About our Bags
Polypropylene Bags also known as Woven Bags. These Bags, because of the strong material that it is manufactured (woven) with, is a very strong way of transporting and storing various products inside of the strong aesthetic clean bags. The Thickness of the manufacturing "woven" material is measured in GSM (grams per square meter). The heavier the product inside the bags or the more robust structure of the product that is inserted in the bags determines the thickness (gsm) of the material that it is manufactured of land needs to be manufactured of. The testing of the Polypropylene (Polyprop) material is performed in an up to standard testing facility weighing each time the exact same size of Polyprop material. The different weights of the exact same size material samples indicates the thickness, in other words, the GSM of the Polyprop material. Polypropylene material can also be UV treated which will enable the bags to last longer in direct sunlight where the bag material is exposed to UV damage. In the case where a very fine product is being inserted inside of the woven (Polyprop) bag and the product itself may be filtering through the "woven"  material the solution to stop the product from filtering through will be to laminate (treat) the Polyprop Bag material. Lamination of the Polyprop Bag material is where the "woven" Polyprop material is covered with a plastic layer and the layer is attached to the "woven" material with a heat process which prevents any product to filter through the bag itself. Polypropylene (Polyprop) Bags are suited for the printing of customer logos of any kind of design or print which the customer would prefer. There are two methods of labeling a bag with a logo or print and they are either normal printing or BOPP printing. Normal printing is where normal ink is applied to a raw Polypropylene Bag without any additional plastic layer and so on. Bags can in both types of printing be printed on the front and on the back / reverse side of the bag. BOPP printing is where the logo/print is printed on a plastic layer and again with a heat sealing process attached permanently to the Polyprop Bag. the advantage with the BOPP printing is that the quality of the logo/print is very high standard and almost the same quality of a real live photo finish. An example of BOPP method printing is the dog food bags with the dog in front looking like a real dog itself in photo quality. The disadvantage of the BOPP method of printing is that this method is much more expensive than the plain or conventional method. The plain/conventional printing of Polypropylene "woven" Bags is the most cost efficient method of printing with the quality of the print not of that high quality as BOPP method of printing. We normally suggest to customers just starting a new business to start using the plain/conventional method which is not that much expensive and on a later stage as their finances grow to consider the BOPP printing method which will also help the marketing of their product through the better quality logo on their packaging. The Polypropylene Bags is manufactured in different sizes to contain different weights of products inside of the bags which is determined by the customer's needs. The different weights for which the bags are being manufactured varies from 5kg and goes up to 2000kg weight capacity per bag. Our smaller size (5kg-80kg) Polyprop Bags are cut into various sizes with on opening left open and the other stitched closed. Our Polypropylene Bulkbags which varies from a 400kg capacity to 2000kg capacity is manufactured accordingly to the client's specific needs. We strive to make our bags in a preferred way according to the customer needs to in effect help the customer's production system by simplifying and optimizing their packaging process. Our Bulkbags have different manufacturing options for the top of the bag and again for the bottom/end of the bag. The top of the bag can be open or closed by different option closures as well as the bottom of the bag again, helping with the discharging of the product inside of the bag. It comes down to us, the manufacturer, of Polypropylene Bags to use our knowledge and expertise and caring about your business to give you, the client, an effective and good quality Polypropylene Bag product, helping you to sell, store and transport your products accordingly to your needs.

Polypropylene Bags: What you need to know

We live in a world of plastic bags. At every shop you visit, you will be asked if you need a plastic bag for the items that you have bought. When you order something online, it will arrive wrapped in a box with plastic either covering the box of covering the items that are inside. And then there is the plastic that we have in our homes, for the kitchen and household waste and occasionally even for the pot plants.

While we simply refer to them as plastic bags, polypropylene bags is the correct term.

Bags can and are made out of a variety of plastics, but polypropylene is certainly the most common plastic used. Polypropylene bags are the better option since they require less materials to make and the items that you pack them into will take up far less space than say a jar or box. Plastic bags are also a better option for packaging as they are more environmentally friendly and can be easily recycled, depending on what they have been made out of. They are often converted into energy when incinerated in an appropriate facility.

Why polypropylene bags the better option?

Strong bags that are easy to carry, make polypropylene bags a popular choice. These bags can be easily carried using the handles which most of these bags have. Their strong quality is a fantastic security feature as the bag will not be easily broken. Most polypropylene bags have a woven quality which gives the bags the extra strength quality.

These bags can have a few extra features such as sealing zipper strips along the tops of the bags. Such bags are wonderful for use in the kitchen, keeping food products fresh in the fridge for longer periods of time.

