Flexible intermediate bulk container (FIBC), generally termed as big bags, bulk bags or jumbo bags that are used to transport material such as food grains, chemicals, fertilizers, and polymers. Polypropylene (PP) in the form of woven fabric is widely used to manufacture flexible intermediate bulk container (FIBC). In general, the load-carrying capacity of PP jumbo bags ranges from 200 Kg to 2,000 Kg. However, few customized PP jumbo bags can carry more than 2,000 Kg load.
- Increasing demand for convenient packaging bags for handling and transportation of industrial materials is fueling demand for polypropylene jumbo bags in agriculture, fertilizers, food, chemicals, and other end-use industries. Moreover, properties such as good electric insulation, durability, UV stability, excellent tensile strength, and less shipping cost are increasing popularity of these bags in these industries.
- Additionally, used PP jumbo bags can be recycled effectively and further repurposed into plastic applications such as trays, cables, and auto parts. Moreover, these bags can be reused by proper cleaning and inspection. Such factors are enhancing sustainability as well as circular economy and reducing plastic waste generation.
