Bulk bags are being used in more situations than ever before. Construction, food, pharmaceutical, and many more industries are continually finding more uses for them in an exciting trend for bulk bag suppliers. However, certain industries and applications require bags that meet very stringent specifications in order to handle the materials contained in the bag. This is particularly relevant in industries that deal with hazardous materials and volatile chemicals.
In the first part of our two-part series on the rigorous testing procedures that UN Certified Bulk Bags go through, we covered bag preparation for testing, the vibration test, the top lift test, and the stack test. If you missed this post, be sure to click here and check it out.
Transporting and storing hazardous materials presents unique challenges as well as stricter regulations. These increased regulations coupled with the hazardous nature of the products being stored and transported require a specialty FIBC product: UN Certified Bulk Bags.
If you’re currently using FIBCs to transport/store hazardous materials, chances are you’re already using UN bulk bags. If you’re not, then read this blog and find out if UN bags are a good fit for you.
In certain situations involving the storage and transport of hazardous materials, a standard FIBC won’t suffice. Standard bags are chemically resistant from manufacture because of the woven polypropylene in which they are constructed; certain materials are too corrosive and/or dangerous to use a standard bag.