The polypropylene plastic shopping bags

These are the kinds of bags that you will find in shops all over the country. It is common to have to buy your plastic bags these days as part of the government’s efforts to minimise the amount of litter caused by plastic bags, but shops still keep quality plastic bags available. Shopping bags are probably the most common form of polypropylene bags and they have uses that go beyond just being a shopping bag. Here are some of the other things that polypropylene bags can be used for:  Use the bags within the home 

Using plastic bags in the home is a great way to save costs while being innovative. Plastic bags can be used in your dustbin in the place of a separately bought dustbin bag. This will give the bag another useful purpose while also helping you to save money. And as mentioned above they are fantastic when used for gardening with potted plants.  Use the bags to be creative 

A wonderful way to give a plastic bag new life is by turning it into something creative. There are many creative projects that you can try, do some online research. Most of the creative projects are simple to do.

So just how much do you know about silex sheeting?

If you haven’t heard of silex sheeting you might find that it is one of the packaging products that you have been missing out on. On the other hand if you haven’t heard of silex sheeting before it probably has to do with the fact that silex sheeting has another name which is silicone sheeting.

A product that is used in many industries, silex sheeting is actually quite a useful product. Silex sheeting comes in a variation of sizes, thicknesses and colours. While the term silicone sheeting is often used in the medical industry, silex sheeting is something that is not used for packaging but which is rather designed to be used in large sheets. And this sheeting has become very useful in the agricultural industry.

Silex on working farms.

Farmers working with livestock are always looking for new ways to keep their animal feed fresh. And they have found an interesting solution with this particular type of sheeting. Silex is fantastic for when you want to keep light and air way from a product, which is why farmers have been known to cover their fodder with a layer of silex sheeting.

Because of its durable properties, silex will not tear and is resistant to pretty much anything you throw at it. This tough sheeting is ideal for use on the farm, where it will be getting plenty of wear. Unlike other sheeting, which can be damaged when left under the sun permanently, silex sheeting is UV resistant. And because it is available in long, wide sheets, it can cover large areas on the farm.

Fresh fodder is needed to ensure that your animals produce the highest quality products. Whether farming with animals destined to become food, or if you are farming with dairy animals, having quality, fresh fodder is very important. Fodder is not something that is going to be bought in small quantities. The most affordable way to purchase fodder is to do so in bulk, but then the fodder needs to be kept fresh.

South Africa experiences dry weather often leading to droughts, often making it difficult to grow feed for the animals. And even if the feed is grown on the farm, it also needs to be kept safe from decaying elements after it has been harvested. This is why silex sheeting has become such an important feature on farms with livestock. Helping farmers save money and helping them ensure that their animals always have enough quality feed is much desired on any farm.

Pallet wrap

Pallet wrap is that versatile plastic that is used to cover items that are placed on a wooden pallet. This strong plastic is fantastic for keeping products safe while they are being transported, but there is a way that the plastic wrap can be strengthened. In this article, we are going to share some tips with you for how you can get the most out of your product.

All sorts of products benefit from the safety provided by plastic pallet wrap. Products that are being transported all over the world are often securely packed onto a pallet before plastic sheeting is either manually or automatically wrapped over it. This method allows packing companies to stack the products high without worrying about their precious cargo going adrift. Normally the products that are being transported will already be packed in boxes, but that is no guarantee that the products are going to be kept safe during their journey. This is where plastic wrap has really come in handy, and this is also where the wrapping has gone to the next level.

Heat the wrapping to give it strength

One of the most popular ways to make your plastic extra strong is to apply some heat to it. Often when loose goods are being transported, the best way to make sure that they are properly secure is to heat the pallet wrap around it. Heat pallet wrap will also securely bind the wrap to the pallet itself ensuring that the items on the pallet get that extra security. The pallet wrap you will need in order to be able to do this will either be the type that is available on a roll or it will come in the form of a bag. The wrap available on a roll is usually the better option as it has more value for money. The wrap will be more than enough for one pallet, making it work out a whole lot cheaper.

If you are looking to heat the wrap then you will need to make sure that the wrap you are working with can be heated. And if you can manually wrap the pallet tight enough than there won’t be a need to apply heat.

Getting the most out of pallet wrap

At Trunel Bags, we offer our clients pallet wrap on a roll. This type of wrap is available in large quantities, making it easier for clients to wrap numerous pallets while saving money. This type of pallet wrap is applied manually so you have the opportunity to put as many layers as you feel are necessary to secure the pallets.

When starting the wrapping it is best to take the slow approach. This will prevent the wrap from tearing or stretching. Should tears or stretches appear in the plastic, the wrap will be weakened, something you definitely don’t want. As the person doing the wrapping you should start the wrapping at the bottom and work your way up to the top. Only wrap in one direction, this will help you make sure that you don’t miss any area. To make sure that the base of the pallet is properly secured you can wrap the pallet at least 4 or 5 times, paying extra attention to the corners.

Once you have wrapped up the entire pallet you can start thinking about applying heat, should the items need that extra bit of security. If you have wrapped the pallet securely, heat won’t necessarily be needed.

With the wide range of bags, plastic packing and sheeting, Trunel Bags has many products for you to select. Each product is high-quality, guaranteeing that your package products are kept safe.
