Physical Properties of Burlap
Strength - Burlap is exceptionally strong in proportion to construction, both in
tensile strength and tear resistance.
Resists Weathering - Burlap stands repeated wetting and drying with minimum loss
Versatility - Burlap is available in a wide variety of widths, weights and
constructions. It may be dyed or printed, sewn, treated for rot-proofing,
laminated, coated to meet any special requirement. It is a plain cloth woven from jute fabrics with single warp and weft, available as - Plain
,Treated (Rot Proof) ,Custom Printed
Burlap in Use
Burlap has many applications. Its great strength and low cost make it the ideal
textile for inner construction, for industrial packaging, and as the supporting
fabric for many materials which lack the intrinsic functional strength
required. The burlap bag affords low packaging cost for many commodities. This cost
advantage stems mainly from the rugged strength of the burlap bag which can
stand up to rough handling in transit - this often means additional economy as
freedom from breakage reduces handling costs and avoids loss of contents from
destruction of the bag.
Burlap spread over fresh cement and kept wet prevents cement from drying too
quickly and checking.
Burlap wind-breaks protect small evergreens in winter and makes an ideal barrier
against cold or sun.
When planting a lawn on a difficult slope or where seeds may be washed or blown
away, cover ground after seeding with burlap and tack it down.
Burlap wrapped around the trunk of a young tree will protect bark from field
mice, rabbits or during the shipment and handling of trees.
Burlap baling protects wool for shipment. In sheet, bag or tube form, burlap is
used for packaging many commodities, especially where abrasion resistance and
strength are needed.
Burlap is the perfect container for balling roots and earth when transplanting
trees and shrubs.
In furniture, rugged burlap inner construction, around springs and over frame,
adds strength and long life. Burlap webbing is also widely used to support
springs in upholstered furniture.
Burlap may be used as Squares, Sheets, Liners, Jute Hessian, Bags, Tobacco Wraps, Tubing, Jute Hessian Blankets, Camouflage Jute Hessian and general packing materials for
commodities such as cotton and wool. Jute Hessian cloth is generally used for packing or wrapping materials for agricultural products such as wool, cotton and tobacco and also in the upholstery industry.
Cloth is used for general packing of goods or commodities, such as cotton or wool.
Bags are used to store and pack varieties of goods and commodities such as sand, pulses, grain, potato, onion, sugar and tobacco. The bags are tailored for packing goods
up to 60 kgs of weight. These bags serve important purposes specially in geo-based industries and other industries such as construction, cement making etc.
