Lay flat polythene tubing

Layflat polythene tubing, designed and produced in the UK for over forty years

Also known as LFT, lay flat tubing is a polythene tubing wound onto a role for continuous use. This flexible polythene tubing offers maximum flexibility of bag size. All tubing is water resistant and available in whatever gauge you need for maximum protection and efficient processing.

We manufacture the most commonly used polythene tubing:

Lay flat tubing

Lay flat tubing, known as polythene tubing, is a continuous length of film that creates custom bags of almost any shape and size. It protects products from dust and dirt during manufacture and transit. For added security, lay flat tubing can be sealed with either a heat sealer or bag ties. Our lay flat tubing is wound onto a core and can be customised to almost any length or width. All tubing is rotated before winding to ensure even winding tension.

Gusseted lay flat tubing

Palagan's gusseted lay flat tubing is similar to continuous lay flat tubing with the addition of two gusseted panels. These gusseted panels give the tubing a rectangular profile. This means that it is able to open wider than lay flat tubing and therefore able to accommodate larger products.

We customise all our lay flat polythene tubing to exact customer specifications. Static levels, stiffness, strength, winding tension and slip levels are just some of the factors that can greatly affect the performance of the tubing you use. We adjust these properties and develop bespoke films to maximise your output and minimise your packaging costs.
