Slider bag

The Hefty® Slide-Rite® slider features improved filling and opening feature for heavier (15- to 65-lb.) bagged products. The product’s ½-in. wide strip replaces several feet of expensive film to save time, money and decrease raw material usage, the co. states. The structure is a 2-mL nylon extrusion coated with 2-mL of its proprietary Allegro® B peelable sealant. The nylon side offers good puncture strength and toughness, while the Allegro® B side offers easy-opening and visual evidence of a hermetic seal. In use, the strip is folded in half to create an inverted V. The outer legs of the inverted V are adhered to opposite sides of the slider’s seal area.
