How it’s made

There are four steps that go into making the chip bag reflector

1.) Clean- The chip bags are placed (in bulk) into a vat of water and
soap heated to 70 degrees. The cleaning tank spins and swirls the
bags.

2.) Trim- The bags are then trimmed to take of the glue strips and
opened up.

3.) bond- The bags are bonded together and folded onto
eachother with a high strength bonding agent. The bags come out
in a long sheet that is 200ft long and 27” Wide

4.) Cut- The bags are cut up into 28” long rolls. From there, they are
packaged in bulk and sold to retailers.
