Polypropylene for Air Tight Packaging

Polypropylene Polypropylene containers are commonly used for medical supplies. When you go to the doctor’s office and they remove a fresh syringe or tongue depressor from its packaging, chances are the packaging is made of polypropylene. That is because polypropylene is air tight, won’t leak chemicals over time, is waterproof, and can easily be shaped to accommodate any object.

Even if your business has nothing to do with medical supplies, you can benefit from polypropylene bags and other polypropylene packaging. Anything perishable can have its shelf life extended by poly packaging. Things that are sensitive to moisture or other contaminants can also be protected by polypropylene.

Polypropylene can also easily be coated or combined with other materials. Packaging for some electronics makes use of poly bags coated with an anti-static chemical. Other packages blend poly with fabric to create something soft to the touch but still affordable and durable.

You should talk to a plastic manufacturer about meeting your packaging needs. Polypropylene is a very versatile material. An expert can walk you through the package design process and explain a bit more to you about your options. Don’t be afraid to choose a few examples of plastic packaging already on the market and ask for something similar.

Bakery Bags

poly bagsThe food service industry is among the most difficult to find success in. Competition is fierce and today’s consumer has a sophisticated palate. Baking is especially precarious because your products have such a short shelf life. Bakeries that cannot sell or package their goods the same day often throw them out. Even the most delicate meat and fish lasts longer than 24 hours! That is why making sure you have packing bags is important.

Poly bags can dramatically increase the shelf life of your products. The extra time they keep baked goods fresh can be the difference between being able to send such goods to a new state overnight and having to send them to the dump at night. Packaging items right as they leave the oven locks in the fresh bakery aroma and keeps baked goods moist and fresh.

If your local bakery started to develop a reputation, you need to get poly bags for your baked goods. It is the key to getting into new, distant markets. Some of America’s biggest bakeries started as small town, single operations. Maybe your company could be next? It’s all a matter of making sure people can try your products at the peak of freshness.
