Polythene Layflat Tubing FAQs

Polythene Layflat tubing, or just "layflat", is an endless and seamless tube of polythene in exactly the state in which it comes from the extrusion machine. Looked at simply it is a continuous polythene bag with no bottom!

How can I secure the ends of my layflat?

You can close layflat by all the same methods as any polythene bag. Most people tape the ends, some use a stapler and many heat-seal the ends. You can even tighten cable ties around the ends!

Is layflat tubing watertight?

Yes, whilst it isn�t completely airtight it is fully watertight.

Can I freeze layflat wrapped round fish?

Yes - polythene is temperature stable down to domestic deep freeze levels.

Can I use layflat as air-ducting?

Yes - lots of people use layflat as cheap air-ducting; not only that, but wherever you want extra air simply make a hole in the duct! It can also be used to carry air-born products into silos, etc.

What is the diameter of 12" (305mm) layflat?

Our listed layflat dimensions are half the circumference (i.e. twice the width when laid flat). This means that a 305mm wide tube does NOT fit a 305mm dia pipe. The fomula required is Circumference divided by Pi (3.142) = Diameter. Or, Diameter X Pi = Circumference. So, to go over a 305mm pipe the layflat circumference would need to be (305 x 3.142) 958mm = 479mm laid flat width. The nearest available size is 508mm (20") - a nice fit with a little to spare.

Can I make my own bags from layflat tubing?

Yes, you�ll need a heat sealer with a cutter to make life easy, but if you are packing components of various lengths with a common width layflat is the ideal solution. It saves stocking loads of different bags and none get borrowed for sandwiches.
