Older packaging methods like cotton bags, jute bags, etc had been used to cart away agricultural produce and industrial products. Due to the inadequacy of these packaging methods to withstand various atmospheric conditions, much of the produce spoils causing financial loss and frustration to farmers and producers.
Polypropylene sacks are suitable for almost all the products that have used paper sacks, cotton bags, jute bags for packaging. These sacks are better suited for storage due to their strength, durability and ability to withstand water and pests. The use of polypropylene sacks is steadily increasing in the agricultural sector, with increasing agricultural yields and related industries; the scope of the industry is increasing.
Polypropylene woven sacks manufacturing units import polypropylene granules, convert it into tape yarn and this tape yarn is woven on an automatic loom to produce polypropylene cloth. The average weight of a bag is 75 grams. Polypropylene sacks are used to store and transport industrial and agricultural products like animal feeds, fertilizers, salt, cement, sugar, millet, dyes, pigments, maize, sorghum, plastic granules, rice, flours, pulses, polymers etc.
Polypropylene sacks are usually suitable for packing most of the goods that have been traditionally packed in jute bags. Ultra Pack (Pvt) Limited will focus on the demand for polypropylene cement bags in the cement industry in general and of Kohat Cement (an associated company) in particular.
