Our plastic tube ranges from 50mm wide (approx 2167.5m length) all the way up to 1000mm wide (approx 135m length). Many more sizes in between check it out online to see what dimension will work out best for you. Plastic tube is ideal to use when packing objects that are different lengths. You have the ability to choose how long you need to go before cutting off the tube. A Heat Sealer will seal both ends of the tube to keep your product inside. Alternatively you can use staples however this can be a hazard for fingers, so best to put a strip of packaging tape over the staples so no-one hurts themselves. Or just use tape to secure the ends. Plastic tubing is sold into the steel industry, curtain industry to keep dust off, storage of fabric materials inside the tube to keep bugs and dirt away. If you cannot find the size you want, please call us 1800 555 343, we are only too happy to help.
Can I purchase coloured poly plastic tube?This can be manufactured to order, however there would be a minimum quantity that would need to be produced. I am unable to advise you how much this would be until we know the width and gauge of the size you require. To manufacture any flexible packaging, a lot of factories require a minimum of 100kg of material or more. 100kg of a 100mm wide tube at 50um is going to be different to a 100kg of 100mm wide tube at 100um.

How do I know which thickness (gauge) to select in the plastic poly tube?If you are using the tube as a dust cover to keep dirt off, you will only need a light gauge like 35um. A heavy gauge like 100um would be used for items that could easily pierce the thinner tubing. Steel rods would be packed into a heavy gauge poly tube.
