Reduced weight polythene

Polylite™ is a 3 layer laminated film which allows us to produce a thinner film whilst maintaining the required strength. Polylite™ is guaranteed to save you money and guaranteed to reduce your carbon footprint with 50% less waste material from a thinner plastic parcel bag.

The reduced weight of these plastic mailing bags means up to 50% lower raw material usage of an oil based product, lower transportation requirements and a high quality extrusion process combined with less overall extrusion. It also increases overall efficiency with fewer roll changes from the 50% more film capacity per roll.

Its lightweight material provides the same high puncture resistance and tensile strength and helps contribute to your green credentials by not only meaning you use less, it’s also quicker to degrade than standard poly.
