Multiwall Paper Bags vs PP Woven Bags: Which Is the Best Choice for You?

Palmetto Industries has multiple bags and storage options available, but which option is best for your industry? There are always liners and different adapters available to make certain options work, but getting the best fit early is more cost efficient.

Here are a few details about multiwall paper bags and PP woven bags to understand their versatility and differences.

What Are Multiwall Paper Bags?

Paper bag options are available for pet food, seed, minerals, chemicals, yard waste, and many other applications. These aren’t your flimsy grocery or basic yard clipping bags; the multiwall feature means so much more.

Enhanced structure and better protection are two major benefits of multiwall paper sacks. Standard brown paper bags, even the stiffer bags used for lawn care or groceries, can easily burst when filled at high, fast volumes.

Leakage and tearing from even slightly humid conditions can threaten to spill materials and product very quickly. Materials could be moist or may easily absorb moisture from the air, which could lead to slow and hard to observe internal damage.

Basic paper bags aren’t designed for industrial use, so it’s hard to gauge how much load or compromising conditions the bags can take.

Multiwall paper sacks are purpose-driven, well-documented, and customizable bag options. They have specific weight limits, safety precautions to help you avoid certain conditions, and standard durability that is obviously stronger from touch alone.

Structural Integrity Stays Intact

If your industrial process involves filling bags with cornered, sharp, or jagged seeds from a hopper at fast rates, reinforced bags are your best bet. If you’re increasing your farm’s lines of business and adding additional processes such as internal feed delivery, mulch management, manure management, or in-bag planting, multiwall bags are a great choice.

Wet materials and paper bags don’t mix well. Some clients may be fine with a bag that will deteriorate on-site, but for most industrial uses, a wet bag is just a burden. There is a middle ground, and aside from your own compliance rules, there’s nothing wrong with getting creative.

If you need paper bags for aesthetic reasons, but need greater structural integrity, make sure to speak with our product management team to discuss liners and other custom solutions.

What Are PP Woven Bags?

Recyclable polypropylene woven bags or PP woven bags are delivered in easily stored, easy to transport rolls. These bags are a groundbreaking combination of lightweight, compact storage that unrolls into massive structural integrity and high-volume storage.

PP Woven bags are mildew resistant, reusable, and can float for industries that need water loading and water surface management. The bags don’t absorb water and are moderately resistant to stretching and shrinking.

If your industrial process needs strong, moisture and mildew-resistant storage options, PP woven bags are the best choice. These bags have higher weight capacity options than the paper bags and can be designed to fit assorted loading and lifting systems.

Flexible for More Product

The flexible, woven design allows filling that can roughly mold to corner and surfaces. Unlike rigid storage containers, you can store more product while wasting less space.

This is especially helpful with small materials and products such as grains, pharmaceutical, minerals, pellets, and fine powders. Filling rigid containers makes unloading difficult, especially when you need to scrape corners or work through hard-to-reach textures, and the bag design helps.

Another advantage of woven bags is the unloading process. Woven bags can be fitted with spouts, ports, or other unloading options that you can design with the help of a Palmetto Industries consultant.
