40-micrometre traditional waste bag v 18-micrometre Longopac Mini standard bin liner
When testing the strength of Longopac, we choose the most common scientific test method – Dart Drop ASTM D-1709
Comparing 2 liners:
We guarantee the strength measured in this Dart Drop for 2 years.
The dart drop clearly demonstrates a clear difference between ‘thickness’ and ‘strength’. Thicker does not equal stronger.
As you can see from the dart drop test, Longopac Standard is more than 50% thinner than your traditional bag liner, yet 4 times stronger.
The reason why a thinner bag (Longopac) is stronger than a much thicker standard bin liner is all in the construction. A standard bin bag is not typically made of virgin material. Longopac is. In fact, Longopac is made from 3-ply virgin polyethene, making it extremely strong.
As your standard bin liner is made from recycled polyethene its strands are weaker. The more it’s recycled the weaker it becomes hence the need to make these liners thicker. No matter how strong your standard bin liner is, it can never measure up to the quality of virgin 3-ply.
Longopac liners are available in wide range of strengths, liners and colours. Longopac is also proven to reduce your CO2 waste bag footprint by up to 70%,
