The recycled-PET (rPET) fabric can be used to produce various types of sacks, providing a packaging for dry bulk goods. Due to a higher density of PET, the produced fabric is 30% thinner than woven PP, increasing storage capacity by 50%. The company says, its rPET fabric stands out for its aroma, grease barrier and food safety. The PET fabric is also more stiff, which the company says, makes the bags easier to handle.
