Buy Woven Polypropylene Bags

Looking to Buy Woven Polypropylene Bags?

If you want to buy woven polypropylene bags in South Africa, you have lot of options, and it is therefore essential to know what the exact requirements are for your product.

When it comes to agricultural products, woven polypropylene bags are very suitable, as it is a great material for packing and transport for vegetable and fruit products.  The flexible material cushions the product and will not bruise or damage soft or sensitive produce.  It is also very resilient and tough, and can carry heavy loads, such as pumpkins and squash, effectively and safely, without tearing or breaking.  The bags are designed to allow expansion and contraction of the bags, which will vary according to the produce which is being carried by the bag. 

Even though the bags are mass produced, they come in a variety of sizes which is most appropriate for the quantity and the variety of produce it is used for, and can cater for large as well as small items of produce.  It is essential to select the correct sizes when ordering your woven bags, as it has to be suited to the product.  Even if the bags are tough and strong, it is wise to order smaller bags for heavy items, as bags that are too heavy will influence how the product is handled, offloaded and uploaded. 

The bags are normally also colour coded in relation to the product that will be contained.  For instance, yellow bags are used for potatoes, while carrots can into orange bags.  This can improve the overall aesthetic of the product, making it more attractive to customers.

Various types of PP bags are manufactured, and there is now a choice when it comes to the density of the bags.  Where large amounts of products are to be contained, the density will be lower, and in the case of smaller quantities, the density will be lower.  The low density materials give the bags a consistency similar to a net, which allows for good air flow over the product.  This allows the produce to breathe and keeps condensation to a minimum, thereby preventing mould or decomposition, and so extends the produce lifespan.

The International Group of companies specialise in providing woven bags for agricultural produce, and manufacture the bags in knitted as well as woven formats.  We can also provide circular weave products.  All our products are available in a wide range of colours, specifications and sizes.

Their knitted vegetable bags are made from high density polypropylene and come in two to twenty five kilogram bag sizes.  They are pillar stitched to make them strong, and can be ordered in a wide range of colour to suit any type of agricultural crop.  The woven PP bags are made of virgin polypropylene and come in bag sizes from ten to twenty five kilograms in all the suitable agricultural colours.  The bags are closed up with polypropylene tape which keeps the produce safely inside the bag.  All of these have a very long lifespan and can be re-used.

The circular woven bags are made from virgin polypropylene with the addition of ultraviolet ray protection, which extends the lifespan of the bags to at least three months.  Various sizes are available in a wide range of colours to suit the produce.  These bags can be printed in accordance with the requirements of the customer.

In addition to providing high quality woven bags, the Internal Group of companies also offer a warrantee on their woven bags.  Should the customer find that more than 0.5 percent of the merchandise contains any defect resulting from a manufacture or material fault, we will replace the entire shipment of that product.  The original purchase invoice has to be retained by the client and presented upon any claim, as well as evidence of product damage as a result of faulty packaging.  The International Group will also carry out an on-site inspection to look at the faulty materials and damaged goods before products will be replaced.

What is Polypropylene?

What is Polypropylene and What Are the Uses?

On the question of “what is polypropylene?” one can start answering by first explaining what it consists of. Polypropylene has a specific chemical composition that is represented as C3H6. The substance is used in agricultural, consumer and industrial products as a fibre base or as a type of plastic.

Polypropylene is used in the making of products which must be able to hold their shape even at dishwasher temperature. As such food containers used in microwaves and dishwashers are often made from the substance. Because of its relative strong resistance to heat, the substance doesn’t warp when placed in warm water. As such it is the preferred base material for plastic food containers and plates which cannot be placed in ovens.

To further answer the question of what polypropylene is, one can also look at other uses. The substance is often used for the making of outdoor carpets and as the green area for putt-putt courses. Because the substance doesn’t absorb water, it is perfect for use in carpets around the pool area where other carpets would have soaked up water and thus become breeding grounds for bacteria.

Although not as strong as polyethylene, propylene can be used for bag handles and plastic lids. Where other substances would bend or stretch under the stress of repeated use, polypropylene will hold its shape. This of course makes it the ideal substance for plastic lids or bag handles that must be able to close, lock and open without the traditional hinges in place.

What are the Main Uses of Polypropylene?

The substance is used in the making of plastics for the vehicle industry, packaging companies, and for furniture, construction, and insulation. Although polyethylene is more in demand, polypropylene is also one of the most used substances for the making of packaging material.

Polypropylene is often used in the making of vehicle dashboards and panels. The substance can withstand various weather elements and being a good insulation material, it is often used as a type of building block which is then filled with concrete. It provides excellent sound and heat insulation.

Other products include that of:

  • Fishing nets
  • Medical dishes
  • Fast-food containers
  • Ropes
  • Artificial outdoor surfaces
  • CD covers
  • Upholstery
  • Bags
  • Toys
  • Appliances


Polypropylene film is used for the covering of foodstuffs such as meat and vegetables packaged in polystyrene containers. Sturdy forms are used in the making of container lids and plastic containers for dairy products. The substance is thus widely used although it is mostly found as a packaging material for food related products.

Woven Polypropylene Bags

Woven vegetable bags made from the substance are extremely strong and can withstand the general weather elements. The bags are often UV treated to ensure a longer lifespan for the products. Apart from bags, the substance is often woven to make carpets and other types of textiles for domestic use.

The cost of producing bags or other packaging materials by means of weaving is low ensuring lower prices for the end-user as well. The woven bags are sometimes used for military purposes while most are used in the agricultural industry.

The woven bags are made in a variety of colours and because of exceptional strength are used for shipment of heavy vegetable produce. Now that you have a better idea of what polypropylene is and understand the many applications of the substance, you will appreciate our range of packing products even more. We produce from woven bags to foam packaging materials for appliances and even food containers and plastic film.
