Why FIBC Bags Are a Must For Chemical Producers



When working with chemicals, there are plenty of factors to keep in mind to ensure safe and efficient operation. For starters, you have to make sure that you’re following the proper safety regulations while storing, transporting, or disposing of the chemicals. 

Whether it is organic minerals or dangerous chemicals, you have to use reliable, sturdy packaging to keep them safe and contamination-free. FIBC bags or polypropylene fabric bags are known to do that job better than any other kind of container in the market today. 

FIBCs: Store and Transport Your Chemicals in the Safest Way Possible

FIBC bulk bags are made with the highest-quality polypropylene resin material, making them resistant to pretty much anything you can think of – chemicals, water, contamination, fire, and even explosion. 

These bulk bags are incredibly strong and can easily carry a wide range of acids and bases, including sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide, ammonia water, and bleach. At Palmetto Industries, our FIBC jumbo bags can even hold 4,000+ pounds of your preferred chemicals.  

Another reason to choose FIBCs to transport chemicals is that these bags can withstand static energy charges. As you probably already know, most chemical manufacturers can’t use Gaylord boxes to ship their materials due to the risk of static energy alone. 

Our FIBC bags are, however, specifically designed to handle and dissipate any type of electrical charge created during packaging and transporting the goods. If you’re worried about static energy, go with the Type C or D FIBC bulk bags.

Type C bags are made from woven and non-conductive polypropylene resin, while Type D is made from woven and anti-static fabric. You will need to ground the Type C bags but Type D bags prevent discharges and sparks without you having to ground them. 

UN-Certified FIBC Bags

We also offer UN-certified FIBC bags to carry hazardous chemicals and dangerous waste products in the safest way possible. These special bulk bags are created while following the stringiest safety protocols set by the UN for chemical industries. 

No matter how dangerous or volatile your products are, our UN-certified FIBC bags can store and transport them in bulk, without compromising the safety of your workers or customers.

In addition to undergoing extensive testing procedures, these bags are also specifically labeled to easily identify the bag contents. This is a critical part of the packaging process because the labels notify the handler of what’s inside the bag and how to handle it carefully. 

Play it Safe, Choose Palmetto Industries FIBC Bulk Bags

FIBC bags can improve the efficiency of your entire business operations by their easy-to-fill and easy-to-empty features. Forget about handling and then slitting the bags; your workers can empty the FIBCs directly into your processing equipment. 

If you’re looking for the optimal solution to handle chemicals, with a minimum of air and dust contamination, you can’t go wrong with FIBC bulk bags. Also, FIBCs will save you a ton of storage space since they are completely collapsible.
