The bags also deliver significant reductions in leaker rates, and improved oxygen and moisture barrier protection. Unlike patch bags, ClearShield Retail allows sealing anywhere on the bag, thereby shortening the length of the bag. Bags contain no plasticizers or vinyl chloride-based resins. With thickness less than 4 mils, as well as the elimination of patches, caps or boneguard cloth, ClearShield retail bags also provide cost and environmental savings. Bags can be produced with high-impact 10-color graphics.
