With so many bin liners and garbage bags available from so many places - what is the best way to figure out the most appropriate bag for your needs?
Well there are really only 2 steps.
That's really all their is to it! However, you should be mindful of a few important things...
THICK, HEAVY GAUGE BAGS OF POOR QUALITY
"Thick, heavy gauge bags of poor quality" are quite insidiously designed. This is because in the past - large buyers had tendered out these types of products on an "as specification" basis. These “Thick, Heavy Gauge, Poor Quality” bags would always pass all weight / gauge testing procedures without any problem.
However, in actual use – there were virtually useless. They were made from the cheapest raw material and the resin was diluted with various additives designed solely to add weight to the end product. The resulting final product would perform horribly on tensile strength and elongation tests. This meant that the final product would be thick, heavy and be ripped and torn with ease.
Whilst they could pass all weight / gauge testing - they ultimately failed spectacularly in real life applications.
We were quite frustrated with these products and made a video to demonstrate the problems with them - which can be seen below.
This video was created to show how easily the heavier bag ripped under pressure – particularly when compared to the Maxpak GH16 product.
FILM THICKNESS IS NOT A SATISFACTORY STANDARD FOR JUDGING OVERALL STRENGTH
Essentially, film thickness is no longer a satisfactory standard for judging overall strength. The development of resin grades in the industry have allowed manufacturers to produce end products which use less raw materials yet outperform previous generations of product. For example, one of our best selling products the GH16 is one of our thinnest products. It can be seen under 20kg test load below.
Previously, it would not be possible to get such a thin bag to carry such an excessively heavy load.
The GH16 was a ground breaking product for our company and continues to be commercially successful for our company. Never before had such a cost effective bag been able to perform so well. Whilst it took some time for this market to be developed, it is now a mainstay for our Company.
Each manufacturer has its own blend proprietary formulations, so the proportions of these materials will vary from one producer to another. The best way to determine the correct liner is to actually test some suggested samples.
This sounds easy - because there are common descriptions such as "72 litre bin liner", or "240 litre garbage bag", etc. etc. But did you know that these "descriptions" of bin liners actually vary throughout Australia? For example, a "72 litre garbage bag" in Melbourne can be different to a "72 Litre bin liner" in Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane or Sydney! That's because the "litre" description came from the garbage bin manufacturers, who all had slightly different ways of doing things.
The best way is to know exactly what bin liner dimensions (length and width) you need. If you aren't sure, or if you have a custom sized garbage bin receptacle then you can use the following method to estimate the ideal size you need:
We now have stock of black hair nets to go along with the rest of our hygiene product range.

Maxpak is pleased to introduce these specifically designed bags for carrying hot food.
These types of bags have been popularised by hot chicken retailers in their effort to cultivate the increasing adoption of ready to eat foods in our community.
These bags make a prominent statement in the retail presentation of hot food products - not only for Hot Chicken (full chicken or chicken pieces), as well as other hot meats and foods.
The Hot Chicken Bag and Hot Fresh Food Bag offers the following benefits:
Maxpak have developed and used an advanced poly material for both of these bags. The use of this material:
Craig Ivor Bowen was an integral part of the Maxpak team for over a decade. He began work in May of 1998 before leaving the Company to pursue opportunities in New Zealand in 2003. He returned to Maxpak in May of 2005. For many in the industry, he was "Mr. Maxpak". He was incredibly well liked, knowledgeable, professional and hard working. Craig passed away on January 15, 2014. He is the father of Courtney, Bryce and Lachlan. Son of Christopher and Christine.
Craig will leave a deep legacy at Maxpak - much greater than the substantial business he developed, or the accounts and products he worked on during his tenure. With his easy smile and witty observations on football, dating and politics, he was a source of endless cheer to those around him. His effort, determination and business acumen fueled much of our Company's growth.
The below text was read by his colleague Shane Young at his funeral on Friday 31st January, 2014. We will miss him dearly.
