The material in the manufacture of these bags is from recycled plastic and the bases are double weld for additional strength. They are transparent, allowing for viewing of the contents quickly without having to open the bag.


Suitable for mineral exploration and core drilling projects, often where numerous samples are taken, such as rocks, minerals, soils and more for geochemical, mineralogical or land remediation and assessment needs.
