I only want a very small quantity - do you have a minimum order quantity?

 

If it’s a general type of polybag or sheeting we can usually supply the amount you want whether it’s small or bulk quantity, with our extensive stock range we can usually find something exact or close to the specification required. 

 

If it’s more specialist, e.g. a particularly small or large bag, specific colour and print then we would work out the minimum quantity for bespoke manufacture.

I’m considering using Recycled Polythene (RGPE) what's the difference in

quality compared to VirgiPE?


There’s no difference in thickness however Virgin has better tensile strength being a single batch rather than a multi-batch polymer product. RGPE is suitable for most uses apart from food use, it is ideal for rubble sacks, dust collector bags, general waste sacks, builders sheeting, refuse sacks compactor sacks and pallet hoods.

 

RGPE affect the clarity of the polythene?  


Recycled polythene, depending on the thickness, is usually slightly cloudier.

Is it compatible with Food Grade specifications?

 

Recycled polythene should not be used if it would have direct contact with food products, as the ‘raw material’ source cannot always be confirmed and is therefore deemed unfit for food or medical use.
