Advantages of Polypropylene Poly Bags

Excellent Clarity: Polypropylene has superior clarity compared to LDPE. Clarity LDPE resins typically have a haze value of 5-6%, whereas polypropylene resins have a haze value of 1.5-3.5%. Polypropylene is typically used in applications where maximum clarity is desired, such as candy packaging, greeting cards, art prints, etc.

Stiffer, Stronger: Although less dense than LDPE materials, polypropylene’s molecular weight distribution makes the polypropylene bags feel stronger and stiffer in a same mil thickness comparison.

Better Moisture Barrier Properties: Polypropylene has better protection properties than LDPE, but slightly less protection than HDPE. The disadvantage with polypropylene is that it is typically produced as a sideweld structure, which has a slight risk of developing pinholes in the seal, defeating the moisture retention properties.

Best High Temperature Resistance: Polypropylene does not start to soften until about 270 degrees Fahrenheit, making it suitable for hot filling product and autoclave sterilization.

Disadvantages of Polypropylene Poly Bags

Bag Structure: Unless a company has special equipment, polypropylene is limited to flat bags or bags with bottom gussets. Side gusseted bags requires special bag making equipment (similar to cello bag equipment).

Fair Low Temperature Resistance: Polypropylene is not recommended for freezer use, particularly the homopolymer grades. Random copolymer grades are better, but only for consumer freezers.
