Plastic film is a thin sheet of material with a thickness less than 2.5mm. Generally used as a packaging medium to cover or wrap things. Plastic film also can be made clear or coloured, printed or plain, single or multi-layered and combined with other materials such as aluminium and paper.
Generally polythene film is manufactured through a blown film process. Small plastic pallets are melted down under controlled conditions and then extruded through a circular die gap forming a continuous plastic tube. The tube is then cut open at one end, inflated and stretched to the desired size and thickness.
