Polywoven & Heavy Duty Bags

Whether they're buying dog food or plant food, consumers don't think much about the bag. But if it's your brand's product inside, you need the contents to stay fresh, dry, pest-free — or simply contained. Our teams have developed multiple capabilities for packaging large format, hard to hold and specialty contents, with various closure options.

  • PRO-DURA™

    We're proud to be leaders in domestically manufactured woven bags, producing puncture-resistant structures that offer maximum flexibility and reliability. Our PRO-DURA bags feature high-quality graphic application, giving your product the best of both durability and appeal, and without the historically problematic shelf-worn look of paper bags with a clay-coated surface. Plus, we manufacture PRO-DURA in the U.S., meaning reduced lead times, lower shipping costs and greater quality assurance. And of course, our woven poly bags meet FDA and BRC standards.

    Features include:

    • Process printed up to 10 colors
    • Available in white or clear
    • Closure options: EZ-Open Tape, Pinch Heat Seal, Slider Zipper
    • Variety of lamination options
    • Runs well on automated or manual equipment
    • UV approved for 200+ hours (available upon request)
    • No flex cracking or tattered look

    Pinch-Bottom Woven Poly Bags

    Our exclusive pinch-bottom woven poly bags can be combined with a slider zipper, a pinch at both ends (we seal one end, you seal the other) and traditional sewn closures to meet any requirement. The new pinch closure also means increased graphic/advertising space and differentiation from competitors. What's more, our pinch woven poly bags perform like paper bags on existing heat-seal equipment.

    Features include:

    • Preferred by retailers
    • Maximum shelf appeal – superior graphic and print capabilities up to 10 colors
    • Environmentally friendly – half the carbon footprint of paper bags
    • Reduced shipping costs and landfill waste
    • Reduce damage claims by 65-75%
    • Increased moisture vapor transmission rate, keeping products dry
    • No delamination with high-fat products
    • Palatability
    • No flex cracking or tattered look

  • Heavy Duty Bags

    When you need a packaging solution that goes beyond polywoven, take a look at our heavy duty centerfold and open mouth bags. They provide the benefits of UV and water-based inks, and are a cost-effective option that is heavy duty, recyclable and designed to withstand the environmental rigors of outside displays.

    In addition, we offer centerfold rollstock and open mouth bag capabilities. Centerfold rollstock is primarily used for any horizontal form, fill and seal packaging equipment, which improves efficiency by eliminating the fold process involved with using flat rollstock. We also manufacture open mouth bags that are used for manual filling operations.

    Applications include:

    • Soil
    • Mulch
    • Fertilizer
    • Salt and ice melter
    • Wood pellets
    • Sand
    • Stone
    • Absorbents and cat litter
    • Minerals
    • Charcoal
