FIBCs' are one of most versatile packing containers available. Therefore, these containers can be used to carry Chemicals, Pharmaceutical Drugs, Fertilizers, Fiberglass, Food Products, Grains, Shotcrete (concrete or mortar), Construction materials (sand, gravel), Pigments, Plastics, Refractory, Seeds, Peanuts, Starch etc.
- An FIBC can carry up to a thousand times its own weight
- Thanks to the different hoisting structures, secondary packaging is unnecessary
- You will save on warehousing. Empty FIBCs take up very little space
- By printing on the bags, you can use them as mobile billboards and mention essential product information
- Excellent possibilities for minimizing your waste flows (packaging weight per transported ton)
- Good recycling and reconditioning possibilities
- FIBCs can be delivered tailor made and can be customized to your manufacturing process and that of your clients
- Chemical Industries.
- Pharmaceutical Industries.
- Food Industries.
- Mining Industries.
- Building Industries.
- Petroleum Industries.
FIBC are most widely used packaging systems for Bulk Commodities. Cement, fertilizer and most of the chemicals, Food grains sugar and others use FIBCs while Plastics are the material of choice because of inherent advantages of functional performance and cost benefits. The manufacturer/processor of a product can bulk package a product in one country and ship to many other countries at a reasonably low cost where it is subsequently packaged in final consumer form in accordance with the regulations of that country and in a form and language suitable for that country.
Popularity and use of FIBC will continue to grow as handling becomes increasingly easier and cost savings are even more readily identifiable over other types of packaging. In our environmentally conscious world, FIBC offer an excellent alternative to the traditional packaging solutions as they can be reused as well as recycled and therefore minimize disposal problems. Being cubic in form, they can transport more material in the same footprint compared to cylindrical-shaped containers, and far more than might be shipped in the same space compared to packaging in consumer quantities.
Bulk Packaging has to be strong, durable, light in weight, provide adequate protection with increased storage/ shelf life, easily handled, cost effective, reusable, and recyclable and impact on environment should be minimum on holistic approach considering life cycle analysis of the packaging material. Composite FIBCs rely on plastic liners that can be filled and discharged with a variety of systems.
