Trah Liners gauges. Thickness in liners

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Gauge is a term used in the trash can liner industry to describe the thickness of a liner. Gauge is typically stated either in mils or microns.


A mil is a measurement based on a thousandth of an inch (.001). Linear Low Density trash can liners will range from .30 to 2.0 mils. Improved resin technologies have allowed manufacturers to produce thinner trash can liners that are much stronger than the trash can liners of the past.


A micron is a measurement based on one hundred thousandths of an inch (.00001). High Density trash can liners range from 6 to 24 microns.



Low density vs high density trash bags

Thursday, October 25th, 2012


Trash bags of low density are made out of “low-density polyethylene” (LDPE) material. It was the first grade of polyethylene using high pressure process. Plastic bags out of LDPE are commonly recycled.

Low density trash bags are typically translucent, flexible and tough. They are extremely strong bags that are water and tearing resistant. Trash bags of this kind are stretchable and can make bigger space for contents that need to be tied closely.

Low density trash bags are better for handling sharp objects like kitchen utensils or shattered glass, and wet wastes like left-over foods. Moreover, low density bags are also used as food bags to freshly carry any kind of foods. Making Low density trashbags ideal for those in the food or restaurant industry.


Trash bags of high density are made out of “high-density polyethylene” (HDPE) material. The difference is it provides more strength than low density trash bags.

High density trash bags are made stronger and more durable than low density ones. Its plastic is thicker, features better puncture resistance, and can extraordinarily handle weightier materials.

So if you require heavy-duty plastic bags for commercial or industrial purpose, this one is for you. It is widely used in hospitals, contract cleaners, and other businesses that need to carry loads of materials or wastes.
