FLEXIBLE INTERMEDIATE BULK CONTAINERS - FIBCs
Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBCs) or Bulk Bags as it is
popularly known today are giant size bags in drum or box shape. These
bags are made of high tenacity Polypropylene (PP) material and are UV
stabilized with certain additives such as Optical brightener to give
more shine to the bag and TiO2. They are produced in a range of
capacities from 250KG Safe Working Load to 2500KG Safe Working Load with
a Safety Factor 5:1 (Single trip) and 6:1 (Multi trip), depending on the
density of the bulk material that is handled in the bag. These bags are
normally tailor made to meet the specific requirements of the end users.
At BulkPack Exports Ltd. we provide a wide range of these Bulk
bags to meet today's diverse packaging requirements. We offer them with
different sizes, strengths, fabric weight, loop designs, top and base
designs, inner liner or lamination (outside/inside the bag) and various
printing options. We can do a maximum up to five colour printing on our
Bulk bags as per the customer’s requirement. Our FIBCs are made in
different colours and we can use multi-colour webbing to give them a
different and a unique look all together.

Standard FIBCs are the bulk bags used for fulfilling the very basic
requirement of the end users. They normally range from 500KG to 2000KG
SWL and are manufactured with a safety factor of 5:1 (Single trip) or
6:1 (Multi trip) usage. They can be manufactured in two types of Lifting
Corner Loop lifting
• U+2 Panel design – a very basic design where the belt of the FIBC is
stitched along the seams on both sides. These bags are also known as the
Corner loop bags since the belt only goes along the corners of the bag.
Cross Corner Loop lifting
• Circular woven design – a bag which is specifically designed to hold
the loop up for their easy access by the fork lift. The belt is stitched
on the fabric and a special reinforcement of fabric is done on the area
where the belts are stitched. A bag with such a design is popularly
known as Cross corner loop bag as the loops are crossing the corners of
the Bulk bag.
FIBCs are made with various ways of filling the bulk material depending
on the kind of industry.
• Open top
• Spout top
• Duffle top
The material may be discharged from the FIBC through a spout at the
bottom, which may have a “Star closure” or a “Pyjama closure”.
• Closed bottom (without discharge)
• Spout discharge
Spout discharge may also be with a B-lock, a special locking system that
enables the spout to stay intact and bear the extra load of the bulk
material in the FIBC.
FIBCs for certain unique/special purpose may have a filling and
discharge with a Velcro tie. This gives extra strength to the spout to
hold the material inside the FIBC and avoid any kind of a leakage or
contamination inside the FIBC.
A special band is put along the top seam of the Bulk bag known as a
parameter band to strengthen the loops of the bag and give more strength
to the whole bag. This band allows the loops to hold on to the fabric
and bear the pressure on the very top part where the seam between the
belt and the fabric is over and the loop of the Bulk bag just begins…
