Everyone Knows What A Grip Seal Bag Is Now!
The high cost of production coupled with challenges in understanding how to open the bag had stalled popularity, but by 1973 ziplock bags were becoming a household staple. Dow Chemical had vastly improved the production process and lowered costs, and consumers had caught on. The Ziploc® bag dominated flexible packaging production and continues to do so today.
The Ziploc® brand is now owned by S.C. Johnson, producers of household brands including Glade®, Pledge®, Windex®, and Raid®. While S. C. Johnson’s Ziploc® brand produces reclosable polyethylene bags for consumers, ITW Corporation’s Zippak brand produces plastic zippers for industrial markets. In fact, the Ziploc® Brand does not produce industrial zippers for application to high-barrier materials and multi-layer films.
Maxpack has a large range of grip seal bags available from stock for industrial use in standard thickness, heavy duty thickness and with a write on panel, see here.
