Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I tell which AEP Food Film is best for me?

A: The SealWrap brand is the industry leader. It has been the professional's choice for over 20 years. The SealWrap cutter box has the classic graphic design with a new "wipeable" surface.

AEP's exclusive GraterEdge blade offers superior cutting performance with unmatched durability and safety. The result is the industry's most efficient producer delivering the right cling for the tightest seal.

The new ZipSafe is the first cutter box with a disposable slidecutter. It is the ideal solution for safety, performance, and waste reduction. No more cut fingers and no more wasted film. Cling Classic is our generic version of our Food Film. It delivers the quality and standard of AEP Food Films at the best price.

Q: Will the SlideCutter fit any box?

A: No, it's designed to fit only AEP cutter boxes and dispensers.

Q: Why are liners made from Metallocene resins better?

A: Metallocene is the latest resin technology producing the strongest bags ever made. It has all the strength of high density bags without the zippering. It has up to 10 times the dart strength of other bags, along with tear strength and elasticity of hexene liners. It meets performance specifications for both high density and linear low liners. It is the highest quality can liner from the lowest cost producer. Application and the cost are what will help you decide which bag is right for you. Your AEP sales rep can assist you in your decision making process.

Q: Why is the HexSeal a better seal, and how is the HexSeal different from a star seal?

A: Gusseted bags and flat bottom bags do not evenly distribute weight and are much more likely to leak, while HexSeal bags are 99.9% leakproof. Because of the unique construction, bags with a HexSeal will hold more volume than bags with a star seal, and do not need extra length to compensate.

Q: Where and how can I purchase IPD products?

A: AEP has over 50 sales reps across the United States, with at least one in each state. You can contact AEP headquarters at 800.999.2374 x7419 to locate an AEP sales rep in your area.
