polytube manufacturer Brisbane

Types of Polytube
Manufacturing a variety of polyethylene plastic tube for all types of industries.

Polyethylene Plastic Tube

Polyethylene tube, or polytube is a continuous length of extruded film that is wound onto a roll. Small pellets of low density polyethylene (LDPE) virgin food grade resin are fed into our extruder to create polytube through the process known as “blown film extrusion”. 

For heavier weight polyethylene tube products medium density (MDPE) or high density (HDPE) can be used.

We specialise in manufacturing smaller sized tube and can custom make polytube anywhere from 50mm wide and upward and can print or colour to promote your business or product.

Our polytube is used by customers for a wide variety of applications such as:

  • Wrapping
  • Packaging
