Polypropylene, also known as PP is a kind of thermoplastic resin that is manufactured by the polymerization of propylene. Woven Polypropylene bags are bags created by weaving filaments of PP threads into fabric. PP has many physical and chemical properties, which makes it an ideal choice as a packaging material. Listed below are some of the characteristics of PP:
High melting point of 167 °C
Tear-resistant, and waterproof.
Reusable and long-lasting
Resistance to stress
High-resistant to cracking
Resistant to most organic solvents, alkalis, and acids, and degreasing agents.
Applications of Woven polypropylene bags:
Woven Polypropylene bags are largely used in storing and packaging of agricultural products such as grains, seeds, vegetables, fruits, fertilizers, etc. What’s more, they can be used repeatedly.
Daily use bags
Woven-PP bags also find their application in retail stores, logistics, warehouses, etc.
They are being increasingly used to pack food products such as rice, flour, maize, etc.
Tourism and transport
PP woven fabrics are used to make travel bags, fences, temporary tents, sunshades, and screen mesh for construction sites.
PP is the most popular geosynthetic material, widely used in the construction of roads, railways, mines, irrigation works, buildings and more!
PP woven bags are a cost-effective way to prevent flood water damage. When these bags are filled with sand, they can serve as a barrier to avert flood water.
PP woven bags are also in much demand in pharmaceutical and sugar industry. Since they are tear-resistant, they can withstand rough handling situations during conveying, loading and transportation.
Demand in The International Market
Europe will continue to dominate the global woven PP bags market. However, the boost in retail and consumer sector in APAC (Asia-Pacific region) will make this region the largest market for woven PP bags in the near future.
