Plastic Packaging

Design Packaging and Tapes’ range of plastic packaging includes everything from shrink wrap and tubing to self-seal bags and custom printed covers. Whether you need to order thousands of minigrip bags or mattress covers or large shrouds – we can do it. Here’s a brief overview of the plastic packaging solutions we offer:


At Design Packaging and Tapes we manufacture bespoke tubing solutions according to customer specifications. Using virgin or recycled tubing, we can create tubing of different sizes (width) for various applications and the thickness can be adjusted for particular specifications. We also create tubes of various colours. For example, black tubing is often specified for products that needed to be covered or if the products need to be treated as confidential.

Design Packaging and Tapes stocks 1750 mm wide recycled tubing with a thickness of 70 microns. It serves to keep products dry and dust free and is used extensively in the furniture industry as a protective covering while furniture items are being delivered or stored.

Pallet Wrap

We offer pallet wrap in a variety of thicknesses and widths. It has cling and stretch characteristics and is applied with a hand held rolls (with or without dispensers) to large automatic machines. Pallet wraps are generally specified in transparent colouring which facilitates easy identification of the secured product. Some applications, however, require a black opaque colour to conceal products.

Pallet wrap is the ideal packaging solution for a variety of applications because it provides a fast, efficient and cost effective way to strap goods onto a pallet, whilst providing protection from moisture, dust, and pollution. It stabilizes pallets loads and helps reduce pilferage in transit or in storage areas.

Shrink Wrap

We supply various sizes of shrink wrap packaging to customers in South Africa. We can manufacture shrink wrap in a variety of thicknesses, strengths, shrink ratios and charities and can be made to shrink in one or both directions. The sky is the limit when it comes to ordering shrink wrap for products, whether you need to wrap a small or very large item (including a car or small aircraft) – we can give you the shrink wrap you need.

The material is supplied in flat roll form or in centerfold film. Once the film has been placed over the intended item, heat is applied to the film making it shrink and mostly conform to the shape of the item. Heat may be applied by a heat gun, a suitably sized shrink tunnel or even an oven. Some of the common shrink wrap applications include packaging for beverage cans, cartons containing many different products and palletised freight goods.

Plastic Bags

We supply everything from tiny bags to extra-large bags (such as mattress covers, for example). The covers can be produced from virgin material or recycled and of different thicknesses. We generally manufacture covers according to client orders and specifications, but we also stock commonly used sizes at our manufacturing facility. These are some of the sizes we stock:
