Well there are really only 2 steps.
- Have a think about how you use your garbage bags, as they are not all equal. For example, some contract cleaners are obligated to change the liner in every bin that they look after – even if it’s only light waste paper and hardly used! These guys will only need an economical and reliable product. However, a pub or take away restaurant may absolutely punish their bags by over stuffing them with wet food scraps or even broken bottles! There is a big difference between the two.
- Go and visit reputable Bin Liner manufacturers like Maxpak and try out sample to find the most appropriate and reliable product.
That’s really all their is to it! However, you should be mindful of a few important things…
THICK, HEAVY GAUGE BAGS OF POOR QUALITY
However, in actual use – there were virtually useless. They were made from the cheapest raw material and the resin was diluted with various additives designed solely to add weight to the end product. The resulting final product would perform horribly on tensile strength and elongation tests. This meant that the final product would be thick, heavy and be ripped and torn with ease.
Whilst they could pass all weight / gauge testing – they ultimately failed spectacularly in real life applications.
We were quite frustrated with these products and made a video to demonstrate the problems with them – which can be seen below.
FILM THICKNESS IS NOT A SATISFACTORY STANDARD FOR JUDGING OVERALL STRENGTH
The GH16 was a ground breaking product for our company and continues to be commercially successful for our company. Never before had such a cost effective bag been able to perform so well. Whilst it took some time for this market to be developed, it is now a mainstay for our Company.
Each manufacturer has its own blend proprietary formulations, so the proportions of these materials will vary from one producer to another. The best way to determine the correct liner is to actually test some suggested samples.
