The star seal is the most common type of seal in the market. Designed without gussets, the star seal eliminates gaps along the seal where leaks can occur. This allows the bag to more easily conform to the shape of the container and distributes weight evenly inside the bag. Star seal liners maximize the bag's carrying capacity and virtually eliminate leaks. Star seal liners are designated by two dimensions, e.g., 40 x 46.
A flat style bag manufactured with both sides tucked in to form gussets. Where indented, the bag is sealed through four layers of film while in the middle of the bag has only two. Gusseted seal liners are designated by three dimensions, e.g., 23 x 17 x 46.
A flat seal is a two-dimensional bag with a bottom seal, much like a pillow case. Flat seals are generally leakproof but are clumsy to handle. Also, they do not conform well to the shape of most trash receptacles. Flat seal liners are designated by two dimensions, e.g., 40 x 46.
Why Gauge Isn't Always Important
Film Thickness is no Longer the Only Standard
Film thickness is no longer the only standard for judging overall bag strength. The development of advanced resins and additives has changed the standard method for selecting the correct can liner. These developments have allowed manufacturers to produce thinner, lighter trash bags that are stronger and more durable than thicker bags made from lesser quality raw materials.

More Visable Labeling
Our carton has visible labeling that reflects our tight manufacturing guidelines and provides end users with complete product information.
Linear Low Density Can Liners
- Superior tear resistance compared to HD liners
- Multipurpose applications
- Most prevalent type of film used in the industry
- Manufactured in a wide variety of colors
- Compared to traditional low density film, linear low density can be run at a lighter gauge with equal or greater strength
High Density Can Liners
- HMW-HD liners are more puncture resistant than LLD liners of the same thickness
- HMW-HD liners are made much thinner than LLD liners but can hold the same or greater weight
- Substantial cost savings on a per-liner basis
- Heritage natural and white-pigmented bags are made from FDA-approved raw materials
Packed for end user convenience
Our topside dual-dispensing cartons were developed in response to customers' needs. Now, cartons may be stacked to save space while still dispensing liners with greater ease.
