Bag Features

Style

  • 4-Panel – a large bag with 4-panels sewn together like a box.
  • U-Panel – a large U-shaped bag with 2 side panels sewn to each of the opposite sides.
  • Tubular – Circular design eliminates side seams, thus improved stability, sift, and moisture resistance.
  • Baffle – Typically a 4-Panel or U-Panel construction and employ internal fabric baffles to make the bag square.
  • UN Certified – Designed to store and transport hazardous materials. Our bags are certified for Packing Groups 2 & 3.
  • Ventilated – Manufactured from woven polypropylene to allow airflow.
  • BRC/AIB – FDA Food Grade: free of contaminates.

Fabric

  • Color Options – Yellow, green, white, black, blue, red (minimum order quantities required).
  • Uncoated – Standard polypropylene fabric.
  • Coated – Fabric that is laminated with polypropylene film.
  • Conductive – Fabric which conducts electrostatic charges.
  • Ventilated – Fabric that is breathable.
  • Type C Groundable – Designed to control electrostatic charges by grounding. The fabric is woven with interconnected conductive carbon tape and ground tabs.
  • Type D Dissipative – Designed with static protective fabric that does not require grounding. Delivers safety levels equal to that of Type C without grounding.
  • Non-woven Polypropylene – Fabric from bonded fibers.

Liner

  • Standard Loose Tube – Liner loosely inserted into the bag to fit any bottom or discharge spout.
  • Form Fit – Liner fitted to the design of the bag to maximize container and liner capacity.
  • Baffle – Liner added to baffles to stabilize the bag during filling.
  • Groundable – Conductive polyethylene liner.
  • Polyethylene Liner – Standard liner material used to control moisture contamination (thickness ranges from 2-5 mm).
  • Woven Polypropylene – Also known as a bag-n-bag, provides added strength and puncture resistance for heavy or sharp products.
  • Non-woven Polypropylene – Liner allowing liquid to filter out.
  • Sewn – Liner applied and sewn into the seams.
  • Glued – Method of adhering the liner to the bag.

Top

  • Open Top – Economical for in-plant use, but not optimal for packaging.
  • Duffle Top – Top opens out of the bag for easy filling.
  • Inlet Spout – Top wraps around the filling spout for easy filling and spill-free shipping.
  • Conical Top – Allows optimal filling space for products that need time to settle.

Bottom

  • Flat Bottom – Basic polypropylene fabric bottom with no discharge capability.
  • Discharge Spout – Allows bag to discharge from bottom in a smaller capacity.
  • Full Bottom Discharge – Allows entire content to be discharged in one motion.
  • Conical Bottom – Designed to help the flow of discharge.
  • Closures – Tie closure, Velcro closure, diaper closure, star closure, drawstring closure.

Lift Loops

  • Side Seam – 4 loops sewn directly into the side seam.
  • Corner – 4 loops sewn on the top of each corner for easy fork lift access.
  • Cross Corner – 4 loops sewn across corners for easy forklift access.
  • Stevedore Straps – 4 loops sewn directly into the side seam with 2 straps connecting side loops.
  • Single Loop – 1 large loop connecting two opposite sides for easy crane access.
  • Sleeves – 2 sleeves sewn on opposite sides of the top for easy forklift access.

Seams

  • Standard – Used for applications where sift-proofing is not required.
  • Single Filler Cord – Single rope used to prevent product sifting.
  • Double Filler Cord – Double rope used to prevent product sifting.
  • Triple Filler Cord – Triple rope used to prevent product sifting.

Additional Safety Features

  • Perimeter Safety Bands – Band of support sewn along the top of the bag where most stress from lifting is found.
  • Double Reinforced Loops – Additional layer of webbing sewn throughout the lift loops for abrasion protection.
  • Lift Loop Wear Pads – Added layer of protection against wear and tear of lift loops.
  • Fully Belted Bags – Lift loop webbing sewn down both sides and across the bottom panels of the bag.

Accessories

  • Inlet Spout – Closure that covers the top spout to avoid leakage contamination.
  • Sift Proof Seams – Seams that offer tight closure against products that are very small to guard against the product contents sifting out of the bag
  • Velcro Ties – Used for bags that need quick and frequent opening and closing capabilities
