Non-woven fabrics are one of the fastest growing sectors of the textile industry in the world. They are strong, cheap, and easy to process, and during their production they emit less greenhouse gases than woven fabric.
Extrapack uses non-woven polypropylene for manufacturing of reusable bags, suit covers and other products. Since 2014, the company has produced this material in-house, on own line for non-woven polypropylene.
Non-woven polypropylene (PP) can be produced with grammage between 10 g/m² and 150 g/m², but the standard grammage for bags is between 70 and 120 g/m².
Non-woven PP can be printed directly with screen printing or flexo-printing but due to the structure of the surface, the halftones are limited. If full color printing is needed, lamination or digital printing may be options.
