This is for a box of 250 crystal clear polyolefin shrink bags in the XXL
12"x16" size and 75 gauge thickness. These are the LARGEST polyolefin bags on
the market. The opening is on the 12" side. This bag size is great for gift
sets where you want to be able to still smell the items inside. You can also
seal these lengthwise to make long tubes for bath bomb sets.
Polyolefin is a softer plastic than PVC. It shrinks without sharp edges and
it’s ideal for bath & body products. Polyolefin requires a heat of 300-350
degrees to shrink, which means you have to use a heat gun. (PVC shrinks with
just a hair dryer.) A hair dryer will not shrink polyolefin. See instructions
below for using these bags.
Polyolefin protects products from the elements, dust and contamination, but
your customers can still SMELL the product through the packaging. Just give
your item 24 hours after shrinking to be able to smell it through the plastic.
It takes a day or so for the scent to work it's way through the plastic.
This plastic is FDA approved and considered food safe as well. It’s a great
product and it’s what we use on all our soaps, bath bombs, bubbly bath bars and
more. Sometimes we tie off the end and use it as a bag for items we don't want
Polyolefin shrinks easily and without the noxious fumes of PVC. It’s the ideal
shrink bag for bath stuff!
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE- use an impulse sealer to seal the excess bag off, then
shrink with a heat gun starting at the corners and seams, moving quickly so you
don’t burn through. Don't focus heat on the flat surfaces or they'll burn
through. Tighten seams and corners first and be quick over flat spots. It takes
a little practice to figure it out, but the result is a clean, professional
looking shrink wrap when you do! YouTube has how-to videos as well.
TIP: We like Jorestech brand impulse sealers with the metal housing and Wagner
1200-1500watt heat guns. Both are available on Amazon.
Products are just an example of items we shrink wrap using these bags. These
are not included in this listing.
FYI- If you choose the "padded flat rate mailer" we will ship these without
the box they come in. They can ship cheaper this way, but if you care about
having the box, please choose priority mail or medium flat rate box.
