There are a variety of packaging options on the market. When looking for the best packaging for your product, it can seem overwhelming to try to pick one. Even within the category of plastic packaging, there are a lot of different kinds. One of the most often used is polyethylene packaging; but why is polyethylene packaging a good choice for your product?

Polyethylene is a kind of plastic derived from petroleum polymers. It’s one of the most durable types of plastic in existence today. It’s also inexpensive and highly chemically resistant. This means it can survive a variety of environmental hazards. Because of these characteristics, polyethylene packaging is widely considered superior to other packaging materials. This is what makes it so widely used.

Packaging That Protects

Polyethylene packaging doesn’t allow water vapor to pass through, meaning it can seal easily contaminated products away from dangerous elements. Many kinds of polyethylene packaging can be heat sealed, meaning the material can be wrapped tightly around the product and secured with an airtight seal. Many companies use polyethylene for electronic components because it protects them from both moisture and tampering.
