What is a PVC bag?

The material PVC is an extremely stable plastic that is characterized by dimensional stability and tear resistance. PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride, which is a synthetic polymer produced by the polymerization of vinyl chloride monomers. It is one of the most commonly used plastics in the world and is used in a wide range of applications.

PVC is known for its versatility, durability and resistance to chemicals, moisture, weathering and abrasion. It can be manufactured in a variety of forms, including hard, rigid forms such as pipes, window profiles and cladding, as well as flexible forms such as films, coatings and tubing. 

In addition to its versatility, PVC is also relatively inexpensive to produce, making it a popular material in many industries, including construction, automotive, electronics, healthcare and packaging. 

As PVC bags can be produced in almost any shape, the practical applications are virtually limitless.

Here are the main advantages of PVC bags:

What is a zipper bag? What are zipper bags and flight bags?

A slide seal bag is a type of bag that is closed with a so-called slide seal closure mechanism. This mechanism allows the bag to be opened and closed by simply sliding a plastic strip along a special groove, which opens or closes the bag. This type of bag is very common and is used for various purposes, such as storing food, packaging items or for medical applications.

PVC Zip Bag and Flight Bags

Flight bags are special bags that must often be used by airline passengers to transport liquids and gels in hand baggage in accordance with the security regulations for liquids. They are usually transparent and have a certain maximum size. Flight bags are usually equipped with a resealable closure that allows the liquids to be transported safely and the bag to be opened and closed easily when required.

Zipper bags are similar to slide seal bags, but they use a zipper mechanism to open and close the bag. The zipper consists of two plastic strips that interlock to close the bag. This type of bag is also widely used and is used for similar purposes as slide seal bags.
