All about Poly Tube

If you wrap your products with a strong, reliable plastic film, you’re probably familiar with poly tubing. If you choose to cut corners with your wrapping, you may be more familiar with lost and damaged stock, lost productivity and reduced profits.

Don’t let your business become another victim of poorly manufactured packaging. Learn more about poly tubing and find out why you should make the switch if you haven’t already.

What Is Poly Tube?

Polyethylene (poly) tubing is a film product that is wound on a roll for continuous use. It is used in many industries as it offers far greater versatility than plastic bags. It is customizable and  flexible, and it can be used for many applications.

A Brief History

Polyethylene was first synthesised by German chemist Hans von Pechmann in 1898. This discovery was purely accidental as he was actually investigating Diazomethane. After this revelation, scientists found that polyethylene had properties that divided into:

  • Mechanical
  • Thermal
  • Optical
  • Chemical
  • Electrical

As a result of these findings, polyethylene products first started to be mass manufactured in the 1950s.

Common Applications

Any company that needs multiple products wrapped at once can benefit greatly from poly tubing. Companies that can take their productivity to the next level with poly tube include:

  • Retail
  • Transportation and logistics
  • Construction

These industries handle goods of all shapes, weights and sizes. Poly tubing is so versatile that it can be used to transport an array of chemicals and liquids. This makes it easy to be vigilant with your stock, taking the headache out of transporting your products.
