A lot of people ask the question if Degradable Singlet Bags are “as good” as Singlet Bags made from conventional plastic.   And indeed they very well are – so long as two key conditions are met:

  • The manufacturer uses good quality raw materials
  • The Bags are stored correctly, and not exposed to excess heat or light – which may prematurely start the process of degradation.

We’ve actually made a video to demonstrate a Degradable Singlet Bag in a weight bearing test which is heavier than what you would find a typical “supermarket load” of groceries to be.  The singlet bag in question is the S12DEB – one of our original degradable products. Degradable Singlet Bags were first marketed by Maxpak in 2001, meaning the Company was one of the first to introduce this environmentally sensitive material to Australia.
