What Type of ice bag should I choose?

Choosing the right type of Ice Packaging is mainly one of function in how you pack them. Manual ice bag packagers usually choose between two styles:
  • Loose-packed Plain Top Ice Bags which include twist-ties for closing. Other closing options are available as an option like bag sealing tape, etc.
  • Drawstring Ice Bags have a drawstring top for easy, hassle-free closing once loaded with ice. The drawstring also allows for a convenient carrying handle for the consumer.
Higher volume ice packagers use semi-automatic and high-speed automatic packaging machines that require Ice Bags on Wicket or Ice Bag Roll Stock Film:

What are Metallocene and EVA, and why are they important?

Metallocene is a LLDPE or linear low-density polyethylene resin used to make ice bags and film stronger than traditional LDPE – Low-Density Polyethylene. EVA is a copolymer resin additive that helps poly film perform better in cold temperatures. All polyethylene films become brittle at freezing temperatures, so EVA is added to soften the film and aid in puncture resistance, ripping, and tearing. EVA is safe for food contact.
