TUF-R® PERFORMANCE RATED BAGS provide an excellent opportunity for users to lower their costs without sacrificing performance. By using thinner gauge TUF-R® BAGS instead of heavier gauge LDPE bags, our customers can save money and help reduce the impact on the environment. This is possible thanks to Tuf-R®’s unique resin blend that allows a thinner gauge bag to provide the same or better strength and puncture resistance than a standard low density bag of a thicker gauge.
The extra strength and durability of TUF-R® Bags often allow a lighter gauge bag to replace a heavier gauge LDPE bag, which can result in huge cost savings. This table shows both the performance and potential cost savings relationships between TUF-R® and LDPE.
