Poly Bag Product Selection Guide

1.) Measure your product.
Remember that you need a bit of room around your item, so always round up in measurements. Find the product's height, length, and depth.

2.) Choose a MIL thickness.
Bag thickness, or gauge, is measured in "MILs." Gauge designates the thickness of a single wall of poly in the bag. When ordering, gauge is listed as the last dimension in a measurement. You'll find all of our bags listed separately by MIL thickness for quick reference.

3.) Choose a bag style and size.
If your product is flat, a lay flat bag will be a good choice. Thick or deep items are a good fit in gusseted bags.Poly tubing is ideal for products that vary in length.

Lay Flat Size: The first measurement in a lay flat bag is the width across the opening. The length runs from the opening to the base of the bag.
Gusseted Size: Width measures across the opening of the bag. Depth is the fully extended gusset. The length runs from the opening to the bottom.

Choosing the proper MIL thickness:

1 MIL Thickness

  • Economical and reusable
  • Lightweight protection from dust, dirt, and moisture
  • Most commonly used for temporary storage
  • Great for any items that are lightweight and have no sharp edges, such as shirts, T-shirts, breads, pillows, etc.

1.5 MIL Thickness

  • Economical and reusable
  • Light to medium protection from dirt, dust, moisture, oils, etc.
  • Most commonly used for packaging light industrial parts, papers, clothing, and food
  • Use as a carton liner to protect contents
  • Ideal for items like catalogs, brochures, magazines, sweatshirts, candy, etc.

2 MIL Thickness

  • Most commonly used thickness for packaging, displaying, storing and protecting food, crafts, clothing, and various industrial parts
  • Use as a carton liner to protect products inside
  • Great for items that need to be protected from moisture and dirt, but also need the durability for shipping, such as dolls, jackets, books, rivets, fuses, washers, etc.

3 MIL Thickness

  • Heavy-weight protection for storing and shipping items that are abrasive or have rough edges, such as heavy industrial parts and hardware
  • Great for items such as nuts and bolts, hinges, handles, wire, cables, etc.

4 MIL Thickness

  • Extra heavy-weight protection for shipping bulky items that may be abrasive and have sharp edges, such as tools and heavier industrial parts
  • Great for items such as wrenches, pliers, locks, grinding wheels, drills, etc.

6 MIL Thickness

  • Super heavy-weight protection that will eliminate punctures, tears, and broken bags
  • Meet the heaviest needs for industrial parts and items with sharp, protruding edges
  • Recommended for chains, nails, heavy bolts, sharp tools, etc.

Line a Carton with a Gusseted Poly Bag

How to Line a Carton with a Gusseted Poly Bag

Fitting gusseted poly bag to a rectangular container

Take the actual dimensions of the carton. For example, 20" (width) x 12" (depth) x 20" (length). Add approximately 4" to either the width or depth for a looser fit. For the length, add all of the depth to the carton length and then add several inches to this total, depending on how much overlap is needed.

To line the sample carton:

Width = 20" + 4" = 24"
Depth = 12"
Length = 20" + 12" + 4" = 36"

BAG SIZE = 24" x 12" x 36"

Fitting Lay Flat Poly Bags to Containers

Fitting Lay Flat Poly Bags to Containers

Fitting poly bags to a round containerFor a Round Container...
1. To calculate the width of the bag needed, multiply the diameter of the container by 3.14 and then divide by 2. Add 1" to this total for a looser fit.

2. To calculate the length of the bag needed, add 1/2 of the diameter to the height of the container and then add 5" to this total for overhang.

3. If tying bag, add 1/2 the diameter again to the bag length determined by step #2.

Fitting poly bags to a round container
 

Fitting poly bags to a square or rectangular containerFor a Square or Rectangular Container...
1. To calculate the width of the bag needed, add the width andlength of the container and then add 2" to this total for a looser fit.

2. To calculate the length of the bag needed, add 1/2 of the widthto the height of the container and then add 5" to this total for overhang.

3. If tying a bag, add 1/2 the width again to the bag length determined in step #2.

Fitting poly bags to a square or rectangular container
 

Fitting poly bag to a rectangular containerExample for Rectangular Container...
To line a carton 14" (length) x 12" (width) x 21" (height):

1. L + W + 2 = bag width
For example box: 14" + 12" + 2" = 28"

2. H + 1/2 shortest side + 5" = bag length
For example box below: 21" + 6" + 5" = 32"

Using the formulas above, the ideal lay flat bag to use for a 14" x 12" x 21" container would be 28" x 32" by whatever gauge needed for the particular application.
