High density polyethylene liners provide excellent film strength and puncture resistance, but less tear resistance than LLDPE. Used for paper and non-rough objects under moderate transport conditions. These bags are very strong and handle higher load capacities than LLD bags, but tear easier once punctured.
Suggested HDPE applications:
• Paper plates, cups, towels, office
• Grass, rags, smooth heavy objects
• Cans without sharp edges, food without sharp edges
Linear low density polyethylene liners are the primary type of resin used in modern can liner manufacturing technology. Excellent combination of film strength, puncture resistance and tear resistance. Used for rough or sharp objects under tough transport conditions. These bags are very strong and are more resistant to tearing, but handle lower load capacities than HDPE bags.
Suggested LLDPE applications:
• Sticks, rough yard trimmings, glass
• Metal with sharp edges
• Plastic eating utensils, food with rough edges
