Plastic Bags Manufacturer Bradley’s gets environmentally friendly
California (rushprnews) June 13, 2007- Bradleyâ€™s Plastic, maker of plastic bags, in cooperation with the Los Angeles Regional Water Resources Control Board, has begun to institute a program designed to insure that our storm water discharges are not negatively impacted by our production processes.
Always mindful that we are stewards of our environment, Bradleyâ€™s has reprocessed our own scrap material for more than 20 years.
We discharge nothing from our production processes into the waste stream. The small percentage of material that cannot be reprocessed and reintroduced into production is sold for use in making other products such as plastic decking, hand railings and tables.
We are pleased to be part of a formal program to insure the integrity of our water resources.
Bradleyâ€™s, founded in 1933, is one of the oldest polyethylene extruders in Southern California. Specializing in plastic bags
In an industry where imports play an increasing roll, many U.S. extruders have closed their doors. Bradleyâ€™s has survived by being fast and flexible. Our operating philosophy stresses the belief that customers want products today not in 3 weeks. Distributors and Importers of Packaging Materials are limited in their capabilities to a fixed set of stock products and long lead times – as much as 8 to 10 weeks for imported items. We on the other hand, strive to have materials available within 1 day of order.
Began producing poly bags in 1945.
Bradley Bag uses the Blown Film process to extrude polyethylene film.
Polyethylene resin, in the form of pellets, is conveyed by air to extruders where it is heated to approximately 350 degrees F. It is then forced through a die to form tubing. Tubing sizes range from 1 Â½â€ to 58â€. Tubing is then cut and sealed to create bags of various sizes and shapes.
