, layflat polythene tubing protects products from dust and dirt during manufacture, processing and transit.
Allows air to escape the bag, and greatly helps palletisation
Extended protection against sunlight
Improved adhesion for inks, labels and tapes
A vast variety of film colours
Advanced print design, EC logo or usage instructions
Also known as LFT, polythene tubing or poly tubing, layflat tubing is a polythene tubing wound onto a role for continuous use. It is used extensively in packing departments, factories and warehouses to produce custom polythene bags. This flexible polythene tubing is a great alternative to polythene bags and offers maximum flexibility of bag size. Simply insert your product into the tubing, cut to length and either heat seal, tie, staple or tape both ends to make a made-to-measure polythene bag.
All tubing is water resistant and available in whatever gauge you need from 25µm to 250µm for maximum protection and efficient processing. Our Palagan range of anti-static layflat tubing prevents the build-up of static electricity and offers flexible protective packaging for your sensitive electronic products. All our layflat poly tubing is made from Palagan high quality polythene to give strength and clarity.
We manufacture the most commonly used polythene tubing from 350mm to 3,100mm wide.
Layflat tubing is a continuous length of film that creates custom bags of almost any shape and size. It protects products from dust and dirt during manufacture and transit. For added security, layflat tubing can be sealed with either a heat sealer or bag ties. Our Palagan layflat tubing is wound onto a core and can be customised to almost any length or width. All tubing is rotated before winding to ensure even winding tension.
Gusseted layflat tubing
Palagan’s gusseted layflat tubing is similar to continuous layflat tubing with the addition of two gusseted panels. These gusseted panels give the tubing a rectangular profile. This means that it is able to open wider than layflat tubing and therefore able to accommodate larger products.
We customise all our layflat polythene tubing to exact customer specifications. Static levels, stiffness, strength, winding tension and slip levels are just some of the factors that can greatly affect the performance of the tubing you use. We adjust these properties and develop bespoke films to maximise your output and minimise your packaging costs. We can manufacture any colour layflat tubing printed your own design. When this tubing is used with heat sealing equipment, it can be cut and sealed across its width to create bags and pouches.
