Our books are carefully and professionally packed by our shipper. They’re wrapped in cardboard “burritos” to ensure that edges and corners stay sharp, then packed with peanuts or air packets in a cardboard box.

They’ll arrive crisp and ready to sell!

Rope Packaging

 

Humidity Control


Jute is the most hygroscopic of the natural fibres. It can absorb up to 34% of its mass in water, without feeling wet. Jute also has a very high cellulose content, which, when combined with high water absorption, makes jute unusually vulnerable to dry rot.

Dry rot is caused by fungi that consume the jute for food. Dry rot is a bit of a misnomer because it actually requires moisture to occur. However, once rot takes hold, very little moisture is required to sustain the process.

We package our rope in vacuum-seal bags to prevent moisture from reaching the jute, thus preventing dry rot. Once the rope reaches your establishment, you must keep it dry. The easiest way to do this is to leave the rope in its vacuum-seal bag. If you wish to remove the ropes from the bags, you must ensure that you store them in a cool, dry area. If the relative humidity in your establishment ever exceeds 60%, you must protect the rope. Dry rot begins at 65% relative humidity. If you do not have a method for storing the rope in an area with proper humidity control, do not remove them from the vacuum-seal bags.

Store your rope below 65% relative humidity at all times. Once germination takes place, dry rot can proceed in as little as 20% humidity.
