High-density (HD) bags are thin, crisp feeling, often clear bags that offer a cost-effective option. They are thinner than linear low-density bags and are not as puncture resistant, yet they can carry very heavy loads. High-density bags are ideal for office and bathroom waste, high traffic areas as well as trash cans located in public areas where sharp, heavy objects are not usually deposited. High-density bags are also perfect for storage of clothes, linens and dry goods. They are not recommended for use in the kitchen or objects with sharp edges.
High-density bags are measured in Microns.
Low-density (LD)), or linear low-density (LLD) bags are stronger, thicker and more resistant to punctures and tears than their high-density counterpart. Low-density bags are ideal for kitchen waste, construction sites or trash that includes glass, metal, wood, cardboard or irregular-shaped items.
The thickness of low-density bags is measured in mils.
