2. Types of Jumbo bags

The jumbo bags are available in different shapes like circular, U-panel, four-panel, baffle, and more. 

  • Circular bag; Tubular woven fabrics are used to make this type of bag. Tubular fabric is manufactured as a tube and does not need any side seam. This type of bag cannot retain its shape while holding materials in it. When products load in them, depending on the type of the material, it changes its appearance. You can compare it to a big tomato when fully loaded.
  • U-panel bag; This is better than circular-shaped bags. Two U-shaped woven panels joined together to make this type of bag. It can hold its cube shape much better than the circular bags while loaded.
  • Four-Panel bag; The four-panel bag is the standard option for getting a square shape when loaded with materials. Four pieces of woven PP fabric joined together to make the sides of the container. A separate square-shaped panel use for making the bottom of the bags.
  • Baffle bag; If cube-shaped packaging is required then, this is the most suitable option. Here four additional baffles are sewn at the four sides of the bags. So, it can maintain the cubic shape regardless of the material type loaded in it.type of jumbo bag

However, the bulge also needs to consider while calculating the size of the bags. When you fill the bags with materials, due to the load of the materials, it stretches. As a result, an increase in capacity. That is why manufacturers advertise a little more as the capacity of the bag.

What about the weight capacity of the Jumbo bags? The materials type you want to carry with the bags is also a crucial factor. A heavy-weight material must affect the volumetric range of the bags. If you load low-density materials, you can load them over, and if you carry high-density stuff, you must fill them low.

4. Materials used for making Jumbo bags

The Jumbo bags are produced from plastic woven fabric. The raw material of that woven fabric is a soft thermoplastic material named polypropylene.
