Currently, industries that are using bulk bags are:-
- Petrochemical & chemical products manufacturers
- Food manufacturers (e.g. sugar, flour, spices, wheat, milk powder)
- Construction related (e.g. cement, granite, sand)
- Agricultural related products (e.g. fertilizers, animal feed, grass). Industrial applications (e.g. scrap materials, copper coils & slag, sludge waste)
FIBC bags are manufactured by polypropylene woven fabrics that are stabilized against UV degradation. Each bulk bag can contain load capacities between 500kgs to 2000kgs with safety of 5:1 or 6:1 (5:1 is for Single use & 6:1 is for multiple use or for UN bags), depending on the bag design and size. Optional LDPE inner liner can be included to provide additional protection against moisture ingress.
Food Grade Bags: Food grade bulk bags are made with resins meeting FDA standards with the intent of putting food products into the bags. Food grade FIBCs are manufactured in a clean room facility that can be certified by a food safety standard like the American Institute of Baking (AIB), Safe Quality Foods (SQF), British Retail Consortium (BRC), etc.
