Polythene is generally used for producing plastic sheeting and plastic bags. Both of which come from the same manufacturing process. Polythene pellets are melted and then extruded through a circular die gap forming a plastic tube, the die can be adjusted to produce different diameters. The tube can also be made thin or thick by stretching and inflating. The tube can also be cut in one or both sides or be gusseted. The cooled polythene tube is then rolled at the end of the process. All of this is done in the same machine in a continuous flow.
