What’s so great about large bulk bags? Erm, the question is what isn’t?! Bulk bags, tote bags, or FIBC’s (flexible intermediate bulk containers), are industrial containers made from woven polypropene fabric that can be used in countless applications, which is the main reason they are so popular.
Bulk Bags are chiefly used for a variety of carry goods, with weights as low as 250kg up to 2000kg.
Although there is disagreement on exactly where FIBCs were first made and used, they have definitely been employed for a variety of packaging purposes since the 1940s.
Bulk bags were first manufactured from PVC rubber and generally utilised within the rubber industry for the transportation of carbon black to be used as a reinforcing agent in a variety of rubber products. It was at the end of the 19th century when a German scientist, Hans von Pechmann, discovered a waxy residue at the bottom of his test tube. With the development of polypropylene and the advances in weaving, bulk bags as we know them today were first made.
The nature of polypropene fabric allows the container to be very flexible, making it easy to be stored when not in use. It is quite remarkable how many things can be and are carried in bulk bags. They are used in so many industries, including chemical, pharmaceutical, food and building, to name but a few!
