About our Mailing Bags

Confused by the mailing bags we stock at www.premierpackaging.ie? Read on for more information , including how they’re manufactured …

Grey Mailing Bags

This very popular range of grey mailing bags are manufactured using 3-layer co-extruded film. The polythene film is manufactured from at least 25% post-consumer waste and is also 100% Oxo-Biodegradable.

Oxo-Biodegradable plastic is made by blending a pro-degradent additive into the plastic during manufacture. This additive degrades the polythene film, encouraging the plastic to break down in the environment. The degradation time varies depending on the amount of exposure to degradation promoters (sunlight, heat) When exposed, these mailing bags can break down into biodegradable matter in 8-12 months (as opposed to decades or even centuries for other plastics!)

All our grey mailing bags are at least 45-micron in thickness. the insude of the bags are opaque so that you cannot see throught the film. the high specification of grey film lhas been chosen to give the best performance-to-weight ratio by reducing your postage costs yet ensuring delivery of your products in good condition. A unique grader of hot-melt glue used for sealing the mailing bags means that once they are sealed, you will have to rip the mailing bag open to get at the contents. The manufacturing process means that there may be a slight initial odour to the bags on first use, but this disappears quickly upon use and is completely harmless.
