The differences between type A, B, C, and D FIBC bags

FIBC bags (bulk bags, big bags, jumbo bags, super sacks) are used in many industries to store and transport bulk materials. High-quality FIBC bags ensure your products are packaged safely complying with global standards and regulations. However, there are many different types of Jumbo bags nowadays serving the specific needs of customers on the market. EPP Vietnam will help you distinguish the difference between types of bulk bags in this article.

Distinguish the differences between types of bulk bags

A Jumbo bag is a flexible container made from woven polypropylene used to store and transport solid dry bulk materials.

The differences between type A, B, C, and D FIBC bags

The product conforms to the requirements of scale, production capacity and avoids costly packaging mistakes. To help readers make the right choice for their industry, EPP will analyze the differences between FIBC types.

Type A FIBC bags

Type A bulk bags are manufactured from plain woven polypropylene with non-conductive fabrics. Since they are not antistatic, this bulk bag is not used for storing or transporting any flammable materials.


Type A jumbo bags

Manufacturers often recommend type A jumbo bags for packaging hard-to-burn materials. At the same time, this bag should not be used in a flammable environment with minimum ignition energy of ≤1,000mJ.

Type B big bags

Similar to type A bags, Type B bulk bags are also made of PolyPropylene (PP) fabric and other non-conductive materials. However, the fabric has a breakdown voltage of less than 6000V.


Type B Jumbo bags

Although Type B Jumbo bags can prevent discharge, they are not considered antistatic FIBCs because they are incapable of dissipating static electricity.

Type B FIBC bags are the ideal solutions for the safe transport of dry and flammable powdered products in an environment where there are no solvents or flammable gases around the bags.

Conductive Type C big bags

Type C FIBCs are made from non-conductive polypropylene fabrics interwoven with conducting threads in a grid pattern. When in use, the conductive FIBCs must be connected to the ground through a ground wire.

Type C Jumbo bags

The connection to the ground during loading and unloading is important for the safe use of Type C Jumbo bags. Conductive Jumbo bags can safely transport flammable powders. Unlike type B bags, groundable bulk bags are used even when flammable solvents or gases are present. The supplier recommends against using type C big bags without grounding or when the bag is damaged.

Type D FIBCs

Type D FIBCs are made from antistatic and static dissipative fabrics designed to safely prevent the occurrence of sparks, brush discharges, and propagating brush discharges without the need for a connection from the bag to the ground. Type D Jumbo bags are chosen to securely pack flammable products and handle products in inflammable or combustible environments.

Type D Jumbo bags

Antistatic bags are used safely in the transportation of flammable powder products. In addition, the bulk bag is also safe to use when flammable solvents or gases are present around. Customers need to be careful not to use them when the bags’ surface is contaminated or covered with conductive material, such as grease or water.

EPP has analyzed the differences between types of FIBCs. EPP is manufacturing and supplying all kinds of type A, B, C, D FIBCs. If you want to buy Jumbo bags, please pick up the phone and call us at +84 986 002 888 for detailed advice.
