Sandbags were originally designed for temporary flood defence and for military applications. They were originally available only in hessian (also known as ‘jute’) material but are now manufactured in different grades of both hessian and woven polypropylene.
Here we list some Q&A about woven polypropylene sand bags. This kind of bags can be used for flood protection barriers, traffic control, earthbag buildings, and so on.
What does “woven polypropylene” mean?
Woven polypropylene means a plastic material made by many polypropylene threads or tapes woven in two directions (warp and weft), to form a light but heavy duty fabric or film.
What’s the advantages using woven polypropylene bags as sand bags?
- Light but strong
- resistant to tearing
- don’t degrade when wet
- dust proof and water resistant
- won’t be affected by soil bacteria or attract any rodents
What’s the most common size for woven polypropylene sand bags?
14 inches by 26 inches. This dimensions, and the weight of sand a bag this size can hold, allow for the construction of an interlocked wall like brickwork. They are not too heavy to lift and move into place.
What’s the features available for better use?
Woven polypropylene sand bags can be top hemmed for filling easier. And it can be with ties on the side, which allow bags to be tied shut easily.
Heavy duty sandbags – UV stabilised woven polypropylene (plastic) – are treated to protect them against ultra violet light to give a longer life when exposed to the sun. These woven sandbags are ideal for more demanding temporary uses such as extended flood protection and defensive walls.
UV protection can be upto 1600 hours. In fact, you have to consider all other environmental factors, like humidity and bioregion and get prepared earlier.
Though UV protection is applied, polypropylene material MUST be stored in a dark place for a longer use.
