WhiteHall Products specializes in Can Liners. This is our bread and butter. We were one of the first companies to market compostable can liners and continue to lead the market with out of the box (but often copied) thinking. WhiteHall also builds your brand by putting your name on the liners, even a 4 color process label that really makes your company shine.

Product Line Details

WhiteHall Products specializes in Can Liners.

A sample of our can liners include:

  • HD can liners are about 3 times stronger and more durable than ordinary polyethylene liners.
  • HD can liners require two-thirds less petroleum/natural gas based raw material to manufacture. Because of this, they can be made about one-third
    the thickness of ordinary low density polyethylene can liners. This translates to one-third the shipping, storage and warehousing cost.
  • Substantial cost savings per liner (see above.)
  • HD can liners will rarely “zipper” if punctured.
  • HD can liners are extremely wide temperature resistant. They can be used in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees F to +212 degrees F.
  • HD can liners are USDA and FDA approved (natural colored liners only).

Linear Low Density Can Liners

  • Low density can liners provide maximum puncture and stretch resistance.
  • Useful for many multi-purpose applications.
  • Most prevalent type of can liners used in the industry today.
  • Can be manufactured in a wide variety of colors.
  • A lighter gauge has equal strength to traditional low density can liners.

Can Liner Information to Help You with Your Selection

Once you make your bag selection, you have a choice of packing options to work best with your storage and use needs:

  • Perforated (bags on a roll that are connected and are torn off the roll)
  • Interleafed (bags on a roll that are not connected)
  • Individually Folded (each bag is folded separately)
  • Flat Pack (bags are in a bundle of 20-30 and are folded as a stack)

What is Resin, Gauge and Seal?

Resin: another name for Polyethylene Resin used to manufacture can liners.

  • Low Density Polyethylene: This is used primarily for food bags and utility bags because it lacks film strength.
  • Linear Low Density Polyethylene: Bags made from this resin are highly puncture and tear-resistant. Bags made of LLDPE will provide
    the user with a good combination of strength and stretch. Great for sharper objects and tougher transport conditions.
  • High Density Polyethylene: This resin provides strength and stretch but less puncture strength than LLDPE. High density liners are
    available in lower gauges and are more temperature resistant. Great for paper and non-sharp objects.

Gauge: the term that is used to describe the thickness of the can liner.

  • Mil: LLDPE can liners are measured in mil. It is based on one hundred thousandths of an inch. For example, a .65 mil bag is 65 thousandths
    of an inch thick. LLDPE liners generally range in thickness of .35 milS to 4.0 milS or.00035 of an inch to .004 of an inch.
  • Micron: High Density thickness liners are sold on the basis of microns which is a conversion from mils to microns. High Density liners
    normally range from 6 micron to 24 micron or .00023 of an inch to .001 of an inch.
Seal: How the bag is secured at the bottom.
  • Star Seal: This is the strongest seal and the most common. It allows the trash can liner to easily conform to the shape of the
    container and limits leaks. It maximizes the bags carrying capacity and helps distribute the weight in the bag more evenly
  • Gusset Seal: This is a flat style manufactured with both sides tucked in to form a gusset. This is generally a weak seal.
  • Flat Seal: This is generally a two dimensional bag with a bottom seal. These are generally strong but do have a high leak potential
    in the corners with wet trash. They also do not conform well to the shape of the containers they are used for.
