DALLAS, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TriSupplies ( offers a selection of over 2,000 poly bags ranging in styles, sizes and mil thicknesses. Poly bags are a water resistant, light weight, economical packaging option used to ship, display and protect products. To help decide the best bag to fit your specific needs, here are some guidelines. 

TriSupplies stocks polyethylene bags and high clarity polypropylene bags that meet FDA and USDA specifications in flat, reclosable and gusseted styles. Flat bags protect products from dust and are closed with twist ties, bag tape or heat sealers. Gusseted bags feature expandable sides and fitted bottoms for easier packing. Resealable bags close with a zipper keeping products clean and free from moisture.  Bags on a roll offer quick and easy filling options. To protect electronic components, TriSupplies offers anti-static poly bags, UV protection bags, and static-shielding bags. If you need sizing flexibility, poly tubing is available to make custom size bags in seconds. For an entirely biodegradable option, GreenLine™ Biodegradable Bags are an earth friendly choice. 

Once a style has been selected, it is time to determine the mil strength of the poly bag. One "Mil" equals 1/1,000 of an inch and measures the thickness of the bag wall. TriSupplies stocks poly bags with Mil strengths ranging from 1 to 8. Choose 1 Mil poly bags for storage of light weight items, 3 Mil for medium weight pieces and 8 Mil for heavy-duty products like industrial parts and tools.
