Bagbarn offers 3 types of trash bag material for every purpose


Low Density Polyethylene(LLDPE) material has been the standard for all plastic bags since the beginning of the plastic bag industry. Although greatly improved over the years it is easily recognizable as conventional sandwich bag material. It is generally thicker and softer in feel than LLDPE. It has good puncture resistance but also has less tensile strength than LLDPE. For this reason, LDPE trash can liners are usually made to be much thicker than the other types of poly material and is also usually made from recycled plastic Because of the thickness, this material can be an excellent choice for heavy duty applications. Call (800) 720-1215 for quotes on larger quantities including custom sizes, gauges, and printing.

Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) trash bags are typically thicker than HDPE and they offer good tensile strength, but less than HDPE. LLDPE offers better puncture resistance when compared to HDPE. This material also has a softer feel than HDPE. LLDPE is ideal for office trash cans and heavy duty bags are great for more demanding applications such as leaf bags and industrial or institutional waste. This material is also an economical choice for larger garbage containers with refuse that has some sharp corners but is not extremely heavy.

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) garbage can liners are a strong, thin, material that are frosted in appearance. This material has excellent tensile strength but is punctured by sharp objects easier than other materials. It is ideal for use in environments where sharp corners are not a large part of the refuse going into the garbage can liner. The smaller sizes are ideal for office use. The larger sizes, which have increased thickness as compared to the smaller sizes, are great for heavy loads that don't have many sharp objects. Our stock HDPE liners are star sealed for extra strength and are on convenient coreless rolls.
