If your business makes use of bulk bags, you should seriously consider purchasing used flexible intermediate bulk container (FIBC) bags.
The thread strands used to make bulk bags are woven together from polypropylene, which gives the bags their ability to retain significant quantities of weight. They can store a wide variety of items, including chemicals, fertilisers, fibreglass, food goods, grains, construction materials, and seeds, among other things.
Trunel is South Africa's most trusted source for high-quality bulk bags, plastic and polypropylene bags, and sheeting. We have used one tonne bags available for purchase, as well as new bulk bags in the following sizes: Five kg, 10 kg, 12.5 kg, 25 kg, 50 kg, 60 kg, 80 kg, 500-2000 kg.
We currently sell used bulk bags to the mining, chemical, agricultural, and mineral industries, and we thought you might be interested in knowing why to choose a secondhand bulk bags from Trunel Bags.
It's important to know that Trunel Bags conducts extensive quality control testing on all of its used FIBC bulk bags. We test each bag to ensure it can withstand the weight of a regular load while being stored, transported, and sent. Because the items are enclosed and protected within the FIBC, no additional containers are needed, reducing packaging costs. Because they are flat and stackable, they take up much less room in storage.
Some FIBC bags, in contrast to single-use plastic packaging, can be reused if their safety factor permits it. FIBCs should be discarded after usage if they have been contaminated with a specific chemical, although FIBCs that have been used to transport innocuous materials like agricultural goods, pet food, or human food products are frequently suitable for reuse in other sectors. Businesses in the agriculture and food processing industries can run more sustainably and less negatively on the environment because to this reusability.
Why not make the commitment to a sustainable solution, using sturdy, durable bags that are produced from recycled materials and can be used over and over again, rather than buying new bags, using them up, and having them end up in a landfill somewhere causing damage to the environment?
Polypropylene, a thermoplastic polymer, is used to make bulk bags. When heated, a thermoplastic becomes malleable and flexible, but when it cools, it hardens and becomes unyielding. Therefore, bulk bags are fabricated from a sturdy, impermeable material that serves as an efficient pest barrier and prevents water damage. Since agricultural, pet food, and food processing products are easy prey for pests, and mould growth can ruin an entire shipment, this type of material is crucial in these industries. The use of polypropylene large bags aids in preventing mould and moisture damage to perishable goods during transport.
Static electricity can build up within a large bag, which is a major issue when working with potentially hazardous materials like petroleum compounds. The good news is that FIBC bags are available in a variety of safety grades, from B to D, each of which provides a unique level of security. Although not antistatic, Type B bags are safe for transporting dry, combustible items. Bags of types C and D offer escalating levels of antistatic protection to keep workers safe.
