The weaving method is divided into two categories: plain-woven mesh bags and warp-knitted mesh bags.
Plain weave mesh bags are divided into three types: large net, medium net, and small net according to different warp and weft densities.
Warp-knitted mesh bags are divided into two types: large net and small net according to the density of warp and weft.
Specifications: The specifications of the mesh bags are expressed by the effective size L*B, and there is no size series.


Tolerance range: length is +2 to _1.5cm, width: +1.5 to -1.5cm.

The average mass deviation per bag is ±6%.
Appearance Quality


  • Color: There should be no obvious difference between the same batch of products.
  • Stain: No obvious contamination is allowed.
  • Pocket edge: no obvious irregular convex and concave.
  • Serial bag: should be neat, with no obvious dislocation of the interval.
  • Broken weft and warp: Each mesh bag is allowed to have 2 non-adjacent ones, but they need to be firmly connected.
  • Needle removal: Not allowed.


Plain weave mesh bag, the bag edge, and bottom are sewn, generally using the flat stitch method or the chain lock method, the raw edge is folded in 2, and the width of the fold is greater than or equal to 1.3cm. 1/3 of the inner and outer edges of the hem. There are no jumping stitches, floating stitches, and backstitches that are not knocked down. The chain-lock stitching is located in the middle of the hem, and there are no jumping stitches and floating stitches.

Test conditions: The test machine is in accordance with the provisions of GB/T1040, and is adjusted for more than 4h at 23±2℃.
Test procedure: clamp the sample on the tension machine fixture (the sample of the warp-knitted mesh bag should be folded into a width of 50mm), the clamp spacing is 200mm, and the no-load speed of the testing machine is 200mm/min.
Record the maximum load of the sample during the tensile process, and take the arithmetic mean of 5 samples for the test result.

Testing regulations

Mesh bags require factory inspection and type inspection.

Decision rule

Length and width, appearance, and if any of the listed items are unqualified, the sample will be unqualified.
When the number of unqualified items exceeds 10% of the number of samples, the sample should be doubled to re-check the unqualified items. If it still exceeds 10%, the batch will be unqualified.
When the supply and demand sides have objections to the product quality, they can conduct arbitration inspections according to this standard.
