In cases in which the capacity of the flat bag or flat sack is not sufficient, it can be increased by adding a side gusset. The meat industry and the food retail sector, in particular, regularly require side-gusseted sacks. Side gussets make it possible to produce very large-sized sacks, such as are needed for waste-disposal sacks in containers, for example.
The bags are manufactured using HDPE and LDPE - the latter also as regenerate, in the case of waste-disposal sacks. For part-baked goods or other foodstuffs that are intended for freezing, we supply freezer-safe bags made of HDPE-HT. An additive in this ensures that the HDPE remains soft, even after freezing.
As with the flat bags and sacks, most of the side-gusseted bags COMCOPLAST produces are transparent, although a blue-translucent version is also available. On request, printing can also be selected.
