Films for garden soil are the black and white films, characterized by considerably higher (comparing to courier envelopes film) resistance to mechanical damage.
They are designed to withstand heavier product. Standard thickness of these films is from 70-120 μm. Considering packaging system (VFFS) used for garden soil, the film requires excellent sealing properties. Also logistics of ready goods ( bags of garden soil) require the film to perform with high coefficient of friction. This prevents bags from slipping from the palette. Furthermore due to the common storing conditions the films contain anti-UV additive, which prevents polyethylene from degradation and protects the product from the harmful effects of sunlight.
