Water soluble bag manufacturers manufacture products including plastic bags, biodegradable bags, flushable sanitary pads film, food grade film, evaporative cooler bags, and other packaging. They serve customers in a variety of industries, including medical, food, automotive, and construction. Their products are environmentally friendly and made from sustainable, renewable resources. They also offer a variety of colors, sizes, and closures. They can custom design and manufacture products for a number of applications.
Manufacturers of water soluble bags are using new technology to reduce the amount of single-use plastics that are used in the production of plastic bags. The new product is an alternative to traditional polybags, which are made of Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE). It dissolves in hot water and leaves no traces, making it a greener option for businesses that use disposable bags. The new bags are designed to be reusable and can be used repeatedly until they are worn out.
The new LDPE-free bags are made of a blend of cellulose and polyester that is biodegradable. The bags are also free of phthalates and other harmful chemicals. They are printed with a water-based ink that is safe for the environment and marine life. They can be scanned with a barcode reader and are transparent. They can also be recycled with other LDPE-free products and comply with environmental regulations.
Water soluble bags are great for hospitals because they can be used to contain blood contaminated linens, MRSA contaminated clothing, and bed bug infected bedding and curtains. This enables the hospital to minimize contact between staff and soiled laundry. It also allows the contaminated clothes to be easily removed from the washing machine without any direct contact with the dirty clothing or linen.
Some major producers of LDPE-based water soluble plastic bags are suggesting that these are a replacement for single-use plastics. However, their claims are questionable. For example, a British outdoor brand, Finisterre, is suggesting that their water soluble polybags are an alternative to traditional plastic bags. But, when you look at the official life-cycle assessment (LCA) figures for these polybags, you find that they are not really an alternative to single-use plastics.
The composition of the present invention may be especially adapted for producing a laundry bag. This is done by folding a cold water soluble portion over an additional hot water soluble strip 3 of film, as shown in FIG. 2. An adhesive is then applied between these elements to bind them together. The bag is then used for holding wet laundry. The cold water soluble portion remains out of contact with the laundry while the hot water soluble portions dissolved by elevation in the temperature of the wash cycle. The resulting mixture of cold and hot water soluble materials is then flushed away. Alternatively, the bag can be made wholly of the cold water soluble material. This is preferred if the bag is to be used for containing dry laundry and a hot water soluble portion disposed of separately.
