Bottom Seal of Waste Bags Types Advantages of different bottom seals.

The Star Seal is the most common type of seal in the market today.  Designed without gussets, the star seal eliminates gaps along the seal where leaks can occur.  This unique design allows the bag to conform more easily to the shape of the container and distributes the weight of the refuse evenly around the bag.  Star seal liners maximize the bag's carrying capacity and virtually eliminate leaks.  Star seal liners are designated in two dimensions,  i.e., 40 x 46

The Gusseted Seal is a flat style bag manufactured with both sides tucked in to form gussets.  Where indented, the bag has to be sealed through four layers of film, while the middle of the bag has two layers.  Gusseted seal liners are designated in three dimensions, i.e.,     23 x 17 x 46

The Flat Seal is just as the name infers, a flat seal is simply a 2-dimensional bag with a bottom seal.  Flat seal bags are generally leak proof like Star Seal bags, but are very clumsy to handle.  Also they do not conform very well to the shape of most trash receptacles.  Flat Seal liners are designated in two dimensions, i.e., 40 x 46.  

Advantages of Linear Low Density Can Liners!

  1. Maximum puncture and stretch resistance compared to High Density.

  2. Multi-purpose applications.

  3. Manufactured in wide variety of colors.

  4. Compared to traditional low density film, linear low can be run at a lighter gauge with equal strength.

Advantages of High Density Can Liners!

  1. High Density liners are about 3 times stronger and more durable than ordinary poly liners of the same thickness.

  2. High Density liners require 2/3 less petroleum based raw material to manufacture.  Accordingly, they can be made about 1/3 the  thickness of ordinary low density poly liners, so they require less storage space for the same quantity  of liners.   Cost per liner is much less.

  3. FDA and USDA approved (natural colored liners) .
