Standard Grey Mailing Bags
Mailing bags are an efficient way of packaging items that do not need padded protection in transit. They are quick and easy to use, waterproof, economical, light and take up little storage space. Our mailing bags are coextruded which essentially laminated two layers of polythene together to give a high quality strong, tear-resistant, opaque mailing bag.
We hold a wide range of mailing bag sizes in various colours to suit most packaging requirements. We also stock Sealed Air's Mail Tuff ® Mailing Bag range which provide one of the best mailing bags on the market giving a high quality, secure and lightweight method of posting your items.
All of our mailing bags are 100% recyclable and our grey mailing bags are made with a minimum of 70% recycled materials. Polythene mailing bags are still an environmentally sound choice for packaging. They require much lower energy levels to manufacture than any paper based packaging whilst providing a lightweight waterproof product. They are fully recyclable and can easily be recycled into second life products like other mailing bags, refuse sacks etc and so waste very little natural resource.
Oxo Biodegradable Mailing Bags
This very popular range of grey printed warning notice mailing bags are manufactured in 3 layer co-extruded film. To ensure that your labels stick to the outside of the mailing bags we have extruded the outer surface in a 100% virgin layer and low slip. The polythene film is manufactured from at least 25% post consumer waste and are also 100% Oxo-biodegradable*.
All our grey printed warning notice mailing bags are 45mu in thickness. The bags come with a child safety suffocation warning notice printed on them. The inside of the bags are black so that you cannot see through the film. Our grey printed warning notice mailing bags can be addressed and accept labels, stamps and pens/biro.
* The term ‘Oxo-biodegradable’ is a hybridisation of two words, oxidation and biodegradable. It clearly defines a two step process initiated by an additive called 'Reverte' to degrade the polythene film and make it available for biodegradability within the environment when a bag has finished its useful life, usually within a set time period depending on the % added. 1% would trigger in around 6-8 months.
The additive is designed specifically to address the issue of plastic waste that gets into the environment and cannot be realistically collected. It has been used in numerous PE and PP applications for many years and now.
