The first thing that hits everyone’s mind while selecting a garbage bag is its low cost, which is its biggest benefit. Safety and hygiene are not the concern because food and clothing items will not be packed in the garbage bags. This bag majorly serves as the container for garbage that is not going to affect the health of common people. Moreover, bags are found to maintain hygiene and cleanliness indoors, putting a halt to the stinky smell that arises from the garbage in your kitchen or elsewhere. Besides all, it is easy to handle, and just one needs to pick it up and throw it outside the house in the garbage area. But, the garbage bags are categorized into high-density and low-density plastic garbage bags that are composed of either polyethylene or HPDE material.
The major difference between the two types of plastic garbage:
It is discovered that a low-density bag is composed of linear lower density polyethylene or LDPE, whereas the high density is known as polyethylene or HDPE. This material provides the product with excellent strength and toughness. Let’s find out how to differentiate the high and low-density garbage bags.
Puncture Resistance: Low-density garbage bags are considered to be not only flexible but even thick and tear and puncture resistive. Every high-density garbage bag is known to have a different process of manufacture, but generally, they are manufactured at a low temperature by utilizing resin of higher molecular density. It allows the production of straight and tightly packed molecules to encourage directional strength and makes it thin and less puncture resistive compared to low density.
Appearance: Higher density bags are found to be crinkly and clear in appearance. Moreover, due to the appearance, a crunchy sound is produced. But in the case of low-density bags appears stronger and thicker, which is quite good in comparison to high-density garbage bags.
Waste Carry Capacity: Heavy Duty Garbage Bags need to be durable and lasting. Therefore, low-density garbage bags are generally used for carrying the garbage from a construction site, yard trash, and pointed kitchen waste such as wood, glass, cardboard, and irregular-shaped items. High-density bags are too thin and not even puncture resistive so it is generally used to carry towels, clothing, dirt, shredded paper, and other office and restroom wastes. But low-density bags are generally preferred for commercial and residential kitchens because they can bring a halt to the stinky smell of waste and even offer resistance to moisture. It is found that the large-sized low-density bags are stronger in comparison to smaller ones.
Measurement: Low-density bags measure approximately one-thousandth of inches and even denote in the form of mil means 0.001 inches. Thicker Heavy Duty Dustbin Liners have a high mil count, which ranges from 0.9 to 6.0 mil. Generally, it is estimated that 0.9 mil is the perfect choice for kitchen waste, whereas 6.0 mil is ideal for the construction site to carry heavy debris. It is found that high-density bags are estimated in terms of microns to be approximately one-thousandth of a millimeter and therefore available in two variants, i.e. grocery and recycling bags.
How to Choose the Right Garbage Bag for Your Application?
You need to have perfect knowledge about the characteristics of bags so that the selection process turns into an easy one. Therefore, one needs to consider a few of the factors before making any sort of decision:
Application requirement: Selection of the bag entirely depends upon its application. If one needs it as a trash liner for all the kitchen waste, then it is preferred to make use of low-density bags. But, if one is in search of a bag that is applicable for office waste, then high-density bags are the ideal choice.
Different types of seals: High as well as low-density garbage bags are available in the contemporary market with different seals. Seal means the method used to fuse the bottom layers of the bag. Seals are categorized into three different types of seals, i.e. star, flat, and gusset. The bag with the star seal can easily fit into the container because this type of seal can be several times blended and sealed. The gusset seal bags are tucked in; therefore, it is leak-proof, which means that this type of bag can be used in trash cans for the storage of wet garbage. Flat seals cannot collect any type of waste because they can be easily spread and comes with the drawback that they cannot be installed into trash bins.
Singhal Industries Private Limited has introduced Heavy Duty Dustbin Liners that are available with the difference in strength and durability. The only thing that you need to do is select the quality you need as per their carrying capacity. And this understanding comes with the daily number of wastages generated from the required applicable area.
