Water soluble bag manufacturers produce bags made from polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) material. This kind of bag is a great solution to the problem of single-use plastic bags. These bags can be used as alternative to traditional laundry bags and are also great for packaging items that will come into contact with water. They are made from a safe and non-toxic PVA film and are printed with water-based inks that are marine-safe and biodegradable. These bags can be sanitized, making them safe to use for any type of food or household products.
These bags can be used in many different industries, such as laundry, hospital, and cleaning services. They can be used to isolate and transport soiled linens and uniforms, bed sheets, towels, and blankets. They are resistant to various organic solvents, fats, oils, and greases and can also be used as a liner in mop buckets. They are also impervious to gases and will not generate static charge. These bags are available in a variety of sizes, from 6 in. x 8 in. to 60 in. x 60 in., and are made from 2.75 mil PVA material.
Another important thing to remember about these bags is that they will dissolve completely in cold water. This is a much better option for the environment than allowing them to break apart and degrade in hot water. This is because the degradation process is slower in cold water, so it won’t have such a big impact on the environment.
This is especially important since PVA-based hot water soluble polybags are being suggested as an alternative to single-use plastics in the context of a circular economy. However, most of the suggested end-of-life pathways for these bags involve destroying the material, either by dissolution in water or industrial composting, which would require the production of new plastics to replace the old ones.
The bags are manufactured using a largely conventional bag-making process, starting with a sheet of PVA film. The sheet is then cut to size and either sealed on one or both of the longitudinal edges using an adhesive strip or a heat sealer. The bags are then marked with barcodes or other information, using a water-based ink.
The bags are then packaged and ready for sale. They can be bought in a variety of different sizes and are ideal for packaging items that will come into contact with cold water. They are available in a range of colors and can be printed with any logo or design that is required. They are also available with a zip lock closure to keep the contents secure. These bags are an environmentally-friendly alternative to the traditional single-use plastic garment bags and can be used for a variety of purposes, such as isolating contaminated clothing and bed linens in hospitals. They are also suitable for packaging powder agrochemicals as they will not come into direct contact with the product and so will be a safer alternative to traditional polybags.
