Plastic Twist Ties - Cut to Length

Plastic Twist Ties

A plastic twist tie is a metal wire encased in a thin strip of plastic. Also known as bread bag twist ties, they are used to close the openings of bread bags, plastic garbage bags and produce bags. Plastic coated wire twist ties are used by wrapping the tie around the item to be closed or secured, then twisting the two ends together.  In addition to being used to close bags, plastic twist ties are also used for bundling and securing a range of objects in and around the home, office or workspace. They are commonly offered in pre-cut lengths, spools and perforated sheets.      

Plastic twist ties are used for more rugged and long-lasting bindings because they can withstand exposure to moisture and remain intact, even after repeated use. Flexible, durable and removable, plastic twist ties are an inexpensive method of bag closure and tag attaching, and are useful for various home projects.

Supply Plaza offers 4”, 6”. 8”, 10” and 12” plastic twist ties cut to length and pre-packaged for your convenience. We also provide a range of color options for our garden twist ties for color coding, crafting, floral arrangements, and other applications.

Plastic Twist Ties versus Paper Twist Ties

The difference between paper twist ties and plastic twist ties is solely the material used to coat the wire at the center of the twist tie. Paper twist ties are made of more recycled material and are suitable for most dry tying or tag attaching needs. Plastic twist ties are costlier but are water resistant and long lasting.

Each material has its advantages and disadvantages, so the choice comes down to which twist tie material would work best for your intended application. Where a paper twist tie might grow soggy and begin to easily flake away in wetter applications (such as tying produce in a grocery section that will be misted) a plastic twist tie will maintain its structure even in the presence of significant moisture.

For totally dry or single-use applications such as tying garbage bags or other indoor uses, paper twist ties are the standard. For indoor or outdoor applications in which getting wet is a significant possibility or the ties will be untied and retied repeatedly, a plastic twist tie is likely to perform better. Plastic wire coated twist ties also work well for outdoor applications such as securing plants to fencing, a trellis or garden stakes, and for securing outdoor lighting and wiring.
