UK Polythene for Home and Office
Flexothene are thinking about you and your business every day. The industry in the UK is robust and not showing any signs of slowing in the future. UK residents, like populations around the world, have taken to using polythene products for a number of transporting and packaging solutions.
We produce polythene products that meet UN resolutions and the standards set by European legislation regarding composition of acceptable packaging tools. From the simplest of products like packaging and sealing tapes to complex packaging solutions that can call for tubes or heavily covered, all weather protection sheets for industrial equipment, Flexothene have the solutions.
The UK polythene industry is gaining international attention for its research and development projects, e.g. inventing additives to be added during the production process that increases performance and usability. These additives have helped transform previously environmentally unfriendly products to environmentally friendly products (just take a look at eco-plastic Excelothene) that are biodegradable or compostable. This is a large step for the industry and has put the UK industry on the international trade map.
Flexothene provide a large array of products for personal or bulk use by businesses. Interestingly, our stock can be supplied in Virgin food grade, for general purpose and in regran. The basic list of polythene products or polythene products with biodegradable additives include:
- Packing tapes in plain, printed, brown and buff
- Strapping in PP, Polyester and steel
- Boxes, large or small ordered in quantities from 1 to 1 million
- Boxes and bags printed and plain or coloured
In addition to cultivating new manufacturing processes and new environmentally friendly technology, we have also refined our standard product lines to include multi-purpose and durable packaging solutions. Residence and businesses can draw from these expanded products:
- Bottom and side weld bags
