Type of FIBC Bags
Two-piece, U-Panel construction that has two seams sewn along the two opposite sides to create two panels, creating a “U” Panel shape. Accepted as the industry standard around the world, the U-Panel FIBC is the most popular FIBC shape. This construction gives the bag a largelifting capacity.
It is the original polypropylene design, Four-Panel Bulk Bags (FIBCs) have seams along four separate pieces of fabric that are sewn together to construct the body of the bag as well as having the top and bottom panels sewn in. Four-Panel bags tend to hold their shape better than other types of bags and are better suited for stacking
A Circular or Tubular bag is woven into a cylinder or tube and cut to the correct size. The most common construction type is a circular fabric on the body with a sewn square base. As there are no seams in this construction, this creates for a more aesthetically pleasing bag, and with only a top and bottom panel sewn into the bag, they are ideal for fine and hydroscopic materials. The tubular body design is also ideal as a liner-less option for fine materials and is recognized for its ease of lifting and manipulating with a forklift.
The Conical Bag is designed specifically to assist in the complete discharge of contents, which are slightly sticky, like brown sugar and premix flour products. The conical shape at the bottom of the bag ensures that the bulk bag can be discharged quickly and easily.
FORM-STABLE or BAFFLE BAGS
This special Baffle construction offers maximum stability to the bag. There are 4 baffles sewn to the main fabric at each corner to prevent bulging of bag when filled, allowing for a more effective use of the bag’s storage capacity. Four rigid cross corner loops allow the forklift operator to pick up bags without the requirement of additional staff. The Baffle Bag is ideal for light-density products and can be more economical as it increases payload - the larger panel width allows corners to be filled with 25%-30% more product. Another advantage is the increased stack-ability and with all sewn edges turned to the outside, it reduces potential of contamination.
