fABRIC options for fIBC bags
Fabric Options for FIBC Bags:-
It is crucial to choose the right fabric type for the FIBC bags. We at Big Pack Global help our clients pick the correct fabric option according to the bag type ranging from Type A to Type D, the intended use, the required SWL, and the safety factors of the FIBC bag. The thickness of the FIBC starts from 90gsm. It could go up to 270gsm depending on the requirement, for example, a 35″ x35″ x60″ bag with a 1000 SWL and 5:1 safety factor could easily clear the load test with 140gsm fabric, but if the bulging needs to be controlled, then we recommend using 160gsm fabric for the same bag.
The FIBCs could be coated and uncoated based on the intended use of the bag. A 30gsm coating is applied on the bag to make them moisture-proof, prevent seepage from the body fabric, and keep the product safe from external contaminants. We use a special bonding agent to ensure our customers don’t face delamination problems with their bags.
The most common color for the FIBCs is the White color, the color option for the FIBC bag is entirely optional, and a customer can always request a colored fabric FIBC bag based on different requirements. It certainly attracts a price increase for small volumes, we at Big Pack Global recommend our customers to go for a minimum order of 5 pallets if they want to avail of this option at an economical price.
The best option to protect your bag from degradation is to put UV additive in the PP bag fabric recipe. The degradation process weakens the strength of the body fabric, which could result in product loss or jeopardize staff personnel’s safety.
Customers can opt-out If the bags’ shelf life is less and they are not exposed to environmental factors while stored in a protected environment. If they are exposed to sunlight during storage or transportation, we recommend using UV stabilized fabrics for the FIBCs.
The UV stabilizers are applied based on the time and the duration of sunlight exposure in a particular geographical area and how much UV it receives in a year. The standard option for the geographical regions that receive less UV is 150kly, and it could go up to 300Kly depending upon the location where the bags are stored and used.
