NYLON WOOL PACKS
To stay competitive in the world market, it is imperative that South African wool, in line with global trends should be marketed in Nylon wool packs. The South African Wool Industry has taken a stand on this issue and decided that only nylon packs would be acceptable as from July 2007.
Conventional nylon packs available to S.A. producers are imported and are sold at relatively high prices. A weakening Rand will in time push up wool pack prices even further.
For this reason Natwool Trust and BISA joined forces with South African manufacturers to develop and manufacture a South African Nylon wool pack. This initiative was a great success. The Natwool/BISA wool pack has been tested rigorously in practice and performed very well. It was also tested by the S.A.Wool Testing Bureau and results indicate the pack to surpass all the strength requirements as per SABS 1860 for Nylon Wool packs. The dimensions of the pack is aimed at ease of handling and is in line with industry requirements for trouble free handling of wool packs.
Thousands of packs have already been used in the 2006/2007 season and clients expressed their satisfaction with the packs in all aspects.
