Types of Plastics

Image
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

HDPE is the most widely used type of plastic.  It’s used to make many types of bottles and containers. Unpigmented bottles are translucent, have good barrier properties and stiffness, and are well suited to packaging products with a short shelf life such as milk. Because HDPE has good chemical resistance, it is used for packaging many household and industrial chemicals such as detergents and bleach. Pigmented HDPE bottles have better stress crack resistance than unpigmented HDPE.

Chem Data Report May 2017 LLDPE

Image
Subject: Chem Data Report - May 2017 LLDPE


May CDI is out and estimates $.03 down on LDPE, LLDPE, and HDPE. This has been confirmed as the market position by more than one of our resin suppliers but not all. That being said, I don’t see how this does not become the eventual market position for May.
PP is being posted at down $.075.
See below the resin moves we’ve had this year.

We had resin increases of $.05 in February and $.03 in March. There was a pending $.03 increase for May 1st that has been pushed out to June 1st. In addition to delaying the above $.03 May 1st increase, the market appears to be dropping $.03 May 1st. This would leave the $.05 increase from February as the only movement we’ve had in resin pricing this year.  More pricing information here: www.quickpakinc.com

TACH-IT TAMPER EVIDENT BAG SEALER BAG SEALER 3235

TACH-IT TAMPER EVIDENT BAG SEALER BAG SEALER 3235
The Model #3235 is the original tamper evident bag sealer on the market. The unit puts a tamper evident seal onto the neck of a poly bag by creating an adhesive to adhesive tape flag seal and then installing a piece of paper liner into the seal. This leaves the ends flared allowing the person who purchased the product to open the bag by grabbing the ends of the tape without damaging the bag. The seal can be re-used and the purchaser knows that when they go to buy the product if the paper liner is ripped or damaged the product was tampered with. The Model #3235 is easy to load, does not require any operator training or tools to make changeovers, unlike other versions of this machine on the market, uses industry standard consumables, can be mounted, and has a bag trimmer to trim any excess bag. 

Machine length 11in., width 3in., height 6.5in., weight 2.5 lbs.
