Our Materials

We use the finest packaging materials available

We have a variety of quality packaging materials available for a range of project needs. Different materials have different benefits and costs, and we have the experience to guide our customers to select the materials that will fit their projects’ specific needs.

Paper, Coated Art

Pak 2000 uses excellent grade art paper in a variety of thicknesses to ensure the correct amount of rigidity for specific projects. Customers can select from art paper coated on one side (C1S) or covered on two sides (C2S) with a gloss or matte finish.

Paper, Kraft

Paper undergoing the Kraft process tends to have a higher tensile strength than other paper materials. It is relatively inexpensive and when produced is naturally darker than other papers, though it can be bleached to produce an excellent clean, white look.

Chipboard

Although the line between paper and board is often blurry, our use of chipboard is extensive, as it's a sturdy material normally created with a high volume of recycled content.

Cotton

The undisputed king of modern natural materials, cotton offers a variety of benefits. Not only is it a fully sustainable resource, it's also lightweight, strong, easy to clean, and can be as soft or as tough as required. Bags made of cotton are completely washable and are favored by consumers as a luxury item when accompanying a purchase.

Jute

The coarser and less well-known natural cousin of cotton, jute is even tougher, though it's not quite as soft. It is also one of the most inexpensive natural fibers available.

Polypropylene (PP)

A thermoplastic used in a variety of applications, PP is a packaging industry mainstay. It's a tough material and can made into a variety of forms. Most reusable shopping bags today are made from non-woven PP. Also available_ PP with high PCR (post-consumer resin) content.

Polyethylene (PE)

The most common plastic in the world, PE is used to create poly bags that are both recyclable and reusable. Most plastic shopping bags are made from different thicknesses of PE, thanks to its durability and ability to expand.

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

LDPE is lower in density than its parent material, meaning it has less tensile strength. The upshot is that this ensure the material is softer and much more ductile, excellent for producing soft-touch items.

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

HDPE film is generally stronger and stiffer and more opaque than LDPE. Given its toughness it is possible to produce bags of equivalent strength from thinner film.

Pergaplas

Pergaplas combines the greater strength of HDPE with the better feel and printing properties of LDPE.

K-Soft (Cast Polyethylene)

K-Soft is a very soft film that resists wrinkles better than any other substrate. Hot stamping is possible, and the seal is stronger than that of LDPE.
