Paper Tin-Tie Bags
Paper tin-tie bags are paper packaging lined with either polypropylene, white kraft, or PLA. It is most often used as a retail take away bag or for short term storage. The tin-tie, which is attached to the top of the bag, is used for reclosure. The paper tin-tie bag is an economical, practical way to contain a wide variety of items including coffee, dry soups, confections, natural products and other dry goods. Note: Roasted coffee contained in a paper tin-tie bag should be consumed 7-10 days after roasting for maximum freshness and flavor.
The suitability and shelf life of a product in a paper tin-tie bag is dependent on the product stability with regards oxygen, moisture, fat content, etc. If longer shelf life is needed, a barrier bag may be necessary.
PBi offers three types of liners in the paper tin-tie bags:
- White Kraft
- PLA Compostable
Stock paper tin-tie bags are made from 50 lb. or heavier paper, and come standard with a thumb notch and a tin-tie. Paper Tin-Tie bags make a great option for environmentally sound packaging. See our Sustainable Packaging section of our website for further details.
Fold open, allowing the package to expand and accommodate the product.
The distinct, flat bottom allows the package to stand up straight on the shelf.
The tin-tie extends past the edges of the bag on both sides. To close, roll down top of the bag and fold tin-tie over the bag.
Consumers use the thumb notch to pull open the bag.
Compostable Paper Tin-Tie Bags
PLA or Polylactic Acid, is a clear, crisp film made from the sugars in corn starch. This product works well for items with a higher oil content, as the PLA liner will help keep product from wicking through the outer paper. In PBi lab testing, the PLA bags biodegraded in less than a month in our composter. We recommend removing the tin-tie prior to composting.
