Tote FIBC bag, also known as FIBC, is one of the packaging bags that play an important role in transporting and storing export goods. Each production process is strictly controlled to ensure whether the charge inside and the bag’s surface is out of balance or not. To learn more about the product, you can follow this article with us.
Why is the tote FIBC bag divided into 4 types A, B, C, D?
When filling and discharging goods with a jumbo bag, static electricity is generated when the product rubs against the inner surface of the bag. Eliminating or preventing static electricity in FIBC bags is necessary when customers carry flammable products or hazardous substances. According to the static control of the woven fabric, tote FIBC bags are classified into four different types: A, B, C, and D. Each bulk bag has different features and usage procedures.
Type A Tote FIBC bag
Type A tote FIBC bags are made from polypropylene (PP) woven fabric and other insulating materials. These bulk bags provide no static protection as they are filled and emptied.

Therefore, they are not used to store or transport flammable materials or in explosive atmospheres. Type A big bags mainly transport materials or products that are normally difficult to catch fire.
Type B FIBCs
Type B jumbo bags have the same construction as type A FIBCs with no protective function to prevent static electricity. The difference is that its woven fabric has a breakdown voltage of less than 6 kV which prevents the occurrence of dangerous and highly energetic propagating brush discharges (PBD). This type of FIBC bag is used for dry, flammable materials, but without any flammable gases in the loading and unloading areas.

Although they can prevent product discharge, they are not considered antistatic bulka bags because they cannot dissipate electrostatic charge.
Type C FIBC Bags
Type C FIBC bags or conductive super sacks are made from non-conductive PolyPropylene woven fabric interwoven with conducting yarns sewn in a grid pattern. These yarns are usually black carbon conductive yarns. In addition, there are additional conductive carbon tapes on the body of the jumbo bag. When using this bag, workers will connect it to the ground through these carbon tapes to a grounding point. The connection to the ground during loading and unloading is critical for the safe use of Type C Jumbo bags.

These bulk bags are used to transport dry and flammable powder or chemicals. Conductive FIBCs are safe to use when flammable solvents or gases are present around the bag. Note: Do not use a Type C jumbo bag when the ground connection is not present or the bag has become damaged.
Type D FIBC bags
Type D Jumbo bags are made of antistatic and dissipative materials. Type D tote FIBC bags are designed to prevent the appearance of incendiary sparks, brush discharges, and propagating brush discharges, without the need for a connection from the bag to the ground.

Antistatic bulk bags can be used to safely pack flammable products even in flammable or combustible environments. Note: Never use this bag when the surface is contaminated or covered with conductive materials, such as grease or water.
