What's new in paper and plastic bags

Bag innovations are not only making bags stronger, more reliable, and more attractive, but easier to fill, seal, store, and ship and easier for your customers to handle and empty. This article introduces several improvements in paper and plastic bags that can enhance your dry bulk solids bagging operation and your customers' satisfaction.

Chemicals, cement, salt, minerals, feed and seed, and food products are just some of the dry bulk products commonly packaged in bags. Paper and plastic bags are available in several styles to handle various products and customer requirements. Common paper bag styles include pasted-valve bags, sewn bags, pinch bags, and satchel-bottom bags. Common plastic bag styles include shipping sacks [premade open-mouth bags] and premade valve bags. Plastic materials for automated bagmaking are also available as tubular rollstock and flat sheeting.
