A list of frequently asked jumbo bags questions

FIBC bags, also known as jumbo bags, have become extremely useful in transporting a wide range of goods in large quantities. These bags are long-lasting, safe, and sanitary, making them ideal for reusing.

These packages are available in a variety of sizes and each serves a specific purpose. The following is a list of frequently asked questions about jumbo bags in use.

What is the material of the FIBC bag?

FIBC bags are made from 100% virgin polypropylene, a petroleum byproduct. FIBC stands for "Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container". FIBC bags are not small and light enough for efficient manual transportation, but they are also not large enough to be classified as bulk containers, such as a truck or railcar.

FIBC was first developed in Europe in the 1970s, but it has since spread to the Americas and other developing countries. FIBCs are now widely used in all industries that handle dry bulk solids, including food, synthetics, and even drugs.

2Is it possible to substitute another material for polypropylene?

The inside of the FIBC bags is lined with various types of polyethylene lined bags. Polyamides (nylon), other metal foils, carbon composite resins, and polyester... are all interesting materials.

2Dimensional Customization Types?

FIBC bags are available in a variety of sizes and styles, and they can be practically customized to any 3-D size to fit your item. The standard jumbo bag size is 90 x 90cm, and the FIBC height can be up to 110cm. Again, the customer does not determine the dimensions and features of the FIBC bags based on safety, usefulness, or convenience.

What is SWL?

SWL stands for Safe Working Load. The SWL of a FIBC bags is the bag weight rated for safekeeping.

What does 5:1 SF mean?

Standard FIBC bags are rated at a 5:1 Factor of Safety ratio according to ISO 21898 and that implies that the pack is specified to accommodate five times more working loads.

The safety ratio 5:1 is for single-use packaging. Multi-use or multi-trip FIBC bags are made with increased SF rates. The SF for FIBC multiple reuses is 6:1.

What is a UV inhibitor?

UVI is an additive added to plastic during the extrusion process that stands for ultraviolet inhibitor. It helps to protect jumbo bags from the damaging effects of UV rays, preventing them from deteriorating.

Is it possible to store FIBC packaging outside?

UV exposure will cause the FIBC bags to atrophy. At the manufacturing stage, standard FIBC packaging with a UV inhibitor is infused into the fabric. UV inhibitors are added in sufficient quantities to provide UV protection for approximately 1600 hours.

However, this is dependent on where the bag is discovered and the type of weather. UV rays vary in intensity and frequency in different parts of the world. As a result, FIBC bags should not be stored outside.
