FIBC Bulk Bags: Understanding their Water Resistance and Ways to Make them Waterproof
FIBC Bulk Bags have become increasingly popular globally due to their versatility, affordability, and flexibility to fit multiple applications of different industries. They are renowned for their excellent benefits, outstanding features, and resistance against moisture, dust, dirt, and other natural contaminants. In this blog, we will be addressing the most commonly asked question about FIBC Bulk Bags – whether they are watertight or waterproof, and how they can be made watertight or waterproof.
Are FIBC Bulk Bags Watertight or Waterproof?
Many people assume that FIBC Bulk Bags are watertight or waterproof, which is not accurate. FIBC Bulk Bags are manufactured from woven polypropylene (PP), and the woven fabric is neither watertight nor waterproof. Therefore, FIBC Bulk Bags are neither watertight nor waterproof.
Can FIBC Bulk Bags be Made Waterproof?
Although FIBC Bulk Bags are not inherently waterproof, there are several ways to make them waterproof or prevent the materials from leaking out of the bag. One of the best ways to achieve this is by using a polyethylene liner as an additional protective layer. A poly liner is a thin piece of plastic that can be fit on the inside or outside of an FIBC Bag, acting as a moisture-resistant barrier. However, it is essential to note that the poly liner doesn’t make the FIBC Bulk Bag entirely waterproof.
At Bulkcorp International, we manufacture customized FIBC Bulk Bags according to our clients’ specific requirements, preferences, and needs. We offer the option of adding a liner during the manufacturing process to provide an additional protective layer for transporting wet and liquid products.
Form-Fit Liners are another option to consider. These liners are made of polyethylene and fit perfectly inside the FIBC Bag in a cube-shaped form. They are ideal for transporting wet and liquid materials and products, but they won’t make your FIBC Bags waterproof or watertight. Form-Fit Liners act as an additional protective layer for transporting wet and liquid products and materials.
How to Secure FIBC Bulk Bags?
To make FIBC Bulk Bags secure and protect the material, you can opt for a drawstring top that has a piece of rope or string to tighten the bag’s top and keep it closed tightly, preventing the bag’s contents from falling out of the bag. You can also opt for a spout top to cover the bag’s opening and to keep the materials inside the bag secured.
At Bulkcorp International, we offer customized FIBC Bulk Bags with various options for the bag’s opening (top) and closing (bottom) according to our clients’ needs and the contents they want to store and transport in the bag. Our team will assist in selecting the best top and bottom according to our clients’ requirements and preferences.
It is essential to ensure that the top and bottom of the bag are properly closed to prevent leakage, regardless of the top and bottom option you select.
In conclusion, FIBC Bulk Bags are neither watertight nor waterproof, but there are several ways to make them watertight and prevent the materials from leaking out of the bag. Adding a polyethylene liner or opting for a drawstring top, flap top, valve top, bottom spout, or gusseted bottom are some of the ways to achieve this.
At Bulkcorp International, we offer customized FIBC Bulk Bags with various options for the bag’s opening and closing to meet our clients’ specific requirements and preferences.
