Thickness or Gauge:
The thickness, or “gauge”, of a plastic bag refers to the thickness of a single wall of the bag, generally measured in mils, or thousands of an inch (1000 mil= 1 inch). (Note: Bags are sometimes measured in microns (mic). To convert between mils and microns: 25.4 microns= 1 mil.)
All our resins are available in prime, virgin Low Density or Linear Low-Density Polyethylene manufactured in North America.
Flat Bags: side seal, bottom seal, perforated rolls, header packs
Dimesnsions: width x length
The WIDTH is measured across the opening of the bag.
The LENGTH is measured from the opening of the bag to its base.
All Measurements refer to interior dimensions.
Gusseted Bags: side or bottom gusset is a fold on the bag that gives added depth by creating either expandable sides or bottom.
SIDE GUSSET DIMENSIONS: width x depth
BOTTOM SIDE GUSSET DIMENSIONS: Width x Length x depth
The depth is measured across the gusset of the bag when the gusset is EXTENDED.
