Pallet Bags are great for quick and easy protection of pallets from moisture and dust. If you’re looking for a pallet bag size that isn’t listed on our site, we can probably get it made for you, we have manufacturing facilities available for small or large runs and the capability to import large jobs.
Pallet bags are typically made as a side gusset bag
Side gusset bag or tube
A side gusset is used when a product is more more square or round and the typical flat bag wont to the job as the bottom of the bag will look too messy. The side gusset folds the sides of the rolls in and seals them. Melbourne packaging always list the side gusset as the full length of the gusset. Eg 1220mm x 1220SGmm gives a tube with a circumference of 4880mm
A side gusset is also used for large bags or tube where producing a large tube and winding it is impractical or just impossible because of the winders max capability. Its also cheaper to transport rolls that aren’t quite as wide.
Watch our pallet bag being wrapped with machine stretchwrap and the Mytho PRS XF-5003. This creates a tight waterproof barrier for protecting food goods from dust and moisture in transport along with pests.
Availability and delivery
Custom made pallet bags are available from a 10 day lead time.
Many different coloured masterbatches can be added to the film, we can produce fil in natural(clear), black, white, grey, green, blue, red, yellow orange or a wide range of other colours.
We can produce film that’s co extruded, so if you would like to have black on one side and white on another we can offer that.
Low slip and high slip
If required the film can be produced very smooth or we can make the surface more textured and rough. To suit various packaging and application needs.
Shrink bags and tubing
We can produce the LDPE to be shrinkable, its great for proving protection on items Such as machinery been shipped and going overseas. The shrinkwrap provides a strong protective layer along with shielding goods from dust and the weather. You can add UV stabiliser if the product is been stored outside for a longer period.
Most of the films we make or source can be printed on, printing is a great way to advertise your company or brand or easily identify a certain product line. Most of our suppliers print with a method called “flexographic printing” or “flexo” a artwork block/drum is required and then the artwork is rolled over the product as its been extruded.
The colours available are almost limitless, check the Pantone colour chart for colour options. Typically, the max number of colours per job is 5. We will be better able to advise you on the options once we sight the artwork and know the type of film you wish to print on.
