Questions

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. We can't advise you how much this would be until we know the width and gauge of the size you require.

For example, 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.

What is Poly (Plastic) Tubing used for?

There are many uses for it. Some people buy it for covering products that come in unusual/ different lengths, so they can chop off however much they want. Other people use it as covers for items that are again more lengthy than typical bags can cover.

Then there are builders and other industries that actually use it to help them in their projects, by feeding things through it. Another quality use is making your own bags with it. You cut off how much you want then seal on end and you have yourself your own sized bag.
